Colourful Condo

Did you see this condo in Style at Home? It belongs to Lindsay Mens who is part of Sarah Richardson's design team. I really love the way she successfully brought together an eclectic mix of furniture, colours and objects. This is the type of interior that I gravitate towards. I appreciate that the space is pretty and pulled together (certainly it's been styled for the magazine), but I also like the fact that it looks like she purchased the items over time and each piece has meaning to her. In the article she said if something speaks to her, she buys it-that's the key to an interesting space. She has mixed big box store finds, antiques, vintage pieces and family cast offs to produce a truly homey feel all in only 800 square feet.


Using a red medallion rug was a bold choice-I think it works!



Love the mix of vintage lamp, old and new turquoise glass and deco mirror.




I will come clean now---I will be copying this idea. I have a key hole desk that needs the "spray treatment" to become a pretty dressing table.
