Today I was shuffling things around in my home. I moved books, stacked them differently, added a few books to my windowsill, changed the placement of vases. After all the commotion I finally sighed and said: oh, well. Everything felt ok but not perfect. But on the second glance I realized that the perfection lies in the imperfection. In that little aspect that makes our home look real. Lived in. Not like an over styled home tour in a glossy interiors magazine. Do you know what I mean?
Even today’s eye-catching room seems to be in this category of a warm, lived-in home. What exactly caught my eye? Here we go:
- Grey & Blue Scheme: Oh yes, my kind of colour scheme here. I love grey and blue hues in combination. I mean, that is how my home looks like too – with a dash of yellow injected for visual happiness. Here the colour combination creates a perfectly comfy and serene atmosphere.
- Home Plants: Here he comes again, the ‘Urban Jungle Blogger’ in me – show me some home plants and I’m all smiling. The cacti/succulents on the windowsill and the fig tree in front – just the right addition to this lovely room.
- Various Patterns & Textures: The equation here is classic in interior design: calm and neutral walls, rug and sofa create the best stage for a plethora of patterns and textures to add interest to a room. Play with cushion sizes, shapes and patterns, throw in a variety of textures like the sheepskin in the front, and the visual impact is spot on.
