Sometimes simplicity is the most wonderful thing. Don't you think? This is so fantastic, I know this is not how one would live- believe me I know that all too well. But I love the idea of the whole space painted the same color with simple wood detailing to keep it interesting. I can just imagine it with a great classic yet modern chandelier and some interesting furnishings. What about you- what would you do?
I am completely in love with this shop! I have a thing for a mix of home goods and fashion though. I think that they go hand in hand and that typically those who love to decorate love to dress in a similar fashion. Don't you think?
This space is fantastic, one of those shops I could spend too much money in and come home feeling very inspired! I love the way the bright colors of the clothing play off of the relaxed darker furnishings.
One Kings Lane is currently running a color event. Of course my favorites are the neutrals.. There are some great pieces here to get you going on a space with grey accents. I am loving the sofa and the rug a little too much I think! If you just want to add a touch of my favorite neutral I am thinking you need these patent leather bound books..
The grey chesterfield covers so many many things and this one is amazing in its funky modern way. So perfect in this space. Wishing you a wonderful week filled with gorgeous sofas... I am dreaming of the time when mine will come home!
This issue of Elle decor was super fantastic in my opinion! The sofas in the first image make my head spin- they are so beautiful. I love the non traditional furniture placement and sizing, it shows a very creative mind to think outside the normal relationships of pieces. Altogether a beautiful space.
So I am completely smitten with the tufted vintage style sofa, chesterfield or not I am loving the fun styles out there. I have a simple high back sofa in my living room from Cisco brothers that has served me well for years- I think 7 or 8 years to be exact and it is still in great shape. However, you know as well as anybody that girls like me like to day dream. When I day dream it is about furniture and travel typically. (the photo below makes me weak!) So anyway long story short, or vice versa now, I was not shopping for a sofa but you know how things happen when you least expect it, I found a beauty that I could not resist!
This one is so cute with the contrast of the nail heads...
This little beauty looks vintage but it is not..
Love the yellow but I know it is not for me...
So here she is my new to me vintage sofa... LOVE LOVE LOVE the only question now is which fabric and which color??
Do I go with linen in a natural tone, linen in a charcoal grey, velvet in a light grey?? Oh the delimas I get myself into!
What do you think? I am over the moon- it was the perfect find for a ridiculously low price (I am not sure I should say). I will say that flea market shopping is some of the best shopping EVER!
I don't know what it is but I currently adore the tufted chairs and sofas. In a natural linen or a soft blue- even leather makes me want them!! They are out there in plenty of styles and sizes- so you can find one that is just perfect for you. This style is traditionally called Chesterfield with it's high arms and tufting. There are a few different takes on these pieces here and they are all just perfect. Tufted pieces work with everything and are being used more and more in transitional design these days.
