Treat Walls Like a Canvas

Big, bold and graphic is the best way to capture Jennifer's interpretation of Italy. This room is successful for many reasons, including the fact that she has managed to showcase what her unique design perspective truly is. The bright yellow walls outlined with abstract floral motifs outlined in dark blue easily suggest the painted pottery that Italy is so famous for, while the rustic finish on the coffee table subtly suggests the Italian countryside. Although I am less of a fan of the finishing touches that almost seem like an afterthought, Jennifer scores big by thinking big. Walls are the biggest opportunity to make a design statement, and she seizes the moment by innovatively transforming these large surfaces into works of art.
