Today I was perusing an article in Elle Décor, Blogs We Love and was led to stylebeat.blogspot.com and a feature on Kendall Wilkinson Design & Home in San Francisco.
There I found this luscious photo featuring an inviting spot to rest, sip a cup of tea, peruse Elle Décor ... etcetera, etcetera ... all those things I, as a young mom of 2 rambunctious kids, used to dream of doing on a white chair and ottoman in a peaceful alcove in my cottage by the sea ... or the vineyards ... or the city lights!
Yes, someday I would be tasteful and elegant and thoughtfully understated. When visitors would pop in unexpectedly ... I would fling my door wide so they could glimpse the vignettes of wonder carefully sprinkled throughout my abode.
Flash forward to 2010. Two adult kids off on their own. Instead, we've dogs and garden projects and sanding dust and unfinished rooms and coco the cat ... and still no white chairs of respite to take me away.
Instead of imagining your dream room of the future, why not give Johnelle a call for some partnership and inspiration on creating your functionally fantastic space for today? Practical advice and affordable project support can help you start living a little sweeter in the present ... take it from me, those perfect dream rooms are most likely just for dreaming!
( I DO still love that pop of orange on white ... but there must be a million ways to achieve that effect in a more practical way than an armchair ... !!)
