A Perfect Mix




This house, which was featured in Elle Decor October 2006, is one of my all time favourite houses. I love the mix of furniture styles, fabrics and textiles and the collections of "things" displayed oh-so "perfectly" throughout the house. I also adore the all-white back drop (floors, walls, ceiling) which sets the perfect scene for such a beautiful collection of things.

Ooo, that really is beautiful! I dream of having white slipcovered furniture, but not until the little ones are out the house ;-)

I just love this home! It really is the perfect mix of cozy elements...like that suzani sofa, framed map, and the rustic table in the kitchen. Great post!

i love those shelves. so art directed yet, not obvious. and i've recently been loving collections of old globes.

all of this is wonderful the suzani touches the loose comfortable feel while keeping worldly and sophisticated.

thanks for sharing!

I'm such a fan of white slip covered furniture beki even with little ones as you can take the covers off and have them cleaned so easily!!
