It’s a Monday, time to begin another week. Back to work, people! (I always wanted to say that. haha.) I thought it would be best to start the week with a more austere (but not too much) approach thus a more somber post today (in terms of pictures).
I plan to reserve my usual cheery persona (in terms of design preferences) towards the later days of the week (haha) – at least for this week hopefully. I’m not saying that the “somberness” be viewed as something dreary for the week starter but rather a more “back to business” feel (Ok, quite a long explanation as it is) – and oh, I decided to be more detailed in this post and provide my own descriptions about certain pieces and I hope they can be helpful.
This beautiful wooden side table is a good piece – stained, simple table legs (I would say similar to Country Sheraton types), one drawer, crystal knob.
On to business (nothing too serious, don’t worry), these beautiful interiors are by Erika Powell. Her style is defined as both modern and classic – it is stated that she has impeccable attention to details (I can relate to this because I am the same way, the attention to details aspect).
Here are some of her beautiful interiors (I chose those mostly depicting a working environment to help jump start everyone’s week. Don’t worry, I added a touch of “sunshine”. That has always been my preference with the interiors that I do).
This refreshing home office features customized built-in book shelves. There is a good amount of natural light during the day because of the windows. Furniture and certain pieces utilize a silver metallic finish. A pretty neutral space but with a pop of color provided by the apple green Eames Aluminum Group Management Chairs by Herman Miller (I have always loved this chair).
A beautiful contrast between the off white dining chair slip covers and the wooden furniture pieces. The furniture’s features (ex. wood grain, etc.) are well emphasized by said slipcovers which I believe are specifically tailored for this set out of catcha cloth with side buttons that add details. The colors in the wall installations round it off quite nicely.
Rich coffee colored walls, white base moulding and dark stained furniture pieces. Pattern is incorporated in the upholstery for the ottoman and a vivid red acts as an accent color.
A play on neutrals (off white, creams and browns) and a light shade of blue as accent – quite an appropriate color scheme for a bedroom (unobtrusive and not loud at all).
An elegant set-up of warm browns, mocha and creams, white base moulding, a graceful freestanding lamp and an interesting accent table.
Have a good week ahead, everyone!
