What’s not to love...?


about this architecturally elegant room brimming with organic influences and awash with natural light? OR

about this industrial loft space that brings in sexy with the use of dark tones and rhubarb accents? Gotta love it all, right? Smile.  Your input on my post yesterday was so greatly appreciated and I’ll be spending part of the weekend mulling over paint colours and finishes. I will definitely let you know the outcome of that. Have a great weekend everyone!  Stay warm-I think this is the coldest it has ever been in NC since I’ve lived here-brrrrrr!  XX

  16. I see the book shelves in the second pic, I love!

  17. Both are amazing! Moldings in the first picture are beautiful and the built-ins in the second picture along with the loft style is great too!

    I did the loft thing before kids, can't imagine it working well now! :) xoxo

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Happy weekend to you!

  24. I live in an industrial loft, so I can certainly appreciate the space in the second photo, but I'd die happy if I ever lived in the first one!

  30. The room in the first photo is exactly the type I swoon over -- high ceilings with moldings and I absolutely adore chevron wood floors -- this one has my vote :) It doesn't even need furniture and it would look amazing!
    Hope you're enjoying the weekend, my dear!

  32. I've been re-decorating my room this weekend, and your blog and the pictures you post are such an inspiration
    love that space, the sofas in the first picture are amazing
    hope you're having a nice weekend Stacey, and thanks so so much for your sweet comment, you're so lovely

  33. I just love the high ceilings and arched windows.

  34. Definitely shot #1 is my idea of perfection. Loving all the organic influence. My idea of elegance. Pruxxx

  35. So right - what not to love? I like them both! Don't you wish sometimes that your house could be both at once - it really depends on our moods I think! Let's just hope when we redecorate that our mood is of the right one!
    It's finally turned cold here too! Just on Friday. Went from summer to winter during the day!
    Stay warm and many blessings!

  37. Love these images and yes I hear there it is cold in Raleigh. And, my dad sent me a text with a picture of the snow last week! I am heading there in a couple of weeks so hopefully it will warm up a bit.

  47. both of these are just fabulous! I think my favorite of all is the second one, though, as the space is just as enticing as all of the pieces within it... well put together without looking too "planned" if you know what I mean... you know what I mean :) love your taste, always. can't wait to hear more about your place.

    have a wonderful Monday evening*
    xoxo
