Let’s Linger...

linger
Schools are closed today because there’s bad weather in the forecast.  Yes, we are getting snow; it’s always a mad frenzy when there is bad weather in the forecast. People go out and buy everything in the supermarket and whatever they think they need so that they can “bunker in.” I, on the other hand, am not so melodramatic. Impending bad weather means I get a chance to linger; linger in my bed OR

better yet this Master Suite where the bed is framed by dangling spindled beads. Did you notice the high definition screen built into the fireplace in the pic above?  Or how about that fur throw that lays seductively across the bed…Forget linger, I would never leave this space!

The talented Annette English was partnered with luxury brand Ferragamo to redesign this Master Suite of the prestigious Esquire Showcase House.  Ferragamo’s fall collection, their tradition of master craftsmanship, layering of rich textures and fabrics was the inspiration used to hone this luxuriously sexy Master suite that is really for a bachelor pad. However, being female, I would be quite at home here; lounging and lingering.

Perfect spot to get some blog reading done while sipping on a cup of coffee(which I’d be careful not to spill on my fur pillow)

How was your weekend? I hope it was a great one and that you were able to capture a few minutes/hours to just linger and be. I’d love to be able to linger in that tub above with the sun’s rays on my skin! Happy Monday everyone! XX

  6. I love the word linger, and meander - both good. The room is scrumptious, like you I would never want to leave. Don't think I can even talk about my closet lust, swoon!

  7. Fabulous - and the new collection is beautiful as well - channelled that whole French 60s vibe. I adore the Lola chair at the desk - I've been eyeing it for a while.

  19. I love to linger, but unfortunately I seem to linger way too long at this computer these days. Like all day and into the evening and then maybe into the morning. But then I get the chance to meet new people like you and your amazing blog. I'm with Cabbage Rose, I have some serious closet envy going on and I could definitely move my little lap top over to that desk and sit on the fur pillow. I'll be back.

  23. Oh yes, people freak out here about the snow! I just want my power and internet and plenty of caffeine and Im fine lol.

  24. I heard about this snow in the South. Being from New England, it's so funny to me that everyone freaks out over a few inches down there. It makes sense, though - there are barely any plows!

  27. Oh GORGEOUS ONE! I thank you for your visit this morning! I just got home from work and it is snowing here too! You know what I am going through; the WAITING!!!! We are having the textured plaster applied tomorrow and the FLOORS ON WEDNESDAY! We paint this weekend and then.....we can start moving things in! Hey, I am a FRENCH BROCANTE lover for interiors, but I am loving the look that you, Shari and Deborah are showing these days...I almost feel as if I need one of those shaggy white fur rugs in my harp studio that is all WHITE! AND I AM ALMOST TEMPTED TO PUT somekind of taxidermy in my new room!!!! I bet you are on pins and needles just dreaming...I cannot WAIT to see your new home dearest.

    Blogging is awesome, isn't it?

    Be well dear one and have FUNNNNNNN! Anita
