the beauty of imperfection.




maybe its the juxtaposition of what's going on- the things placed together that really shouldn't be there.....they just equal perfection in my book. the white dress w/ the rain boots, that elegant kitchen w/ stainless steel cabinets (might be my favorite kitchen), the old medicine cabinet with the addition of jadeite pulls, and that screen- well, it's just amazing. period. they all make a space seem perfectly imperfect. and that's the way i like it.

Loving the mirrored screen! Want it- but can't decide which room would be lucky enough to have it.

It's the unexpected juxtapositions that make things feel alive. If everything is really in it's place it feels flat and unrealistic. You can feel the essence of the person that placed the out-of-the-ordinary piece and said 'Perfect.'

Hilarious! I am addicted to RZ. The skinnier she gets , the higher the heels. She was holding on to Brad for dear life walking up Coco's stairs:)
