The fastest growing board on my Pinterest account is definitely the home decor board (La Maison). I’m such a fashion junkie, so I didn’t expect this to be my biggest collection of pins, but I suppose it makes sense.
I’ve been obsessed with the idea of what makes a house feel like home ever since I found myself changing dorms or apartments every year from age 13 to age 20. I also know that I’ll be moving in July and hope to have a place of my own for the first time ever. I can’t wait to decorate it and am constantly thinking about it!
My La Maison Pinterest board has inspired me to start a new series, Best Room in the House, to showcase some of my favorite home decor photos. Hopefully it will be a series that will also help me figure out more of what I like and want for myself. I may not always focus on an entire room, but on different elements of a room – window treatments, couches, beds, dining tables, etc.
For my first Best Room in the House post I thought I’d continue along with my fireside theme to help warm you up. I hear it’s pretty cold up North.
I love the clean, white feminine look of the walls, fireplace, and chandelier; the furniture gives the room a great punch of color.
This room is so Parisian in the best of ways! I’ve always wanted a chaise longue, this one is like a cross between a chaise longue and a day bed. It looks perfect for sprawling out on with a warm, fuzzy blanket, hot cup of tea, and a book in front of a roaring fire.
I’m not sure I would ever have these colors play such a starring role in my house, but I admire the daring combination of greens with white accents. This is the sitting room you would go to in the evening for a glass of brandy and some serious prose.
What a great idea for a non-working fireplace! Cover it in fabric and paint logs or some other object a complementary color for display.
The attention to detail in Art Nouveau is so impressive!
I love this Moroccan-style fireplace that is so elegant and charming with its sweet green and purple tiles.
Take your pick of any book in the library and plop down in a cozy, overstuffed chair!
Can’t get enough of the gilt mirror, green marble on the fireplace, pink & red accents, and black lacquered floor.
It’s a tie for favorite between this one the one with the purple ottoman/coffee table. The wall is a perfect shade of pink – bright and lively but not to brash – and the blue makes the perfect complement. Add in a little white to give it a polished look! Not to mention that great black & white portrait of Walt Whitman.
