Styling 101

Often in a home, we otherwise love, might be a feature that is a little out of our comfort zone. Perhaps something like a lot of blue and white marble as in the photo above. Although there are some cool pieces here, I’m not getting the urge to cuddle up yet. Is the marble just too blue….is a costly renovation in the future?

No! Let’s place this room in the decorate vs renovation category.  How about some home styling.  Maybe even add a bit more blue?   This is a perfect example of how restyling a room, with the pieces you already own and love (or a few new pieces), can completely transform the look and “feel” of a room.  This is also the time for us (a design firm) to promote the services of using a designer. As we’ve said in previous posts, spending a few hours with the right designer does not have to be expensive yet the impact can be amazing. Look at the subtle changes of the furnishings in this example. Now I’d want to be in this room all the time! It’s inviting and oh so interesting. “What do you mean the marble is blue?”

Below are a few more photos of the same home which was featured in Vogue. Now that you are completely comfortable with the blue marble, take a few minutes to admire all the individually simple , thus exquisite, features of this home.   While you are making a note to “find a good designer”, I’ll be trying to locate this home to see if this home is available for a rental!
