Loving this home...


This is the beautiful home of designer Windsor Smith. One of my favourite designers! I have been enjoying these lovely images. Love the limestone floors.

In the family room she created two sitting areas.

Love the painted teak table, velvet and vintage fabrics in this room.

Gorgeous peonies...

Love the dark kitchen and the marble floor.

A simple and romantic bathroom.

I had my hand on some 'faux' zebra yesterday, and actually considered upholstering some'thing' with it -
but how hilarious for my local...there aren't any zebras!
but I like how she put those two areas of sitting in the same room - with that little side chair to match the rug....i'm lovin' the b&w 'trend' i'm seeing.

Absolutely love these. Great combo of neutral pallete (I think) and bursts of color.

Beautiful! I would love to see the view from the front door - I wonder whether it looks through to the back of the home?

Wow - is that really all one house?? I can't choose a favorite room. I love back-to-back couches. Especially when they're in such a beautiful fabric.
