"A harmony of opposites," Brown calls it. The living room is a "comfortable mix of contrasting elements," from the boxy Christian Liaigre sofa to an ikat-covered French bergère. Curtains are contemporary in their stark white simplicity and plain cornice, but ample enough to soften the room's modernist edge, as do the curves and spots of a cowhide rug.

Mix and Chic. I lust after this super stylish room. What amazes me is how powerful the smallest burst of color can be in a room otherwise dominated by black, white and brown. The groovy green of the bolster pillow is subtly mirrored around the room: in the coffee table book and two tiny potted plants. The floor lamp is like a leggy sculpture and the hide rug brings a brightness and organic irregularity to the room. But look closer at some of the other elements. The traditional curtains, for example. Not an obvious choice by any stretch but a very wise one. Anything but basic white would certainly make the room far too busy. And how about the patterned French-style armchair? I may have been reluctant to echo the black and white of the hide rug, fearing it would be overkill. But the chair is terrific and fun and the perfect antidote to the wood industrial bookshelf and formal antique wood table on the left.
I love the idea of two coffee tables that can be moved around and used in multiple ways. Very practical.
I am going to buy pink drapes and hang em while Andrew is at work. Muahaha!
