What’s Your Style in One Picture Challenge

Ally at From The Right Bank is holding her third What’s Your Style in One Picture Challenge. The name says it all — post one picture that sums up your design style.

I’m a bit all over the place when it comes to interior design — I like so many styles, it’s hard to narrow the choice down to just one. But in the end, the one room that sums up my style better than any other is fashion designer Monique Lhuillier’s living room:

Seriously, what’s not to love about this gorgeous room?! The grey colour scheme, the luxurious fabrics on the sofa & chairs and the drapery, the organic wood side table, the zebra print, the patterned rug, the mirrored coffee table, the hits of colour from the purple orchids and the vase of hydrangeas… love, love, LOVE it all!!

If you’d like to see more of Monique’s beautiful living room, her home was featured in the January/February 2008 issue of Elle Decor. You can see the slide show of her home here.

Are you going to take the What’s Your Style in One Room Challenge?? Let me know if you do, and I’ll be sure to drop by your blog and check it out :-)

Great choice!! I am in love with wooden stump side tables. I actually have 3 sitting in my garage right now waiting to be stripped and varnished!

Lisa said...

Ahh! Makes me want to finish the stump that is in my backyard right now au naturel and there's a few more at my cottage too! Love the room you choose so elegant. I posted a picture of my style on Ally's From the Right Bank as well - Check it out!

Ah such a classy space! I want to partake in the challenge, but I just can't find anything that JUST right! :(
Too picky, per usual.

Kelly you just can't be serious about this question - this room of course:

Haha - this room would fulfill all my dreams to live in the land of fairy tales. If I had the money I would change the deco every month or so - this way you would never get tired of it.

Awesome choice, Kelly. I love how they incorporated the hits of glam around the room (mirrored coffee table, the play on geometry w/ the side table triangles) with the nature aspects (tree stump side table, and zebra prints).

And of course, I love the grey scheme :)

Great choice so chic but still inviting. I have thought about doing this challenge but not sure one picture would do it for me to be honest. I just might try though, Kathysue

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

I'm still looking for that pictures that conveys it all!!

Tobe @ Two Tall Blondes said...

Oh, and thanks again for the contest mention in your side bar! You are soooo sweet! xo

Marcus Design said...

I love your room choice Kelly!! It's so you, with the grey and touches of perfect purple! I love the furnishing, and the bits of glam. I die for those french doors as well. I still think we are sharing a brain, I could have this as my one picture as well ;)

Linda @ theLENNOXX said...

I'm with you all the way on this, the room you selected is drop dead gorgeous! I wouldn't expect anything less, haha!!

Susan said...

Hi Kelly,

I love that room. In fact, I think I used it in a previous post earlier this year. Room envy or design style BOTH!

I got my mag today... it's official :)

This room is a classic! I love it as much today as I did when it was first published. Thanks so much for participating in my challenge!

Love that this very classic room has been given a modern edge with the wood stump side table and zebra print cushions!

Barbara Matson said...
