Den Dreams

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...

Library Design Board

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.
Mohair sette.
Motega lamp or similar in a color from the accent fabric.
Small x-stools for under the console.

Makeshift Mudroom

Before....blank wall, pile of jackets and backpacks.

After....added wainscotting to match the rest of the house and hooks.  Everything has a place and in it's place.  Joy!
