Oh, how I love a great window seat. They are perfect for reading, chatting on the phone or even taking a nap. I also just adore they way they look in a room.
Window seat benches are also a great solution to small spaces

The key to perfectly hung drapes is utilizing the maximum amount of wall space around the window as possible. I love when the curtain rod just about hits the crown molding. In the picture below, you can easily see how the window on the left looks absolutely miniature next to the one on the right… Well, this illusion is just because of the curtain placement.
This look is so easy to achieve when you have large windows to begin with….
But, surprisingly, it’s also easy to achieve when you have smaller windows.

The intention of my blog post on Monday was to talk about all of the great varieties of lovely wallpaper out there on the market, but I got so carried away talking about Princes & Crows, that I completely went off on a tangent. That being said, today, I would love to share some of my favorite wallpapered rooms.
…starting with this beautiful, cozy country kitchenette. Not only do I love this wallpaper, but I am dying to own that chair at the head of the table.
The large patterns in these next two images are gorgeous and timeless.
I would love this paper for my husbands office. Redcoats on race houses = So manly!
The dark painted ceiling of this room is a beautiful complement to this gorgeous geometric wallpaper
gorgeous neutrals are so timelss….this style will be around forever.
In both fashion and interior design, I find something so sophisticated about the combination of black and tan. I love this Fall weekend look!
As well and this lovely design spotted on The Purple Bow
A design from the NYC super-star Celerie Kemble
The W Residences in Hollywood
And a few other bits of black and tan inspiration:
Ceilings are often neglected when designing a home, but they are one aspect of an interior space that can really pack a major punch. I love these unique ceiling designs.
I love coffered ceilings and trimwork detail – so regal and timeless
These patterns are gorg. I love the look of a wallpapered ceiling in a bathroom.
Natural wood is great for a vacation home
…especially when it is in an interior like this. The ceiling in the room of this ski house is amazing, but the entire design is so chic – the wall of windows, the fireplace, the white furnishing – it is my dream ski “cabin.”
A finished wood ceiling is just as special, but can create a more polished look
Beams on a ceiling make the space appear cozy
This orange high-gloss ceiling in designer Jefferey Bilhuber’s Manhattan apartment is definitely eye-catching
My current design obsession is anything transitional, feminine and from the grey or neutral color palette. I love the delicate and ethereal quality of these interiors because they look almost as light as air, but still have a substantial quality to them. Plus neutrals keep everything light, fresh and clean. By matching the color of the floor-wall-ceiling, you can make any space look much bigger.
I also love, love, love this living room.
