What I Like About This Room
Over the last three years I’ve written about many things. From organizing tips to the next big color to designing with one color. But now I thought I would do something a little different. For the next few articles I want to show you some designs I really like and explain why.
This first room is a favorite. The neutral tones evoke an understated elegance. It allows many things to take center stage without being too loud. It’s comfortable and all things play well together. Now it’s a little ‘too’ staged for my taste, so I would many a few subtle changes without losing the integrity of the design.
1. Let’s add window treatments for some softness. Adding roller shades or drapery panels creates another layer of interest.
2. I would change the table scape on the coffee table. Adding lower items allows you and your guests to converse without obstruction.
3. I might consider using a smaller mirror over the fireplace. It seems a bit large and heavy.
Other than those few changes, this is a room I could live with. What are your thoughts? Let me know.
