Why This Room Caught My Eye

14 January 2014 0


Are you ready for some interior candy on this Tuesday? If so, this is the place to be! This week’s room is the living room of the Swedish photographer Therese Winberg in Stockholm. No need to mention that she herself shot this great photos and more of her home for Plaza Interiör – see it here.

But why did this room catch my eye? Before I come to any details I am absolutely fascinated by the abundance of daylight in this airy, high room. The room’s dominating white has been counteracted by various colorful accents:

  • Blue Sofa: The indigo blue sofa is an anchor in this room’s styling. It sets the tone and creates a focal point underneath the large window. The dark blue hue is accentuated by cushions in the same colour family and neutral shades. Moreover, the sofa seems very, very comfy if you ask me.
  • Green Accents: A great partner for the blue colour is green. Here it’s mainly plants and flowers that add a dash of green as well as various decorative objects such as green glass bottles and vases. Notice how fabulous coloured glass vases and containers look on a windowsill!
  • Vintage Rug: The grey rug in a vintage optic is another visual highlight. Its distressed look perfectly matches the vintage table and chairs to the left and the grey colour ties the entire concept together – the sofa, its cushions, the grey chair.
Would this room catch your eye too? And if so, why?

    I love that its so bright and light. It’s not been over-furnished, what is in the room is key and the balance between colour and texture is spot on, creating a welcoming space. Sometimes its key taking extra time to really consider each item of furniture needed in a room and choosing a feature piece, which will bring style and design without having to cram too much else in. The blue sofa above is definitely the key focal point for me and the accented glass pieces and plants really drawer the colour out of the rug and side unit, adding a new depth to the room :O

    I love the shades of gray that are repeated in the chair upholstery and the cushions on the sofa, and wall lamp. The repetition moves your attention around the room.

      Exactly my point, Cyndi! It sort of frames the entire interior.

    What a serene urban living space! Love that couch too and how the softer finishes contrast with the industrial vibe from the dining table and chairs. That window, high ceiling, and fresh white walls … I WANT in CANADA!
