Live Here, Decorate With This: Modern Comforts

Have you ever had a room just jump out and grab you? You know the ones I’m talking about. Where you want to plop right down in the middle of the floor and never leave?

I immediately got that feeling when I spied the space below. The mix of warm tones against a bright white base {my favorite, as we know!}, makes the room feel relaxed, comfortable and totally inviting.

I also immediately thought it’d be the perfect room to kick off the first Live Here, Decorate With This post of 2013!


I teamed up with my new favorite online decor resource and newest Apartment 34 sponsor, Lulu & Georgia {you may have spied their Chandelier Rug here!} to recreate the feeling of this casually modern space.

The secret is a game of mix and match. Nothing is one note. The room plays with height, texture and tone; new + found.

For example, structured lines in the form of a mid-century inspired chair are layered on top of the curves of a hide rug. Rich wood pieces are also commingled with a brass, granite-topped side table. I particularly love the use of the bench as a display for favorite objects, art, and a touch of greenery that can all be whisked away when you want to entertain and need more seating.

A sprinkling of design books, with great covers of course, is the easiest way to add a final touch of personality and color to a room. And voila, you have a space anyone would like to call home.

What do you think? Do you love this room as much as I do??
