hand painted walls

Hand painted wallpaper is one of the most special ways to decorate a home.  We do not get to use hand painted wallpaper in our client’s homes very often, but when we do it’s very exciting and always turns out absolutely gorgeous.  I love the look, but it is usually a little too formal for my taste… But it doesn’t always have to be formal.  You will see in these pictures that some of these rooms maintain a casual, relaxed look despite the expensive/unique wall treatments.

Absolutely love this hand painted fish wallpaper.  Talk about casual!  Such a unique take on hand painted wallpaper.  It would be so pretty in a lake house.

Seagrass, Sisal

…and Jute!  I love natural fiber rugs.  I promise they work in both formal and informal interiors.  And here is proof:

I can’t even tell you how many clients of ours have seagrass/sisal runners on their stairs… Love that look.  Seagrass is especially nice on the stairs if you have small children. [image via Benjamin Dhong]

Do you have a massive living room and don’t want to pay 9485967584 dollars for a huge oriental rug?  Go with seagrass!  [Orlando Diaz-Azcuy via House Beautiful]

 

 

 

 

Designers like Phoebe Howard and Suzanne Kasler are big fans of natural fiber rugs.

 

 One of my favorite ways to use a seagrass rug: layering.  If you have a nice/oriental/antique rug but it’s too small for a space – layer it over a larger seagrass/sisal rug.  Problem solved.

One of my favorite natural fiber rugs, which I just discovered the other day, is Serena & Lily’s Chevron Jute/Hemp rug

Takes my breath away

There are some pictures of interiors that I come across that literally take my breath away.  I’m weird, I know.  After my breath is taken from me, sometimes I say out loud “Oh mah gah”… and then I look at it for several minutes without looking away. 

Anwayyyy, now that you officially think I’m a weirdo…

I’ve shared a lot of these pictures in previous posts but I think these particular pictures deserve posts of their own.  Here is one of those pictures of a vignette designed by Katie Ridder.  The artwork alone takes my breath away.  A lot of you have probably seen this picture on pinterest or other blogs, but I just wanted to make sure everyone knew how much I love it!  :)

Twins!

Twin beds!

I love the way twin beds look in a room.  Symmetry is so captivating to me.  A room can be gorgeous, but if it is symmetical it can be twice as gorgeous.  Twin beds create symmetry, obviously.

I think the words at the bottom of the picture above pretty much sum it up the beauty of twin beds:

“Double the fun.  Symmetrical mirror image arrangements of furniture and accessories speak with quiet authority and keep you on the clean, serene path.”

If only I knew what magazine that was…  Damn Pinterest!

Lotus Love

I think I’ve mentioned in a previous post that my new obsession is this Galbraith & Paul wallpaper:

 

It is called “Lotus” and the colorway pictured above is Aqua.  I adore it.  But this pattern is not the only chic pattern that I love from Galbraith & Paul…

 

 

“Birds” is adorable too!!  And these patterns come in multiple colorways!    Color Sage is pictured above and color Ocean is below – and that’s just 2 of the 10 colorways.  How cute?!  How could I ever choose????

 

 

Did I mention that they come in fabrics too?  Ugh, I better start saving $$$!!!  Or else I’ll just drool over these pictures until something else steals my heart away.

Yep, that is Lotus in Pink and Orange (“Tangerine”).  Now where do I get the dress to match? 

 

How perfect are these colors for summer???
