Glamorous and eclectic -homes with the best of both worlds

Mixing glamorous and eclectic is not an easy pair to resolve, but I'd say these spaces were beyond successful...

Bold jewel toned walls and furniture take the earthy elements in the room, like the raw wood shelf, up a notch on the glamor scale....

Here, the mod lines of the credenza look good with the Asian pedestal table and birdcage because objects are kept orderly and the space around the furnishings otherwise sparse.

Lining the back of a bookcase with a modern take on an ancient pattern creates an interesting focal point.


I adore this room. The walls are kept quiet, and the bold graphic rug takes the stage.

Can you believe that the black chest of drawers were originally from Ikea, but dressed up to look like a one-of-a-kind piece?

Love these rooms. The first and last picture is from Naomi's home of http://designmanifest.blogspot.com/. She's so talented and the rest of her loft is incredible.

@Lindsey - Thanks for the clarification Lindsey! I couldn't gather from the magazine article if it was one home, or a compilation of several homes.

Sorprendida me he quedado de ver que el mueble negro de la ├║ltima imagen es de Ikea, no lo parece. Un trabajo magistral de bricolage.Un abrazo.

Naomi's space is one of my very favourite spaces of all time. You should go to her blog and check out the Apartment Therapy tour for a better look at her space. You'll die!

I love Alaina's taste, and how she layers everything she does to stand out!
