I am often asked where I start when designing a space. For me, I start from the ground up. For this living room project, I first selected this vintage blue and white area rug and then started to pull colors and textures for the furniture items. I love a balance of colors and textures in a space. For this room, we are using mohair, leather, linen, velvet and leather. One of my favorite perhaps unexpected accents is the touch of lavender. I can’t wait to see this space come together!
