Down - Sizing ...

I hate dark paneled walls.  Period.
But I love this room.  

Let's break it down.

Amazing Art ... which gives light, life and flow.
Fantastic Chandelier.  A little Glitz for me.
Just a little bit cluttered.  You know I like some clutter.
Layered Oriental Rugs.  I think you aren't supposed to say Oriental.  But I like them.
Traditional ... another word for Classic ... Sofa.


I could drink a glass of tea in here ... or a glass of wine.  preferably, a glass of wine.  
But I'd do tea.

It has books (maybe it is a fake book table) but I like this.

There is a green plant coming out of the fireplace.  
And the blue and white bowl on the glass table.

Perfect for me.

As we "evolve" we learn more about ourselves.  I like small spaces.
I want to be cocooned when it gets dark at 4:30 in December.
I feel my cocoon beckoning me here.
What about you?  Do you like small, cozy rooms?

Loving the Simplicity 

of this Window Treatment.
Relaxed Roman over Standard Roman

Softer than a cornice, but structured just the same.
Soft. Warm. Perfection.

Loving the Simplicity
of the narrow cabinets, with small sinks.  
Wonderful use of a tight space. 
It's really all one needs.

Note to Self.
Simple does NOT mean Boring.

Purple and Pink ... can you do it?

As you know I am working on Mandy's Bedroom ... a teenage girl that still loves purple ... well, don't even think she is talking about the Bubble Gum Pink or Barney Purple of most three and four year olds' dreams ... Pink has grown up ... perhaps it has always been grown up and I am just seeing it for the first time and Purple has taken on an extremely sophisticated attitude!

Check these beautiful pink and purple hues ...

And even the most manly of men will not be threatened by these purple hues ... 

I know, it is just Thursday ... but have a wonderful weekend!  My cousin and her husband are coming up to visit New England!  Don and I will be enjoying all the sight seeing and mostly their company!  Have a wonderful weekend and see you on Monday!
