Why This Room Caught My Eye

Sometimes the weather does shape our perception and forms our taste. Every season inherits this power. And autumn does has this immanent power too. My commuting between Munich and Paris has recently been padded in fog, leaden skies, low hanging clouds. And that outer staging frames my inner mood - even when it comes to interior design and styling. Saturated hues, deep greens evoking dew laden forests, grey hues bringing the calmness of crisp foggy days inside, balmy ambers, rusty hues and purples reflecting the fallen leaves - these autumnal feelings seem to be captured in today's room that caught my eye. But it's not only the colour scheme that made me linger on it:
  • Vintage Portrait: Vintage paintings are a sort of 'coup de coeur' of interior stylists recently. Whether it's vintage landscape paintings or vintage portraits - those decorative pieces add a good deal of character to a room.
  • Grey Sofa: This grey sofa looks like the perfect counterpart to the grey weather outside - just much comfier and nicer. Ready to snuggle and watch the grey weather outside through the window seated on such a sofa - perfect autumn idleness!
  • Layered Home Textiles: Cold weather calls for layers and layers of home textiles. Now it's time to pile up your cushions and throws. Make it as comfortable and warm as possible for the maximum cocooning treatment at home!
How about you, does this room catch your eye too?
