I have a picture folder in my files that is simply titled "Rooms I like". Usually, I am a little more clever than that.
This room was created by Dallas designer, Neal Stewart, and was featured in D-Home magazine.
Why do I like this space?
I love the eclectic mix of furniture styles...french provencial chair, modern leather club chairs, mid-century coffee table...great mix.
I never thought I'd say this again, but I'm really loving this gilded gold Giacometti lamp. I think I finally got rid of all my gilded gold about this time last year. I guess I'm going to have to hit the GoodWill and see if I can get it all back!
The lamp's got a great traditional shape, and it's pumped up with the gold gilded finish...very chic and very 2010!
The linen panels are so complimentary to the putty gray of the walls. The wall color is the backup singer to the Chinese red chest and the convex mirrors. I love the way the mirrors brighten up the wall and fill up the space between the window panels.
So tell me you expected a VERY large scale nude over the sofa in this room! I think its a beautiful painting, but I'd hate to have to explain it to the grandkids. I'm sure there would be some giggles.
No room is complete without books, if you ask me. I like the casual way these are stacked, like they are opened and referred to on a regular basis.
I think this is a very livable room, and I like it!
