Spring in Chicago

It finally feels like Spring here in Chicago! The Chicago Home and Garden Show is in full swing and the dyeing of the river green for St. Patrick's Day, a Chicago Tradition. A million possibilities this year, what fun to imagine our yards and outdoor spaces in full bloom.  The calender is telling me spring is here, the view from my window tells me we will have one more cold spell. Take a look at what we found this week.

More Farrow and Ball: Ringwold wallpaper. Absolutely beautiful. The Karelian cupboard in dove is nice as well. The mix of platinum and gold, vintage and new made a statement. The next two samples have the same qualities, smooth vs. textural.

Interior spaces feel more luxe, warm and sophisticated, with the combination of matte flocked wallpaper on metallic ground by Jane Churchill. The trellis design illustrates both traditional and contemporary depending on the quantity.

Here is another example of texture. From Colefax and Fowler. Damask in bronze. Reminds me of the cut velvet we made back in college.

Silver and Dove Gray walls denote high glamor. Toned down with a mix of surfaces and textures, makes it comfortable. The bedroom designs wonderful with a reclaimed headboard in silver. Bronze lighting, and gold ribbon suspension. An Indian throw provides an accent of non-conformity. A bedroom that would be comfortable for everyone, including the kids and the dog.
