I am undone....





Not everything in the October, 2010 House Beautiful feature of this NYC apartment resonated with me. Some of the mixes of English Country/Indian/Contemporary took me a while to warm to. But when I saw this fabric-covered desk, it was LOVE at first sight. It looks just like my West Elm parsons-style desk. 

I am so doing this!

BTW, do you have a Wrangler? I saw one in your sidebar. We just bought a '10 4 door white Wrangler and I'm in LOVE!

Love the mosaic in the second pic. I hope you'll show us your desk when you're finished!

I'm with you: it's not totally my style, but I do appreciate the softness that the pink fabric brings to the space.

Hope you had a lovely weekend, Donna, and thank you for your kind comment yesterday. xo

I really liked the mix.....it is so integrated and fun. Not stiff or boring at all.

Beautiful! I was not sure what to think of that hippie patterned issue either. Felt a little upscale Domino to me. Like Mother of Domino.

Love Your Homes said...

I see what you mean....sometimes it takes me ages to get into things, usually I'm short of the one to bring it all togehther. Once I found the missing element , it doesn't take long to complete.

I see you have a stone guy too!

I'd love to see the Parson's desk redone with textile! It could go into many spaces of a home and look fab!

That fabric desk is very special, but then so is the painted chest of drawers in the first photo.
Thanks for stopping by

About the Wrangler...we traded in a lifted bells and whistles red '96 Wrangler and my 09 Jeep Commander for the '10 4 door Wrangler! But I'm LOVIN the wind in my hair AND the lower car payment and insurance! ;-)

You do it first and then we will all follow after you have worked out the kinks :)

I agree... that fabric covered desk in HB was the best! Can't wait to see what you do.
