Relax Into Simplicity
Simplicity in our environment fosters a feeling of calm and order inside ourselves. Surround yourself with a festival of neutral tones to create an atmosphere of comfort and elegance.
Use furniture to define your living room area in an open floor plan space. Oatmeal-colored linen sofas feature tufting around the entire piece. A cable knit throw and pillows of contrasting fabrics and textures make for a cozy feeling.
Stunning ink-blot black and white chairs with exposed nail heads introduce a woven Ikat-inspired pattern to the room. A densely-woven wicker coffee table features carved wooden dove-grey legs with black glaze. A piece of mirror on top provides a beautiful surface for placing decorations, a vase or a cup of coffee.
The geometric-patterned, traditional area rug pulls together the look while adding depth and warmth. The circles within the pattern are echoed in the distinctive design on the door of the curio cabinet. When combining patterns, make one big and one small – or use the same color palette. And, when in doubt, consult a professional.
On a sideboard, a painting of a horse with subtle blues compliments two polished deep-blue lamps with grey linen shades. The built-in entertainment center contains only antique books, which create beautiful patterns and designs, instead of a variety of objects.
