Latest Living Room Thoughts: Organic Modern Neutral Glam?

By Erika Brechtel @smallshopstudio

Whatever we’re calling this recent trend, I’m totally digging it…

Follow up to last week’s post about using light blue to freshen up white/black/chrome/gold (à la the latest issue of Lonny), I’ve landed on a new scheme for our living room. Best thing about it is, there are only a few new pieces — the husband and wallet are grateful! And while I may not be able to repaint our walls light blue, I can paint a large canvas to put over the couch. Only problem now is I’m not totally sure what to call this style I seem to be so inspired by…

Latest Living Room Thoughts: Organic Modern Neutral Glam?

The old:
Room & Board charcoal gray sleeper sectional sofa, white Barcelona chair,
Saarinen tulip side table, fluted glass column lamp, vintage NY subway sign

Recent buys:
Beni ourain rug, Nate Berkus for HSN Moroccan-style lantern,
Tom Ford and Kate Moss by Mario Testino books, vintage Gucci ashtray (Etsy)

The new:
Faux gazelle horns*, West Elm mongolian lamb pillows and frosted foil pillow,
Sonneman pharmacy brass floor lamp, D.I.Y. 48″ x 36″ painted canvas

Not shown:
Dark walnut floors, tan walls, mahogany c-table ( = the “organic” factor),
chrome x-base glass coffee table (for now)

So, what do I call this look, do you think? I should probably throw in Minimalist in there too. It’s never-ending isn’t it? Help!
