White, blue, and gold living room with Wisteria and Dwell With Dignity #WisteriaMood contest on Thou Swell @thouswellblog

I’m excited to enter into Wisteria and Dwell With Dignity’s #WisteriaMood contest, where four entrants will get the chance to design a product, of which the proceeds go to support Dwell With Dignity, a non-profit agency who transforms lives by designing and installing “complete home interiors for families who desperately need an environment that will support health and wellness.” I met the lovely founders of DWD at the Design Bloggers Conference in 2015 and I am always so moved seeing how they change the lives of families by giving them a supportive home. I created a blue, white, and gold design with Wisteria’s collection of worldly contemporary furnishings! Continue reading to find all the details.

Blue and white living room design with Wisteria and Dwell With Dignity #WisteriaMood contest on Thou Swell @thouswellblog

A blue velvet settee takes center stage in this fresh living space, with Moroccan and mid-century influences striking a contrast with the traditional architecture. I pulled hints of pale blue through the room with the mirror and egg print to balance the saturated settee, while floating the seating on a pale neutral cowhide rug with a white accent chair and chest and a simple marble pedestal table. Stronger black motifs ground the room with the black marble lamp, striped side table, and Moravian star lantern. A charcoal wall can also be seen in the next room over, paired with a Moroccan mirror. Subtle splashes of gold add brassy matte metallics, in the lamps, palm catchall on the side table, and modernist cube tables paired at the center of the vignette.

How do you like my eclectic take on a blue and white living room?

  1. Good luck with the contest! I love how the patterns and colours aren’t all matchy-matchy, because it’s easy to make something look uniform, but the variety of patterns, textures, and colours make it a lot more interesting! Love the cowhide rug 🙂 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
