What I'm Loving Now

I have a folder on my desktop labeled "interiors". Every time I come across a picture of a beautiful room, antique, or piece of furniture, I tuck it away in that folder. Sometimes if I'm low on inspiration, or just feeling down in the dumps, I'll flip through it, and will inevitably feel better as a result. Today I thought I'd share with you some of the things I've added recently. There's no unifying theme other than that each of these pictures made me pause and say "wow".

In other news I sanded the most MOST fantastic solid cherry Queen Anne style Harden dining table yesterday. I was a trooper as it was nasty cold out and it took 2hours to do the table and two leaves. Worth it though. Wait till you see the finished result. :-)

This couch is up on craigslist right now. I love the sunny yellow vintage upholstery. Would be gorgeous in a neutral living room.

Another craigslist piece, this antique desk. Just the kind of thing I want in my workshop. All the drawers and counter space would make it ever so useful. 

Everything about this room is really lovely, but the best part is the painted floors. In the early 19th century there was much more decorative floor painting like this. I think it's a trend that should come back. 

The most beautiful living room with pops of orange to unify the space.

This glass door cupboard is gorgeous. I definitely want to try this paint combination
next time I have a hutch in my clutches

Cheeky antique theater sign. Stunning.

And here's a wonderful secretary with a delicious paint surface.
The muted robin's egg blue with the dove gray is just outstanding/ 

This giant vintage circus poster is irresistible. Such a bold way to add color to a room.

When I saw this pair of antique tufted chairs I gasped. They sold at auction recently. 

A spectacular collection of antique ironstone is perfection on a little green shelf. 

sooooooo many delicious shades of green here

I think we can all agree this is the most incredible shower ever. 

And finally a beautiful living room space. Such a lovely fireplace.
This looks like such a blissful place to sit and sip a cup of tea.
