This is a room full of life and wit.
It would have been simpler to just make the curtains white and be done with it. The white on brown theme would have worked just fine, but Kelley Proxmire of Kelley Interior Design has taken it one step further.
I love the depth of character and quality the dark coloured walls give you. Great design is all about being brave and this is certainly a brave room.
The carefully linked geometric shapes throughout the room bounce off each other. The pattern on the chair grabs the design on the wall sconce and then jumps straight to the plaster mouldings on the ceiling.
The desk is classic in design, harmonizing with the wall colour instantly giving it a more modern feel. The lamp gives the extra height that is needed in the room to balance all the elements.
The smartest part of this room is the adding of the custom coloured, circle linked trim on the curtains and the roman blinds. The pelmets are the last lovely touch.
Be brave like the designer of this room and add strong, bold shapes and patterns to your life.
