For my very first post to my blog I couldn't decide what to start with. My mind is always going in so many directions, so I thought I would take it back to the basics. What is it that I love and want to write about. The first thought to come to mind was STRIPES. I LOVE stripes! It could be a rug, a stair runner, a fabric, a pillow, a sofa, an upholstered chair, a shower curtain, a jacket, a bag, a table linen, a dress shirt for my husband, or a collar for a dog...I just love them! Most people have the misconception that stripes are strictly nautical or coastal. Not at all. You could use a stripe in your farmhouse or barn out by the stables. They really are one of the most versatile styles to incorporate into any design...I do! Add a few stripes in your home...it will make you smile.
Does anyone recognize this living room? Yes... this is the beautiful beach house from the movie Something's Gotta Give. I remember seeing this room in the movie theater and thinking I must buy this when it comes out on DVD to study this beautiful home from room to room...and I did! The striped rug was so perfect for this space.. so whimsical yet classic. I am also obsessed with the artwork in this movie too. I will have to talk about that when I have more time...
