Paul Raeside

I thought this photograph taken by Paul Raeside was just too lovely not to share. The lighting is just perfect! Love the striped fabric on the ottoman. What do you guys think about the ship?? I know I've seen them in a few other rooms...they definitely add a funky touch!

It seems to work here, and the photo is just gorgeous. I myself would get tired of such a fixture quite fast...heck, I'm ready to redo a room after just a year or so, so who am I to speak!

I am with you, loving the ottoman. And those great chairs. I am not too keen on that ship. At least not in this room. Maybe in an office or a boys room?

I like the ship in this area Erin. It's lighthearted and a wonderful conversation piece. All around beautiful!

Truthfully, it's not my thing. I do love the ottoman-- but I'm kinda over bullion fringe. The staircase, though-- y.e.s.

This is such a cool and almost mysterious image. I love the ottoman (and those ice blue chairs!), and the ship is fun and unique in its own right!

I wish I was funky enough to like the ship, but I don't think so. I could have gone for something modern and swanky there, but not the ship.

Still, the chairs are incredible! And I love the staircase.

Gorgeous pic - the ottoman and chairs are stunning! I'd love to own those...

Loving the Balustrade, and the colours of the walls, chairs and ottoman too. I think the ship fights with the balustrade for attention!

I think the ship is beautiful. Reminds me of going to church, actually...

This is my first time at your blog and it is BEAUTIFUL! I too, love turquoise and costal style even though I am land locked in Pennsylvania.
Thanks for sharing all your delightful finds!

oh wow! The ship chandelier is so much fun! My dad is obsessed with sailing and boats...I am going to forward this along to him!

I love the ship chandelier, I finally saw one in person last year, They have one above the check in counter at the Dream Hotel in NYC, it is enormous and very eye catching!

mustang said...

I love the ottoman as well. The chandy is not something I would want but it would be great for anyone who loves ships and sailing. Great photo though!

The ship is my favorite part!!!

Truly Engaging said...

WoW! Super interesting photo. You're right, the lighting is perfect! I love the ship but I can see moving it to different areas of my house from time to time... to capture light here, or to bring interest to a corner there... It's a cool conversation piece!

Sarah @ Dream In Domestic said...

I think the whole room is pretty awesome (including the ship) but for some reason, it seems a little cold to me. Maybe it needs some art above the table or some more color. I can tell you this - as beautiful as that staircase is, I would not want to walk up and down that every day!

I especially like the idea of painting just the tops of stairs turquoise:) ... OR painting the inside of a DOOR turquoise. I keep flirting with the idea of painting my hallway turquoise (since your blog has put the turquoise spell on me! ;) ) -- but I keep pulling back partly because I'm not sure the color would go with the tile work (similar to Spanish tile) and baseboard -- not to mention the prospect of cutting in around FIVE doors. BUT, I could paint just the inside of the front door blue, to set it off against the now-white walls and to have that peek-a-boo blue when looking through the arched living room doorway! ... and when it's time for me to sell the condo years down the road, it'd be easy for me to just paint the door white again. Hmmm.....
