Totally Inspiring Room

Design by Colette van den Thillart in House & Home.

I haven’t put a room up in a while… I’ve seen things that I thought were nice but nothing that was knocking me out. I saw this while surfing Pinterest and I thought it was something I wouldn’t mind putting up here to share with you.

I love the bold color on the wall, the zing of green in the faux bois rug, the sinuous and glossy white tables, and the overall calm of the aesthetic. I love the air of the unexpected that is found in every part of the room. This is one for the inspiration file!

Hope all is well in your world! See you next time. 🙂

This scan is from the September 2011 issue of House & Home magazine (still not sure when or why the ‘Canadian’ part of the title went missing… but I digress). It’s from a weekend decorating article that gives some sweet ideas for taking your interiors up a notch with DIY projects.

The lovely bedroom above is the final page of the feature. The editors suggest “imperfect paint”. I just love the colors and textures. God help me if I’m ever able to find out who makes the fabric/duvet cover on the bed. Those painterly stripes are gorgeous. I really like the lamp to the left of the bed as well (another project from the article) and the Farrow & Ball paint in ‘Setting Plaster’. Plus, who wouldn’t want an ebonized book case with antique gilt edging and loads of vintages books on it as a headboard?

Happy Tuesday! I hope this inspires you as much as it did me!
