What I love about interior styling is the omnipresent opportunity to kick off a new project. You know, in those moments when you are lying on your sofa and looking around your home and then you discover that one corner that could really handle a little redo. Like now. Like immediately. At least I am that kind of guy. My eye gets challenged by a tiny detail and I have to start an immediate restyling project. I never finish a new vignette at once, it always takes a day or two, but the impulse to start is adamant.
When I spotted this interior styling shot by photographer Joanna Henderson for You Magazine I had an instant smile on my face. The playful use of colors, shapes, sizes, dimensions and placement caught my eye.
- Quirky Details: Little, quirky details always tell a personal story. The retro wooden telephone, the blue bear figure, the romantic vintage mirror with a bow and two stripes of colorful Washi tape – the styling is pretty happy and inviting.
- Colour Surprise: I love the surprising color details in this setting. The yellow legs of the side table are an excellent example for unexpected color surprises in interiors.
- Vintage Touch: The use of color and shapes makes this styling vignette pretty contemporary. However, the stylist used some vintage touches to counteract the reference to one specific period thus making it more interesting and inspiring.
