Amanda Brooks (former creative director of Barney’s and author of I ♥ Your Style and Always Pack A Party Dress )has her England home featured in the new Arch Digest and it’s such a fun, personal, collected space that really speaks to the beauty of individual style. I love that this space looks lived in, loved and decorated over time. Nothing too perfect or precious, just a gorgeous celebration of this family’s particular brand of cool. I’m so over perfection. In so many ways. In a world ripe with Pinterest-worthy everything and Instagram-filtered reality I crave more realness from people. This home is a nice example.
This makes me a tad obsessed with the idea of getting a striped chesterfield sofa for some reason.
Love the mix of rustic, modern and natural.
That stove and those windows!

Beams and boots for days.
Heavenly. Doesn’t this look so peaceful?
Ok, so they are perfect. *Sigh*
I tried to gather some items to create a space with a similar vibe…. but a look like this can’t be bought. Only created over time.
On the other hand, when I saw this home in Elle Decor I screamed “WHAT IN THE GOLDEN GIRLS RETIREMENT VILLAGE HELL IS THIS?”
I recognize the hypocrisy of this reaction with my statement above, but in all seriousness… Elle Decor? Really???? I just so don’t get this look.
