I love it when there are moments that make me completely rethink my design aesthetic. I came across this group of photos today on formelle.tumblr.com , and my eyes have been opened to a whole new world of possibilities.
What I love:
- the rustic simplicity with a hint of modern design
- the combination of natural woods, stainless steel and heavily worn leather
- organized clutter amid a neutral color palette
- absolute versatility- this design aesthetic can be warmed up and cooled down depending on the weather and your mood. I LOVE that!
I love my house in the Fall and Winter because all of the main living areas are filled with warm and inviting colors. But, when Spring rolls around, I feel hot and almost suffocated. I want to rip away the drapes and remove all clutter throughout the house...and I seriously consider repainting the entire downstairs. I never voice these desires...because...Jason would seriously doubt my sanity : )
I don't know...I may have to begin a slow transition...one that Jason doesn't even realize is happening. The man did overlook a 9 foot ficus in our family room for 3 months : )
