Love the way you can pick an image - when there's so much out there, it's a real talent!
Agree - Newell Turner did this with his house as well. LOVE this space - pretty, eclectic and charming - I would be very happy here!
LOVE that bedroom and your blog!!
The wall color and the lacquered finish are divine, would love to have a room like that!
