Elegant Edge

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. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Designer Highlight

While surfing the internet for some design inspiration I came across interior designer Vincente Wolf. I have come across his work before but for some reason have been a bit more intrigued most recently. His style reflects a very clean and simple sense of design. You could say he is the “Master of the Minimal.” That being said even though his interiors are simple they do not lack impact. Vincente Wolf’s interiors seem to tie in minimalism and luxury, all the while maintaining a sense of comfort. He incorporates one-of-a-kind pieces from all over the world to create an amazing composition within a home.

His design style is quite different from my own but I admire his talent of constraint. He is able to show great discipline through his use of color palette, furniture placement and choice of textiles in his designs. Check out some of his work below.
