Interior Design One Piece Two Looks

one piece, two looks.

I’m always intrigued on how different designers approach a space and how they decide which direction to go in. Generally, I begin with one main statement piece and design the rest of the space accordingly. Usually, the moment I see that piece I have an immediate idea in my mind on what should happen with it. That being said, there are so many directions that you could pursue with that one item, and it’s often interesting to think of alternative solutions.

So here’s our third shot at lark + linens new series: one piece, two looks. This weeks victim: the ever-so-popular Nate Berkus’ gold pouf in a bedroom setting.

gold pouf found here

and the others: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20

I’d love to know, which do you prefer? And as an aside, if there are any items you’d like me to incorporate into this series, please feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I would be happy to design two spaces based on a piece of your chosing.

and take a look at the rest of the series here!

    I love your taste! I love the exotic look, but I always end up resorting to the classic option in most cases. Wonderful!

      I’m with you. I love the look of the exotic room but I always end up sticking to what I’m most comfortable with
