From the Favorites File

Love the mix of traditional (wing chair, side chair, art, books) and modern (shelving, sofa, coffee table).

What is it about this room?  It's kind of preppy, yet very timeless.  I think this would be a wonderful inspiration picture for a guest room.

Again, love the mix of traditional and modern!

Fun fabric folded over the headboard... I could do that!

The pillow is the perfect finishing touch.  Also, notice the design on the wall in the background of what I'm assuming is an entryway... could that be floral tape or some color of Japanese masking tape?  Check out this post from Jenny at Little Green Notebook!  And check out Michael's blog today for more pictures of this apartment!

I like how the huge mirror balances out the library bookcase.  And how there are three different shades of blue... See?  Who cares if it doesn't match?  Obviously not Michael Penney.

Love the ribbon detail...

First of all, I'm pretty sure that's an Ikea bed.  Gotta love budget-friendly designers!  Secondly, how close are those fan blades to the bed posts?  I would be more than a little unconfortable with the current situation.  And thirdly, I want that starburst mirror.

  1. I see I'm not the only one who keeps a file. I think I have an inspiration file for every room in my home. Now, if only I started a few projects based on those files.


What'cha thinkin?
