sophisticated mix

image found on cote de texas
 
I'm always after a good mix of styles. But it's so hard to get right.
I thought this one was terrific - probably because I'm crazy for a library/dining area combo.
Grisaille wall mural, chippy old chairs, cream hide rug and tulip-style table...and books, books, books!

The room looks fabulous and it works so well. When I've tried this it ends up looking like I didn't know which way I was going. Wonderful image.

Love this image! Great mix of styles.
and with my favorite table!
The tulip table by Eero Saarinen, is such a wonderful table that mixes with every interior style. I hope to have one someday! In the mean time, I just incorporate into my interiors I design for clients.

It is the Saarinen table (want!) and the wall hanging that tie it all together! (I think).

Happy, happy end of the year wonderful Donna! You are a dear.

Look at me, being the odd man out! LOL! I love the entire room BUT I would have used a plexiglass table, like this one...
