SERIES: My Home, My Space

What is your favorite area in your home and why?             

 Hi everyone! This is Paloma from La Dolce Vita and Paloma Contreras Design. I am thrilled to share my favorite space in our home with you. It's pretty appropriate that this Made by Girl series about favorite spaces as opposed to a favorite room because my favorite area in our house is composed of three rooms that open onto one another. When you walk into my home, you arrive in the entryway shown above. Directly across from that on the right, is my formal dining room and on the left, my formal living room. 

Admittedly, we don't spend too much time in these rooms except for when we have friends or family over, but I feel like this overall space is a pretty accurate reflection of our style. I love that black and white serves as the foundation, accented by some pops of color, abstract art, and a few bold patterns.

DO YOU have a favorite space in your home?!? If so, would you like to feature it on MADE BY GIRL? Email me with 4-7 pics of the space & we may just consider posting it!

  2. I love her wall colours! Super space.

  3. How do I submit photos of my favorite room? What's the Email Address?

  4. I like how you arrange the decorative pieces and the flowers together on top of the white storage cabinet. They add some colour and life into the room because the wall at the entryway is already white, followed by the white storage cabinet. It would look rather dull and lifeless if it hadn't been for those ornaments on top of the storage cabinet. As for the other 2 rooms, I now have an idea on how to decorate a dark-coloured room without making it feel a little too cluttered.
