We thought a beautiful homage to classic blue and white (and a little red!) would be the perfect way to start the day today. This lovely Greenwich escape is just the place for a little mini-vacation without ever leaving your seat. We hope you enjoy your break as much as we did!

Lynn Morgan Design Happy Halloween, pumpkins! Wishing you a day full of sweet treats!
While, previously, we would have put it in the box with strictly modern design, which we appreciated and thought we might want to implement “someday,” now we think contemporary art fits in with pretty much any design scheme.
An antique table and bamboo chairs…

Or a dainty, tailored pleated skirt both pair well with an unexpected pop of art less ordinary.
[ Banquettes. Not only do they look beautiful but they sound beautiful as well. The word just rolls off the tongue… Just like this first curved banquette rolls around the room. These benches are elegant, comfortable and, if they’re tufted like some of these examples, all the better. The antlers over the stove are super cool too.
This window seat banquette is so fabulous. What a great way to maximize every inch of space in a smaller room.

Many of these banquettes are in casual spaces, but this one is just so incredibly elegant. It just goes to show that these pieces are so versatile, not to mention that it’s possible to have a formal dining area even if you don’t have a lot of space.
Love, love, love the lucite!
The color flow in this house is so amazing. We love how they’ve incorporated splashes of the bold citrus in the adjoining room with those great bamboo chairs and vintage light fixture.
This just goes to show that pattern doesn’t have to be scary. I would never have been brave enough to have checks on the floor, stripes on the bench and pattern on the chairs. But the effect is just so finished. And bold.
I think this one is my favorite. The color palette is so serene.
The cabinetry really makes this room, in my opinion. These display cases are so well done and create an instant focal point — not to mention a great place to store all your pretty things!
Tufted leather = to die for. I always think of black tufted leather for a man’s den, but this shiny banquette is so unexpected in this space. It’s amazing!
