{décor inspiration : relaxed & refined in normandy}



. . . first came across this centuries-old home in normandy last november, and immediately fell head over heels, and so, was utterly thrilled to happen across it again, in the current issue of veranda; and while one is impossibly drawn to the allure of the leopard silk velvet canapé, there are still a myriad of beautiful things to captivate -- the floors, [always, the floors], the gilded picture frames and cashmere throws, the antique bergères in stroheim suede, the grand chandeliers and palest shades of gray, and most of all, that perfect mix of relaxed & refined . . .

gorgeous, and what a difference pink roses make in softening up the look of the place from one shoot to the next.

Often times I find myself drawn to a photo of a room and upon examination find that it's really (mostly) the flowers that "make" the room.....

I love this! This is a style I love, it's so romantic and opulent, but like you mentioned, still relaxed. Beautiful.

Living in this space would be an absolute dream. The leopard paired with those blue-grey walls could not be more perfect. xo, Jolie

That is one gorgeous and stunning home.... I can but dream of living somewhere like that! Anywhere that has that many shelves for books is alright by me!

Linda. :)
