I'm so inspired by this lovely living room that is at once delicate and ecclectic. Not an easy combo to achieve, I might add.
Tami Ramsay of Tami Ramsay Design and I met on Pinterest and are quickly becoming fast online friends. I adore her design sensibility and dare to say that the feeling is mutual. One of the things that I appreciate about her, aside from her insane creative talent, is her openness. In this itty-bitty, yet simultaneously vast world of online design and social media there's a whole heck of a lot of people who don't take the time to stop and say hello. It often feels like everyone is so busy going a million miles a minute doing their own things that they are hardly able to slow down to appreciate the very thing we all have in common - a love of beautiful interiors. And yes, I am guilty of this at times too. Tami reached out to me and has been a total breath of fresh air in the midst of all the chaos of the online design world.
OK, enough of that little love rant and on to her crazy good design talent! So, the room featured above is Tami's very own living room. Don't you kinda wish it was yours? It's ok, I do too. Let's discuss...
NO. 1: That chaise! Tami and I first met online in a discussion over that killer vintage grey cane chaise that she was reupholstering. It turned out so unbelievable after she reupholstered it in Hable Construction's Aventurine Rope. She effortlessly pairs it with a couple of my all time favorite fabrics, Kelly Wearstler's Edo Linen & Sea Urchin (on the sofa opposite the chaise), both from Lee Jofa Groundworks.
NO. 2: The soft pale pink feminine walls are Benjamin Moore's Paisley Pink. The perfect shade of not-too-sweet yumminess.
NO. 3: The shaggy vintage Beni Ourian Moroccan rug (Note: if you want one for yourself, see my previous post about Maryam Montague of MyMarrakesh - she's the lady with the ultimate stash of these gorgeous rugs).
NO. 4: The beautiful original artwork gracing the walls that lead up to the barrel vaulted ceiling.
NO. 5: The relaxed Belgian linen roman shade + drapes on brass rods that are original to the house. So cool!
NO. 6: The symmetry. It's so subtle you hardly notice it, which I like, but this room is very nicely symmetrical indeed. It makes the space feel calm and orderly despite all of the pretty things you can look at every which way you turn.
Just one last shot of that chaise, please.
