Creativity is something we have to nurture, so I give myself small tasks and think of them as homework in order to keep my mind thinking creatively. One of the sites I love to visit to get my creative juices flowing is DesignSeeds, Jessica’s work on the site is impeccable, not only does it show you how you can create something from almost nothing but I love to go to the site choose a picture and let myself by inspired by colors. Today’s post is a living room design board created after being inspired one of the color palettes.
This is the original DesignSeed palette called A Door Tones, the image that inspired it is via @suertj in instagram. I absolutely love the color palette because it feels so neutral and clean with all its greys and then that touch of warmth added by the tan/camel swatch taken from the rust tones balances it out for me.
Here is a list of the elements that make up this room:
- Hemisphere Chandelier from ZGALLERIE
- the antique brass finish and how the bulbs used were trimmed down so that they appear extensions of the arms are what appeals to me the most in this lamp.
- Minimalist Surroundings series from ZGALLERIE
- the warm neutral colors manage to add interest without distracting from important pieces in the room that I wanted to stand out.
- Brooklyn leather sofa in Sienna from West Elm
- the simple clean shape of the sofa paired with the camel leather makes it a perfect addition to any room. I already featured it in my Camel Leather Sofa post and I couldn’t leave it out of this post. Check out the previous post for more inspiration images and sources of leather sofas in camel leather.
- 1880S Belgian Upholstered Club chair from Restoration Hardware
- I chose this chair because the traditional shape and elements (like the legs and the arms) complement perfectly the clean lines of the sofa and the daybed, remember it’s all about balance.
- Cleo coffee table from CB2
- the simple clean form of the table is the it was incorporated in this room, it works well with the other elements without fighting for attention. The glossy white enameled top will make everything placed on top stand out.
- The paint color for the walls is SW 7071 gray screen from Sherwin Williams
- Pod hanging chair from CB2
- this chair add so much to the room, it will be the conversation starter because of its unusual use inside. The faux wicker handwoven finish of the chair will balance the more traditional contemporary elements.
- Engineered wide plank flooring from HomeDepot
- tons of finishes available in this wide plank format that I really like.
- Marbled rug from West Elm
- Lubi silver grey sleeper daybed from CB2
- I love the super clean lines of this daybed, it will work in almost any room.
- Throw pillow from West Elm
- The overlook throw blanket from CB2 adds texture and warmth to the space
- Terrarium to bring nature into the space
- inspired by this DIY post in the WorldMarket site blog. I really want to do this.
