LIVING ROOM PERFECTION

This space is going straight to the top of my inspiration file. I had a longer post planned, but when I came across this image I tossed that out the door and thought "done and done." This room sums up all the thing I love right now...and probably always will.

It's the perfect balance of contemporary and aged. For starters that stone colored wall, linear sofa, and upholstered coffee table give it that up to date feel and airiness. Matched with the beautiful darker leathers, intricate woodwork, and antiqued gold frames, it's simultaneously nostalgic and rich. In short, full of depth and layers and what could be better than that?

I love this too, and pretty much try to capture the same 'feel' in my home. xx

So beautiful - this makes me think of one of those old country houses. Or what I would do to the old house in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. I love the mix of wood and classic whites and creams :)

This is a very elegant room, I really love all the details. Personally I would add a punch of color here and there but I think this is incredible tasteful...

Absolute perfection. Stopped me dead. Completely organic, uncontrived; yet with restraint and balance. And just so damn pretty. LUHV.

Love it; I've been in search of this gray. Has anyone found one they like that works with warm neutrals?
