...tiny moments...

...finding inspiration in the tiny moments of beauty in both of these rooms- loving the small cluster of image & objects in the bedroom-they are for sure a tribute to something special; While the collage of sky photos in the entryway of grays, blues, & whites is restful & calming- both lovely....xx

...shacking up...

Today Root serves up the 3rd edition of "shacking up".  This is a concept board for a living room with a laid back rocker vibe  (model Erin Wasson as the muse).  An unapologetic mix of era's in this one...enjoy! xx {mvg}

...the luggage act...



I'm usually more of an asymmetrical but balanced kind of gal when it comes to decorating- no matching lamps- mismatched end tables. Nonetheless, I'm really digging the styling of the entryway above.  The perfect symmetry of the lamps & chairs is offset just enough by the mismatched vintage-stacked luggage.  It definitely helps to keep it interesting without appearing too stiff or formal.  I also love the aqua blue coral accent & how it ties back to the chocolate & aqua paisley print on the side chairs.  Well done!  I wish I knew where this image came from...just dragged it out of the archives! xxx MVG

...monday blues...

A moody blue interior color palette for you....xox

...return to the mtns...

Halloween weekend was filled with blazing fires, the chill of fall, hiking, butternut squash soup & red wine in Big Bear.  I'm really looking forward to winter in Vermont followed by adventures in the mountains of France with my husband- it's going to be a good year. xo
