Some fabulous random inspiration for ya’. I love the tone on tone neutrals in this first pic. The art above the fireplace adds just enough warmth to the room with splashes of yellow. One of the best things about this room is the warm light streaming through the big french doors, although everything is pretty fabulous is this room.
I love the symmetry in this room. Sometimes symmetry is just the way to go. I also love how they separated the large room with two different seating arrangements (one in front of the sofa, and one behind). This is such a great way to make a large room more intimate. A great suggestion when arranging furniture, put the sofa in the center of the room and not against the wall (if there is any possible way to do so). It creates a much more interesting designer look and breaks up an open floor plan by visually creating separate spaces.
The warmth in this room is amazing. yet everything in the room isn’t dark and overpowering (an easy mistake I see people make when trying to create a warm color palette). The key: add splashes of warm color in a mostly neutral room. I love how they placed the large art piece above the fireplace, in cool blue tones, to break up the warm tones. This creates just enough contrast to relax the eye, another reason why this room is not overwhelmingly warm and dark.
Ah, my favorite color, pink. Just a few splashes will due. The window treatment is amazing in this room. This classic with a great pleated detail is fabulous, and is paired with panels in the same fabric (just goes to show that you can use different window treatment styles in the same room in some cases). Love the soft linen sofa!
Wow, warm gold and beige tones with white walls! It does work! I have been saying this to my clients for years and this is such a great picture to dig up for a little backup now’n'then. I love the splashes of warm orange and the artwork is amazing.
I love the yellow sofa, and these last two rooms happens to be some of the few times I say white walls rock! Key here, fill the room with color and texture elsewhere, and the walls can be white and fabulous. Another key, you simply must have fabulous artwork on white walls.
