1. Today I have been doing a little online shopping for a client- trying to find an Asian rug with shades of blue and white in it. These were my four favorites of the day. 2.
I thought Asian and blue would be easier to find together than they were. Anyone seen any that you can add? 3.
What do you think? Have a favorite?- I numbered them for an easy vote. The headboard is tufted upholstered blue- bedding is yet to be selected- so I can make things come together there. We are using these cool stools from Wisteria.
I was intrigued by this month's House Beautiful Kitchen of the Month. I wanted to know what you thought. It is a French look with quite a formal feel and a lot of blue and white.
Clearly no expense was spared. What I want to know is- is it just too much? Is it over-decorated? The mouldings, the tile, the ceiling, the sink, the leaded glass...
Is there any restraint shown? The tile work on the double refrigerators...
Not one scene on the tile- but many...
OK- here I'll say it's beautiful- wouldn't change a thing.
This is a good shot above that shows what I mean about the mouldings and tile work and leaded glass. When there is so much going on- it is hard for the eye to know where to go. I feel like a beautiful room is a journey. The eye is drawn to the focal point- and there is then a nice rhythm around the room. I feel like there are multiple focal points here.
I am liking the butcher block!
What do you think? Anyone love it? Wish it were theirs? Anyone agree with me that the tile work and moldings needed to exercise the less is more approach? What do you think?
