Happy Thursday and welcome to the series Why This Works… where I highlight a designed space and talk about why I love it so much! This next living room space was found on pinterest and seamlessly blends different styles to create an overall eclectic and fun mix:
I love the overall mix of patterns and styles in this space! The decorator was able to blend so many prints and styles together, without making the room look too full or busy- a hard thing to achieve! I love the straight lines in the sofa, upholstered in such a rich golden hue. This modern piece works well paired with the traditional houndstooth print in the wing chair, striking a nice balance. The wing chair has a dramatic, high back, making it seem more modern, yet the traditional upholstery gives a nod to a classic and timeless print. This print is seen again in a throw pillow for the sofa, which helps draw your eye around the entire space. The symmetry in the floor lamps makes the space appear more formal, yet the diverse end tables bring the space back to a more casual, eclectic vibe. The fresh flowers seen in the room also help to make the space feel lived in and casual. The layering of the area rugs gives the room added depth and interest, also tying in the colors of the houndstooth print chair. The neutral wall color is a nice backdrop to all of the color and pattern seen in the rest of the space. The overscaled mirror above the fireplace is a great focal point, adding more shape and dimension to the room. Overall, this space works!
