I am a big believer in mixing. I love to see different styles of furniture working together for an eclectic, lived-in vibe. Anything too matchy-matchy and I kind of freak out. It's a delicate balance that can't really be formulated; you want to create an aesthetic that feels natural, fresh, and fun. This past Monday I met with a client and together we finalized a living room palette that we are both thrilled about. It's such a wonderful feeling as an interior designer to be able to communicate your vision in a way that excites your client. As per my usual fashion, I kept the larger pieces neutral and brought in color through artwork and accessories. The focal point will be a large abstract painting with a vibrant mix of blues, yellows and grays:
We decided on the Carlisle sofa from Pottery Barn to replace their existing sectional. I couldn't resist the traditional English roll arm, and my client couldn't resist the comfort of it! Mother of pearl lamps, faux bamboo side tables and a zebra hide will also be thrown in to the mix. I can't wait to see it all come together!
Are you having a good week? I am happy but quite exhausted- too bad it's only Wednesday! I am really looking forward to that Australian getaway coming up in 9 weeks.... counting down the days.... ;)
