  5. I didn't think it was possible to make this room even more inviting but I was wrong with the addition of more plants. The fabric on the sofa pillows is so beautiful and fresh looking for summer. Did you get a new brass tray leaning up against the barn door or did you polish all the brass?

  8. Perfect summer look. I see that is where you watch TV , I never noticed it on the wall before. My cats would love to hide under the giant shell. Really my older cat would when the younger much spunkier one would decide "time to play", he does torment her at times!

  16. I love when you share more photos of your beautiful home. I really study them and learn how to mix texture, pay attention to scale, and how to add the unexpected( your giant clamshell on the floor). Now I wonder which room do you spend the most time in when they are all so lovely! I would probably have to rotate every 15 minutes all day long so I could enjoy them all!

  31. Your barn room is my all-time favorite room in the world: spacious yet inviting. I love it dressed for summer or cozied up for winter. Even though I try, my attempts to recreate your style do not translate into your magical perfection. You have a gift.
