Lifestyle plays such a part in interior design and to ignore a client's lifestyle & preferences can be catastrophic. In the above collage, I've created a space that brings versatility and a casual feel with sophisticated elements. Light blue color palettes are so transitional from style to style and they pair well with many other colors. I love the play of the cool grays & blues with the warmth of the natural wood elements. When designing your space try to stay away from everything matching perfectly and instead focus on what different elements in your home have in common. For example, the dark wood of a Queen Anne table may sync up perfectly with a chunky natural wood shelf of the same dark hue. A modern geometric graphic on a pillow may also pair nicely with the classical Greek key motifs in many traditional furniture pieces. Design is all about bringing elements together to create a cohesive look and fit the needs of the end user.
