Castle Heights - The Den

The den is a small and unassuming space that sits in between the living room to the back yard. It also functions as a part time guest room with its sleeper sofa, the one furniture item I had to work around. It was a neutral and clean lined enough piece that I had no problem with that. When its not used by guests, my clients like to sit here and read while absorbing the Western light. 

The walls were painted Wickham Gray and I started scouting for golden, caramel, and honey hued pieces to tie the wall color to the existing sofa. The Loloi rug was the perfect piece with its gray and brown accents and subtly Moroccan pattern. We paired it with another pouf in caramel brown leather.

Small modern decor accents such as the macrame wall hanging by Himo Art, the brass swing arm lamp from One Forty Three, and marbelized pillows from Tonic Living were used to weave in golden highlights.

Across from the sofa we needed small storage solutions. Vintage dressers are an affordable way to infuse a small space with lots of retro style and real wood notes. A floating circular wire shelf above provided a spot for some books, and vintage props. 

The final details that really give this room its finished and thoughtful patina is the vintage lamp that boasts both the room's color scheme of grays, browns, and honeys as well as the organic marbelized pattern of the pillows and the geode book ends. Without this one lamp, I think the room wouldn't feel as composed. Seriously, its all about the details.

I love to think that these little design love notes took the room from meh to absolutely lovely and a space you want to spend time in.
