Day 795's favorite from the archives


This is one of my top 5 favorite pages ever published in Cottage Living. I just love everything about it!


The wallpaper is especially delightful (Brockhampton Star by Farrow & Ball). But paired with the sconces, the mirror, the chair, and the chest is perfect. Lucky for us, I managed to save the source info, even though I tossed the rest of the magazine in a cleaning frenzy (silly me thought they'd live forever!). Other noteable things in the photo: Trim and ceiling paint is Antique White by Pratt & Lambert; rug is from HomeGoods (looks like mine!); shades by Smith + Noble; curtains and hardware by The Shade Store; basket is from Frontera Iron, a local iron shop.

That is a really great room. I know, I tossed mags too, after I tore out my fave sheets - boo to me!

Gotta love a good HomeGoods find - like that lovely rug!
