More From My New Home
Top: the view from my bed - through the windows, I can see majestic willow trees.
Middle: a huge mirror I found on Craigslist, with its curvy frame
Bottom: when he's not at the window, keeping an eye on the squirrels, birds and dogs roaming through what he considers his garden, Benjy likes to sit on this big chair - its matching ottoman is somewhere else in my room. Its color echoes that of the neighboring red trunk I bought recently, where you'll always find some fresh flowers and a book about Leonardo Da Vinci, propped up to grace us with the master's divine sketch on the cover.
Usually, I like decorating my places with wood furniture and sleek metal, all in clean lines, but in this 1940's (?) beach bungalow kind of studio, it didn't seem right, so I decided to go for a very sparsely furnished place, but with a pop atmosphere, hence the roundish shapes and all that red.
Make sure to come back for more in the days to come - I'll be showing off my scarlet mannequin as well as details from my kitchen and more...
