We at Decoist love a good home tour! There’s something about getting an inside look at the creative interiors of others. These spaces inspire us on our own design journeys. Today we round up 17 stellar living rooms. Some of them belong to talented bloggers, and some belong to our favorite designers. Others are the homes of people like you and me. People who love design and aren’t afraid to take chances. Check out the interesting decor choices below, then tell us about your favorites at the end of the post…
Unique Interior Design Ideas for Your Living Space
We begin with the living space of interior designer Nate Berkus (back when he lived in Chicago). This eclectic living room features a range of looks, from industrial shelving to gilded chairs. Berkus’ space reminds us that some of the most interesting interiors involve a mix of styles and pieces. [from Elle Decor]
Next we see a living room designed by Kelly Wearstler. One feature that catches our eye: wall lights salvaged from a Roman cinema (currently hanging on either side of the fireplace). Don’t hesitate to incorporate pieces with their own unique stories. It’s items like these that give a place true character! [from Architectural Digest]
Anyone else a huge fan of home tours a la Apartment Therapy? One such tour features the house of Cass & Carla, which boasts a collection of carefully selected items that are original in their style and design. Check out the layered soil of the terrarium. Note the texture of the pillow on the modern chair. Let the metal wall sculpture help your imagination take flight. Delight in curating your space. It’s a privilege and a joy to have a place of your own!
Speaking of curating, don’t hesitate to piece together a gallery wall filled with eye-catching art. This space from West Elm showcases a range of interesting pieces. Let your personality and style guide you in your collecting endeavors, and don’t be too consumed with making each piece fit into a cohesive theme. Go with artwork that you love. If you’re true to yourself, the pieces are likely to blend and make sense.
