Seeing Double

Kerrisdale Design

Some say the kitchen is the heart of the house, but I’d argue that the true heart is the main seating area. This is where martinis and heart-to-hearts happen. This is where you take refuge after a horrendous day. This is where you snuggle up with the people you love. Big expectations for such a condensed space! That’s why striking a serene balance is important. A well-balanced space automatically soothes your brain (just ask your therapist!) and makes you feel protected. One easy way to achieve this sense of zen is by mirroring your sofas then anchoring them with a fabulous cocktail table. Sprinkle the space with an accent chair, pillow, blankets and voila! Instant ooohhhhmmmm…

    I just discovered your fantastic blog via HC and love your topics and images. We actually worked with Lynn Morgan on the last project – the faux fiddle leaf fig tree and boxwood topiaries in the windows are from our company – Diane James Home.

    Thanks, Cynthia, I’m so glad you found me! I absolutely adore the fiddle leaf tree…it really makes the room. Congrats on a gorgeous arrangement.
