Fornesetti love image número tres!
Anne Hathaway loves them too!
Fornesetti eye candy image número UNO!
Okay, I think this image is going to be the base inspiration for the master bedroom (with one queen bed) I am drooling over its simplicity yet still delivers the right serving of texture and pattern…
And those fornesetti plates are to die for.
Heres another add on for a stylish brunch statement! Inspired from men’s fashion, a Check tea cup and saucer set from Maxwell and Williams would layer its self very nicely with crisp white dishes..
And to make your lives even better it’s %50 percent off now at Bowring! You can have this for a whopping $4.99…plus taxes Ofcourse!
Who wouldn’t love to have brunch in the uber stylish room? It’s as if a living room transformed itself into a dining experience. The coffee table raised and clothed,and two fabulous armchairs pulled in for a cozy social setting! Great idea for a small space.
I am also in love with the walls and their washed out seafoam colour on top of the panel moulding.

Here is another exceptional example. Canadian House and Home editor in chief Suzanne Dimma and architect hubby Arriz Hassams gallery wall exemplifies a comfortably smart and casual living environment, the best part of this photos to me is how much they are enjoying being/using their space.
A back issue of Architectural Digest features one of Prince Charles’ home. Take a look at the grandeur of his Gallery… It’s astounding and aspirational.
There’s something magical about clustering a collection of sentimental items… Even pieces that are traditionally used on it’s one can only be made more wonderful by surrounding them with things that are complimentary. I say go nuts! Much like I did on the focal wall in our home. The pieces of my gallery wall are composed of all things I love and adore and items that I have collected through the years… Since joining forces with my partner Johnny over three years ago he too has gotten in on the fun. There are heirlooms from his parents and mine, personal photos of memories we’ve captured with friends and tokens of things we’ve purchased while on our travels. This is what I believe makes a gallery wall successful. It should unfold a story to the viewers and should be a visual summery of what you stand for.
Gallery walls are classic and will never go out of style, the pieces might change for relevance sake but the concept is eternal!
Try your own gallery wall by playing scavenger hunt around the house, scouring basements, and weekend flea markets in your area, the sources are really endless. Old jewelry and buttons are also great displayed in cheap and cheerful shadow boxes.
I can go on and on but I leave you with two words…BE FEARLESS! Start small and when you think your composition is out of control! Add another!
Horizontal love affair… For those who have seen the segment of my home on S&C, I’m sure you would have guessed that I am obsessed with black and white, especially of the thick banded vertical variety…although I must admit that the softer more tone on tone horizontal stripe treatment is beginning to tickle my fancy. Check out this lovely casual dining room mixing it’s traditional shab, that is counter balanced with its strict and contemporary horizontal striping… It’s eye candy.
