A Passion For Interiors
Carolyne Roehm

(all images from A Passion for Interiors)

This beautiful book is filled with passionately decorated rooms.
Elegant. Refined.
Polished & dressed perfectly.

Page after page of beautifully decorated spaces.

My daughter and I were shopping the small local bookstore for a book for her
when we walked past the one half wall of interior design books they had.
Of course I stopped to browse.
Red being my favorite color, the jacket of this book stood out immediately.
Just look at that gorgeous bold red with the pristine glossy white~ beautiful.

I picked it up and thumbed through & was in love with
page after page of beautiful rooms.

Carolyne Roehm's rooms are decorated with a style and flair similar
to a well-dressed woman.
Her rooms are elegant, luxurious and pulled together
but comfortable and welcoming.
After all~ she worked with Oscar De La Renta...
so you know the girl has some style!

This book is definitely a wonderful book to look to for classic inspiration for your spaces.
Her home is grand and her furnishings and spaces very well appointed (and expensive)
but her designs are a great inspirations.

If you are looking for elegant, traditional, beautiful spaces
decorated with passion to inspire you
this is a must have.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
I have been feeling kind of yucky the past several days
but am starting to get some pep back &
worked a little on painting those french doors yesterday.
Hoping to get that finished up and shared soon!

Happy Monday Everyone!
