and what i unequivocally know is that i LOVE neutrals with bright moments (sorry- i am just so over the term "pops of color"). this house (a rental...holla!) is the temporary home of HGTV's design on a dime star kristan cunningham. she went in and made it her own. love the painted ceiling, that dark charcoal gray. i would have assumed a dark ceiling would shrink the room, not so!! the true white helps and i love how she separated the openness of the room with several different rugs and a long cane chaise. (i recommend clicking the pictures for a close up)
i think i am drawn to a more masculine aesthetic. she balances the masculine and the feminine beautifully. love the large and in charge painting. i want a big ass ocean themed painting too, maybe this one..
some bright blue moments...
