Yes, I know...

These images of designers John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross' home from the latest Elle Decor will be (or already are) plastered all over the blogosphere. I don't care, I'm freakin' my freak. Have I ever told you how much I love art hung in front of bookshelves? Even more so when it's modern, and BIG.

Oh, and the tuxedo sofa with nailhead trim, perfect for a tête-à-tête.

There's so much going on in this space I'm adoring, I don't know where to begin. Regency armchairs gone Turq-WAZ, Saarinen table befriending an antique, French settee, Buddha, and what? Is that clematis in a vase? Brilliant!

Classic, kilims or persians in the kitchen - another fave of mine. Unfortunate choice of gingham on the sink skirt, but I'll overlook it.

It IS an amazing home.

I've met both of them several times at market and they are so charming. The very definition of gentlemen.

First post I've seen on this and I'm glad I did ... not sure how I didn't notice it in the magazine? A totally charming place and really quite hip. A big fan...

Michelle said...

Oh yes, LOVE it, going to totally copy it too. Mostly I drooled over that page cuz of the rug, the exact one I would have chosen....sigh

I'm a fan of art being being hung in front bookshelves too! Have loved it every time I've seen it in a room and makes me want to do it in my own home!

The second and third images are divine. A few months ago you posted about Big Lots having garden stools for $20...I checked it out and indeed bought myself a couple of red ones. I have recently spray painted them cream and they are on my back porch. Lovely-Lovely-Lovely. Thanks for the tip;)!
