I think you get to a place where you know what you like and if you pick good pieces along the way, new fabrics or simply rearranging can mix things up and give you a new look. People ask me all the time if I am constantly redecorating my own house. The truth is, I really don't. I have had the same chairs and sofa for the last several years and just recently recovered my club chairs. I love my Oriental rug because it has so many colors and it holds up to everything. It has made it through three kids, spilled wine (kids drive you to drink) and a three year old that wanted to paint her nails.Mixing in patterns in unexpected places are always a fun way to ad texture. This upholstered table with railheads serves as the perfect console for keepsakes, art and lighting.
These chairs were our first dining chairs (14 years ago). I love the lines of them and recently had them recovered in a cream linen I added a band of fabric for interest right down the center.
Fresh flowers are a must whenever you can...
Our living room gets so much light and I love the airy feeling. In rooms with vaulted or high ceilings, it can be challenging to make it feel cozy.
I love the use of a lucite table in a space because everything you add to it pops.
My book collection is growing and gives me a daily dose of inspiration.
In other news...
