A New View

New England Home
A child’s bedroom, a room with a view, a ship’s hull, perhaps? Wherever there is a round window, a new perspective is sure to follow.  Decorative or plain, paned or not, we think each of these round windows makes quite the statement.

Life of Polarn Per
We would like to send a big “thank you” to all the men and women around the world who fight for our freedom–especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice–and the families who support them. We are remembering and celebrating you today! Now, the view from my round window is telling me the ocean is calm and the beach is beautiful. Happy Memorial Day, everyone!


Things We Love: Houndstooth

A Life’s Design
Every room needs a touch of pattern to make it whimsical and light. While some prints can get a little too full of themselves, houndstooth always makes a statement while being classic and modest. It’s astounding how something can be so simple, yet make such a big impression. I’m into brown right now and wanting this rug somewhere in my house!

I don’t know what exactly is on that mantle — driftwood, maybe? — but it’s so cool!
Add Simplicity
Other colors of houndstooth are fun for making a splash, but, like so many things in life, I think black and white really does it best.
The Decorista
I would never have been brave enough to pair those pillows with that rug, but it’s so fun!

The splash of print on the back of these dining chairs is a fabulous contrast to the restraint shown by the rest of the room.
Tobi Fairley Design
Blue and orange is such an unexpected color combination, but it really works! I’m feeling a playroom color scheme coming on…
Diamond Baratta Design
Second only to black-and-white, hot pink houndstooth is one of my favorites.

Disco balls? I’m not exactly sure what to even say about that… Loving the chairs, though — and the photo by Kelley Moore.

The pattern and texture of this room adds so much dimension while the color palette keeps it so soft. Leather headboards are one of my favorite things.
