Picture Perfect – Room(s) of the week!

I don’t tend you use my blog as a personal sounding board but if you’re a fellow blogger you may agree that blogging does provide a “sort of” therapeutic escape. This has been one of the worst weeks of my entire life. It’s amazing how some things in life are truly out of our control. It was supposed to be a happy week, my birthday is today, but the last thing I am going to do is celebrate. This “picture perfect” post is a short “virtual home tour”, instead of one room.  I needed to post these warm, comforting images today.
 I truly want this blog to be a place that you all come for inspiration. I hope you enjoy my selected images and thank you for being so great. I always appreciate your comments. This blog wouldn’t exist without YOU! So do bear with me if my posts are a little lean over the next few weeks. xx.

Picture Perfect – Room{s} of the week

I just began a new project for an existing client. They live in a large old house. I’m excited to move the job downstairs to the living room and foyer.  The upstairs bedrooms are almost {key word being almost}  finished. Their style is what I refer to as “updated traditional”.  I am going to finish up their concept board this week but I’ve already shopped the design center for most of the fabrics. I’ve been drawn to traditional interiors with a modern edge lately. I think they feel lived in, as though they have evolved over time but still fresh. The two rooms above by Ashley Whittaker fall perfectly into this style. I love the mix of pattern, texture, color and objects in these adjoining rooms.  They each have an identity of their own but work so well together. Creating a cohesive whole,  is the key to “great” design!
Have a good day!! I have something exciting to share with you tomorrow, so do check back. I think you’ll like it! – Julie

Picture Perfect – Room of the Week

I’m drawn to this room right now for so many reasons. The warm colors, the mix of materials, the array of perfectly placed furnishings, the billy baldwin slipper chair {a personal favorite}. It’s layered, warm and beautiful! I love it. I would add this wonderful painting by Vanessa Briggs to the opposite side of the room. The open space above the sofa is needed!
