Hope you all had a great weekend! Here are a few random lovely decorating ideas, along with a few words of wisdom sprinkled in between, for whatever it's worth...:)
Something about this room really calls to me. At first I assumed it was a kitchen but it's more of a wet bar area. I adore the fresh lines, marble counter tops, incredible light and those great dark windows that open into the next room for serving. What an awesome space!
How gorgeous is the detailing around that front door, not to mention the iron work? I should have included this in my window boxes post but I just came across it. Sooo classy!
If/when we ever build, shelving like this will be next to the master bathroom tub for towels, apothecary jars filled with beautiful soaps, lotions and potions in pretty baskets and a few lazy reads...I like the addition of a few personal photos too.
I think I might faint if I were house hunting (somewhere in Europe?) and walked into this apartment. SO much potential here!
Books, books and more books.
Speaking of books, I just finished reading Unbroken. Have you read it? It's a heartbreaking read, but so inspirational and educational.
It's the best book I've read in a while and would love to find something good to follow it. Any good book tips out there?
AMAZING windows. Love the greek key rug too!
This room as so much style!
A trip to Buenos Aires is rattling around in my mind...doesn't this rustic architecture look appealing?
MUST do this. I love it every time I see it! These shelves are particularly nicely styled, I thought...
A fun chair with traditional lines that throws all of that to the wind with the punch of color and refreshing pattern.
Occasionally I watch YouTube videos -- mostly because I am far too impatient to put up with commercials anymore! Recently I came across this discussion with Jada Pinkett Smith, talking about motherhood, marriage and a career. You can find it here.
One thing resonated with me: she said every morning she meditates, deciding what each person in her family needs from her that day, including what she needs for HERSELF. Regardless of what you think of her, I thought it was a great way to make sure you channel your daily energies in the directions that are the most important.
(Also,is it just me or is she getting more beautiful with age??)
Wouldn't you love to blog here? I think the computer would have to have am embossed leather cover to fit in...
Just because it's pretty. :)
I hope you enjoyed this random post!
Thanks so much for reading.
