All Buttoned Up

Elle Decor
When designing the rooms where we live the most, it’s all about a fabulous sofa.
For a sleek, room-defining look that’s the ultimate in sophistication, nothing beats a tufted couch.

We love the open legs and compact look of this beautiful loveseat.

But for a room where you plan to do a lot of living, something deep and comfortable fits the bill!

William Hodgins Design
We generally think of tufted tufted couches for manly, hunt-inspired rooms like this one…

But a sweet shape and precious pleated skirt give this staple a totally different look!

Greige Design
So often, tufted sofas are featured in dark leathers, but this light, juicy eggplant is a fun, fresh take that is oh so springy!

Thibaut Design
A neutral is never finer than in this tailored, constructed look. The fantastic shape adds loads of interest to a simple fabric.

Tufted sofas are better when they’re L-O-N-G! We would love to pile the whole family on here with a little popcorn for a fun (and sophisticated!) movie night!
Windsor Smith
This room is made for getting ready in the most leisurely fashion! We think Audrey would totally approve!

Change the fabric and change the look. This comfy fabric tones down the glamour for a place we would love to curl up in front of a roaring fire with a good book! Would you like a tufted sofa, or is the look too — well — buttoned up?! 
Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!

Monday Musings: Coastal Living

Today we thought we’d give you a little sneak peak into what the Beaufort living room is going to look like. We found this great photo and used it as somewhat of an inspiration for the feel of the living room. 
This isn’t everything, of course, but here are a few items we’ve been working on that we think are going to be absolutely essential in the room!
This Currey & Company driftwood chandelier is HUGE, and is going to be that perfect, chic yet down-to-earth element that the room needs.

This gorgeous painting by the majorly talented Kerry Steele will adorn the mantle. We love how it’s contemporary yet coastal.


We adore this custom sofa’s legs. We got the inspiration from one one of Phoebe Howard’s rooms! 
Ryan Studio Fretwork pillow
These fun pillows from Ryan Studio — in other colors — are going on the sofa.
This glamorous Regina Andrew shell…


And these whimsical, fun Studio A candlesticks…
Are going to look great on this Currey & Company coffee table!
Two small, upholstered club chairs…
In this fabric…


With this Regina Andrew Le Chic table in between will provide comfy, cozy seating — and a place for that all-important cocktail!
We’re getting so excited to see pieces start rolling in. We’re hoping that the house progress is coming just as well when we go check it out next weekend.
We hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
