I thought it would be fun to start a new series here where I share bits and pieces of different rooms and spaces throughout my home. (It would probably be more accurate to call it a 'mini series' because in reality, my house is pretty small and there aren't that many rooms to share - but you get the point.) When I visit someone's home for the first time, it is usually the details of the space that stick in my memory - pictures, patterns, knickknacks, textures, corners, artwork, colors. It's so interesting to me to see how people choose to incorporate objects and details into the overall aesthetic of a room. So that's what I plan to share with you guys.
My living room is probably my favorite room in the house. Aside from my office/studio, it's the space where I spend the most time. Robbie and I watch a lot of movies in here, listen to a lot of records in here, eat a lot of meals in here, and spend a lot of late nights sitting on the couch together reading. When we have friends over, the living room is our main hang. We also recently redecorated it with a focus on a neutral color scheme (black, white, grey and tan), mixed with wood and lots of black and white stripes. I love minimalism but I also like to fill rooms with collections and trinkets, and I was able to incorporate both into this space. During this time of year, when it's cold and dreary, I'm especially grateful for this room because there are two big windows and a fireplace. It's simultaneously the most open room and the coziest room in our place.
Are you the type of person that most often focuses your attention on details in a space? What is your favorite room in your home?
