Why This Room Caught My Eye

Every Tuesday I am musing about a room that caught my eye. And this Tuesday is no exception. So I roamed the net and found a room that on the first sight probably lacks that flashy, catchy happiness factor, but still it kept my attention through its lived-in, cosy and very personal styling. It is a room to be. A room to live. Hence, I’d say it’s happy after all! Here are three elements that caught my eye:
  • Statement art piece: Opt for a personal art piece. Think of a photography that you’ve taken or a good friend. Nowadays you can even get your Instagrams on canvas (you remember this) so you can add a very personal statement to your room.
  • Rough, linen bedspread: Go for a rough, crinkled linen bedspread in a muted hue to bring the calmness of the winter nature into your home. And the tactile feel is unrivaled. 
  • Vintage lighting: How about sourcing some vintage desklamps on a flea market and transform them into sconces for your bedroom? A little touch of industrial style definitely accentuated this room and adds interest.
So, anything you liked here? Let me know!

    I love the unusual combination of cushions on the bed – am intrigued by that egg (?) one!

      I was very close to mentioning the cushions, too! It is do quirky, like a stone or an egg! Definitely an eye-catcher!

    I like the rough and casual nature of this room. I also agree with all the points you bring to light. The bed spread is very appealing since I’m not at all a fan of ironing 😉
