i hope that’s what our home is. a dose of classic, a dose of vintage, a dose of quirky, and very lived-in. i’m reading deborah needleman’s new book, and she writes about how a home should have personality and a sense of life, be appropriate for its inhabitants, and beautiful. while, i haven’t read much yet, i love the sentiment, and it is beautifully illustrated. she was the founding editor of domino, a brilliant shelter magazine that sadly folded a few years back – so sad i didn’t keep all those issues! – so i like to think that i’m just reading a continuation of good ol’ domino.
all her rooms have a sense of fun to them – whether that’s by color, pattern, or otherwise – but also a sense of practicality, like it works for the people who live there.

if you’re short on storage in the bathroom, i love the idea of a bar tray like this.
what kid wouldn’t love these rooms!?! love that there is a dose of sophistication as well as plenty of whimsy.
chevron floors! fun element for a relaxed sun room.
the settee at the foot of this bed is amazing. love those curves.
i think home should be a place where you can put your feet on the furniture…with your shoes off. :)
