We love "Inspired Styles." It is an anthology of the ideas, creative palettes and select works of fifteen exemplars of interior style. Each designer describes what inspires and guides their unique aesthetic. With vibrant photographs depicting their work and first-person texts by the designers themselves, the book is not only an objet d'art, it is an invaluable reference for both amateurs and professionals who aspire towards remarkable interiors and living spaces.
In a recently completed beach condo, we purchased these wall strips from CB2 and created artwork in the master bathroom. A set of 3 costs $129. One set provides a clean and modern feel or you can make a statement by layering multiple sets as shown below.
We love this dusty plum colored loveseat from Lee Industries. This would be a perfect addition to a room either opposite a small breakfast table or a built in banquette, or placed in a living room or family room. Also, depending on the type of fabric you choose, this piece can work in either a modern or traditional home. It's a great classically lined and versatile piece for any home.
Often times, when designing a space that leans towards a particular style, it’s easy to stay within the “rules” of that style. Here’s a great example of stepping out of the box and juxtaposing modern artwork in a room that otherwise could be described as fairly traditional or classic.
