    Introducing 5 Favorite Design Elements Series

    With great pleasure, I'm introducing a new guest blogger series called 5 Favorite Design Elements and our first blogger...Sharalee from escapades. When I first got into blogging, it was her blog that had me clicking through the images for hours, saving them to my personal design files on my computer. You can be sure to escape to another world when you visit escapades.  
    Hello - Sharalee here from escapade, very happy to be visiting here to share 5 of my favourite Design Elements. While each space can be as unique and varied as the inhabitants within its walls, and there can be beauty found in the most unlikely of combinations, there are some tried and true elements that consistently catch my eye and keep me coming back to them, time after time.
    Ornate wood moldings, blond chevron wood floors, high ceilings - I dream of a Hausmann-era Parisian apartment with all its characteristic details. I'd love to contrast these elements with more modern furniture pieces and art.
    Natural light -while I love looking at interesting lamps and fixtures, there's no substitute for an abundance of natural light. It illuminates a space in a way that no artificial sources ever can and always elevates your mood.
    Mirrors - for their ability to add a sense of light and space to any small corners. But also a little bit of sparkle and understated glamour with even the simplest of mirror shapes and frames.
    Salvaged architectural details- like these sculptural columns add an element of art to the boxiest of spaces. I love a good mix of old and new and give a feeling of character and interest.
    Moroccan tiles and unexpected touches of pattern and colour. While I generally stay away from an abundance of pattern,  I also love the richness and sense of energy that bold patterns and rich hues bring to a space.
    Thank you for having me!
