Happy Friday! It is time for the series Why This Works… where I highlight a designed space and talk about why I think it’s perfection. Today, I am showing you the living room of one of my favorite design bloggers. (I am sure you already read her blog!) Her blog is a daily read for me- Kirsten of 6th Street Design School. I love her stylish approach to design and all of the wonderful etsy sources she introduces. In a guest post she wrote here, she talked about how her style has evolved and her home is now a true reflection of her design style- I love that! That thought really stuck with me, because I think it’s so important to be able to put your own stamp on your space and include your personality and personal style into your home! And she has done that so well.
This room works so well- it has a great mix of color, it’s fun, inviting and stylish! The lumbar bird pillow on the side chair helps to pull all of the wonderful colors together, and then she uses these same colors throughout the space. It all looks so effortless, but so much thought and design has gone into this room. I love the fun, modern Love art to the right of the window, mixed in with the more traditional silouette art on the left side. The beautiful pink color in the lumbar pillow and Love art is seen again in the whimsical flower on the coffee table. I love that she has kept the walls and furniture neutral, but infused pops of color in the drapery and accessories. It gives the room such a great balance. The dramatic, overscaled clock and symmetrical lamps works great with the casual feel of the coffee table books stacked on each other. And of course, personal touches always make a space- the monogrammed pillow adds a personal, family touch that makes this space feel warm, inviting and oh so stylish!
