Hello everyone! Nancy of Marcus Design here for my latest installment of Dissecting the Details. New York based design duo Kirsten Kelli have such a lovely and extensive portfolio, and I’m sharing four of the key features that they utilize in their living room designs. They have a beautiful take on neo-traditionalism, let’s dissect:
I’ve always loved the idea of a living room large enough to house multiple separate groupings of furniture. It seems so conducive to having family & friends over and naturally forming many conversations around the room. The layout also becomes a lot more interesting in the way that all the furniture it’s lined up against 4 the walls!
Just a tiny touch of leopard seems to be a go-to for Kirsten Kelli. Through throw pillows, stools, or even stunning chairs – they prove that leopard really is a neutral!
We all love a good blue & white or black and white space, and even when Kirsten Kelli adds a dose of color it’s in a very restrained way. A classic palette will never go out of style.
When you look closely, you’ll find you can count about 10-12 patterns in each of these spaces above! The ladies expertly layer multiple fabrics and patterns for a mix that never looks too busy despite all that is going on in the room. Throw pillows are a wonderful opportunity to do this, and of course elements like a rug, drapery, and the furnishings add to the luxe mix.
These 4 features help create the beautiful spaces above, and I’m going to be adding them to my wishlist for my own living room. To see more from Kirsten Kelli, head to their website here. See you next time!
