Utilizing Brush Strokes!

A huge and exciting trend that I have been seeing lately is brushstrokes. Whether it is in fabric, wallpaper, or accessories, simply adding paint strokes is the perfect solution to bringing life and texture into your space. I have selected a few spaces, as well as accessories where designers have used this technique to create exquisite interiors.

I adore this entryway by Kelly Wearstler. The combination of the timeless and elegant staircase with the funky paint strokes is dynamite. The orange color of the strokes is also a great way to make a bold statement.

Here is another eclectic mix of traditional pieces and bold pink paint strokes. This is Amanda Nisbet’s bedroom for the Kip’s Bay Decorator Show House. I love how she has chosen to use fine and delicate antique furnishings, and then off sets it with the vibrant and surprising wallpaper! This type of wallpaper is a great way to bring the look of texture into a space.

I adore these lamps from Bunny Williams. This shows how brush strokes can also look fabulous in accessories and furniture. Again, showing how you can mix such opposite styles to create your own amazing look; contrasting the antique delicate gold base with the wild, yet tamed paint strokes is so creative!

The fabric on this chair has created an updated look for this traditional side chair. I also love the contrast of the bright colors. This is the perfect way to create a statement piece that would be sure to turn heads!

I hope that you have been inspired by these creatively designed spaces and accessories for the next time you are trying to update and originate the look of your space. If you would like further inspiration, please feel free to view my work or contact me with any comments or suggestions.

And remember as always, It’s All in the Details.
