Remember when I blogged about putting chairs in odd corners?

image

I intially blogged about ways to make use of odd corners and featured the pic below. You can see that post here. Then I came across Coco & Kelley’s post showcasing the entire home. It’s dark and moody and the palette consists of just gray, white and black. The textures and layering allows the space to feel cozy and not become boring. It’s very masculine but fine for a woman too.

Then I saw the kitchen and realized I also blogged about that on my decorating with cutting boards post.

I love coming across home tours of rooms I’ve blogged about before. You can see all of the times it has happened in my Remember When archives.

Love the carpeting with calligraphy printed. This little office space looks like a red carpet and the floor is like a movie script…

Just a blush, black & gray collage…

image

I made a collage using a blush, gray, black & white color scheme and mixed different styles for seating. Adding a throw of sorts to any caged seating makes it more comfortable and withstanding the use of sofa or dining sets adds interest. Try swapping out the head chairs of a formal dining area or adding a bench to one side of the table. Mixing tables or lamps can also keep a space eclectic. The goal in design is to make a space feel collected over time and not bought in one store.

Tuesday’s Tips: Rule of thumb for hanging art

image

They say art is best hung 5-9″ from the top of the headboard, sofa or console. I want to add that sometimes it’s best to eye it. You want the art to be eye level with an average height person and not hung too high. At the same time scale is key. If you have tall ceilings you want to ensure the art or mirror selected will actually fill the space. If you purchase a canvas abstract piece or mirror displayed horizontally, play with it and see how it will look vertically. Don’t shy away from buying in 3′s and if there is a print you like that is small, go to places like Michael’s to have a frame custom made with a large mat. Larger mats and frames can make any small print appear more grand. You can also add more art to create a gallery wall to fill up wall space.
