Pretty Papered Dining Rooms

Imagine these designer dining rooms with painted walls.  

Yes, still beautiful.  However, the addition of wallpaper in these rooms adds a whole different dimension, detail and warmth.  

As lovely as they are in the daylight, they must be dreamy by candlelight.  

Totally dreamy........

Pretty is Back

This beautiful Dallas home decorated by Cathy Kincaid is a real delight to pore over.

The trelliswork is a wonderful addition to the interiors as it gives a feeling of bringing the outdoors in.  Also, the color chosen for the wall behind the trelliswork gives the room a very calming feeling. Apparently, this house was originally a Tudor with very dark interiors and dark woodwork throughout.  The transformation is spectacular.

This family has kids and dogs, so although the interiors may appear to be a little formal, in actuality all the rooms are well lived in.........a total English country ambience.


The solarium where the family entertains.

Hand painted floor and high gloss ceiling.

Egrets on palm wall bracket.

Notice the high gloss ceiling.

A small dining table in bay window of dining room.


Extension of solarium.

Two storey glass wall behind floating staircase floods the area with light.

Such a cozy master bedroom.

Rooms in Bloom

Good morning, Everyone!

It's a bit overcast here this morning, so I immediately thought of colorful flowers as a pick me up.......which led me to my pinterest boards to pick out some of my favorite rooms in bloom.

Most of these rooms have been done by a bevy of the world's best designers.  Some are from years ago and some are contemporary. Most of these rooms are very, very traditional and some are what is referred to as new traditional.

And all are gorgeous, charming and all enveloping!


I fell in love with this room back in the 90s when I first saw it in Traditional Home and I still love it!
Designed by Gary McBournie.

The bedroom of Daniel Romauldez.

The New York living room of the late Mark Hampton and Duane Hampton
Since renovated.  Isn't it scrumptious?  Like stepping into a flower garden!

A cottage bedroom!

A contemporary bedroom by Cathy Kincaid......just lovely!

The living room of Oscar and Annette de la Renta.....beautiful!

Anthony Baratta's skilled design.

And Charlotte Moss' bedroom.

What a cheerful living room!  Love the shades of pink!
