House Beautiful

Dying over these rooms... this last issue of House Beautiful is good...really, really good.

I stopped by Ikea this last weekend to get my usual napkins, hangers, and Sweedish sparkling pear juice (delish) and saw this mobile... I'm not sure what I think of it yet but it reminds me that Ikea is a great place to start out when you're on a budget. What an impact this would make in a children's room- all the shapes and patterns on the ceiling and wall!

Gotta have it

I am dying to paint my office walls a dark, rich color. Maybe this one- Drawing Room Blue by Farrow and Ball.

These fabrics would really set it off. (If you haven't noticed- I'm obsessed with a blue/green color combination :))

Or do I keep it neutral and go for a smoky grey? Railings by Farrow and Ball
This is the constant battle when decorating my own home - I love a pop of bold color and pattern in a room but also love the tone on tone, subtle look. I am drawn to both, love both and am working on finding a combination of the two in my home that suits me.

Here's some lovely inspiration...
