THE PERFECT PLACE

You guys, I'm going crazy (in a good way!) with decorating ideas for the new place! I suppose that's how you know you've found your passion...when color swatches, fabrics samples, layout plans, and paint colors get you more excited than anything else. So this here is my latest and greatest find when it comes to my apartment inspiration file:

It's perfect in every way! From the gray walls (I'm currently leaning towards Benjamin Moore's Chelsea Gray for the living room), to the arched windows, to the leather poufs, to the subtle graphic on the rug - it all comes together in such a warm and inviting way. Oh and we can't forget the desk - a sweet little moment in this space. Perched on a diagonal (brilliant!), a quiet little writing corner from which to draft handwritten letters and fill up a journal feels like an old fashion luxury I'd happily welcome into my life!

Ooh! Yes I love this room. I love how the gray seems to have a purple undertone. And the subtlety of the print on the rug is perfect. I agree with you...when floor plans, textiles and color swatches excite you most, you know you've found your calling! I've been drawing floor plans on kids menu's since I can remember so I think I'm in the right field (: Can't wait to see the new place.

I love that the arches in the desk and coffee table mimmick the arches in the windows. Brilliant.

@Gina! So glad you picked up on that. That's what makes a room sing...the details!
