I often get asked what will and won't work in a space. I have to tell you the answer is simple. What works for you? There are no right or wrong answers. There are definitely things to take into consideration though.
Who is the room for?
What will you be doing in that room?
How much time will you spend in there?
Are there children in the room?
Is it for relaxation or entertainment?
Do you want things to be transitional or permanent?
Is there a view to consider?
And that's just a few questions. So next time you are out and you see something you just LOVE, get it....you will find a way to fit it into your space...I guarantee it!
