Junior League of Boston ShowHouse. The Mother-In-Law Suite.

Or Mother's Suite, Or Guestroom ... or MASTER!  I love this room by my friend Kelly Rogers.  I hope you are enjoying the recap of the Junior League of Boston Designer ShowHouse.  Emily O'Brien and 3 Olives and a Twist and I loved the house and it is truly such fun to come back and really look deep into each room.  The details that are sometimes missed when you are just "passing through".  It's all about the details ... right?

Kelly used this stunning fabric from Robert Allen on her focal wall. I love that it has such a beautiful deep fuchsia, yet the room does not feel overwhelmingly Pink.  The Custom headboard, Kelly designed herself with beautiful trim that carries all the way around the bed onto the bedskirt.  Leontine Linens.  Need I say more?  I know nice linens are expensive and sometimes hard for people to understand.  But just look at what you get!  The brass light fixture from Worlds Away adds a warm tone and a little whimsy! 

Robert Allen fabric was also used on the window treatments.  One of my favorite things in this space is the way Kelly featured the same fabric on all three pillows, yet in 3 different colorways. Brilliant! And of course, the Tini Table from Oomph ... will always be one of my favorite accessory tables. 

Yes, this Suite is a keeper and I would say would win over any Mother OR Mother-in-Law!

TheShowHouse is open through June 5 ... there is still plenty of time to be inspired in person!

Swanky. Gray.

It's official ... If it is not going to be Spring outside ... I am bringing it inside. STAT!

I shared that I am working on an Antique Federal Colonial and the excitement of this paired with my love of what Robert Allen is doing with florals ... I have my dining room inspiration.

Sherwin Williams SWANKY GRAY (don't let it fool you ... it's kind of PURPLE!) is going to help me make this happen.  Everyone needs a little dining room SWANK!

The floors of the dining room are painted ... they are the happiest color of green ... kind of hard to tell from my iPhone photo ... but I think you can get the feeling.  

Because it is an older home, the dining room has low ceilings with great wainscoting, so the SWANK will only be in small spaces just to help this little jewel of a space sparkle.  I am pushing for gloss ... Wish me luck!!

Floral Revolution.

What a week!  New England got hit hard with the Snowpocolypse.  We had about 28" at our house so it was a shoveling few days ... but we did NOT lose electricity.  What a game changer that would have been.  We took these "free pass" days and cooked, snow shoed and painted. I absolutely loved it!

All the cold and white out my window however has me dreaming of Spring Color and I am majorly crushing on Robert Allen's new Botanical Color Collection.

This was their display at the Paris Maison & Objet Show.  I could crawl up in that "bedroom" and never want to leave.  Even with the green astroturf!!

Have a wonderful weekend sweet friends ... enjoy the snow, the sun, whatever the weather world is giving you!
