As we are in the midst of the Ho Ho Ho, Happy Holiday Season, I just love the “Snowflake” subtleties that inspired the designers, Megan, SeDell and Leeann, this month on the Vignette.
The carved whitewashed wooden panels set the winters theme with their geometric nod to the snowflake. The whole color scheme is from a winter’s day when the first dusting of fresh fallen snow just coats the trees and ground. The taupe, charcoal, creams and whites are very soothing and make for a very relaxing space. Keep these colors in mind for your living spaces, you’ll never grow tired of them.
I can envision the start of a great family room from the suggestions in this vignette. The plaid rug comes in larger sizes, and is very easy care since it is a low level wool weave. In fact,it is very affordable as well, in an 8X10 it is only $1,060. A sectional in a solid taupe texture would be nice with 2 of the accent chairs that could be pulled up into a larger grouping at a moments notice. The chairs are very easy to move about. Maybe add a large upholstered chair facing the TV in a charcoal colored leather. Then just fill in with the Mercury Glass Lamps at $240 each. The sparkle that they add to a room is a very special accent. For your Cocktail Table, Console and end tables take it from the designers and use a mix of Driftwood, lighter wood tones and metal for a more interesting effect. The whole vignette is a winning combination!
