Over the weekend I spent a good portion of my down time looking at properties for sale on Domain and thinking about how I’d decorate them if they were mine. In an ideal world I’d have a few different houses in various locations that would suit the different colours and styles I love (country house, beach house, mountain chalet, modern city pad etc.) I do like to dream! I’m quite taken with the very dark blue (or is it black?) walls and door above for an entryway, especially mixed with the interesting shapes and collections in this Serena & Lily ad.
Again, it’s all about contrasting styles and shapes (and blues) in this room. The lack of symmetry in the furniture layout, the off-centre rug and the small central table shouldn’t work, but they do combine to make this room more relaxed and ‘young’. The fiddle leaf figs trees and pink flowers are the stars here though.
Relaxed, rustic, casual, textured: all perfect for my beach house (above)..
There’s a lot going on here (above), but it’s a fun space and I like the white and neutral base with the colours added through cushions.
The soft greys, blues and pinks here would be perfect for a reading corner in my country cottage, or perhaps a ladies’ guest room?
Have a great Monday!
