Living With Great Style

snuggled down . . .

When I spotted this beautiful room over on Miss Erin’s blog, it immediately had me daydreaming of going home to curl up in a comfty outfit with my luscious faux fur blanket accompanied by a cup of Mariage tea and my brand new book. With the hectic week I’ve had I thought that instead of going home to work, it is a perfect night to keep my computer in my work bag and check out for a night. Nite, nite lovelies – I’ll be back tomorrow!

blue hues

Ever since we accidentally painted our apartment a grayish/blue I’ve been so attracted to homes that have blue hues. A touch of blue does wonders to a home – it makes it feel like a peaceful oasis. This living room in particular has my heart beating a little bit faster or could it be the beautiful hardwood floors? Both are incredible.

real living

Thanks to the lovely Holly of decor8, I was instantly filled with inspiration as I devoured each home featured on Freunde von Freunden. It’s a great interiors/lifestyle site based in Berlin. It’s nice to see homes that are photographed as though they didn’t get cleaned up. Freunde von Freunden is sort of similar to The Selby, but everyone that FvF photographs is working in a creative profession.

This image in particular kept coming up in my mind – I kept going back to it. I love the combination of the mirror with the peacock feathers and then the glass globes, not to mention that killer side lamp. Be sure to check it out, you’re bound to find several homes you will fall head over heels in love with.

perfect balance

In this month’s issue of Covet Garden it features photographer Tracy Schumate’s home. It’s just the right balance of a rustic country house and a scandinavian home. There are definitely a few things I’m going to steal from Tracy’s home – the giant chalkboard (it’s amazing – need to find one stat!) and the fabulous calendar.
