Quote of the Week

“Rooms are albums that provoke memories. What you decorate with should remind you of a street you wandered down or an experience that made you happy.”

— Designer Amy Hase

    :))) Like Nate says: all of the things around me are personal references... they remind me of places I've been to and people I've loved :)

    nice post! :)
    have a lovely week!

  2. Love the last two, I wish I had the guts to decorate with such bright colors ha.

  3. Love the quote and especially love those gorgeous red bar stools in the last pic!

  4. Love the blue and yellow + the sheep!

  5. I grew up in a house full of beautiful things. And what made them beautiful had nothing to do with expense. Some may have been worth some money - but for the most part they all had a story. From a trip to Greece or a dusty old junk shop or a crazy lucky find on the side of the highway. Once in an article, the decor of my old home was described as "eclectic." That word has been pretty overused as of late and I far prefer the more recent concept of a "curated" home. That's what I want for my own home. And what I love about some of the pictures above. They're full of stories. About a life - not a shopping trip or a good decorator. (Though who couldn't use a good decorator to help arrange the stories?)

  6. I really love the bedroom and study with use of traditional antiques..with a twist. The spaces feel well lived, and reflect a well travelled full life.

  7. I love that first interior with that really cool vintage floor lamp! Such a great quote!! xx
