Dissecting the Details: Blair Harris



Hello fabulous LDV readers! Nancy of Marcus Design here, and I'm thrilled to be back with another Dissecting the Details. Today's topic of interest is the living room designs of New York-based Blair Harris. I've spotted 3 key elements that Blair tends to use in her glamorous spaces, let's dissect:





I love that Blair adds a cozy little nook for reading to most of her designs. It helps the room appear 'approachable' and liveable. Add built-in book shelves that are carried over the doorway and I am in heaven!





I love the airy quality of Blair's living spaces, and the pastel tones she uses can be manipulated to appear masculine or feminine with carefully selected accessories, as in the 2 examples above.





There's nothing more appealing to the eye than symmetry. It's been tried and tested and in my books, it wins every time. Whether with simple frames above the sofa, or an elaborate layout of furnishings in a mirror-image arrangement, the effect always works!

And there you have it, 3 ways that Blair Harris creates glamorous, yet liveable and inviting living rooms. Visit her site to see more from her portfolio.

I agree about the comfy nooks -- so necessary in design! at least for me!
