Living in a city full of movement, art, structures, and bold colors I thought it would be fun to tap into my inner city girl, and share tips on how to create a polished city inspired living room. Rule 1. Do not be afraid to use bold patterns! Bold patterns and artwork are key components to successfully achieving this fabulous fashion forward look. A few great resources for some striking artwork are websites like 1st Dibs, Art.com, and Z Gallerie. 2. Add in some solid pieces to add balance. Solid furnishings such as the grey sofa act as a great backdrop when placed in a space full of statement pieces. 3. Find an area rug that makes a statement. Area rugs define a space and are a great way to bring in pattern, color, and warmth. West Elm, Jaipur, and Home Decorators are a few places that you should visit when shopping around for that perfect area rug. 4. Remember that a space is not complete with out black. Perhaps I just made that up because black is my favorite color, but it seriously adds a subtle but dramatic feel that this type of style calls for. Now that you have these great tips under your belt you are ready to get out there and start shopping.
