Morning. Thank you for all your fabulous feedback on the changes I had in mind for the blog much appreciated. It will take us a couple of weeks to put into action, as I want to tweak the design but it’s in the schedule so hopefully it won’t take that long.
I thought this morning we might critically look at an image and analyse why it works. Pulling a room together takes a bit of skill and for some of us its easier than others but when you figure out how to make it work its like having that perfect tool kit, it makes everything that much easier.
The room is question is this one;
Simple, beautiful but why exactly does it work?
1. First and foremost the colour palette is reigned in see how everything blends harmoniously in this space not one thing jars.
2. Focal points. Never have one always have more. The reason to delight the eye! In this space the sofa is the main focal point but then the eye gets pulled to the desk and then the architecture so is travels around the room, stopping off here and there as it goes.
3. Layers . I am obsessed with layers. The more layers or areas you have in a space the more intriguing it will read and because that colour palette is reigned in you can get away with more than you ever thought.
4. Lively rhythm. In rooms we don’t want everything the same height (reads as too boring) so throw in some verticals like a floor lamp as these guys have done. Layer small accessories in front of larger accessories and you’ll get this fantastic lively rhythm going on.
Easy when you know how right ?
