Altho these are not "my" colors, I think this bedding is so cheery. I LOVE that old salvaged piece above her bed.
I just get a warm, fuzzy feeling when I think of being in a room like this one...the oldness of the brick, the softness of the throws on the leather, the glowing fire, the unexpectedness of the chandelier in an unexpected place, the luscious, old fashioned wall paper....oh, me.....I AM IN LOVE !!
I must admit...I COVET a farm house sink like this!!! This room is so full of charm and personality, it just sets my heart racing 90 miles an hour. I love every thing about it. If I am not mistaken, this kitchen belongs to the same talented, blessed and down-right lucky lady that owns the above living room. To just THINK of starting my day in a space as warm and loving as this kitchen makes me smile.
Tho just a tad too formal for my every day living, I think the colors she used here are just remarkable. That burst of red with the tray of cheese and grapes sits the whole thing off. She is a wonderful photographer as well as a jam-up great decorator. And, again, I find the touches of black seem to ground every thing.
AHHHHH, Penny at LAVENDER HILL STUDIOS, here's another of our red sofas. Doesn't it look fabulous here? I used to say "I don't like anything in pairs" but then, I noticed I liked matching lamps, matching pillows, matching tables....I am pretty sure it was my MOTHER that didn't like things in pairs and you know how we try to like just what our moms like. Then, once we admit that we DO have a mind of our own and that it is ALRIGHT if we like something she didn't like and visa-versa, we can finally start decorating (or whatever) the way WE like. I love the matching lamps and pillows in this picture. THERE, I said it!
Simple and lovely. The only thing I would add if this were my kitchen? RED !! :)
Do ya'll love this kitchen as much as I do? Great Scott...!! And, did you notice the ceiling? RATE MY SPACE has some fabulous kitchens....if I had to choose just one favorite, I would be in trouble because there's too many I like.
I love this bright and cheery dining room. I couldn't use the slipcovers on the chairs like this because there's too many of us sitting down to eat....these pretty covers would end up on the floor or such. But they do look so pretty in the picture. And, I love her red walls and checked curtains.
I just wanted you to see the detailing on the end of her cabinet here. This is something fairly simple to do, not too expensive and boy, does it add personality to the whole room. I saw this and walked around my house for days, looking for ways to add interest to my rooms thru moldings. We did add it to our french doors in the living room and I LOVE IT.
I think this is a precious and interesting bedroom. I have decided I love "different"...something not like everybody else's. I think this room has a ton of character for such a small space. Character thru so many pretty pillows, the style of the bed, and the fact that it isn't DECORATED, as such. I have a bed almost just like this one and am anxious to redo my bedroom...I will use this as a guide when the time comes. I wanted to do it last year but had leg problems which have slowed me down MUCH more than I want them to. It'll get better tho and then, look out...I have tons of projects waiting in the wings.
Have fun today decorating a little area of your space!!
