As much as I love a very tailored looking room, I also love the look of space that looks totally lived in and comfortable. This room from the May ’06 issue of InStyle is the perfect example of a “lived in” space. The cozy looking furniture, plush pillows, layered rugs and soft curtains all add to the rooms comfort factor. I also love the blue accents, the Asian influences and the striking black and white art on the wall. Recently, I spotted this same photo on the website of House Eclectic. Here is the same photo featured the House Eclectic home page from a reverse and slightly closer perspective. This room looks like the perfect place to just curl up and relax. Love it!
