Romantic Inspiration


image: Country Living

I've loved these chairs from the moment I turned the page in a past Country Living issue more than a year ago. The soft blue fabric is somewhat loose, a bit shabby chic. The trim is a wonderful complement to the chair style as well as the soft blue fabric. This room is definitely romantic.
I'm not sure that's how I'd characterize my style but I can imagine these chairs somewhere in my life. I like traditional but with an updated look. That's what the designs of Michael S. Smith remind me of. I'm posting this shot because It appeals to the romantic in me and... that's inspiring.

Those chairs are wonderful. I think the bare floor keeps the room from being too too much! I love it!
