I'm Creating a New Look for My HomeMarch 26th, 2014 in blog, projects
I typically tend to lean toward the traditional, European eclectic kind of look. Lots of architecture, deep colors, oversized furniture, and original painted furniture. I still love all of those elements, but I wanted to freshen up my look a bit and make a move towards modern. My modern is a little more comfortable and a little less sterile than many of you might envision as modern or contemporary. Baby steps!
On another note...I'm hearing a lot of chatter that industrial is dead. To that that I say...poppycock! First of all if you love industrial does it matter that others are saying it's no longer in vogue? Secondly, i believe that there are so many different options in how you can present industrial in your home. It's all in the mix. So no matter what style your prefer industrial can be a very welcome piece of your overall design. OK...I'm getting off my soap box now. :)
Let's talk about the mix. I purcahsed everything in this room on different days and different types of shopping venues. I never carry a notebook with me when designing anything. I just trust my gut. If you buy only what you truly love it will all come togeter and put a smile on your face. Funny how that works.
You'll be seeing the entire room when it is finished, but that may be awhile. Until then here is a sneak peek!
Tip of the day. Buy what you love, forget about what's trending now, and trust your gut. That is the only way I know how to create an environment that is truly timeless and suits the person living in the home...you! I call it the Burger King method of design.
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
