Galbraith & Paul Spring 2012 collection of block printed fabrics on linen.

Love everything in the home of Cosima von Bulow Pavoncelli designed by Markham Roberts. The whole home has a warm, layered feel. It appears effortless but in reality is harder to achieve. Keep in mind, Cosima is a Dutchess, I don't think any of this is from IKEA. It takes some investment but I would like to lean into this aesthetic. I like this English sofa with nail head trim and ikat pillows. It is flanked by modern end tables layered with books and topped with gourd lamps.
Peter Dunham's one day makeover of an LA home. Linen block-print fabrics from his own line provide muted color. The chairs are from a Paris flea market. He adds more texture with a natural woven rug (from IKEA!) and cowhide from DWR. This room leans masculine but seems to have a good balance which I appreciate. I want my three boys and husband to feel comfortable in our home.
Bookish. Mercury glass vase from West Elm converted to a lamp, clever.
More from Peter Dunham. Linen textiles, natural woven rug, layers. Nice.

New sofa, perhaps a tightly slipcovered English roll arm sofa in linen. If I go light I'll need to be able to wash it.
Offset the traditional with some modern end tables that could hold our coffee table books and robert abbey lamps.
Chang Mai fabric for our ottoman. Love the teal, greens, yellow and bold pink hues and it mixes well with what I already have.
Chocolate graphic rug...needs to handle the traffic of four children as the den leads to the backyard.
And then I would lounge around in this gorgeous blue dress...
Playing with ideas for our front 'library'. It's a small space, the original cozy cottage-sized entry plus living room with fireplace.
Tufted and skirted lee chairs flanking the stone fireplace with Suzani Trellis pillows.
Herringbone sisal layered with a zebra rug.
Motega lamp or similar in a color from the accent fabric.
Small x-stools for under the console.

Here is a peek into how the kids rooms turned out. There was a moment that they were fairly tidy, so I quickly snapped some pics. Still a work in progress but getting there...
