The scale is also really important. A room like the one above calls for a large sectional or two sofas. No dinky furniture here. And because the space is so large, they even had room for that giant square pouf - which I love. Since the furniture is the right size, the room feels full but not crowded at all. If I tried to put something like this in our apartment, man would it feel stuffed.
The last thing I noted in the room was that the designers made sure to add warmth to the room using textured baskets, woven materials, and natural elements like the flowers. These are the things that make a room feel like a comfortable and lived in rather than sterile and cold.
Can you tell I love this space? Enough about me though, what are the things that you love about it?
This creative bit is the perfect segue into the next post in my "Defining My Style" series - which is going to be all about living rooms that I love. It'll be coming sometime in the next couple of weeks!
