Which do you prefer?

Posted March 23, 2010 by Christina

Both of these spaces are pretty clean and simple. But which do you prefer? I think I like a few more accessories? I feel lost in a space without that personal touch. Or is it a personal touch when you choose not to really accessorize?


Very Clean and simple..

Some accessories thrown in...

A Perfect Gray

a few accessories for sure. although I have come to love spare, the first image is too spare for me (but I will take that floor, any day.) Love the quirky pieces in the second image – what is that wall pair below the antelope mount….? a fun look. thanks!

I like them both, but the first one is so clean that it reminds me of a chiropractors office. More is more lovely!

While I am adverse to those specific accessories (I draw the line at hanging animals on my wall)I am drawn to rooms with that collected-over-time look. The first one is nice, but it sort of feels like a furnished rental for an executive.

top one has lots of books which is great. Imagine sitting in these rooms if it weren’t your house.. What would interest you? I like to look at belongings…doesn’t have to be alot..but I have a better time in someones house if they have a lot of stuff to look at, find out stories behind the stuff…but mind you, only quality not quanity..Cynthia

I’m finding that over time, my taste is shifting from the first two the second. I keep adding more “stuff” to my home (and my clients) and I like it. I don’t think I’ll ever start to like ‘clutter’ but a collected aesthetic speaks to me a lot more now than it used to.

give me my STUFF, give me my CLUTTER, give me something to make it my own! i’m a fan of the nesting…bringing STUFF home to make things comfy! xo

#2, but I like the color palette of both. Accessories warm up an all-white interior so that it’s not so stark.

I gravitate to the first. Sort of surprising bc I am very much an accessory girl. Although now that I really think about it, I’m more about accessories in fashion than interiors. Interesting…

Fun post! Marija

I like the second… it has more personality… although I like the books from the first pne!

I love the bones and floor of no 1, but have to agree that it is otherwise too bold and bare.
No 2 for me it is!
