Why This Room Caught My Eye

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. 
How do you like this living room?

    The living room looks great. I like the colors, the tables and pillows. The lamp is great!

    oh yes! I can see why this room caught your eye 🙂 The art (especially the one of the lady) really stands out to me too.

    A plant sitting in the midst of the center grouping – unusual, I like it!

      Yes, that’s what I thought too when I saw the pic for the first time. But as a plant lover I fully related to it:-)

    I thought this was your home! Is is gently shouting your name with excitement! I feel the same way too when it comes to a “lived in” look…at my house there are plenty of dog toys and cookie crumbles so no glossy look going on. As always, your sharing is lovely. 🙂 Jocelyn xx

      It could definitely be my home, Jocelyn! It’s pretty much my style – it has grey, blue and houseplants. Love it!

    Love the different textures and those round tables. I personally would opt for more color, but I like that they added that tiny bit of blue to keep the eye from getting too bored.

      I would probably inject a tiny bit of yellow as a visual surprise – maybe a yellow cushion or a yellow throw:-) Love the combination grey-blue-yellow.

    It is looking awesome and you are right it give the feelings like real home. I loved the different patterned pillows and the rug. I didn’t like the lamp. I think if you hang a beautifully designed pendant lamp that will look better. Anyhow, the room is looking awesome and adorable.
