Interior Eye Candy from Pinterest
November 18, 2013
Ok, Ok… I spend more time on Instagram and Pinterest these days than I do writing blog posts. I’m sorry. In an attempt to satisfy my hunger for interior eye-candy and to share here with you I am combining in today’s post.
Here are just some of the images I pinned, or re-pinned today on Pinterest. I’m searching to a commonality, a theme and what stands out to me is a conscious “undesigned” vibe, as if these rooms just happened (they didn’t, btw). And, I think they all have a masculine vintage-modern vein to them… something old something new?
I want to label these images, most have some mid-century element but the look ranges from mid-century, 70’s loft-style, minimal, and a whole lot more. There is a spare yet eclectic aesthetic that I think I’m responding to. No pattern per-say, earth tones, it’s decorating made (to look) easy. I for one have a hard time stopping, I like to just keep adding but I have to say I aspire to less is more. Let me tell you that all these undecorated spaces were thoughtfully stylized, edited and controlled. Theres a big payoff if you can just say no to prints, and all the other bells and whistles available to us all via the design market place.
Let the furniture say what you want the room to say. Invest in quality sofas, chairs and case pieces… and by that I don’t mean expensive ( although expensive is often built well, and I wouldn’t say no to it). Buy it because it’s right, buy it because you love it.
