All in the details…

Quick – What are the first two things your eyes are drawn to in this space? For me, it’s the couch and the wall art. I love the trick in place here – To make your most prized pieces or collections pop, set them up against a monochromatic/neutral background. The caramel color of the couch and bright colors in the art are the absolute stars when placed in front of a room awash in gray. This is definitely one of those things that I implore you to try at home.

1…Another thing I really love about this space is how broken down and simplified it is. If you notice, the windows are actually devoid of coverings or curtains – I think this was a great way to really make those big beautiful windows act as a focal point.

2…I can’t help but reiterate the artwork. Although asymmetrical gallery walls with eclectic frames and arrangements are all the rage these days, there’s definitely something to be said about a nice streamlined collection, hung end to end, top to bottom. Just lovely…

3…We are absolute (but willing) slaves to our three pets. Our mini family is our pride and joy, and I am more than happy to bend over backwards to accommodate their whims. Case in point, this adorable but classy dog bed. It’s got this great gold piping along the side and is surrounded in a fabulous spotted fabric that ties in the gray of the walls. Let’s move past the generic pillows and beds from the pet store and create something worth showing off! If you’re looking for a great DIY tutorial, Yellow Brick Home recently posted one you might want to try.

    I agree — the gray wall really makes the artwork pop! I just painted my bathroom gray, but I missed on the tone (it’s bluer than I wanted). I’m trying to get used to it, but I think I’m just going to have to bite the bullet and repaint with a more neutral gray. Any suggestions?

      Bummer…Yeah the best thing I can tell you is to just reprint it. I’m fixing my own paint mistake over the weekend!! Paint samples are your best friend…

    I wonder about the no curtain thing, how do they deal with all that blinding sunlight? Although it totally looks amazing!
    I am gushing at the sweet doggy from Yellow Brick Home!
