Every once in a while you see a house in a publication and you think, yes, this is where I want to live. That is how I felt when I saw Kristan Cunningham and Scott Jarrell's LA loft. Jarrell put it best when he said...
"In the fall and winter, you let your home be a hug. That's what we want our interiors to be all year long."
Mission accomplished. With a neutral palette, lots of texture and an eclectic mix of furniture the home is incredibly chic without losing it's coziness factor.
The stag table and hanging rattan chair are my favorite parts of the living room, but I also love, love, love the black couch. There is no way you would ever regret owning a big black leather chesterfield. It's so classic it hurts.
The home has a certain masculine sensibility that I find myself gravitating towards these days. The designers stuck to a "highly controlled palette of black, brown, brass, cream, leather, and wood" which helps keep the home looking cohesive. Any time you have a strict color scheme it makes shopping easier (especially at thrift stores, where they got many of their pieces), because you won't make the mistake of buying something that doesn't fit with the rest of your decor.
I am head over heels for this olive green sectional. It may have just swayed me from the navy velvet that I had been eying.
Here are a few items that can help you achieve the look in your own home. And don't forget to check out the rest of the article (and pictures) here, as well as Cunningham and Jarrell's amazing store Hammer and Spear here.
I am especially in love with this double gourd lamp from Target. So much so that I ordered it! It reminds me of these beautiful, but much more expensive Christopher Spitzmiller lamps. The bar cart is a total steal too at only $129.99. I always love Target but their Threshold and Nate Berkus collections are particularly amazing right now.
So what do you think? Do you like the neutral palette? Is it too masculine? Let's talk.
