The Discern design team's inspiration for this look was to create a relaxed atmosphere, for a frequent traveller. The brief was to create a living room that would be a welcome respite to come home to, after a long trip, or even just a long day at the office. A Classic Rustic decor theme was adopted, to give the space a soft, countryside vibe.
The Classic Rustic decor style refers to and references Classic Vintage, French Country, Shabby-Chic, and American Classic furniture, which are derivatives of European and Colonial furniture, but simpler in form and detail. This style is best represented by distressed and deliberately worn-out finishes, with little-to-no-ornamentation, in order to create a more natural, casual and comfortable ambience in interior spaces. The furniture and soft furnishings were limited to pastel colours and a neutral shade. The Classic Rustic style is known for its warm-yet-neutral colour palettes. This palette goes a long way in achieving a distressed, antique or shabby-chic look since it's completely natural and timeless.
Apollo Sectional Sofa (Mist)
The creative thought behind this look was to create a living room that would be friendly and welcoming. There is an adequate amount of seating thanks to the L-shaped sofa and the ottoman. This type of furniture placement allows maximum seating in a small space and lends the room an informal and leisurely vibe.
The wall on which the windows are is painted in the Pantone shade colour 'Lake.' It is a dark and warm colour and is used to elevate the whole space as it contrasts beautifully with the light oak wooden floors. A cream (Pantone shade colour 'Luxe Blush') coloured wallpaper was picked to coordinate with the flooring. The wallpaper design is vintage and traditional, in accordance with the style. To break the monotony and lend the eye a break from the similar-coloured flooring and walls, the skirting was painted in white. The windows are layered with a white sheer, and slate coloured, pleated curtains complete the look.
The Maloney rug from The Rug Republic is hand-woven and crafted in wool. With its subtle colours and design, it gives the space a soft and traditional charm.
Chesterfield Ottoman in Leather
The handmade brown leather ottoman can be used as a table as well as for extra seating. The tufted accents on top make the ottoman look regal and old-school. The handcrafted legs add to the charm.
