Stylish and Colorful Interiors

The temperatures here in Maryland might be dropping, but the sun is shining!  Even though I tend to go for more subdued colors in my home's palette, I do like to interject little pops of color to add some cheer and energy to the room.

This room is very traditional in forms and lines, but gets cheeky with color.

Colorful doesn't have to be bohemian or eclectic, it can also be crisp and tailored.  This is a room in Ham Yard Hotel in London

Do you go for color in your home?

America the Beautiful

Whether you're disappointed like I am today, or happy you were heard, I thought it was a good day to share something all of us have in common in America.  This beautiful, beautiful land.

Blue Ridge Mountains - one of my favorite places.

Inspiring home offices in darker hues

Depending on the amount of natural light, your ceiling height, and finish - you can make a dark home office an enlightening place to be productive!

The square built-in cubbies in this home office are interesting, and the mirrored desk and pink chair keep the dark gray in balance.

What do you think of painting a home office, den, or study in a darker color?

Warm and rustic spaces to inspire you to cozy up for winter

Well, we're expectinh highs of 78 here in Maryland, but we all know winter will be here in the blink of an eye.  Whether you're a fan of winter or not, these rustic cozy interiors will make evenings indoor a toasty treat.

A glamorous modern chandelier and sleek upholstered headboard nicely contrast the dark wook paneling.

A really cool live edge wood headboard, and wool and fur textures make this the perfect cold weather retreat.

This ceiling has so much vision.  I never would have thought to panel the ceiling in wood planks! All of the textures in the bedding are nice too!

Happy Halloween! Our favorite spooky, silly, and charming Halloween decorating ideas.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween!

How pretty is this entrance with the pumpkins and cornstalks?
The crows add a nod to the spooky season.

I love carved pumpkins I just never have the time.  These pumpkins as found on Southern Living are more sweet than scary.
I like the subtlety of this one.  The mirror and the crows makes me think of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell.

How clever is this coat rack of witches hats and brooms?

Love the wreath, the little black cameo pumpkins, and the book cover.

What is your favorite Halloween decor?
