A Sense of History and Modern with Saturated Blue Walls

This was one of those pictures that stopped me in my tracks. Designed by Jessica Buckley Interiors, the intensity and depth of the blue grasscloth wallpaper is captivating. It’s called Blueberry by Phillip Jefferies. I’m making note of this for my next house. Next to the couch, that’s the best wow factor of the room. But then, I’m biased because I’m drawn to everything blue. I do have to say though that I love how the soft vintage pinks of the chairs adds a calm elegance to the room and adds a sense of history right next to the fireplace. The rug is another key factor to this room. While it’s still strong in colors, it’s not saturated like the walls and couch yet it still manages to add color and fun to the room and tie it all in. The glass coffee table keeps it light and its gold frame adds glamor (You can never go wrong with glamor. After all, we all want a little bit of it in our life. This is where we can get it.)


A Seductive, Industrialist Loft

When you hear that someone lives in a loft, it conjures all kinds of images in your head. Usually it’s industrial, but the mood can swing in so many directions from light and airy to dark and moody. A loft often conjures a romantic atmosphere. I think a lot of people will “ooh” and “aah” over the idea of it, which I did when I stumbled upon this image while reading the Desire to Inspire (one of my favorites) blog.
