Happy Friday! Welcome to the series, Why This Works… where I show a designed space and discuss why (I think) it’s perfection. Today’s room is a gorgeous room living designed by Patrick Wade and featured in House Beautiful. I could see myself relaxing in this space, as it is casual, comfortable and very chic.
I am not sure what drew me to the room more- the bold printed rugs, the soft muted colors or the effortless way the room stays both chic and casual- maybe it’s a combination of it all! Patrick Wade is the designer and homeowner to this space he shares with partner Dave DeMattei. I love the pops of gold and bright orange in the space, against the more muted neutral tones. I love the traditional wingback chair paired with the more sleek lines of the sofa and occasional chair. The white, tulip style side table next to the sofa looks great with colorful flowers and fruit on top! I love the rustic simplicity of the ladder and greenery paired with the geometric, bold area rugs. (And I love the layered look of area rugs! It gives the space added texture and interest.) The task lighting is fun and modern and works so well with the creative, artist vibe in the room. Overall, this space is a blend of great design styles, it’s casual and chic, while also being so liveable!
