Why This Works

Happy Thursday and welcome to the series Why This Works... where I show a designed space and talk about what I love! This living room space is packed with color, personality and fun.



I was instantly taken by the dramatic modern art above the fireplace. I love seeing graphic art mixed in with traditional furnishings, for an eclectic look. The next thing that got me was the fun use of color in the space. The blues, hot pinks, oranges and reds all work so well when paired with white walls. The light backdrop allows the colorful accessories to take center stage. Then the rustic quality of the barn doors to the left of the fireplace gives a warm, farmhouse appeal to a modern, edgy space. The gold accents of the coffee table make the traditional curves and shape appear more contemporary. I love the numbered art by the eating area- it adds another pop of color that ties into the fabrics in the living room. The fresh flowers and plants in the living room give a warm, homelike quality to the space. And the peek into the foyer in the distance reveals a beautiful lantern stlye light fixture and a gorgeous glossy black front door. Overall, this fun space works!

I love this space because it looks like it has been created over time and not put together in one day therefore the pieces must be more meaningful.

As soon as I saw the room , first thing I noticed was the beautiful painting above the mantel. I also love the gold and pink accents.

I agree with you completely. The contrast of the black and white artwork and the dark blue couches against all that white makes such a statement. I love this room!
