“There’s a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” – Leonard Cohen
I came across an old room designed by one of my favorites, Steven Gambrel, and it made me think…it’s casual, it’s quirky and it breaks all the rules I’ve learned in design school! It also works out beautifully, as if by magic!!
When it comes to decorating our homes, I believe rules should be taken with a grain of salt, more like guidelines than can help us through the process than ideas set to stone. And have you noticed how most of the spaces we love are highly personal and breaking quite a few of those set “rules”? I say we make our own rules as we go along, and our only guide should be “surround yourself with things you love”. Who cares if it’s not perfect? If YOU love it, it’s good enough. I for one would love to curl up in this perfectly imperfect nook, with a roaring fire, watching the snow outside!
