Serious beauty, serious chandeliers!

Although, I would be perfectly content with a couple of those stone/concrete spheres.

Happy weekend, my friend.

Last year there was a spread in a Dutch shelter magazine called More Than Classic with the exact same house. I thought it was in Belgium, the people who owned it also had a store. Totally gorgeous!

Grove House Design said...

Wowzer. I am in love. Serious, head over heals love. There is not an element here that's less than perfection.

Can homes get jealous? Cuz mine's going to feel pretty slighted if I don't stop sneaking back for looks at these pictures.

Mona Thompson said...

You never disappoint. Definitely serious beauty. I will be saving some of these. In fact I used a few of the images I have saved of yours in the past today. "Time worn". I know we both love that. Have a great weekend. Mona

Charlotta Ward said...

OMG yes there is indeed! I am risking 'death by drooling over electronic equipment' here!

No 1. I love how the detail keeps on emerging the longer I look. That little house next to the stack of mags is so cute. Loving the colours in this room!
No 2. Glass domes..aaahh, can one ever have too many? I think not!
No 4. Ooooh, you know how I LOVE candles.. and smokey mirrors. Dramatic and divine!
No 5. They must have peaked into your house and copied your idea here!!.. :)
No 6. White wins me over every time. Gorgeous breakfast room!
No 8. This is when the drooling got serious! Just look at those metal drawer units on either side of the cabinet.. Mamma Mia!
No 9. Need I say it..?! The Mirror!!

Oj oj oj! as we say in Sweden..!
You make my day every time Donna!

xx C
