I find it so hard to decide whether or not I prefer an all neutral home, or a colorful one. I see pictures of all white spaces & drool. Then I see just as impressive pics of mixed patterns/colors & am equally in love. I have tried the neutral home but always fail & eventually bring in color. Not a ton of color, but some. Trends report neutrals are coming back on strong going into 2011.
A quick stop to Elte today & my heart stopped at the entrance (what's new?) when I saw this traditional, knit wool-like ottoman. I am not generally drawn to traditional spaces, but this particular space felt so warm & cozy and I fell in love. The picture doesn't do it justice; its texture is perfect. The casual sofa & dramatic chandelier score big points.
