I am kind of over that coffee table….but then in another way I love it. It is so easy to move out of the way [with those big wheels] . My sofa is a sleeper and when my brother comes into town with his 3 kids…well….we have to use it.
And don’t think I don’t know that maybe wheels have peaked [I read design magazines also] but I have to say they are functional sometimes. So back to the design board, World market and what I came up with.
I actually started with the rug. That is usually where I do start first because a rug is a great inspiration point. It kind of defines the style of the room. From there I picked the wall color [BM] Metropolitan. It was on their website as one of their 5 favorite grays. I could not look at the color as I lent out my paint decks for the weekend. Looks good though!
Think about the simple black dress…..you don’t put the pearls on before the dress.
My biggest punch of color came in the window treatments. Hopefully my imaginary room does not have a jillion windows because I might have to rethink that plan. Also the rug is only a 6 by 9 but it could be layered over a larger sisal.
Anyway…this is just for grins and how I would style the room. Remember…design is like art…very subjective.
I will let you know if I found anything while I was thrifting this weekend later……
