Our Judging Eye and Change

Our life experiences are constantly adjusting/refocusing the lens we use to see the world.  It's what allows us to change, if we are simply open to it.  Interior design is no exception, my taste and style have changed so much since creating this blog.  As I continue to explore different styles, what I perceive as beautiful also continues to change.  It seems to grow.

Love the clever use of the desk on the back of this section in this image.


The lines also seem to blur between styles and what works together as time ticks on.  What was once decidedly modern seems to become more eclectic and works with more traditional pieces.  I like to think about it like food.  The more foods you taste and try, the more open you are to combinations of foods/spices that once seemed totally strange together.

Love this interesting layout of the seating areas.  Also, notice the deer head and the floral chinz together.  Again, an interesting mix.

Talk about a mix of styles from the French style mirror and sconces, the rustic stone fireplace, traditional winged back chairs, your grandmothers afghans, mission style arm chairs, and island inspired painted ceiling.  I think what makes this major combination of styles work it the room is done in a subtle way.

Notice how the artwork has been hung in the alcoves of the built in area creating an incredibly chic art installation that is decidedly modern.  This is paired with a very traditional chandy and dining table.

I love this vignette . . . it feels fresh, fun and a bit retro to me.

But I also love this . . . which is classic, understated, and elegant.

This morphing of our sense of style is a gift.  It allows us to continue to be creative by the blends of styles which results in something totally new and fresh.  I'm grateful for this today! Hope everyone stays warm.  M.
