I’m timid about admitting that I am madly in love with this sitting room. Madly. In. Love.
Why am I timid about it? I don’t know, probably because I couldn’t find a room that would interest my husband less than this one. He’d prefer a cozy, woodland cabin. Something more Hobbit Shire than modern high-rise.
I think there’s a part of me that’s also embarrassed to admit I love this kind of stark elegance. What’s trendy these days is layers upon layers of pattern and paint, and this room is stripped of that modish DIY-look that has everyone drooling.
But this is more my speed.
Reasons to love:
Well, I’ve already told you about my obsession with teal velvet furniture, tall vertical windows, and an all-white space, but there’s also the singular, statement-making painting (which, no doubt, inspired the velvet chairs) and the alluring mix of masculine and feminine (hard lines paired with soft fabrics, for example) that are absolute necessities for my dream home.
Except, realistically, I will have to make compromises.
So maybe my dream home will include a cozy, woodland outhouse somewhere in the back, back, back yard.
