Gone to the Animals

Anyone care to join me for a leisurely chat in this room?  This sofa is so inviting. 

Doesn't this sitting area look so comfortable and inviting?  Wouldn't you know it--it is in the home of Oprah's hair stylist--and now designer/decorator.

The entire grouping is put together quite well, in my opinion.  Although, I like things to be a bit calmer--no wallpaper or fringed sofa apron.  I do think that overall, for a new installation, the room appears "collected" as if it had been assembled over time.  

Is this a room for you?  Do you want or have a "gallery" wall--or is that too busy for your taste?

Tell me you thoughts.

Where's the Kitchen?

I really like this--a disappearing kitchen! 
Have you located all of the appliances?

Could you live with a kitchen like this?

Ahhh, Memories!

I can't get this out of my mind today.  I'm ready to go back to Blackberry Farm!

Who's going with me to Walland, Tennessee?  I'm serious.

Illumination Indecision

Always classic

I've been given too many good choices!  It's a good problem.

Warm and bright

What to do?  
Circa Lighting, don't you think you should just send me all of them?  I'd be really grateful.  

Cool simple classic

Circa Lighting was founded in Savannah Georgia.  (Doesn't that mean it has to have timeless goods?)  I've admired their products for a while now.  Isn't it time I made a purchase?


I am so impressed by the styles that are offered through Circa Lighting.  They have partnered with some of our absolute favorite designers:  Barbara Barry, Thomas O'Brien, Suzanne Kasler, and Michael S. Smith. 


So what are you thinking about these lighting options?  
Tell me what you think.  
Do you have a favorite?
