Pat from Santa Monica sent me this beautiful image of a room perfect to post on Valentines Day!
She said “I’ve found a pink living room that just makes me sigh with relaxation every time I pull it up”.
I totally agree. Thanks Pat, you totally inspired this post!
The placement of the art on the wall reminded me of this quote I pinned the other day. . .
Of course the sofa table placed asymmetrically behind the sofa with the plant and accessories help to fill that empty wall as well. So pretty.
Another photo by Clive Thompsett. I couldn’t resist posting this too, it feels calm, fresh and well, early.
Speaking of fresh, that is the new word for the Parisian gray trend. You know how the Tuscan brown trend would be considered earthy?
For years, my clients would say “I looooove earth tones, that’s what I want!” Well, I’m not hearing it anymore. Not that there’s anything wrong with earth tones, but I have so often moved a client in the right direction in their design project just by asking the question:
“But you’re looking for fresh right?”
“Well”, I’ll say “Here’s how we’re going to get there with your house. . . “
Then the skies part, the angels sing, and everything’s easy after that, hee, hee. Actually I am serious. These last two days with my new True Colour Experts™ in downtown Vancouver is when we distinguished it together.
All of you, my readers are my Valentine! I so appreciate every one of you! I love your comments and your emails, thank you for making my life so happy! I hope you have a wonderful love day!! xo Maria
