LIVING ROOM INSPIRATION: Euro Sophisticate

By Erika Brechtel @smallshopstudio

…with a touch of glam…

As you may know, I’ve been working on my living room for quite some time. It’s been 90% there for a long while, and that 10% just keeps changing on me!! Lately, I’ve been drawn to rooms that have a bit more of a traditional feel to them, and this really surprises me. But I think it’s the sophistication of these spaces, mixed with gold/brass, mirrored furniture, fur, and large-scale art. There aren’t a lot of strong patterns – but these rooms are rich in texture:

*In that top photo, Design Darling posted about blowing up a travel photo and she totally got me pumped to tackle that 10% once and for all. I immediately grabbed my husband (b/c as you know when inspiration strikes, it’s clearly an emergency) and we flipped through photos he took of a train station in Portugal by architect Calatrava. Here’s the one we landed on, and I cannot wait to get this puppy up on our wall:

I’ve been working a revised board for the room too, which I will share next week. Hopefully my 2012 will get off to a productive start!
