Sometimes when I need inspiration for a project I'm working on or even for updating my own home, I do what I know SO many of you do too.... I go on Pinterest!! Honestly, I have a hard time remembering what my life was like before Pinterest... and I definitely wouldn't want to go there!!! Google images?? That's SO 2011....
I recently came across the image above of this super contemporary, simple, chic, & eclectic room and just FELL IN LOVE. It's more difficult than it seems to keep clean lines & simple modern shapes feeling as warm & inviting as this room looks. Props to one hell of a designer!!
The best thing about this look, however, is not necessarily the jaw-dropping vaulted ceilings (although they are amazing)... it's actually just in the small little details and the well thought-out pieces. I wanted to share with you some inspiration on how to create a VERY similar look for a room in everyone's home that can use a little work... the flex room!! THINK: guest room meets TV room meets library, and all of a sudden you have an incredible place in which you're proud to put your house guests AND have a little sanctuary to truly enjoy the other 360 days of the year!!
To build this look I decided to keep it easy for you, so I've created a one-stop-shop & pulled most of these gorgeous pieces from one of my favourite design stores, Moe's. Moe's is awesome because they really embrace the idea of FORM & FUNCTION. They have pieces that can truly be used & loved throughout the years, but that also make a stylish statement... equally as important if you ask me!! ;)
