What makes a room outstanding? What difference can be achieved with a good interior styling? I think we all agree that interior styling has a great impact on the perception of a room. The art is to find the right balance, to make a room look lived-in and not over-styled. The best solution: To actually live in the space. Just like in today's example of a room that caught my eye. This is in fact the Barcelona home of two creatives, Mari-Luz and Andrew, the masterminds behind the new magazine and project 'Openhouse'.
Not only do I love their project and magazine, I also absolutely love their home. It is first and foremost a real urban jungle - filled with fantastic plants that add a very special and living touch to this light flooded home. Plus their love for details, ceramics and a cosy, open and welcoming atmosphere has really caught my eye. Here why this single shot of one of their rooms has caught my eye in particular:
- Styled Shelves: This incredibly beautiful and peculiar shelving unit has been styled up without intention - random collections, plants, books, magazines, ceramics. The effect is eye-catching. Beautiful and it makes me want to start a shelf styling project at home over again!
- Tiled Floor: A great advantage of many Barcelona home are tiled floors. They add so much character and atmosphere to a room and are perfect for homes in warmer climates. I love the pattern and colour combination: grey, yellow, blue - hello, is it me or what?!
- Iconic Chair: This iconic hand chair really serves as an eye-catcher, no matter where you'd place it. Its vintage condition, its peculiar shape, the raw, worn leather - your eye can't escape it!
How do you like this room corner? Does it catch your eye too and if so, why? Let me know!
