thoughtful design | pretty proportions

As some of you long term readers may know, I’m a big fan of contrast as a design element. Lately, that’s been evolving into a love for an odd mix of proportions, which I see as a way to create contrast using the size of pieces themselves. Sometimes it could be built into the individual object (i.e. a piece of furniture or art), like a small detail within a grander landscape. Sometimes it’s a balance of unusually scaled items around the room that draws your eye in a new direction.

These rooms and pieces show just a few ways to pull it off. What do you think? Would you use this method? I think it’s unorthodox in an pretty awesome way.
