If I have a spare moment, you can most likely find me leafing through magazines or design books in search of inspiration or furthering my professional education. Often I can get through things pretty quickly but every once in a while I find a picture that stops me in my tracks. Sometimes, I stop because there are key elements I'm drawn to, sometimes it's because there is nothing appealing and I stop to improve it in my head. Rarely though, do I find pictures that inspire me in total...not so with the shot above. I was immediately hooked.
What do I love about his room, you ask? Here we go:
A few years ago, at home, I switched to a neutral palette for my upholstered pieces. What fun it's been to throw colorful pillows like these on my sofas and chairs. Get tired of one color scheme, find a new pillow and create a brand new look. Don't underestimate the power of a 20" square piece of material. It can be transforming!
