Charleston Dream

Reasons why I love this room:

1) It's in Charleston. That's enough, actually. I'll take anything in Charleston.

2) It has totally stunning amazing drool-worthy hand-painted green walls...and it's St. Patrick's Day - all hail the color green (my personal choice for my own home).

3) It's a beautiful implementation of the color scheme I chose for my dining room - green, gold and purple...executed here to perfection.

4) The mix. Traditional wallpaper and a modern rug. A lucite side table and a gilded mirror. Silk drapery and a funky chandelier. This room looks young and old at the same time.

5) The coffee tables. I want them.

Hmmm....what do I not like about this room? Nothing. This is perfection for me - exactly what I love about design. I could go on and on and on and on.

Southern Living has been knocking my socks off with some pretty wonderful design features as of late. This room was featured in this month's issue and was designed by Charleston designer Jenny Keenan (clearly a genius).

  1. Purple, and Green, and Gold, Oh My! How lovely.

  2. Gorgeous! I love the rug with the wallpaper. These are totally going into my inspiration files.

  3. Love those coffee tables too. A great pulled together look. I think since Southern Accents (RIP) folded maybe Southern Living has taken on some staff and more of the design stuff than before.

  4. Your posts are always so very pretty. Thanks for sharing.

  5. That rug and wallpaper. This really is so young and fun. What a house.

  6. I love Charleston. I got married there, so it holds a very special place in my heart! The architecture there is just so amazing. This room is no exception - I really like the color scheme, it is so fresh!

  7. The coffee tables jumped out at me when I first saw this room. I need them!

  8. This is gorgeous. Love the mix!! Thanks Daniela :)

  9. you would think green and purple could look loud together, but the softness of the the hues in this room hit the right balance.
