Dream Living Room — i call it “gothic glam cavewoman”!

ARHAUS wanted to know what my dream living room would look like.  i had to think about that. would it be zen and neutral…would it be pumped-up energic jewel tones?  after taking inventory of how brain dead i am at the end of the day, i came up with this:  i wanted to climb into a dark beautiful hole.

think:  sumptuous fabrics, slubby silks, italian glass, antique mirrors, deep plums, electric azure blues, gilded finishes, and a roaring fireplace!  the tufted ARHAUS sectional has that classic look that sets the tone for the rest of the room. paneled walls, coffered ceiling and lots of books would line the walls. in my brain, a room MUST have wallpaper — mural-sized installation from the ARHAUS paper collection would set off an antique French limestone fireplace.  lighting fixtures from Nancy Corzine, ArteriorsHome, Donghia would light up the space. Textiles from all my favorites — Romi, Osborne&Little, Rubelli, Sahco, Organic Looms, Tufenkian… delicious. and of course the TV is hidden in a cabinet so it’s only seen when i hit the remote and it lifts up!
