It’s wintertime and, where I live, the temps are below freezing and the skies are grey. Grey with smoggy inversion as much as sun-less-ness, which makes things outside particularly dismal. That’s why, when I stumbled across this living room photo, I couldn’t take my eyes off it. Neither could I keep from wishing I was there – there, in the middle of that sofa on the left, to be exact, with a throw blanket and a book in my hand but my gaze permanently strayed to that gallery wall. Such a lovely space. I’d love to spend an afternoon here, and let me tell you why:
1. Soft, rich colors.
Starting with those gorgeous honey-toned wood floors and moving immediately up to the buttery velvet sofas, the space evokes warmth and welcome. The golden hues are echoed within the gallery wall and tempered by plenty of fresh whiteness on the walls and fireplace. The palette is simultaneously elegant and soothing…not exactly an easy combination to strike.
