We took one sofa in our retail store and will ask a different designer each week to style the surrounding space using pillows, lamps and accessories. The end result will show how accessories can change the overall feeling of a room.
Deb Van Plew was the first designer to tackle the project and she did an amazing job! We asked her a few questions about her selections.
JB: I noticed one of the first things you grabbed when you began styling this space was the large basket that you placed on the cocktail table. Can you tell us about that choice?
Deb: The basket is one of my favorite items and influenced my decisions throughout the space. I used the basket as both my inspiration and color palette.
JB: What emotions or feelings did you want the space to convey?
Deb: I wanted it to feel easy and relaxed … the type of place where you can put your feet up or put a drink on the table and not feel like anything is too precious or fussy.
(We LOVED the rolled blankets used as bolsters!)
JB: Tell us about your lighting choices.
Deb: I wanted levels of lighting that produced a soft room light. I wanted it to be ‘functional light’ that would be good for reading, etc.
JB: When you designed this vignette, what were your inspirations?
Deb: With this space I really felt inspired by nature. I wanted a rustic organic look.
We loved the cool global chic space Deb created. Stay tuned for more vignettes coming soon!
