This year in New York we had a long winter and snowfall right into the first week of April; this third week into April, we are finally seeing a little green on the ground and the leaves starting to bud on the trees. Mountain and Coastal (or Waterside) Living are both an important part of daily life in New York, just like it is for many in their own unique locations. And for our first blog post, we have a set of 4 inspirational room settings of Modern, Contemporary, Rustic Natural and Classic decor themes that reflect these lifestyles. In the online store http://www.hudsonvalleydecor.com/ we offer a selection of home accents for living spaces that are similar to the rooms that are shown here.
A Modern decor with a mountainous window view, that features a mid-tone neutral (grayish/taupe) wrap-around sectional sofa, polished wood banquette and shelving, selective accessories and a dark solid-color area rug. This room of neutral colors and cubic block shapes is rich with the light, texture and ease that welcomes guests into your personal space.
A Rustic Natural living room that is fitted to Country or Mountainside living, and also expressing an appreciation for a more Classic furnishing and color theme. The neutral white and gray tones in the area rugs, drapes and sofa are contrasted with a lush purple upholstered loveseat; wood, metal and glass accent tables and the encompassing rustic beams, stone chimney and artistically stacked real wood logs complete this look that also bespeaks of an open cleanliness where comfort is essential. The deer head above the fireplace can easily be changed out for a decorative mirror or painting.
This room from Elle Decor displays once again the unwaivering appeal of a Coastal living space. Refreshed with a new orange accent color and carefully selected accessories blending with ease into a natural seaside lifestyle. Here the way of life is the statement instead of the decorating theme, similar to what is said in fashion...don't let the dress wear you, but you should wear or live the dress. This room is lived in, creative, clean, as if the resident could walk in at any moment with friends, have a seat and share drinks.
Another Coastal theme room with a lived in and elegant look that manages Casual and Formal, Modern and Classical elements, but in a smaller space. This could be an updated coastal cottage with a renovation focus on the windows and the view as the primary decor accent for a day-by-day life that is in touch with nature at its core. Or, this could also be an amazing vacation getaway with an open concept living area, a kitchen galley and island along the land-locked wall, perhaps a couple bedrooms to the side, a landing loft above. There are many possibilities for your imagination to take flight on, and the comfy home accent accessories to make a cup of tea or coffee, cozy up with a throw blanket, and share with friends your latest ocean find or handmade art 'n sculpture.
