Did you all enjoy the holiday weekend? I definitely benefited from the extra day we had off here in the US and got some stuff done around my apartment. But I have to be honest, I'm making myself go crazy trying to decorate the new place. As soon as I decide on the direction I want to take it, I see something else I love and have to rethink everything. I'm trying my best to remember these wise words about committing to a concept, but find it challenging at moments. Somehow I think it's harder to design for yourself than for others :) Do you agree?
One thing I am considering is swapping out this sisal rug I currently have in favor of a traditional red rug. I love the way they look paired with white!
And since my couch and armchairs are white, I think I could pull this off fairly easily. Plus, with fall ahead of us, it's the perfect time to introduce some warm tones into my decor palette.
What I'm most drawn to about this look, is the beautiful mixing of two eras. White furniture tends to evoke a modern, minimalist style, while an elaborately designed rug brings feelings of luxury, traditional and layers. The two achieve opposite aims yet marry so well together.
For now, it's just one of the many ideas and inspirations floating around in my head these days...I'll let you know if I actually do it :)
