There are design elements and furnishings that I return to time and again. Chances are pretty good that you have one or more of these things in your house because some are standbys and others are part of a group of neo-classics and will work in a whole host of different interiors.
Ceramic Gourd Lamps – If you’re looking for a table lamp, you’ve likely considered some iteration of a ceramic gourd lamp and for good reason, they’ll work virtually any where. You can find them at almost any price point.
Seagrass Rug –Durable, natural, ready for layering and full of texture…what more do you want in a rug
English Roll Arm Sofa – Unlike diamonds which aren’t actually forever, your English roll arm sofa is. Don’t ever get rid of it just keep getting reupholstered when it starts to look rough.
Industrial Faucet -I love the bridge faucets as much as the next person but there’s something about the ease of use of the pull-down faucet.
Woven/Bamboo Shades – Affordable and always warm and neutral when layered with linen drapes. Woven shades have a casual vibe but they can also get as traditional and buttoned up as you want them to.
White Gallery Frames – Where do you look these days where you don’t see a gallery wall? Family photographs, personal mementos, great art, it doesn’t matter do it with gallery frames.
Modern/Rustic Coffee Table – A great example of a neo-classic, the rustic wood top paired with the straight and square lines of a metal base is pervading all interiors.
