This Savor Sunday

See What We Love About This Design

Each Sunday we’ll share a design that caught our eye and we took some time to savor.  The calendar says Spring but Mother Nature is not letting go of a cozy fireplace just yet in this beautiful living room shared via Jenkins Interiors At first glance we see a fairly traditional decor.  With a closer look, we see several design styles that all blend together so nicely.  Let’s curl up and Savor this Sunday!

We Spy With Our Designer Eye….

  • rustic beams in a honey stain give a simple ceiling character
  • subtle definition of the fireplace chimney is smooth and creamy
  • the barely there mantel lets the curved corner detail of the firebox be the star
  • stately black arched doors, with good old fashioned brass knob plates, are an architectural treat
  • an oversized, king arthur like chandelier must be amazing dimmed at night
  • fireplace screen compliments that darling firebox box again
  • notice the to the floor window is painted white…no competing with those doors
  • is this perfectly patterned carpet wall to wall-no hardwood?
  • a creamy roman shade with pale gray banding is ready to change the scene and probably has a sister to the right of the fireplace
  • snow white walls let every other color and texture be noticed
  • a pair of comfy chairs with leafy patterned pillows and accompanying reading lamp
  • fiddle dee fiddle fig in a big white pot brings nature inside
  • is that a tv in-between those sunny yellow vases?
  • pale powder blue sofas, times 2 loaded with downy pillows
  • a lavender throw is the exact opposite of the neon dish on the woven nesting tables
  • painted coffee table holds a milky gold tray and a keeper of it all pup perched on the pile of reverse spine books
  • the family in the adjoining kitchen having a unrushed breakfast on a chilly morning
  • book club members, in spring sweaters too early, warming up by the fire
  • Mom hugging her grown daughter admiring her welcoming home!

Savor This Sunday!

    1. Yes the added colors are so personal! This designer knows exactly how to make a neutral background the perfect LBD for her client. So well done! Now I am going to go “shop in my own closet” and pair up a lavender sweater I have with some of these other textures and ideas. Sunday is a Funday!

  1. Hi Laurel, those exposed beams change the whole character of the room – such an unexpected and interesting touch! Lxx

    1. Our ceilings offer so much real estate just begging to be a part of the design!

  2. I look forward to these Sunday posts. It’s nice to have thing spelled out through a designer’s eye.
