Good evening from icy, snowy, messy New York.? Yesterday it was snow, today we are in the midst of a serious snow/ice storm. CRAZY weather, this is a winter surely to go down in the history books! I am so over winter, and praying for an early spring. Moving along…..

I cannot tell you how touched I was by all of the comments regarding my empty nester post yesterday and all the emails I received too…not only did you offer such? amazing and encouraging advice but honestly the kindness bestowed upon me brought tears to my eyes, thanks to you I am now feeling a wee bit more optimist about my soon to be empty nester status:) Whether you are an empty nester, soon to be one, or still have little ones at home…..reading over the comments is heartwarming and if you have an extra few minutes, I really encourage you to do so (click here). They would make a wonderful book! Thank you, I know I will refer back to it time and time again:)

So imagine this, the furniture fairy has paid you a visit…she is going to grant you with one wave of her wand a brand new fully done up living room! So imagine for a minute, one of these gets to be yours…which would it be? I set it up poll style…and since there are so many pretties, you can vote for two, so think hard:)

The velveteen habit………

Good late Monday afternoon sweetpeas, and how was your weekend? Ours was unexpectedly relaxing, spent a lot of time at home (always a treat) as we were trying to dig out of the approx. 22 inches that fell around here! It was quite the snowstorm. If you missed my pictures, seeing is believing you must check it out, click here. Now that mother nature has shown us who‘s in charge…I am totally ready to zoom into spring!

How I love velvet…. I actually always have had a thing for it but in recent years, my love has escalated to an obsession. And there’s no cure in sight. Kind of like the blue and white affliction….oh well at least it’s all in the name of beauty. I adore velvet, its luscious texture, soft sheen and coziness make it a fabric I could easily have in every room.

It is as beautiful in a living, dining or library as it is a study or bedroom. Add a beautiful trim to a solid color velvet and the result is nothing short of spectacular! As I am decorating my own home, I have more than a handful of ideas of how and where I plan to incorporate velvet. And seriously this is one fabric that looks just amazing in every single color, I have yet to see a color it doesn’t rock in!

Stunning! Velvet is so beautiful in a rich hue like this blue, and the tufting is like the icing on the cake! Atticmag

Chad Eisner chose a slate gray velvet trimmed in a contrast piping for this elegant room
Christina Murphy added the wow factor to this room by installing a kelly green velvet sofa with contrasting tape….beautiful!
Sandra Nunnerly created this gorgeous living roolm with warm toned velvet upholstered pieces..love it!?

?A gorgeous chaise in purple velvet in this sitting area is gorgeous, AD

Love a velvet ottoman,especially this beauty in navy with nailheads, stunning!
Thomas Burak designed this magnificent moss green beauty….love the addition of decadent trim

This beautiful dining room gets a periwinkle velvet to grace its chairs, HB

Gorgeous teal antique French bench in this elegant foyer is just stunning! Atlanta Homes

A sleek blue sofa in gorgeous blue velvet, My Chic Nest

Using velvet on a statement piece like on this gorgeous French chair has given me a few good ideas, Mary McDonald

This dark moss green is one of my absolute faves, then add the tufting+ perfection!
You know I love this pictures, velvet dining chairs AND blue and white porcelain ginger jars= perfection! Nantucket showroom

?A velvet headboard….gorgeous! House Beautiful
Creamy velvet……absolutely gorgeous! Bobbi Smith
Gorgeous in gray….love the gray velvet sofas in this beautiful room.

?Purple never looked so good! AD

?
Adore this banquette with large wide tape trim…stunning! Bayon Contessa

Curtains in a rich velvet are definitely a true luxury….love the soft gray here, Houzz

?Mary McDonald is a huge fan and in this vibrant room, the result is dazzling!

So..what do you think? Does this want to make you run out and cover something in velvet? Or maybe you already are a fan? Do you love it as much as I do? What is your favorite way to see velvet? Color? You know I love to know your thoughts.? Have a fabulous Monday evening and start to your week!

So how is 2013 treating you so far? With the exception of my husband coming down with pneumonia, it was a wonderful holiday season. Funny,? New Years day unexpectedly ended up being one of the best days. First off, ? it was the first day in 8 days that hubs felt up to getting fully dressed and coming downstairs, then it was a continuation of our movie marathon, we watched Dances with Wolves, Meet Joe Black, Under the Tuscan Sun? and a few others, all the while I was cooking the entire day (but really loving it) I made beef stew, paninis, homemade basked mac, even small apple tarts..yes I was on a roll! My husband spent a lot of time exploring my blog and was thoroughly entertained and it was just a great family day, alongside a roaring fire, it was spent at home enjoying each others company….it was cold outside but really warm and cozy inside. So life is slowly getting back to normal after the holiday blizzard (not literal but the whirlwind). I have yet to take down any decorations…thinking I will give it another week, not quite ready to say goodbye to the magic of Christmas or the hard work I put into it:)

?

Today’s Which Would You Choose is a fun one. Roll with me here……the designer fairies have paid you a visit. Hey, its a new year…time for a change, right? They have told you that you get to have one designer of your choosing redo your entire home soup to nuts. Only catch? You cannot have any say, you are at their talented mercy and must go on a little “vacay “for a week while they work their magic. Which of these talented tastemakers would you trust to redo your entire home? Many if not most you know, but I have also included two pictures of their work that I think? represents their style. This is a tough one, though I think I have it narrowed down to two. No wait, I mean three. OK, two. Here we go…..so which would you choose!?

Bedrooms that blow me away

Good morning hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We did, it was actually pretty relaxing despite having another tournament for my son, but this one was thankfully local. We are winding down with the tournaments and I am not complaining! As we are nearing the final stages of the house, the decisions are coming at us fast and furious and I need all the attention, focus and clear thinking I can muster!?I love bedrooms and now that I am really starting to think about my own in the new house, I have been paying a lot of attention to them, how they are furnished, what kinds of bedding is used, if wallpaper is being used in the bedrooms that I tend to be drawn to, lighting, etc…..its all in the details and how those details all come together! I am drawn to softer colors, love the idea of a bedroom feeling like you have been enveloped in a cocoon of luxuriousness and serenity.?

I tend to favor the soft blues and creams but every now and then I surprise myself by being really attracted to a bedroom that is not in line with what I typically like. So today is a post about some beautiful bedrooms that for one reason or another is just very inspirational. Many different styles pictured here from casually coastal to very formal, but they are all lovely! ?I love seeing extra seating in a bedroom, whether it be a chaise lounge, a bench at the foot of the bed, a pair of love seats or a huge comfy over sized club chair and ottoman. Whats your ideal bedroom? Always love to know!

Love this super elegant and equally beautiful bedroom by Sandra Nunnerly
Love everything about this inviting and gorgeous bedroom, Jean Randazzo
Taylor Hannah designed this opulent and formal bedroom
Always like seeing the creams and the pale grays together, beautiful serene bedroom by Palms Design group
Love the way the soft muted earth tones blend so melodically here, Suzanne Tucker
How about this cream puff of a bedroom? Mary McDonald
Soft tones in a more transitional bedroom, Jan Showers
Love the softness from the white tufted headboard and all white linens, Southern Accents
Fern Santini created this elegant oasis with a glamorous touch
Something fun about this guest room, all the different patterns with a punch of color, Massucco, Warner, Miller
One of my favorite designers, Phoebe Howard created this vision in cream
I am drawn to the super soft colors here, House and Home
Grand island tropical elegance, DLGV
Really liking the dark brown in this room, Traditional Home
Beautiful fabric on the upholstered headboard, Veranda
This would be akin to sleeping on a cloud! House Beautiful
Love the all white here, Bernd Haussman
A subtle punch of pale blue in an otherwise white washed room, quite pretty! Palms Design group
Another sumptuous pale beauty, how gorgeous is this? Belclaire House
The cool grays paired with crisp white are always stunning, Sandra Nunnerly
How about this vision in white against those gorgeous very dark floors? Robert Stern
How luxurious is this cream and white confection? Mary McDonald
And in honor of Mosaic Monday here is a little recap:
Well….get any ideas? Have a favorite here? I love seeing gorgeous inspiration but admittedly it can sidetrack and overwhelm me when you have to narrow it down to ONE thing!! I feel like I am making progress however and I cannot imagine having gone through this process without the Internet, God bless bless those brains that created it some thirty or forty years ago! Hope you have a wonderful day….
