Peaceful & Pretty




I am overwhelmed with a sense of serenity when I stare into these beautiful photographs taken by Emily Gilbert. Designed by Ali Schwarz and styled by Rebecca Omweg, the peaceful palette and beautiful furnishings are absolutely heavenly. I just wish I could magically transport myself into the last photo and work from that desk all day. Not a bad view! Of course I'd turn around every few minutes, because the view in the other direction is equally as lovely!

This by far one of my favorite eye candy pictures you have posted. I too want to sit at that desk! I love all the textures and soothing colors the designer used.

Your photos are always so pretty and I love the way they turned an ordinary off white sofa into something spectacular with that trim.

Pale aqua, sand and white. Nothing is more calming or lovelier - of course, it's made even moreso by that incredible view!

Thanks for a great lift! Gorgeous photos.

Serenity for sure. Gosh I love that slip on the sofa ... what a lovely little detail to sew a band with a pattern. Always a lovely post! One of my very favourites!

The word "Sophisticated" immediately comes to my mind. It's gorgeous and I LOVE the fabric on that sofa. How elegant!

Absolutely my favorite! So calming, peaceful, and beautiful. : )

I, also, would like to know the name of the artist who painted the pictures above the sofa. Also, the fabric on the sofa.

I had been debating as to whether to go ahead and get the cream colored fabric I had picked out for our new sofa and love seat, rather than white slipcovered ones. Now, after seeing this room, I am going full steam ahead with the cream! My one chair will either get a white slipcover or that beautiful shade of blue on the sofa in this room. I already have this shade of blue in our room and a great view of marsh grasses and waterways outside our huge glass door, as well as small jute rugs. Thanks for this wonderful inspirational room!!

Hi Erin! I was wondering if you've ever done a post with some pictures of gray living rooms with accents of turquoise? I'm thinking that's the combination i want to go with in my new home but haven't found many pictures on google-image; where else would you suggest browsing?

Erin said...

Hi LeAnne,

I did put together a post about turquoise and gray, you can see it here!

And everyone else, I love the artwork too...I'll see what I can find out. If anyone knows, please let us know!

To the people who own this home: You don't know me, but I am moving in. Expect to see me on your doorstep very soon with a cat under each arm and a kitten balanced on my head! Just looking at these pictures drops my blood pressure by 10 points, so calming! - Kimberly

I agree - that desk is so tempting! Soft music playing and a cup of tea would complete the dream.

When everyone else is obsessing over the Brian atwood

shoes
latest pair of Loubs or YS’L’s it’s very easy to overlook awesome shoe lines and

designers who push the envelope.

brian atwood is one Brian atwood pumpsof those

designers.

louboutin Link Exchange said...

I’m a fan of his lines because Atwood really sets out to make his shoes a conversation piece.
Brian atwood boots The use of alternative textures

and fabrics makes brian atwood shoes unique.

When wearing his shoes you are guaranteed a compliment from someone and a definate shoe in for

I think the paintings are by Chris Metze. Beautiful!

Sandra said...

Oh Erin, those rooms are simply wonderful. The wall colours are just what I can envision for our home and we have a coffered (stained wood) ceiling that will get painted out and I can't wait. I would love to know the colours they used in these rooms, any ideas?
