These are the images that have caught my eye this morning. If there’s a common thread here, I’d call it relaxed sophistication. Let me know if any of these rooms capture you too.

Barcelona Chairs

I'm a big fan of these Barcelona Chairs. | japanesetrash.com

Of course I’m a huge fan of these Barcelona Chairs. The caramel colored leather is an awesome choice.

Kitchen Glimpse

A glimpse of dine-in kitchen. | japanesetrash.com

Fun textures and great colors in this dine-in kitchen; I applaud the inclusion of contrasting pieces to liven up the space.

Wood Wrap

Interesting wall treatment here. | japanesetrash.com

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a wall done this way–these are large wooden panels that have been attached, but I could imagine it done with wallpaper.

Colorful Texture

A ton of great texture in this corner. | japanesetrash.com

This is just the perfect little corner.

Informal Gallery Wall

Terrific informal gallery wall. | japanesetrash.com

An artistic office lounge space.

I’ll always love great chairs, like the chairs in these images. Interestingly, they are all images from the same home.

A terrific space; all these pieces work really well. | japanesetrash.com

Along with the chairs, all of the other pieces are terrific as well.

Eames Aluminum Task Chairs used as dining chairs. | japanesetrash.com

These Eames Aluminum Side Chairs make perfect dining room chairs and a great break from all the wood in this room.

Eames Aluminum Management Chairs used in the breakfast area. | japanesetrash.com

And here’s the brother to the above–the Eames Aluminum Management Chair used in a light and airy breakfast area.

This Russian apartment, designed by Italians Lazzaro Rabon and Andrei Fabbri, has been floating around the interwebs and is too good not to pick up and post. The key to the interior design here, for me, is the designers’ deft way of mixing neutrals–various greys with some browns plus black and white thrown in–to create an attractive space that has a quiet but distinct liveliness. There’s both refinement and relaxation in these spces, with just the right amount of just the right pieces. One thing that I particularly appreciate is the level of contrast found in each of the rooms; I’m not a fan of using pieces together that are the same hue — solid black dining chairs with a solid black dining table, for example. Without contrast, everything blends together into one mass and there’s absolutely no pulse at all. Enjoy!
