I thought I’d start the week off with a powerful punch of color and pattern. I always aim to create ideas for my clients that are fresh, unexpected and haven’t been “over-done”. I took some time to chill out and read a few magazines this weekend, which is a rare luxury for me. It was a gloomy day, so Colleen Bashaw‘s (I shared a shot of Baron’s Cove a few weeks back) design of this chic beach cottage brightened my day. (it belongs to Anthropologie co founder Scott Belair and his wife Bayne) Take a peek at the unique mix of textiles, tiles, finishes and fabrics. They even glued a sisal rug to the wall. (my cat would be in heaven) I personally couldn’t awake to a busy wallpaper but my daughter probably could (bottom two images)! I’m finishing up her room before the holidays!
