How, oh, How do I decide what to write about!
So, I'm going to post some things that I am loving today.
There's so much I like about this room. I love the idea of a dining room that is large, yet intimate. The soft color palette is repeated in textural patterns throughout the room, but because it's soft and blended, it doesn't feel busy. I LOVE the high, weathered, beamed ceilings, the fireplace, and the crystal chandelier that looks like it came out of a 19th century French chateau. I love the impressive moldings, the glass hurricanes and the curtains over the doors. Sigh.......
I love pink. I've always loved pink, and I am fairly certain that I will grow old (or older!) loving pink. I'm so grateful that it is back in vogue....although for me, it always will be. I think the chair is most intriguing, and I love its sleek shape. I think Alice in Wonderland or the queen of England should sit in it.
It's a great idea to have seating at the end of the bed, and I really think these chairs are are very cool. They are a little unexpected, and that makes them fun. The juxtaposition of the contemporary shape on the chairs and the very primitive distressed furniture really speaks to eclectic design. The soft color palette with the pops of coral and pumpkin makes this a very refined, yet casual space.
Gotta love a porch! We're seeing new neighborhoods springing up in our area that have front porches and sidewalks around a central greenbelt area. Maybe neighbors will get to know one another again. It's a blast from the past that I think I could appreciate.
These next three rooms are the work of Interior Designer J. Hircsh from Atlanta. I spent a great deal of time perusing his website, and I found so much richness to his room design. Yummy.
I think ceilings should be interesting....coffers, beams, moldings, trays and beautiful lighting, and painted, of course.
I'd expect a gold leaf ceiling in a room with more of a formal setting, but I think it looks great anywhere. Take a risk, people!
This room speaks to my love of casual and personal spaces. The saturated hues against bright white and the unexpected pale blue bedding tell me that the person who lives here is fun, sassy and free spirited....Just like me!! The seagrass rug is great for this relaxed space. Everything in this room works for me. Did I mention that orange is my color?
