A ho-hum space becomes a beautiful riot of colour and texture.
The key to making a statement on a budget? A little creativity. Tasked with styling a small, detached-garage Calgary home with few interesting architectural elements for a young couple, interior designer Natalie Fuglestveit went bold in the living room (without breaking the bank) by incorporating rich hues inspired by Morocco and adding beautiful, natural textures—think bright, patterned cushions and a retro-cool wicker armchair. The focal point, of course, is a display of vibrant woven bowls from Ten Thousand Villages, attached directly to the wall to add character and depth. “I just took some screws and went for it!” Fuglestveit laughs. She also got crafty with the coffee table, cutting the bottoms off of two nailhead-lined side tables to get the look she wanted. “It’s about balancing out that eclectic, bohemian element with something crisp and modern,” she says.
