Oh my gosh this weekend couldn’t come fast enough! I am so exhausted and looking forward to some R&R. For me that usually means curling up (hopefully with a good new decor mag) and enjoying the sunlight in my house. I tend to leave and return home in the dark these days so sunlight in my living room is a novelty!
Here’s a pretty detail of a gorgeous vintage wing chair in my den/office.
This chair was an AMAZING find two summers ago in Maine. The original chintz floral fabric is perfectly faded and tattered (cuts the sweetness in my opinion) and I love the tarnished nail head detail. I also LOVE love LOVE the painted ball and claw feet – so regal but in a shabby time-worn way. The whole thing sits on jute carpet with a ‘sea glass’ painted wall and apple green slub silk drape.
Aren’t those colours lovely? The silk drapes actually came with the house and I decided to keep ’em. The sea glass wall was an attempt to create a slightly quirky palette so things didn’t match too perfectly.
And piled on top? Lots and lots of magazine inspiration. The old oil painting I bought for a song on Queen West in Toronto a couple of years back. I just love the muddy green colour and gold frame. And the distressed, mellow old marble has such soul.
Just a few of the beautiful details I’ll be enjoying at home after a long hard week of work. Hope your weekend proves to be just as inspirational!
