Quote of the Week

“You always want to mess with perfection. You decide to convey an idea, then do something to throw it a little off.”
— Mario Nievera



  1. Love that wallpaper in the fourth image its beautiful & the console table is simply lovely. some gorgeous images. fun pops of colour in the first image very striking

  2. Striking spaces if you are into colors! Well done but these colors are too aggressive for my personal taste. When at home, i need relaxing soothing colors and materials

  3. julie, i love this quote, i believe in throwing spaces off, any chance you get. that's when you get perfect in my opinion!

  4. you know what would be super awesome - if these images had some credits, links or background info. some readers may be interested in learning more about the original sources/designers/etc. just something to consider when posting inspirational images. check out this helpful flowchart: http://www.designsponge.com/2011/03/how-to-credit-just-check-the-poster.html

  5. Love the quote!! Perfection is always the goal, but never the destination.


  6. that's a wonderful quote..sometimes it is best not to play by the rules! love the images you have posted..have a lovely day..do visit my blog when you have a moment..xx meenal

  7. eloise, thanks for the tip on posting photo credits. i do post credits for every post on belle maison. today was an exception because several of these images are stored in my "blog files" on my computer, some of which i can't remember where they came from. i agree that it's extremely important to give proper credit to all images used :)

  8. i'm loving the use color! reminds me of stephanie hirsch's artwork - which would be great to liven up any room: http://www.clos-ettetoo.com/blogs/clos-ette-favorites/3476662-clos-ette-favorite-stephanie-hirsch
