A SOPHISTICATED TWIST ON SHABBY CHIC

A great mix of patterns, colors and styles


Yummy upholstery and pretty pillows


A room Rachel Ashwell could love


I have this Aubusson rug in my bathroom...Love it, Love it, Love it


Love the Lucite chairs, so French and edgy with the Damask cushions


Beautifully tall windows and great pop of pink!


Don't you wish this was your neighborhood???


White with a splash


Fabric on canvas stretchers propped against the walls
Who needs art? Wait, that is art!


Aren't these gorgeous panels??


Pretty window treatments...so soft and flowing.
The painted white floor is so fresh and crisp


This ceiling's to die for...what intricate detail


Wall panels and grouped art for sophisticated interest in a room



Such pretty pastels mixed with contemporary clean lines


Cabbage rose wall paper with a sophisticated twist...and how about this daybed? It's soooooo pretty.


What a glamorous and sophisticated room. This is such a great way of grouping of photos. Who wouldn't love this wall color. It reminds me of one of my favorite stores...hmm and maybe yours too?


Limestone mantels and herringbone parquet floors...so French


Now that's a Tremeau mirror.... I simply must have one!!!

Gail,

Those pastels are beautiful, I love the aquas, blues and pinks and the girly look to all those rooms. What city/town is that street from, it looks beautiful? As always thanks so much for sharing with us.

All things nice...

Oh-my-word, I am going to sit and stare at all these pictures for a long time. Heavenly, all of them! Thanks for making my night, I am thinking I need a new dining room, some wallpaper in my family room, a new chair or two...

I just adore all of the wonderful color you have displayed here. So refreshing! Gald you liked the wroght iron table at the flea market--did you notice that the table in the first photo (this was taken at my friend's Loire Valley chateau) looks very much like the one at the flea? It has been great swaping eye candy dreams with you today!
