not only is the light in this room absolutely divine, but im swooning over the ease with which, rustic simplicity, modern elements and overt femininity can all sit so quietly and calmly together. i love that textured bedspread and that stately gazelle head which manages not to dominate the room. did i mention my swoonieness?

a modern farm table

September 14, 2009

so im fantasizing today about not living in a tiny studio in the city, but about a big old farmhouse in the country – especially one with a long, long scrubbed wooden dining table – so that i could cook for all my friends, eat, drink wine and make general merriment – here are some images so you to can share in my little country dinner party fantasy!! ive found some lovely things to keep you occupied while your at the table too! check out these hand designed linens by elisabethbentz
as usual im loving the combinations of modern, traditional, rustic, formal and above all simple – and im finding that i just cant escape blue and white as one of my favorite combinations, it always looks fresh, crisp and clean, but there are so many possibilities! guess thats why its been a favorite for centuries –
