I'm so excited to introduce you to our new monthly series where I am going to explore how music inspires interior design! Let me introduce you to our first artist, Ellie Goulding!

Ellie Goulding's second album Halcyon is scheduled to be released in October 2012 and the newly released single "Anything Could Happen" just proves that it's not going to disappoint. Goulding's music is filled with deep emotion and her raw and soulful vocals are sure to inspire. She is one of several female artists stepping in to define the feminine side of EDM (electronic dance music), a scene more associated with DJ machismo than the introversion of female singer-songwriters. She's a bundle of feminine soul with a sharp edge that transforms beautifully into interior design.

This feminine, modern living room is filled with bits of glitz and glam and lots of spunk. Crisp geometric shapes mix with solid clean lines to create visual interest and a sophisticated, but energetic edge. The clean lines of a modern leather sofa along with the glass and metal sides tables do a really good job of grounding the other elements in the room. The sharp contrast of elements blends like the perfect remix.

This modern dining room combines elements that evoke emotion much like Goulding's music does. It might be a little dark and moody, but the intimacy in this space is sure to captivate you. Combining sleek, modern furniture with contemporary pendant lighting adds personality and a feminine charm to the space. This is very similar to the way Goulding has meshed her music with the EDM movement. It's magical and thrilling, so now we just have to wait patiently for the release of Halcyon!  

Hope you enjoyed this first post in our new series as much as you are about to enjoy Ellie Goulding's first single off her new album, "Anything Could Happen"
