Happy Friday and welcome to the series Why This Works… where I highlight a designed space and discuss why I think it’s amazing! Today’s living room space is worldly, modern, eclectic and traditional. It’s a great blend of some of my favorite styles. Enjoy!
The white walls give a neutral backdrop, allowing the unique blend of furniture and accessories to stand out. This mix of traditional and modern seating give this room a designed over time look and makes the space feel eclectic and unique to the homeowners. I think the choices in seating are very creative, pairing this large, leather chesterfield sofa with a mid century modern occasional chair. The small sofa has clean, modern lines and is covered in white, allowing the pillows and rustic side tables to take center stage. The mix of modern with rustic is one of my favorite pairings, and is done so well in this room. The dramatic world map art on the wall and globe accessories give the space a sense of history, charm and warmth, while the bold, arched floor lamp is a nod to modern design. The space also has a whimsical feel, with the vingettes behind the white sofa and to the right of the image, allowing you to feel relaxed and not make the space feel contrived. The two area rugs in the room give the space a layered look and warms up the hard surface flooring. The coffee table is large and works well paired with the dramatic seating in the space. The scale of the table flows well with entertaining, making it easy for people to find a space for their drink! Overall, this space works!
