Room Design: Earthy Modern

Inspired Room Design:  This is how I envision my imaginary Rocky Mountain Cabin.   I fight the commonplace at every turn.  Anything too simplistic or too obvious leaves little for the mind and soul to digest and interpret.  It’s like a movie with a conspicuos and tidy ending that you forget as soon as it’s over  versus the film that makes you think and talk about the possibilities over dinner.

In this dream scenario, my color palette is earthy with shades of adobe and pops of rich tourquoise.  I enjoy the dynamics of modern upholstery pieces reminiscent of the mid-century masters paired with an organic cocktail table of  beautiful burl wood and glossy gold leaf.  And this Mercury glass chandelier gives off a warm golden glow.

I love the contrast of the antique moroccan rug and pebble stone shape of the mirror.
