In a single word - delicious!

Things That Inspire said...

It's an interesting room - not what you would expect. I wasn't sure about the small piece above the fireplace, but it is growing on me.

The problem with banquettes stuck in the corner like that is that no one ever wants to sit there. Or at most, one person will. It's totally wasted as far as seating goes.

Otherwise, it looks exactly like something ED would publish.

This is neutral so good. Love the simple and yet still eye-catching fireplace, love the unexpectedly smallish art piece
on it, love the bird chair, and especially love the way the sofa cozies up to that nook.

Chic room! Who did it?

Banquettes are wonderful and cozy..this one is espeically handsome and looks like it could hold 3-4 people. Love the floor, the soft plaster and the "no mantel" look.

Despite the roaring fire, I find it cold. Too much of the wrong white.

my favorite and my best said...

i loooooooooove that room and the smallness of the clock is, to me, what makes it interesting.
i love the "misuse" of scale in interiors.

Agree with Jenny and Nelya. And I adore that sectional in the corner. I think it's exactly where a few people would settle to have an intimate conversation. And I think the white is just right too -- perfect that the hides on the floor are the same tone.

The clock definitely pops in contrast with the pared down, mod furniture. Nice.

Cheers, Alcira

Gawd I still love cowhides- especially this one with the soft flecks. Wonder how long they'll be hot? And more importantly... what do you think is the next go-to neutral chic rug? Feel like I've been seeing a lot of flokatis recently. Which I would also like in this room.

smoochies,
Naomi

I want to sit on that corner sofa and snuggle up with my November magazines and catch up on ITLSF archives ALL. DAY. LONG.

Grooviest little clock ever.

TOPSY said...

What a delightfully inviting room-I cant wait to see the whole house! I love the work of Bories & Shearron, so suave and classic. I've heard a lot about them lately.…

Raina Cox said...

Naomi - The next go-to neutral chic rug? Hmmmm...I'm actually seeing the opposite of neutral lately - global rugs. Persians, kilims, anything from Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.

sweetbittertart and TOPSY - Hello to you both and welcome to this deliciousness!
