A layered home


This eye-catching design is very comfortable and welcoming, an antique table, contemporary art and a beautiful armchair provides a wonderful corner to the homes living room. I thought this home was a lovely Tuesday morning distraction....

To me the living room feels like somewhere I could pop a drink down and relax without feeling too nervous. I love the collection of global fabrics in various textures and patterns.

The timeless white kitchen cabinetry is broken up beautifully with the blue subway tiles.

The custom built shelves behind the beds allows this boy a place to store all his treasures!

The antique maps which has been applied to one of the bedroom walls add's character against the red chairs.

Hello Amanda

Gorgeous array of designs

I love the antique maps and the kitchen pictures.

I have subway tiles in white that I have only come to appreciate more in my last few years - though the blue ones are so pretty.

Maps make me feel like I am in an old library - so full of history or knowledge. I really love old wold globes too.

have a lovely day Amanda and hope you are well - I know you are busy :)
