Totally Inspiring Room

Not sure where I found this… surfing as usual. What do I like about it? The soft, feminine, comfortable vibe. Nice touches include: the pastel violet lamp on the nightstand, the old world settee, the oversized floral above the bed, and the sweet, drapey shade on the window. Yeah, soft and lovely. Definitely something to aspire to. Though if I’m honest, I know I’d have to throw some edge in there somewhere… like a high gloss dresser in dark olive green. Right now olive green and pale violey with gold accents is totally rocking my boat… but I digress!

Check you tomorrow, peoples, when I reveal my painted lamps (sans shades). Until then!

Totally Inspiring Room

Pale, soft, serene… The living room of actress Keri Russell and her husband, Shane Deary, is all of those things. The room is part of a whole house renovation that saw the couple doing a lot of hands on work themselves. I think the ‘labor of love’ aspect shows through brilliantly. The overall vibe is one of easy, comforting elegance. Definitely a totally inspiring room!

On a side note: the overall look here reminds me strongly of Andrew Corrie and Harriet Maxwell-McDonald’s aesthetic at Ochre and Canvas and in their own home. The one difference is that the Russell/Deary house’s wood is a dark, rich color and the Corrie/Maxwell-McDonald look is usually pale, bleached or light woods and more aged metal. Very similar though.

Happy Tuesday, everyone! What’s inspiring you today?
