Day 703's inspiring spaces
Sometimes even the most attainable-looking rooms published in the most attainable-feeling magazines aren't what they seem. Often they're filled with fine antiques, to-the-trade only fabrics, and accessories with price tags that would make your eyes pop out. Or maybe that's just me.
Now, don't get me wrong, I love an interior done to the nines as much as the next person, but what I love more (much, much more) is an interior done by a real person, with a real budget.
Especially if they have great taste, and maybe even access to a really, really great little thing or two to put next to a lamp found at a thrift store.
Such is the case with this little gem, home of Style Director Michael Penney, published in Canadian House & Home (courtesy of Erin at Elements of Style).
Every time I look, there is more to love. And -- even better -- there is that thought in the back of my head that, "hey, I could do that."
