Happy New Year!
I know I have been M.I.A. for a while, and I have missed quite a few regular Sunday and Wednesday postings, and I can't help to think if some of the reason is I have been in transition with my home. I have been redoing, and redoing, and redoing.
As I find myself looking at my changes, I am shying away from all the the fancy, the fru-fru, and "cottage" style. And as many of my clients, friends, and relatives have been asking "WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?"
Well with a house of all boys-and a man, I find that our home is taking on a very monochromatic color scheme,
with dark greys, black, naturals, and pops of white
(such as the linens),
and the very large sectional.
Don't get me wrong I still love antique, and vintage finds, but I am attracted to the "Less is More" philosophy.
And I still love a gorgeous primitive piece, here and there.
My inspirational magazines these days are
Veranda, Elle Decor, & Architectural Digest.
One designer I have admired for a very long time, is Mary McDonald. She has a beautiful book
"Allure of Style",
that you could just sit and read for many hours at a time.
So I just wanted to share some of my favorite
photos of Mary McDonald's designs.
Please enjoy I will be back soon!
