A Study in Contrasts...

I've always liked aspects of (almost) every type of design, but lately I have been consistently drawn to a very tailored look, primarily made up blacks, whites, shades of neutrals and a LOT of textures and metals.  I am really loving the juxtaposition of shiny chrome with soft fabrics, metallic wallpaper paired with rough woods, leather against textured pillows, grasscloth and driftwood, etc.  Maybe the fact that it mixes a lot of styles makes it so appealing to me.  Ah,'s eclectic, fresh, unique...that's it!

I am not sure if all of these rooms are liveable as they are, but they all have something intriguing that we could carry over.  Is my design style changing?  I don't know yet...but I love these rooms!

I love the idea of keeping a room on the neutral side but using textures and shadings of the same color to give the room interest and the "layered" effect that is also so sought after. I think some of the most interesting rooms can be achieved with this method, and its a popular trend right now When we were in the Maison and Objet show in Paris a month ago...we saw that a lot and it was quite beautiful. Thankss for stopping by my blog..have a wonderful weekend!
