Creating neutral livable spaces are always a safe bet, and for the most part I always try and create rooms that allow flexibility and possibility for change and personalization over time for their occupants. However, there can be beauty in spaces that possess a great variety of textures, colors, materials, shapes and yet somehow they all work together. As a designer, those are the most satisfying projects, and most often than not, are your calling card.
I believe that the key to making all the elements work, is having a firm vision for the purpose of the room, It can be a feeling, a story, it can be a character or even an action!
Don’t be afraid of mixing and matching! There is such a thing as “A Beautiful Mess”
Here are examples of rooms that inspire me, not my work unfortunately :)
