A room for living | Part 2
So I’ve been teasing you all for weeks with hints of working on my living room without a reveal of what it actually looks like. So let me allow for a little peek into the space that I lovingly call home. Everything came together as I had hoped with the teal wall color. My goal was to have elements in the room pop more and to generally cool down and lighten the space. The coffee color that was up before was warm and made the space feel cozy and intimate. So much so, that on a hot day it felt like it added an additional 10 degrees.
You’ve all heard it before, but here it is again: I have a serious thing for clashing patterns and colors. I love using pillows to bring in other kinds of textures without being too overwhelming. Various surfaces throughout the room merely serve as a space to hold books. And yes, I am highly judgmental of those without books. Only those without a story to tell aren’t curious about the stories of others.
What I love about decorating and making a space my own is bringing in elements from all the different places my family has been whether it be Africa, the Middle East, or, of course, Poland. I have become mildly obsessed with all the little details of how everything works together whether it be different fabrics next to one another or wine crates to hold cook books that need to readily accessible. Everything comes together into an eclectic mess that makes me feel at home.
