Lately, everyone has been a bit more conscious of their carbon footprint…and rightfully so. It is important that we appreciate what the Earth provides us naturally. In today’s society green living and conserving precious resources is a way of contributing to changing how we live for the better.
There has been a rediscovered interest in natural materials when it comes to interior design. Incorporating natural materials in the home has been around for centuries. A way to show off natures beauty and live with it daily. Bringing nature into your home creates both character and warmth, welcoming and providing peace to those who inhabit the space. There are so many ways you can achieve this look in the design of your own home. Whether in the middle of renovating or just adding something new be inspired to look at nature. Here are a few visuals to get your gears turning.
Lately, I have been obsessed with the color blue. Royal blue velvets, sapphire blue silks, peacock suede and all the variations in between. I guess you can say, I have a love affair with this calming and also energizing hue. Blue is such a classic color and can be used in so many ways. For instance, you can add a navy blue wall color to a room to create drama… or use an antiqued french blue accent piece for a soft and sophisticated addition.
Take a look at a few spaces I have fallen head over heels for and tell me what you think.
Elegant rooms showcase fine design featuring style and grace. They are neither flashy nor stuffy. Rather cleverly designed functional spaces. The best way to create an elegant space of your own is to minimize the use of current trends in your home. Instead focus on achieving an elegant edge utilizing stylish pieces that are classic and will be around for many years to come. There are a few things to keep in mind to help you along the way.
1. Introduce classic lines and soft curves.
2. Add comfortable fabrics and textures.
3. Keep in mind the natural flow of light (do not block with furniture placement).
4. Maintain symmetrical balance and proportions
Ultimately maintain a youthful, fresh approach to a traditional design aesthetic. This is the perfect recipe for a perfectly designed space. Take a look at a few inspirational pictures to get you on your way.
Hello everyone! Let me just tell you I am all about eclectic, very glamorous interiors but fell in love with the naturally serene interiors below. I would say these spaces are still eclectic in a natural kind-of-way. I could only imagine living in each and every one of these spaces. They are all so amazing! Warm, inviting and oh, so beautiful.
I absolutely love the color green. From jade to emerald, mossy green or hints of sage, I love them all. They are all so wonderful and can be incorporated in your home through the use of furniture pieces, home décor or just simply adding plants. Green tends to be restful and soothing to the eye. Along with offering a deep sense of renewal and harmony to any space.
Here are a few images I found that have me ready to add green everywhere in my home. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
