Totally Inspiring Room

Today’s room is from the latest issue of Traditional Home. It is the study off of the master bedroom of designers Roger Higgins and Ann Shipp.

I love how serene this room is: the pale and neutral colors, the comfy looking sofa, the tone on tone walls and trim… So calming! See more of the designer’s amazing house at Traditional Home.

I’m going to see more of my room rearranging project. I’m at the part where you sort through all the junk you found while doing the moving furniture around phase. Not the fun bit… but, it has to be done! I hope you’re all having an amazing Tuesday. Not too cold and nippy but a nice sunny fall day like we’re having here in Charlotte. Catch you tomorrow. 🙂

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?

Pastels

It is gloomy and rainy here. I guess that’s those spring showers everyone talks about. I think I understand now hy springtime is the time when everyone breaks out the pastels – it’s a cool way to transition back into color after winters soft neutrals. So, for this Monday – pastel inspiration. Hope you all have a great week!
