How can I look at these stunning rooms from an old Danish home and not feel they should belong to me?! Me, me, me! I am on such a light kick right now. But I am really just going back to my Swedish roots? Or am I mentally preparing for the long dark months ahead? I clearly need something to off-set that mood! Light — come on in!
(Also heart the light gray walls. And the large contemporary painting with a touch of orange in it).
Even the cats are perfect.
What a beautiful eating area. Imagine it lit with candles for the evening supper. I would never leave the room.
My Mom has always said: “Invest in a good pair of quality silver candlesticks”.
I’ve heard it a zillion times. But she is so right. Timeless beauty. They never go out of style.
Rust you can always trust for a pretty patina.
Love it all.
Also L.O.V.E this oil painting “Gray Island”.
I found a recycled barn wood frame at a local framing store that I think works well with the painting. When I put the two pieces together the young sales assistant asked me:
“Did you paint this yourself”? “Nope, a dear friend of mine did, I said. “It is so cool!”, he exclaimed. It is more than cool. It is original and beautiful — and very affordable. A most perfect gift.
Hop over to Michele’s store here – and browse her other pretty art pieces.
“Gray Island” would fit right into any of the rooms in that beautiful Danish home. Perhaps above the linen chair to the right with the b/w cat on it. Look at that area again. It screams for just a bit of color and something that “embraces light” just like Michele’s paintings do.
In my next post we are going to talk about white paint colors. I so often get e-mails asking for paint recommendations. I am going to share some. And I hope that you want to share your favorite white shades with us. Yes, salute white!
Hugs to you all.
