{a charming mix of things}



. . . shall always adore white, light-flooded rooms for the understated beauty and feeling of serenity they invoke, but truth be told, am a maximalist at heart, bits of boarding passes and foreign currency tucked away in pretty boxes, every issue of every magazine overflowing from shelves and coffee tables and so, fell completely for everything about these rooms -- the charming mix of tray and glass tables, warm and rich orange, pink & turquoise intermingled with soft sable and flowers everywhere, walls of artwork and paneling and molding, luxurious ruching, tassels and pleats -- everything working perfectly together as if part of a beautiful and unwinding story . . .

I am also a minimalist - but like most, there is secret place within my heart craving the warmth of artful abundance. This is the perfect example of the dream...

Stunning! I love the use of so much color!

Sarah Klassen [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

We are two peas in a pod :)

This is beautiful...there are so many lovely details...the eclectic frames that hold sweet artwork, the panelling and picture-framing, the magenta sofa, droopy roses, and wall sconces...I really adore it all. Thank you for such a beautiful, ornate post!

Ornate done in a more European way (I loath stuffy, traditional American decor, truth be told) is so beautiful and reminds me of home...

*Thank you for your kind comments.
I wish you a wonferful day...

xo, Sarah
