Fabulous Room Friday 04.01.10

all1

There are so many fun design elements present in this home, belonging to Annie Salem, a friend of Sam Sano’s from Style/Swoon and co-author of The Now with partner, Elizabeth Midgett. I love the use of bold patterns, like the zig zag rug, vintage furniture and great lighting, art and accessories. She was able to give a new construction home so much character.

{Rather than putting a console table behind the sofa, Annie chose to maximize the space by adding a functional desk instead.}

{I love this nook on the opposite side of the room!}

WoW small world I've admired Annie's place since seeing it from Style/Swoon.

I'm currently enamored with the fresh teals of this season, so that little pop of color caught my eye. I also like the way she tucked the small desk behind the sofa. Many of us need multifunctional furniture ideas for small spaces - and this is a good one.

Ok, this is fabulous! Now I gotta have some personalized match sticks in a beautiful bowl! The details are D-lish!

Julia said...

Very smart way to utilize the space. The bookcase is so adorable and fits the purpose too.

Hi everyone - it's Annie Salem. Thanks to everyone for their incredibly kind comments about my home. I was SO incredibly lucky to have had Sam Sano of style/SWOON (both my designer and personal friend) design my downstairs for me. She is FABULOUS! Sam took my vision and executed it beyond what I could have ever imagined. Be sure to visit style/SWOON if you haven't already!

And many thanks to Paloma for the Fabulous Room Friday feature =)

xoxo Annie
