I was going through my stacks and stacks of magazines last night trying to purge some of the older random magazines that I have. That old Glamour issue I kept for one article, the Vanity Fair issue I kept because I liked one outfit, etc. etc. Then I came across two Connecticut Cottages & Garden issues I had stored away and immediately saw why I had kept these and that they were not for purging...
Umm, an amazing driftwood table paired with feed sack covered Lucite chairs?!?! Not to mention the drum shade lighting and the cozy window seat, or perfectly styled bookshelves.
Hello lovely kitchen- can I move in?
The work of Alicia Orrick is why I didn't throw the magazine away, and I am so glad I didn't. The home in Darien, CT is a memorable one with a mix of antique & new and traditional & modern, all tied in with a cool beachy feel.
With such a neutral color pallet I love the pop of red this coral chandelier brings to the dining room
Love the Lulu DK bedding
The last bedroom is my favorite- the curtains, side table, lamp, pair of Lucite benches, fur throw and headboard are so delish. Also, do I spy an I Married Adventure book on the side table? I think I do!
I am so glad I didn't throw this one away! Do you keep stacks and stacks of magazines too?
