Design Vignette: Inspired by Art...
I was inspired to design a room around this piece of poster art, English Rose. Sometimes all it takes is a fabric, photo, piece of art or accessory to start the wheels turning in my head! There are so many things that can inspire a beautiful space. If you don't know where to begin and feel overwhelmed when you're trying to design a room, look around you - there's plenty of inspiration!
I created a feminine, whimsical room with a hint of sass. By selecting pieces with soft, curved lines, I kept with the femininity of the art however, the bold contrast between colors adds some drama and keeps the overall feel fresh and fun. From the top: Lisse Sofa by Baker Furniture (a pretty penny for this one!); Liberace Mirrored Table by Arteriors Home; Ethan White Pillow by Blissliving Home; Sofitel Glass Lamp by Arteriors Home; Set of 3 Dutchess White Poodles by Arteriors Home; Monroe Glass Black Vase; Nickel Plate Multi Bulls Eye Mirror by Global Views.
What inspires you? What have you used in the past to inspire new and creative designs?
