Quote of the Week

"Look up! People fixate on arranging everything at eye level, but being attentive to all surfaces - from the floor to the ceiling - gives your eye places to roam and makes a space look coherent and resolved."

- Jonathan Adler, Happy Chic Accessorizing


  1. Wow!

    I love the ecclectic feel of the first image, the dining chairs are beautiful & I like the big trunk used as a coffee table in the 2nd image. The chandelier in the fourt image is simply stunning. A great selection of images :)

  4. Really love the first room !!


  5. Great advice. Jonathan Adler just opened a boutique near my home and it is indeed Happy Chic. I want to move in.

  6. Ooooohh love love love the second image! Accessorisng above eye level can make such a huge impact!

  7. So true, I don't give this much thought in my own home, what a difference it would make!

  8. These ideas are awesome! Loving the idea of adding texture on the ceiling. Possibly a stencil??

  9. Love that last image. The stone bowl is gorgeous! And all those frames up high! Great ideas!

  10. *** OK, Julie, "please forgive me, for I (probably) know not what I say"... BUUUUT, as they DO say, "To each his/her own"...

    While dinner at the FIRST table just MIGHT turn out to be fun/interesting/DEFINITELY unusual (a truly unique, new experience for sure!) and full of "interesting" folks, w/ varying ideas n' ideals, etc.... Well, I guess I can handle THAT "explanation"...

    ... the SECOND pic, however, with all that "STUFF" overhead would make me feel like I had to duck low in my seat & cover my head if I were in there!!!

    The OTHER 3 pics I really liked & enjoyed seeing... yes, they ARE a little more "conventional" and/or just "charming", but there's certainly nothing wrong with THAT, and as I said, "To each his own"...

    Thanks Sweetie,... Just HAD to get that off my chest! I always enjoy your blogs, & this was was definitely interesting!
