One Nook, Two Looks – Changing Your Space With Accessories

One nook, two looks - changing your space with accessories

You got a peek at one of these vignettes in our Room Solutions – Dining Room Design Tips video, but what you didn’t see in the video was that same nook styled a little differently.

Seeing the two together is a nice visual of how accessories really can change the look and mood of a space.

NOOK #1:

In this vignette we have a mostly neutral color palette with a touch of blue.

The muted landscape provides a nice backdrop for the accessories on the sideboard and a textural woven rug gives some softness against the hardwood floors.

The curves of the accessories play well with the curves of the tufted chair, and a rustic vibe is created with distressed wood, iron, and books without covers.

The accessories, along with the more traditional lamp shade and ottoman, lean this vignette in a more traditional direction.

NOOK #2:

In the second vignette our design team added an energetic pop of orange with the artwork and repeated the color in the vases.

The curves in the lamp and vases still compliment the curves of the chair, but the pieces are clean and simple and lend a touch of contemporary to the space.

The off-white and wood lamp is a nice contrast against the orange artwork and the grasses nicely compliment the organic feel of the acacia sideboard.

It’s really interesting, isn’t it, the difference a few accessories can make?  Which nook is your favorite?

You can always find a great variety of artwork and accessories in our stores, and the selection is constantly rotating so it’s fun to see what’s new!

    I really like Nook #1 because of all the different textures and design of the accessories – both giving a great amount of interest in that small space making it feel very welcoming!

    It’s hard to choose a clear cut favorite, since I generally go for a little of this and a little of that. If i had to pick it would be the second nook with the orange canvas. BUT, for my ideal orange canvas nook I’d keep the sideboard dressed as is and change the chair to a contemporary look, but add back in that cube ottoman from the first look. It’s more traditional but I an drawn to the pattern on that cube so I’d need it in there some where!!
