lately a lot of the photos i have been saving for the house have one thing in common: groupings of art, symmetry, and order.  all of these things are lacking in my household (especially right now since everyone in the fam is recovering from the flu)!

all such pretty spaces, but #2 and 3 with their pops of peacock are fantastic. I love that they used the colored candles in the sconces!

Y'all get well soon!

I am dying!! In the second picture with the sconces, I just got back from Round Top and an almost identical pair was there for 220 each. I KNEW I should have purchased them! I knew it, I knew it, I knew it! Now this really makes me so sad I didn't. Thanks!! :) I am about to do my Round Top post and I will email you the pics of these. Ugh!
Beautiful post. I am craving symmetry these days.

I am over the moon with the second and third photos. Peacock with the vibrant yellow, tamed down with some chocolate. The very best.

Feel better. A mama can't get sick.

Hi Shannon! Your blog has kept me company for the past few minutes and I love it. I wish my desk at home looked like the one above. So simple yet stylish! I hope you are all feeling better!

All the pictures featured have stunning detail but the turquoise candles and lamps with the animal print pillows...are over the top and really make the neutral room so unique.
