Picture Perfect

I came across this living room and library recently and fell in love! It's one of those rooms that I am not trying to edit or change something. Nothing needs to be altered in my view. It has tons of books, aqua walls, beautiful floors and an amazing fireplace. The presence of these elements rank it high for me without all the other perfect pairings. And, because I am not always so helplessly attracted to interiors this vibrant, I know the mix is perfectly done.

I don't know the blog source I snatched it from (very sorry), the publication, the designer (could it be Miles Redd) or the photographer. I am hoping a savvy reader will be able to help me with the credits and details?

This weekend we will celebrating my husbands birthday, my son is coming home from college for a visit and we will have plenty of teenagers roaming the A&A interiors. Picture perfect.

  5. It is a very pretty library. I like the groundedness that the black touches bring to the ensemble. I don't believe the room was done by Miles Redd, however. Miles usually pushes things so far over the top that they ooze over the sides! lol

  6. I love the juxtaposition
    of the gorgeous gold mirror
    with the sleekness of the
    black furniture. You
    are right, the walls, the
    books....all in perfect
    harmony! Savor the wonderful
    weekend that you have planned!

  14. Lovely room, not usually a fan of this shade of blue, especially for a wall color (usually I think hospital room!) but here it really works so well! My husband's birthday was also this weekend...hope you all had a good one!
