This room design is so well done. That's why it is featured in House Beautiful! All the principals and elements of design are present. I love the eclectic combination of colors, patterns, and furnishings, as well as the mix of materials (wood, metal, ceramic/porcelain). I love to incorporate "mismatched" tables into my room designs, and this space does exactly that! Texture is another favorite element I like to infuse in designs, regardless of how sleek or modern a space is. This room showcases several textural elements - natural flowering branches, wood tones, layered accessories, soft fabrics, etc. The photographed art on the wall also brings an unexpected element to the room. I love "quirk"!
My favorite part of the room is the cozy sitting area in the bottom photo. I love when traditional pieces are updated to feel more modern. In this case, the classic wingback chairs were given a more modern feel with soft yellow upholstery (plus "ikat" sides) and nailhead trim. Overall, this room is inviting and approachable. It is the perfect combination of casual elegance energized with color, pattern, and fun! For more featured spaces, click here.
