Despite storing very little toys in this room, I wanted it to evoke peace and play. To achieve the peace, we kept a mostly neutral color palette with a pop of warmth from the wood and the leather couch. I also tried to keep the decor as minimal as possible (which helps when we have a bunch of tiny humans over). People keep asking what we'll hang above the fireplace, but I'm not sure that we'll hang anything. (Or maybe we just haven't found the perfect thing yet.) If this room were a profession, it would be a therapist. This is the space we bring our messy lives to. I wanted the room to be able to handle it. Of course, this is where we have fun too. I wanted to implement visual fun as a reminder. So we keep Hal's rocking horse out all the time. Kev named him Polo. Hal calls him Whole-Low and drags him all around the house.
Add a Rug Tile and wooden floors have been trendy in contemporary and modern design, but you can't beat an area rug to warm up a chilly floor. Not only are they a great way to add visual interest to the room, but rugs on bare floors also help keep in heat, meaning they are warming your space. If you want to add texture, go for a plusher rug. For colour and dimension, go with a patterned carpet. You can even layer rugs on top of each (like the picture below) other for extra coziness on your feet. Rugs can also help with defining your space and be the missing link to pulling together your furniture groupings. Pillows Everywher, Pillows are another easy way to change up your decor and instantly make space seem cozy. Pile them on top of your sofa, bed, or even place a few on the floor. Pick pillows with different textures and materials to make it fun. And by adding one or two throw blankets and some pillows in your living room, you're inviting everyone to curl up and get comfy. The abundance of pillows in this room just makes you want to curl up, read a book and relax.
Think in Color Families, At first glance the home's entryway looks like a riot of color, but after talking to Mele you realize he was actually working with a tight palette. “I wanted a lot of white, first of all, and then a mix of blue and orange,” he reveals. The secret? Working with various hues within each of these two complementary color families. His blues included “cobalt, turquoise, delft, navy. Within the orange family, corals, tangerines, grapefruits. Really rich hues, not muted.” Blue & White Always Works, For Mele, using a combo of blue and white is like “wearing a white shirt with blue jeans, or a navy-blue blazer and a white shirt. It never goes out of style.” The classic color combination in interiors can be similarly dressed up or down. In the living room, Mele used a decidedly denimlike shade of blue grasscloth on the walls to add color and texture, which helps the silhouettes of the white accessories and the wingback chairs really pop. The overall effect is polished yet casual. “I think blue and white is the equivalent of black and white; it's just not as fierce,” says the designer. “It's more welcoming to most people.
