This week’s room is really just a corner of a room… because it seems to be the only image I can find, but thanks to some savvy readers, we have tracked down the source! Designer Heidi Prebell is the genius behind this fabulous little space and I have to say, I’m quite smitten…
I love a space that challenges me beyond my comfort level. At first glance it was the wallpaper and brightly colored trim that really drew me into this room – that and the wonderfully low aqua sofa. Can we just talk about how insane the paper is? By choosing to paint the window and trim in the aqua, a space that could have veered towards traditional is suddenly quite bold. The fact that the wallpaper doesn’t go all the way to the floor keeps things from feeling to busy, and I like that touch. Keeping the sofa low and with clean modern lines also helps in that regard.
Then comes the accent pieces – all in white and gold. The mirrored screen and decanters, the gilt side table and artwork. Even the lamp fits right in! And none of them battling with the rest of the room for attention. The only piece I’m really taking issue with is the rug. I like the tones, but the contemporary style just isn’t working for me.
So, what do you think? Is it pushing your design envelope, or could you see yourself right at home with this playful yet polished scene?
