Nine Pretty Pictures

















What do these have in common? Nothing. Nothing other than my undying love and devotion that is. No, seriously, check out the bold colors versus the softer tones, the beams and bricks and smooth as a baby's bottom worn wood surfaces, industrial and glamorous and above all, simple functional beauty. Yummers. You like? See, I told you, just nine pretty pictures.

Oh how pretty these are!! The chest in the first picture is gorgeous! And I'm loving the lighting in the second picture just as much! Great post girl, great post.

I love all of these... so perfect.
Brilliant minds think alike... I posted 2 of the same pictures you used in your previous post on my last post.... how great is "Ensuite" !!!

The Shiny Pebble said...

Why do I get the feeling that you had all of these catalogued into neat folders and pulled each of them from their distinct little categorized locations and poof here they are looking perfectly innocent and effortless...

Mandy said...

I'm so glad you got Sibella Courts book, you really do need time to really linger over it, I was in her store the other day and her assistant said she is in New York at the moment and in the process of doing another book on ... New York and travel and shopping... early days, but how great will that be.... I am going back to The Society Inc today (taking my mum, she has never been)... so I will think of you.... PS Hope the Jasper Conran book is good, will keep you posted XXX

Catherine, how ever did you know? ;0)

Pinecone Camp said...

No kidding! I think the last pic is Emily Chalmer's place? Caravan? I love all of these pics and rooms. Very happy post!

Marija said...

I can't explain it but I am totally smitten with that stair rail that's sort of like a half wall. Love these pics, Neyla. Industrial and glamorous but in a beautiful sort of way. Not glamorous in a mirrored hollywood trendy kind of way.

Vintage Simple said...

Oh, how funny... I just saved that photo of the dining room with the funky chandelier, too. :) These are all lovely, as always.

Hope you are well, dear.

xoox,

That staircase is blowing my mind up!

I'll tell you. This is the only blog one needs to visit. (I have not been so blog alert lately). When I visit you Nelya, I know that I need to make sure that I have enough paper in the printer!

Love the first image. How wonderful the paper art is. Love the scale of it.

Cyber hug,
