Hello lovely LDV readers! Nancy of Marcus Design here, and I’m thrilled to be back with another edition of Dissecting the Details. Today, I’m honing in on the glamorous work of interior designer Benjamin Dhong. His chic living rooms contain a few very consistent elements that together are a formula for success in these spaces. Let’s dissect:
Whether it’s mirrors, scones, or bookends, if you take a look at all of the images in this post you will find a bit of brass in each space. I think this yellow metal adds warmth and depth to these rooms, and of course a touch of glam!
Tried and tested – symmetry is pleasing to the eyes. But I actually do enjoy that Benjamin adds at least one or two items to throw off the symmetry ever so slightly.
I adore this element to Benjamin’s living spaces – each room contains a combination of unique side tables, exotic stools, plush upholstered benches … the list goes on! And the result is a perfectly layered effect.
As glamorous as the above spaces are, they are also being off-set with rustic earthy elements. Benjamin utilizes wood logs, woven baskets, flowers, oversized branches in vases, and even boxwoods to accomplish this appealing balance.
