So to drown my sorrows and string you along, I'm posting a collection of somewhat disparate images I've collected over the past few weeks that seem to sum up my current "style" crushes.
This little hare (above), by Renaissance painter Albrecht Durer, will soon be mine. I plan to buy and frame this print for my front hall (of course, it will end up elsewhere).
He is particularly fitting since our neighborhood is full of wild hares...you see a dozen if you go for a walk in the evening!
I also love these fabrics (below) from Designers Guild, one of my favorite drool-worthy English fabric sites. They have a wonderful historical look:
Or you can buy these beautiful fabrics, made up into charming pillows. These are in my favorite shade of brown (which reminds me of milk chocolate), a colour on which I am currently fixated!:
I am also fond of this Gustavian chair, from Country Living. I've been writing a post on neo-classical furniture for some time now, but I can't wait any longer to post this handsome beast:
I also love this little shelf and candle holder from Tracy Porter:
And the pièce de résistance, my new dining room! Just kidding - this room is by London's modern glamour decor goddess Helen Green who threw in some traditional elements just for me. Bless her timelessly sophisticated heart):
The chandelier! Those slate drapes! The architecture! Those sconces! The fireplace! The chaise! The table! The chairs! But you could remove all the furniture and I would still be happy to live in this room.
Have a great week!
