Not My Style, But…

I think it’s important to find beauty in places that push you out of your comfort zone. I like to think that I can appreciate all different kinds of styles, even if I wouldn’t choose to buy it/wear it/live in it. So when I laid eyes on this space over at Apartment Therapy yesterday, I had an immediate emotional response to it. I love it — I would love to stay there, but I wouldn’t want to live there. Make sense? Anyway, look at this beeyootiful library. Isn’t that just a dream? My ultimate fantasy is to have a gorgeous book room — with a rolling library ladder.

And I would love to sink into this little daybed. It reminds me of a little hotel I stayed at in London once. Can you believe that all of this fits into 600 sq. ft. in Greenwich Village, NYC? Amazing! That side table just makes it for me. It’s a classic style that could easily mix with modern pieces for an eclectic look.

    YES! That whole little separate cottage was my most favorite! That’s funny you should mention that. Simon and I were just talking about that not long ago.

    Yeah, it is a lot of stuff — that’s why I’d only want to visit, not really live there! 🙂
