Simple & Stylish

Hi again, I hope you all had a lovely weekend!!
This home belongs to the beauty editor of Madison Magazine - I love the vintage chair which has been recovered in a black and white stripe fabric and works so well with the mirror and round table. This image is very simple but very stylish.

A display on her mantel...


The desk area has been incorporated into the kitchen, living area which I think is a great idea, especially if you have kids trying to do homework while you are cooking dinner or where you cannot spare a room for a study.


I love the pink ceramic lamp and display of flowers on the bedside table. I too always seem to have a collection of books on my bedside table!

I do belive that I love anything black and white. I also noticed one of the pictures on the right. It is a cream living room with taupe shiny velvet pillows from the Kobe fabric collection. I am in love. Thanks for the inspiration. Heidi

What great style Amanda! I love this home because its not too precious, tricked up or overly styled. Just lovely pieces that look as though they've been well-loved over the years, mixed cleverly with newer items - perfect!

So pretty.. I love the chair also, how you could not? But I also love that pink lamp. I'm looking for bedside lamps right now so my eyes went right too it. And in my opinion there must always be a stack of good books on the bedside table!
