Inspiration Snapshot: Chic Elegance

Doesn't this room feel like a breath of fresh air?! I spotted it in the brand new issue of High Gloss Magazine, which launched today. I'm usually not a fan of white walls but in this case, white totally works. The gold frames, grasscloth upholstered ottoman, black lamp shade and cowhide rug add texture and depth to the space; the pops of lavender and purple bring everything to life. It's feminine, classy, simple and chic. I love, love it! You too? See the rest of this fabulous home designed by Mary McGee, on pg.97 of High Gloss Magazine.

  4. I'm not seeing it, I like so many of her other spaces but this looks disjointed to me.
