Looks I Love.....

some pretty rooms & ideas

very interesting rug, carpeting on stairway, drapery fabric & chandelier

over time I've collected many many pieces of antique cut glass & vintage glassware,
silver hollow ware, and tableware of all types...
this reminds me of prettiness we often don't take time to create any longer...

no words

love the walls and all the natural tones & mixtures of textures

open windows & doorways, fresh flowers always,
and this lovely fireplace surround...wonder where they found this...

antlers & peonies, bronze chandelier & tall footed candlesticks,

just too much fun not to love,
nasturtiums remind me of beautiful English gardens...

those hydrangea & this perfectly tended garden space

always need a bit of whimsy, don't we?

perfect guest powder room

& this?  what can I say except I love it.

my idea of the most perfect room...
big room, high high high ceilings, lots of light...
but I wouldn't use those high-backed chairs, they don't look comfy at all

don't laugh...there once was a closet like this in a home for sale in Houston,
I kid you not.
remember, around here there is a whole lot of land, and there are some
enormous & beautiful homes...

just too wonderful

wouldn't you love to own one of these?

& finally, a Mint Julep or could it be Iced Tea?
anyway, I'll have one right now if you don't mind...

  1. Oh, thank you for such a wonderful post! Love all the natural tones!

  2. love those linen shoes but in a lower heel -smile-.
    my favorite color combination is black and brown but my favorite color is green.
    go figure, eh?

  3. Just beautiful Marsha......all of my favourite colours. I love the bust with nasturtiums coming out of her head !! I must try that next summer although, whenever I grow nasturtiums, they get covered in blackfly !! XXXX

  4. So many beautiful images, Marsha. Love the chandelier in the first image and the powder room...gorgeous!!

  5. Lovely inspiration - a few of these are in my own files as well!!

  6. Omg those! And the first room is one of my favorites ever. Really, loved all of these images!

  7. Marsha, such gorgeous images. Love every one!
    Have a nice evening.

  8. Beautiful neutrals and patina pretty...I'm getting weak in the knees for all the neutrals. They are so connected to historic Europe and I love them more everyday! Thank you, Marsha!

  9. I child live with every one of these.I adore thatbsuspended staircase in the first photo. My entry stair was supposed to be like that but my builder couldn't figure it out. What a closet! Now that is a way to use up some space after kids move out. The pedestal sinks in the bathroom are wonderful too. Have a great day

  10. Dear Marsha,
    Every single image here is gorgeous! Love all the neutrals ! Even the shoes here are so beautiful!!
    Have a great week Marsha!!

  11. Nothing not to love...and that beautiful!

  12. What gorgeous rooms, especially the over-the-top bathroom. And yes, I do believe the closet in Texas. They say everything's bigger in Texas and they mean it too don't they.

  13. Gorgeous neutral palette, beautiful images, thanks for sharing.
    Love the music, too.
    Warm hugs to you.

  14. Gorgeous as always. I get carried to "another place" with your images and fab background music; perfect escapism xx

  15. Love the pictures you love! The closet is to die for...we never have enough room! All the mirrors are great too! I love mirrors! Thanks for sharing.
    Blessings My Friend,

  16. This table couldn't be prettier! So original, natural and yet so chic!




Please know how much I value your comments. I read every single one and do hope you will take the time to leave your thoughts. I think InstaGram with the Emojis have take a lot away from blogging, but I love IG too.
