One thing is for sure: Let Emily Henderson design a space and I will be all drooling in front of my Macbook (sorry for this too visual wording). Same effect occurred when I stumbled over her Fig House Lounge project. Imagine a spacious lounge open to the outdoor space, think of mid-century vibes and colour pops wherever you turn. Think of visual happiness galore! In her blog post she documents the entire design process including a full before and after coverage. In the end I had a hard time picking one photo of this fantastic lounge, but let’s give it a try and nail it down to three points that caught my eye:
- Gallery Wall: Put a gallery wall somewhere and my attention is guaranteed. The vintage style gallery wall in this example is an instant eye-catcher – it adds a personal and artsy vibe to the lounge.
- Colour Pops: The vibrant colour palette is breathtaking – mints, soft blue, pink, ochre, green – sometimes you have to be brave and stun everyone. But beware: This only works in a large space and with a unifying element or style that ties all colours together.
- Mid-Century Console: The wooden mid-century console in the back is a fantastic visual anchor in this shot. It perfectly complements the furniture in this lounge and creates an almost intimate, private atmosphere in this lounge.
