Learning from Ann Marie and Donna during the Style at Home shoots (here + here), less is definitely more and that a "live-in" relaxed look (instead of all straight up tidy) is what graces the glossy pages of the magazines these days. These are my attempts for (1) cheerful sunday munch, (2) bright & sumptuous sanctuary, and (3) charming flower power that is perfectly spring.
Colors, textures, and patterns are my three best friends to create an impactful and dynamic living experience in a rental where no paint nor wallpaper is allowed. The layering of these three elements via foundation pieces (i.e. sofa, chair, and rug), decorative pillows, accessories, and original artwork creates visual interests, gives depth, and breathes life into the space.
The bedroom is absolutely sensational I am telling you. Not that I have any urge to put makeup on every morning, but with the huge floor to ceiling window flooding the room with beautifully bright ray + intricate pattern play at the drapes, I sure do want to hang out here!
That's it for now ... until the final reveal for lots of tricks and lessons I learned at Project Rental. Happy Monday folks!
