in the last few months, i have seen a few
fabulous rooms on several different blogs that
literally took my breath away.
so, i decided to do a little "research"
on the geniuses behind those rooms,
and i found:
(aren't they both stunning?)
a mother daughter dream duo
(Mary Ruth Caldwell and
Lisa Caldwell Flake)
based in birmingham alabama.
(this verifies my husbands belief
that all things from alabama RULE.
i'll have to agree with him in this case.)
check out some of their work:
i love the burst of color that is introduced
this room strikes a wonderful balance
between graphic and traditional,
monochomatic and colorful,
patterned drapes and sumptuous suzani pillows!
yummy metallics really add some drama to this bedroom.
this room is absolutely gorgeous.
notice the houndstooth on the bench?
i wonder if the homeowner is a crimson tide fan?
i love the large lamps, the back of the bookshelves painted dark,
and the trim on the bottom of the matching sofas.
this room has a masterful stroke of texture.
again, a subtle and sophisticated use of color that
i find so appealing...
that metallic wallpaper is beautiful balanced against the
marble...and check out the gothic detail on the cabinet fronts!
what a gorgeous portfolio!
