More Rustic Chic

Rustic Chic home decorating continues to grow in popularity rapidly. Perhaps it’s the ease it allows the inhabitant of the home to have in terms of creativity and having a warm, welcoming flat to return home to after a tiring a day. The cozy fabrics with eclectic mix of decor coupled with warm color palettes and textures enhance the spaces, inviting one to relax and feel enveloped in an snug spot of their world. Crystal chandeliers, golds and silvers are welcome in these spots encouraging a sense of glamor and surprise with supporting styles ranging from traditional to contemporary. It’s the evolution of shabby chic, cottage and chic and eclectic decorating rolled into one beautiful package…tied with twine. I love the lived in feel brought to the table by these spaces……

Bohemian Living Room

This Boho styled living room is filled with textures, colors and patterns all delightfully mixed together for an enchanting area. I love how the floor to ceiling windows allow the light to flood in. The tufted ottoman is superb, the sheen on the fabric and the gold accents let the light dance throughout the room.

Orange Room Warmup

This room proves it’s all about the details, look how the cushion is criss-cross tied to the bench….

The straight lines of these shelves, draw the eye out, making the room appear much wider. Love the soft sherbert orange on the walls…and with the white accessories it looks fabulous.

Just adore that luna console, it’s modern and Baroque traditional all at once and gets my mind rolling on a DIY. While this color has a lot more pink to it, it’s warm enough to make the orange roundup….it actually strikes me as Honeysuckle our beloved 2011 color of the year.

Italian dressing room. Just beautiful, every aspect of it.

This headboard is unique, functional and sexy.  Really like the Morrocan vibe this room radiates.

Rustic Branch Foyer Table

This sweet branch table caught my eye at Martha Stewart’s Site. Isn’t it fabulous the way it’s rustic feel is completely glamourized with a vase of gorgeous hydrangeas? I adore the way it was fitted over the radiator, making a useful little spot for some added beauty.
