A More-is-More Design Approach
When it comes to decorating in tight quarters, I take a more-is-more approach. Layering with colors, patterns and textures creates a feeling of depth and warmth in a space that may be short on character and square inches.
Layer in Depth and Dimension
My Ed Ruscha inspired painted canvas looks playful front and center above the bed on top of paper die-cut panels (designed by Tord Boontje) hung above my bed. Mix in layers of contrasting design eras and styles for added dimension in a shoebox. If you look closely, the paper panels feature sweet cutout bunnies, deer and flowers, which stand out against the modern typography in the painting.
Sit with your new layered design for a day or two. Snap a photo for a fresh perspective and then edit.
