Happy Wednesday! I am back for another installment of Why This Works. Today’s space is a living room seen in Better Homes and Gardens. I thought this space really spoke to what I was discussing in my last post and you’ll soon see why!
In my last post, I talked about using several colors in a room and how to make that work. If you have a common thread for all of those colors to come together, then you can sprinkle each color around the room and it will make sense. In this space, the color palette is brought together in the beautiful Chiang Mai dragon ottoman. The raspberry colored side table, peacock art, bright blue throw and pillow and the magenta geometric pillow, all are tied in with that ottoman. The bright huesÂ are then balanced with the neutral seating, wall color and area rug. The black window trim makes you stop and take notice and then the calm white walls tone down the window trim. Touches of nature are brought in with the tall fiddle leaf fig plant and vase of fresh flowers. There is so much crazy good balance and proportion going on in this room! The light area rug is a great opposite to the dark, warm wood floors and leather club chair. The woven basket tray on the colorful ottoman makes the room feel relaxed, as to not take itself too seriously. And the ceiling fan, although not the most amazing accent, shows that the room is also lived in and functional.
What are your thoughts???
