Black and White and a POP of Colour!

Contemporary done well.

Bright, airy, crisp.

You know I love tufting and this ottoman is way cool!
The Trina Turk geometric rug and pillows...wowsers.
I'm not a huge turquoise fan but this works.
When I look at those doors, I want to paint mine.

I think about all of you friends, it's been crazy wild around here with visiting friends and 
trying to get some things nailed down on the wedding
(son getting married Oct 22 in MI).
Looking for the 'perfect' mom of the groom dress and I am way picky and want some elegance not some granny look. 
As Fifi says, 'le sigh'!

  1. I do like this room...turquoise and tufting and especially the black doors...I'm a big fan, but your right it's not for everyone!!!

  2. What a fresh take on turquoise. Not overdone, but just enough to pop! Being a window treatment gal myself, I love the drapes at the door. Simple, clean lines, not heavy.

  3. My dear,

    I guess you're getting busy with plans for the wedding...such joy!

    There is no risk for a granny look, you will look stunning....but not to forget your handkerchief, you don't want your mascara to spill over.


    Today I'm off for a party, the very first for a rather long time...I'm really looking forward, just hope my back is ready for it.

  4. We are alot alike from our not loving blue to being picky about the dress. I remember looking for one for my daughters wedding, ended up with a great dress from Belk...who knew. lol

  5. Wish I was there to go shopping with you!
    Not a big fan of tufting on an ottoman used as coffee table - too many crumbs and dust get in the tuts ha ha.

  7. Wow, I am loving black and white right now and since turquoise is one of my favorite colors, it's not hard for me to love that tufted ottoman.


  8. My faves: The rug....and the black door. Which is very timely...'cause I am painting and deliberating over mine as I type!! Come see and weigh in.

  9. Love that floor rug and the black painted doors are just fabulous! Tracey xx
