Why This Room Caught My Eye


It is April 9th and the only spring we have so far here in Munich is the spring we create and style in our happy homes. A bitter truth. But on the other hand, the eternal grey skies and cold temperatures gave me a lot of time to restyle my home and bring in a spring spirit with colours, textures, patterns, botanicals. So this week I am sharing a very spring inspired room with you. Notice the use of those styling elements in this room - it really works well together and makes the place look styled but not completely contrived. 
  • Pattern: The pattern of this cushion works perfectly to create interest and the colours in it mirror the dominating colour palette.
  • Texture: The added sheep skin makes the sofa nook very homey and snuggly. Varying textures are key to a great and appealing interior styling.
  • Colour: I am a colour lover, you know that. And here the colour palette is dominated by the coral hue of the stool/coffee table and the mint hues of the shutter, the chest of drawers and the cushion. It makes spring almost tangible, don't you agree?
What caught your eye instantly in this room?

Happy Tuesday!

  2. Interessanterweise hab ich den Tisch im Vordergrund als Allerletztes wahrgenommen. Als allererstes das schöne Kissen mit dem Muster und den mintgrünen Fensterladen.

    Verrätst Du mir noch was das für den Kupfer(?)kerzenständer auf dem einen Instagram-Bild ist?

    Liebe Grüße!

    1. Ich hab mich auch voll und ganz auf das Sofa fokussiert:-)

      Den Kupferkerzenständer hab ich als Geschenk aus Paris bekommen. Ich weiß aber woher - hier: http://www.fleux.com/2067-bougeoir-5-branches-couleur-cuivre.html

  6. Hi Igor! I've meen MIA from here for a while, but happy to be back - especially to this spring inspired post! What immediately caught my eye here is the window shutter. In one go, it also helps accentuate the elements of texture, pattern and colour in this room. I have to admit though, I find the general colour palette here a bit dull. Brighten it one notch and spring has sprung for me :)

    Xx.

    ps. gosh I must be really deprived of spring since I'm wishing to turn up the colour dial! Me? I can't believe it. Ha!!
