Laid Back Elegance

I've been coming back to these images for a few weeks now. Something about them is just so simple and sweet. From the color palette of navy with pops of purple, to the whitewashed walls and ceiling, there's not an inch of this space I don't love.
More than anything though I'm completely taken by the seating. An English roll arm sofa, a curvy wood framed chair, and a boxy chaise lounge - all so different but working in perfect harmony in this room.

Then, there's that beautiful sunlight streaming in...if only we could bottle up the warm glow of sunbeams and make them part of every room.

Have a lovely weekend my dears. I'll be bunkered up in LA working day and night....issue 2 is just around the corner!

xo,
Crystal

Love this room also - great how all the seemingly disparate pieces work together. Have always loved somewhat formal furniture in a rustic room - this reminds me a bit of Deborah Needleman's beautiful loft.

I love it too, I keep coming back to the color of the bookcases.

YES please! I am loving the 2 seated navy sofa! It looks so plush and comfy! I need to *move* soon to get my navy sofa!

I love the red trunks on the right and left side of the sofa. They don't jump out at you, but I think that's part of what intrigues me about them.

I love the warm and cozy feel of the place. The navy sofa is a jewel in there.
