Maybe it was my recent trip to the English country or just a yearning towards all things timeless, but I have not been able to get two lovely homes out of my head. I posted a picture of one of the lush exteriors this weekend, but the inside is equally as charming. The other home is a dream in pattern. As of late, the more I see bland interiors, the more I gravitate toward images of plush fabric, rich antiques, and elegant intimacy.
Both of these houses just spoke to me, and I had to share to keep us all chicly inspired. Remember it is not about what looks good today, it is about what looks good forever. I want that to be my decorating rule of thumb. No jokes about it. Happy April!
