The evolution of a room.

I was first introduced to designer Tia Zoldan a few years back, via a feature by Cottage Living...

...Who can forget that turquoise tufted ottoman, the striking artwork, the girl in the orange pants...?

Well, it seems she has re-decorated her place, and we are all lucky to be invited to view the redo... Notice how certain colors have been brought out with placement of accessories in these two images (above and below), and see it change the mood of the room further down this page. Take her clue, pull accent colors from artwork and rugs...

I love this image... the black upholstery, the color of the glazed pottery, the pop of color in the silk pillow, how the books have been stacked deep on the table...

This image shows more of the earthy tones, the oranges and golden colors come through. The room has a different vibe just by changing out the fuchsia pillow and adding gold embroidery pillows + metallic accessories, such as the votive on the white side table, the brass sculpture on the books etc, as well as highlighting the wood demi lune table.

I, for one, love to see the evolution of a space through a designer eye, especially when it comes to such a personal space, as her own home!! Notice how the main furniture pieces are the same, they have just been reupholstered... And then the focal point, the artwork, has been changed up, and totally softened the space! A mix of textures, fabrics, pattern and colors make this space uniquely personal...
Thank you, High Gloss, for the sneak peak!
