Change your accents, change your look!

Last week I showed you some of my favorite  items from Viva Terra, today I thought it would be fun to show one of those items with some other room basics and two different looks created by using different accents.  I do little things in my own home to change things up by season or when I simply need something to feel new, but I love the idea of having different artwork, window treatments and accessories for one room so that the change is more significant.

Since budget is always at the forefront when I do a room design, changing accents could be as simple as "shopping" the other rooms in your home.  Having a well planned color scheme throughout your home will help in enabling you to do this. A shift of color, texture and style can keep a room fresh and interesting.

For this design, the foundation is the woven leather rug and a sleek leather sofa with chrome legs.  The subtle gray wall color and more rustic feeling tables help tie in the rug.  Lamps are something that are also easily changed, but for this plan, I chose to keep them the same.  The two different looks I was after are achieved by following the textural and overall color thread on the warm side and picking up on the grays, metals and more modern lines of the sofa on the cool side. Enjoy!
