Next to blue, green is one of those colors so many of us love, and for good reason! On that note, this layered Southampton living room designed by Markham Roberts has been on my mind this week. It feels fresh and vibrant, without it being overwhelming. The main color story is dictated by a pleasant green repeated on the upholsteries and greenery, grounded with natural wood tones and honey-hued sisal.
The room is large and cleverly divided into separate conversation areas. My favorite part is how Roberts designed back-to-back sofas that must be fabulous for entertaining. The delicate lines of the tufted chaises and sofas are balanced with a more rustic canvas of wide shiplap walls. I also love how Roberts decorates his mantels – he keeps the displays minimal but attention-grabbing.
This space, along with the rest of the project, was published in House Beautiful a few years ago (ten, but who’s counting?), as well as in Roberts’ first book – Decorating The Way I See It. A great read for a number of reasons, one of them being that he shares, along with beautiful images of his work, the corresponding floor plans accompanied by explanations for why they work. The truth is they do work, like a charm!
I hope your week is going well so far! Rainy days like the ones we’ve been having this week are great for my productivity so this girl can’t complain. See you tomorrow!
