NY Good Questions: Sophisticated Decor Ideas?

Pin it button big

Dear AT,

I had never considered my Bouganvillea Pink Hallway 'Barbie Vomit Pink' until I read the term on this website.

Now, struck with pregnancy nesting hormones and the stark revelation that my home might soon contain barbies, I want to up my sophistication factor.

Luckily, other than the pink which I would like to keep, I have a blank slate of white and pine.

The apartment is a well-lit 1000 square feet in southern Spain so I am not afraid of adding something dark and daring.

The only two elements I can't change are the soft-beigy orange sofa and the tile floor which is the same throughout...

I am considering pulling in charcoal grey to add some depth, ground the space and tie in the floor.

Black and white graphic prints and photos also come to mind.

I also want to focus on some very grown-up lighting and fabric, so that the addition of some toys doesn't turn the place into a theme park.

Any ideas on color inspirations, lighting or other details to up the sophistication factor?

Thanks! Rea
