Perfect imperfection.

This room was featured on Design*Sponge earlier in the week and it has my design wheels turning. I’m probably not going to start ripping up walls this weekend, but I am inspired by how put together this “unfinished” style looks. I’m a symmetry queen, a piles and stacks addict, and need everything to be evenly space and squared off. Perhaps a little haphazard-ness is needed to soften decor though, that’s what drew me to this room after all. What do you think? Do you like this look?

Check out  the rest of the house tour on Design*Sponge.

    I saw this and fell in love. It reminds me of the place Julia stayed in Italy in Eat, Pray, Love. Rustic, antique and modern all in one. The perfect place to read a stack of magazines!

    I honestly don’t know! I like it but I don’t love it…if that makes sense! Maybe if the walls wern’t yellow, maybe if they were a spiderweb-brown or a pale tan I would like it better!?

    I love it…so unique. I adore the little ottoman too.

    I actually love this. It looks like an anthro display. It actually looks exactly like my sisters old apartment – except hers had red walls, you would have loved it!

    Ah! Thank you for this! I, too, have a serious symmetry problem (and a problem with liking things in threes, despite the bad luck connotation). I really like this room – casual, yet put together – and very asymmetrical. The best thing about it? It looks like someone actually lives there.

    I love this look, I like to call it messy chic. The problem is I’m to anal retentive to live in messy chic.
