See that little green bench in the Room of the Week? The creative tension it gives the room is one of my favorite details. It’s a little more country in style compared with the rest of the furnishings, and it’s paint is scuffed up. But, it really helps off-set all the new elements in the room, and give the room a sense of history.
Adding a design element that’s just a little different from the rest of the items creates a really nice creative tension in a room and keeps it from looking stale. The piece doesn’t have to be too wacky or bizarre…just something in a different style or shape or color than would be expected.
Want a little farmhouse bench of your own?
Also….did you notice I did a little renovation on my blog design? I’m getting ready to launch my design business and trying to make my sites coordinate….more on that to come next week! Have a great weekend!
