It is no secret that I love good styling, and when I can get my hands on images of a really cool space, filled with an interesting mix of new and old & lots of texture, I am a happy camper :)
These images are all from the new Domaine website, more specifically the home of Glee star Lea Michelle. The house was decorated by interior designer Estee Stanley (For a list of vendors check out the story here.)
Console tables are a great way to help separate a large space, and a perfect opportunity for a beautiful backdrop to a floating sofa, as above, where the table not only holds two cool lamps, but notice the stools tucked under, for extra seating...
A super easy way to create a sense of "lived-in" is adding a few timeworn pieces to the interior. Be it pillows fashioned from old fabrics, an antiqued table made to look like the real thing, even hand-me-downs and flea market finds can help make a space feel comfortable and not all "new"...
Don't be afraid of a pop of color, especially if the rest of the home is fairly neutral. What do you think of the ornate satee, with the rough side chairs and Restoration Hardwear wood and iron table?? I'm not a fan of the satee, but the colors and the rest of the tablescape works for me... :)
It may just be me, but while I like the overall mood of this living room, I find that there are one too many chairs in this little space, what do you think?
I urge you to check out Domaine, lots to read and be inspired by. Great interiors (more of Lea's house as well, there had to be a limit... :) ), recipes and shopping, a blog and How-to section with good insight and ideas.
Domaine is the Home version of Who What Wear, from Katherine Power & Hillary Kerr. They didn't miss a beat, and I am already a fan!!
Enjoy your weekend!!
