serene elegance {frank ponterio}

If you have been reading for a while you will know that this past April on a trip home to visit my family I was lucky enough to tour the Lake Forest Showhouse. Although the entire house was stunning there was one room in which I completely fell in love, the conservatory designed by Frank Ponterio. Serene, elegant, natural, incredibly styled...well, I could write a novel on why I loved this room but I will just show you pictures instead!


Do you have a space that brings you an instant calm?

Oh, that feeling of instant calm is divine. I have a spot in Petoskey, on my grandparents lake. It's amazing!

I LOVE this dining table and the trees are just perfection, setting off the entire space. Hoping you will pop over and give me your advice on white floors today over at trustyourstyle...

Oh I would have loved to have walked through this stunning room - the windows, the ceiling, the trees, the raw timber table. Lovely, lovely, lovely!

Beautiful. I love my deck... but there are only a few nights a year here in Alabama that we can enjoy it.

My bathtub always brings me instant calm!
