elements of style

feb 24 thom

You know the old saying “less is more” well I must admit that when selecting furniture it really does work. When working with a smaller room space, use furniture with simple lines, not a lot of bulk, and don’t over crowd. This room scene from Thomasville Furniture shows how the right mix of fabrics, textures and shapes creates loads of visual interest, while keeping your room open and airy. The fabric sectional, done in a neutral color has fabulous details, nice simple rolled arm with added pizzaz in the nail trim detailing. A round leather tufted ottoman provides another texture in the room, allows you to sit back and put your feet up, and in a crowd is great for extra seating. Completing the look, the occasional tables are the perfect mix of wood and metal with an open base and square lines to compliment the round and curved lines of the sectional and ottoman. Elements of style, perfect for a smaller space. Thomasville Furniture is a fabulous , quality driven manufacturer with an amazing selection of fabrics to choose from. If you need assistance with a room planner to see which components will fit in your space, contact me and we’ll work together on creating your dream room, deborah@casacastelli.com, and remember shop local and support your local retailer.

Generously scaled at 51″ x 31″ it is a great choice for our navy and orange color scheme.lolo-ANASAF-07SALB_lgUnder foot I have selected a rug from the Anastasia Collection from Loloi Rugs. Not over powering and available in a wide variety of sizes , right up to 13′ x 18″ which is not that easy to find.lolo-P029P0118NVWHPIL3_lgTo add a bit of navy to the room, I have chosen a simple geometric print in navy and white. A touch of navy in the art work or in a lamp is also an easy way to bring in an accent color. pale-7060-85aJust had to have these chairs from Palecek , perfect for the colors we are working with and the bamboo frame continues the natural feel from the teak coffee table.
