Last month’s House Beautiful has a whole section which I happen to have dog-eared enthusiastically. Some pages so full of amazing ideas that I wish I could triple dog-ear it somehow. What I found so inspiring was the CT home on Bonnie and John Edelman in Connecticut (my home state, hollllaaaa). What a completely amazing, wonderful, insanely awesome example of decorating this place is. A mix of modern, traditional, vintage, new, simple and exquisite! And would you expect less from the couple- he, the president/CEO of Design Within Reach and she, a very talented photographer?
Zebra? Check. Horns? Check. Sunburst mirror? Check.
Sputnik, I love you.
Amazing gallery wall, obvi.
More tulip tables! Guess that’s a given when you run DWR.
Gorg. Love me an egg chair too.
GAH! I just keeled over dead. This picture is porn for me.
Gallery wall x a gazillion.
I mean, REALLY? This is the OUTDOOR kitchen and dining area? Can I hold my birthday party here for a fee?
Perfection. Absolute perfection. Can you imagine making s’mores and drinking wine here? I can. Just waiting for my invitation…. (crickets)
And how about Bonnie’s gorgeous equestrian photos? Who doesn’t love a large scale print of one of the most beautiful creatures on earth?
