Beautiful Room Designs that Caught My Eye

I hope you all are having a great day...and for those of you in in the "cold" part of the country I hope you are staying warm. We just keep getting snow every few days in south central Ky, along with frigid temps. I am so ready for spring. No matter how much I talk about the weather mother nature will not change just for me. :-)  I do have a bone to pick with Punxsutawney Phil.

Moving on... I have several room design ideas for you today. And everything is gorgeous, and traditional. I love this pretty coffee table...and the room full of light.

I like the way you can update a traditional room by adding in one or two new modern-ish items (yellow lamp, modern night table) to refresh the whole room design. It keeps "traditional" from looking old and dowdy.

For some photographs of gorgeous upscale homes visit J.K.Kling Designs. Oh my! Click on "Portfolio" to see the choices. Then click on the picture to open that home. http://www.jkkling.com/  Everything is gorgeous! Yes, I know I already said that. 


Have you heard? Wall paper is back! Do you think you will wallpaper any walls in your house, or are you still stripping off the old paper? 


These next pics of Trad Home rooms caught my attention for different reasons.  See what you think. 

Are they too "out there" for your traditional sensibilities or do they make you like the new updated traditional a little more? 

I am calling these rooms, traditional with sass! I mean look at how "cool" these rooms are.

I feel that I am in an old traditional house (wood trim, crown moulding, high ceilings, etc)...but that it has been jazzed up with fabrics, art, paint treatments, flooring choices, accessories, etc. 

How do you like the traditional four poster bed that is jazzed up with modern posts. 

As for me, I still think I prefer the rice carved bed posts, but I can appreciate this modern twist. 

What do you think about the over sized print on the drapery fabric? 

The mirror...yes, I would use that in my traditional home. I love mirrors!

I love this dormer nook...and especially the horse weather vane. I want one!

As you all probably know...I am crushing on powder blue right now. One of the Pantone colors of the year is "serenity" blue...that is very close to powder blue.

I was visiting the website of the new design firm Anderson Patrick in Lexington... and I found the popular blue that I love. 

Kristy Anderson, one of the partners, has helped me with fabric selections when she worked at a fabric store (in Lexington.) She wanted to do more creative designing, so she and Davida Patrick opened their own design studio on Winchester Road.  

Take a look at some of their pretty room designs.

One of the Pantone colors of the year is "serenity" blue...which is very close to powder blue. I am glad to know that I am "into" a stylish color, i.e. I am stylish. :-)

I really like this table vignette! 

For my friends who love blue and white chinoiserie, this ph0to may cause you to Ahhh.

I love this cute window treatment. Look, no rod to fuss with. I still like to dress my windows, even though many designers are leaving them bare. 
If you would like to keep up with their design ideas...they are also on Instagram.  Anderson Patrick Design Studio. It will be fun to watch this new, young design studio grow. 

I hope you enjoyed these design inspirations as much as I did. I am following all on them on Instagram, my newest fun addiction. :-) 

Thanks for Visiting!
