Fabulous Room Friday 01.21.11

This week’s room looks rather cozy, especially with the fireplace to keep one warm. A sweet reader sent this beautiful room to me yesterday and I was instantly smitten. Many of the items in the space veer more towards the traditional side, but certain items like the gorgeous marble coffee table, Moroccan end table and Greek key stool add a touch of modernity to the room. I love the assortment of chairs, especially the gorgeous whisky colored leather on the Louis chair. What is your favorite item in the space?

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I am heading to Los Angeles to put the finishing touches on High Gloss with our art director, Ashley and fellow editor, Shannon. I’m looking forward to getting a lot of work done, spending some time with my girls, and hopefully, enjoying warmer weather than we’ve been having in Houston lately!

My favorite is the huge round mirror!

Having minored in Art History, I am a proponent for authentic art in the home instead of a piece one could purchase at z gallerie...no disregard for z gallerie since we love their stuff. However, I appreciate the large oil piece incorporated in this space; it's divine. I also love the coffee table. Is that marble? If so, it is gorgeous. And, I love the sense of a dash of whimsy in the addition to the stool with the greek key fabric...plus the "Americana" (?) element as seen in the console.

Really digging that painted blue fireplace - how cool and unexpected!?

I'm headed to L.A. today, too! Here's to 75 degree weather! (it's 19 in Nashville today - brrrr)

Thanks so much for posting the picture I sent you. You made my day.

I really love the area rug and the little Greek Key stool. Oh, and the yellow walls!
