This image sealed the deal..

I'm sure you've seen this recent image from Elle Decor or via blog-land..I LOVE this dining room and have been contemplating what I want to do for dining chairs in my home. Louis XVI style dining chairs have been all the rage for a few years now, but I'm still drawn to their classic lines and clean style, they virtually work with almost any "look"..this photo pretty much sealed the deal for me last week. {all of these photos did actually} Ballard Design has a similar style available in a white finish, for a great price. I'm going to cover them in a parrot green linen {see color below}! Another decision off my list - check.

How can you forget this fabulous shoot of Katie Lee Joel's house in Domino? Love the look and the chairs of course.

Pillow Talk

Okay, so I'm NOT into thematic, predictable rooms but I do love and live near the ocean {and so do a number of my clients} so adding a beach inspired accessory here and there is a good thing. If you're in the market for beautiful pillows then you have to check out Outer Banks Trading Group, they have an amazing selection of sea worthy pillows, along with a number of other home related items. Here's a sample of their goodies..

they also have a number of other great pillows..I still love bamboo and lattice accents {especially during the summer - I can't resist kelly green} + there's even a sail cloth bed for fido!

I could move right in..

Honestly, I'm with Paloma from La Dolce Vita on this one. This entire home {bedroom snapshot} is AMAZING {yes my favorite word}, just beautiful. In fact all the work on Massucco, Warner and Miller's website is pretty damn fabulous.

See Paloma's site for photos of the entire home in this month's copy of Traditional Home.

A little country living....

I'm loving the relaxed, organic quality of designer Jill Sharp Brinson's work right now. She's a brilliant stylist, interior and product designer. For more information and photos check out her website here!

How amazing are the windows in this kitchen?
