There are times when a room needs a little pizazz. It can be the paint color on the walls, the fabric choice for the drapes, or the had to have piece of furniture that takes your space to the next level. Whatever makes the space pop can be the talk of the town when people come to visit. For me, I always go back to this color palette- my favorite colors that when grouped together- are unstoppable. I adore deep browns paired with blue grays, dark creams and whites. My living room is painted Mink by Benjamin Moore. It is an amazingly dark brown color, that almost looks black. I was a little afraid when I saw the paint chip, knowing that all of my walls would be that color! Luckily, we get a ton of natural light in the room, that when paired with a cream carpet, it works. So far, we have a huge starburst mirror, in a rust bronze that dominates the main wall. We brought in creamy gold drapes and have started to use white and blue gray accent pillows. We have two antique furniture pieces in the space, paired with table lamps with very modern drum shades. For the most part, the space is still unfurnished, because we are still trying to find the right pizazz to add to the room. I was thinking of a deep, brown velvet sofa with some occasional chairs in a fabric that compliments the four fav colors! I also thought of a sleek, clear acrylic table in front of the couch, to blend modern with traditional. I am wondering what you think! What else could fit in the space to make a statement? Here are some of my design inspirations taken from Elle Decor’s look book and Sunset.
I love this space! Elegant and comfortable.

Again, the beautiful dark brown sofas! Here, the wall color is much lighter, and the space also works beautifully. Also feautured in Elle Decor. Photo taken by Roger Davies. Designed by Jamie Creel and Marco Scarani.
