You know how I love me some fresh white walls, warm, natural materials, and a curated, global vibe…
So you know that I loved this room from the second I saw it! It’s a great example of mixing woods and wovens in different textures, and also a great layout for an open floor plan or loft. I always struggled with that at my old place – where to put the pieces so that it made sense.
The mini rug under the dining table is an interesting choice – it definitely defines the space, which is what I think the purpose was, but seems out of proportion. Of course, a larger rug wouldn’t have worked. I can’t decide if it’s cute and unexpected, or just unnecessary.
The big potted plants and the plethora of light and mirrors make the space feel insanely fresh. I also love the peek of blue you get from the trim around the sliding doors. In fact this vibe is really similar to what I was going for with my own loft when I lived there.
I like the ‘basket’ lights that go the whole length of the space, keeping things simple while tying it all together – super essential to those open floor plans where, visually speaking, it all needs to work well together or it starts to feel cluttered. And let’s pause to collectively die a little bit over all that gorgeous worn leather.
The best part about this home? It’s actually not much of a challenge to do something similar for yourself.
1. large basket pendant light // 2. wishbone dining chair // 3. ikea pot // 4. reclaimed wood dining table // 5. peacock mirror // 6. leather sling chair // 7. woven basket // 8. moroccan rug
While I’m not sure I could maintain such a purely white home for long, I do love many of these elements, but especially that leather chair – I’d love to add a pair to our own living room. What pieces could you see incorporating into your own design?
Here are a few more fresh ideas:
