Quick Home Decoration: Simple Console Styling

May 23, 2013 0


With today’s post I would just like to stress how easy it is to redesign a certain area of your home by just switching through a few things. I live in a super small apartment and it’s always refreshing to change the vibe and atmosphere – and this can be achieved in just a few steps!

I am not highlighting the exceptional vignettes on my little living room console, I am rather drawing the attention to the fact that both stylings worked in my apartment and changed the atmosphere consequently. Whereas the first styling is more neutral and and with references to the Mediterranean culture, the second one is vibrant, exotic and colourful. 

In both cases the vignette was rooted in one central piece – the pictures. In the left styling it is a black and white photography of cubic buildings on the Italian island of Stromboli. This inspired me to create a Mediterranean atmosphere by adding blue hues (the books, the blue eye from Greece, the Aloe Vera and cactus, the vintage elements). The second styling was rooted in the large canvas print with a Mexican theme (kindly offered by AllPosters.de, thank you!). It brought its colours into the vignette as well as the use of fruits (handy as a snack in the living room) and again my beloved Aloe Vera plant from Spain. One, two, three and it was done. All with things that you have at home. So what about you, do you like to create little vignettes at home?

    Loving both of them but the new one has definitely my vote with it’s exotic colors. Need to tackle some vignettes as well after catching up on Justina’s class I found out about through your blog. Have a lovely day!

    These are definitely summer colors. A nice alternative when it’s all gray outside. Well done, Igor :)

    Igor, I’m amazed at the eclectic array of objects you have in your place :-) Your examples show a great point that you can indeed style a console and get 2 very different looks. Both looks are beautifully styled. xD
