This was one of those pictures that stopped me in my tracks. Designed by Jessica Buckley Interiors, the intensity and depth of the blue grasscloth wallpaper is captivating. It’s called Blueberry by Phillip Jefferies. I’m making note of this for my next house. Next to the couch, that’s the best wow factor of the room. But then, I’m biased because I’m drawn to everything blue. I do have to say though that I love how the soft vintage pinks of the chairs adds a calm elegance to the room and adds a sense of history right next to the fireplace. The rug is another key factor to this room. While it’s still strong in colors, it’s not saturated like the walls and couch yet it still manages to add color and fun to the room and tie it all in. The glass coffee table keeps it light and its gold frame adds glamor (You can never go wrong with glamor. After all, we all want a little bit of it in our life. This is where we can get it.)
When you hear that someone lives in a loft, it conjures all kinds of images in your head. Usually it’s industrial, but the mood can swing in so many directions from light and airy to dark and moody. A loft often conjures a romantic atmosphere. I think a lot of people will “ooh” and “aah” over the idea of it, which I did when I stumbled upon this image while reading the Desire to Inspire (one of my favorites) blog.
It’s been way too long since I’ve been back on here, blogging. Sorry about the disappearance, like MIA kind of disappearance. So much for keeping my New Year’s intentions of blogging twice a week. I’m to figure out a routine to get back on track. It’s a little tricky when I’m trying to housebreak Kali. Keeping her in the living room is best where as she has way too much stuff she could get into in the office. The best solution? Getting a laptop. That’s some portable stuff right there. However, a few things on WordPress looks different, so I’m going to need to get my husband to give me a little tutorial.
Everything Ken Fulk does exudes drama with hints of masculinity and timeless classics and this Montana home is no exception. There is so much texture everywhere that you just want to touch it: the stone fireplace, the leather chairs, the fur stool, the wooden coffee table, and if at all possible, those round pendants. And those windows? With what appears to be snow on those trees outside? More eye candy galore!
Katie Rosenfeld is my interior design animal spirit. She injects fun patterns and colors in to every single one of her design projects, which is something that I aspire to do. A lot of her designs have a global flair, particularly when she infuses a lot of Asian influence and some chinoiserie.
