A Neutral Mix

Just when I start to thinking that neutral is too safe, I stumble across something that reminds me of how smart it actually is.  This Atlanta home is clearly built on this foundation.  The homeowners have a great art collection that injects colour and energy into some of the gathering rooms.  And you can see that they are entertainment ready! But there are still quiet and calm spaces too.  How about that fabulous kitchen and breakfast room! It's bold but not harsh.  The bedroom is so cozy too.  And take note: sometimes we worry about the windows and walls all lining up perfectly.  The night table is siting in the middle of a wall and a window, and it's the drapery that forms a lush backdrop.

Modern Glamour in Paris

Did you miss me?  I missed me.  After some much needed time to breathe I am back for 2013. I'll be posting backwards for a couple of weeks as well, because I missed so much over the holidays, and I need to fill the gaps for reference this year.  But in the meantime, I am in love with this Paris apartment featured on Elle D├ęcor.  This 19th century home had been vacant since 1963.  Can you imagine stumbling into something like this?  Vacant and hollow, with all the original architecture still in tact.  Danish designer, Klavs Rosenfalck, added some modern affection for a remarkable impact. Not a direction I would have taken, but splendid for exactly that reason.
Hope you are all well.. Looking forward to catching up!
