Why This Room Caught My Eye

10 June 2014 0


I often wonder what is the difference between those amazingly looking, perfectly styled and photographed rooms and the daily, mundane look of my home. In most cases it is a somewhat staged, deliberately styled rooms for shootings as opposed to the daily traces of real life when we look around us. 

But that doesn’t mean that our homes are less stylish or glamorous. They are simply lived-in and seen live whereas the other rooms are a sole moment of styling and decorating. However, I love to look for inspiration in those styled rooms and then apply certain discoveries in my own home. 

One of those rooms that caught my eye is this living room. Here’s what caught my eye in particular:

  • Pink Accents: Since the entire room is a mellow and refined composition of neutral hues, the pink accents stood out immediately. I couldn’t help but notice the pink accents on the cushions (even though it is not my favorite colour) – it definitely makes a statement in such a colour palette.
  • Wonderful Sofa: This sofa is so beautiful, I literally kept my eye on it for a good while. It reminds me of similar sofas I have seen from &Tradition and Bolia. I love the puffy look in comparison to the wooden framing. Maybe someone knows the designer or brand of this sofa? If so, let me know!
  • Grey Colour Coding: The grey palette is very evident and eye-catching in this living room. I get the idea that colour coding is key to those refined, sophisticated looks of interiors. So that is the easiest aspect to start redecorating projects at home. Look around and start colour coding in your home too!

    I came across that house tour as well and there was plenty that caught my eye, e.g. that flower pot that I absolutely love. (I even have a few photos lined up on the blog.) For me the styling of this particular space would have been perfect had there been some books on the table … I’m just saying 😉

      Good point and you are right – it would make it a little bit more lived-in!!
