A few weeks ago I did a post on white dressers and the use of white in space design. White is an easy go to, there is no arguing that matter. We have seen all white design and white on white trending in the space sector for quite a while. And there is good reason for this: in addition to going with almost everything, white can also brighten up a small dark space and is much more cost effective to use as a design element. So for those on a budget, basing your home around white is a no brainer. But for those lucky enough to live in a large bright space, breaking out of the all white design mode can be fun, and a creatively challenging way to make your home your own.
I myself live in a space that does not have a lot of light so I went for white and neutral tones and use texture and pattern to add interest. But I would love one day to live in a space where I could experiment with color a bit more. We are seeing a number of trends when it comes to color with millennial pink giving way to green; from sea foam green to jade to dark forest greens. Navy has also been popular for a number of seasons now, and it creates a striking canvas for more colorful pieces and eye catching artwork. Today I am sharing with you the home of Megan Ellaby, a blogger and vlogger that I follow on YouTube. Megan’s personal style is quirky, colorful and eclectic in a playful modern way, and this aesthetic extends to her home as well.
Her home is a wonderful mix of modern, retro and country chic. Who would think all these aesthetics would mix together, but somehow they do. In this post I am sharing with you, her super fun, funky bedroom where she films much of her style videos. The rococo style headboard, the 1970’s style nightstands, the 1920’s light stand, the 1980’s influenced bee table lamps, the patchwork quilt, velvet armchair, mid-century modern dresser and over-sized gold guild mirror all come together in a distinctly remarkable way. Add out of the box prints and graphical artwork and you have a delightful space that celebrates the individuality of it’s inhabitants. Granted this style of design requires more thought, more time and more money. But how fun! What say you? Do you like eclectic styles like this? Or are you more of a minimalist?
