What's Your Style Part III

Ally from, From the Right Bank, has put out a wonderful challenge to her fellow bloggers to come up with a photo representing their style. Here's mine! I'm calling it "casual eclectic." I love everything about this room, including the room's design Monelle Totah, head designer for Williams Sonoma Home.

So what do I love about this space? Let me count the ways...

1. The furniture is neutral and colorful accents are brought in to give the space character and depth.
2. It incorporates a trend. Do you notice the faux bamboo dresser? I love it! It is so "in" right now.
3. A touch of elegance. The chandelier brings a sophistication to the space.
4. Modern art paired with traditional furniture. This is definitely my look. I find that when modern art is with modern furniture the space can look, well, too modern. And when everything is traditional in a room, it can look too dated.
5. A contemporary patterned rug to define the space.
6. A punch of color. Accomplished here with bright art and orange accents.
7. Bringing the outdoors in. The beautiful flower and bowl of fruit soften up the space.
Great challenge, Ally!!
