subdued + splendid

 Do you ever wish you could have a reversible room? One where you could flip a switch and the palette of a room would instantly either be turned up a notch or just let your eyes relax in a neutral space.  This question was sparked when I came across this adorable reversible Marc by Marc Jacobs bag -- it has a classic shape and can be worn in a pewter gray or electric blue. Although the bag looks lovely either way I decided that no, I wouldn't want such a thing to exist in the world of interiors. Color is not all there is to a room. The details, amazing light fixtures and the textures that are chosen to complement a restrained palette would get lost in a sea of Tangerine Tango or whatever the "of the moment "color may be. I know I can't imagine these rooms in bold colors, can you? Pretty jaw dropping just the way they are...

i am in love with these images! Love the stools in the last picture, the tablescape in the first and everything in the second one!
The wall with stripes is amazing! I have ever thought about using stripes 'so much', but this works!
Hallway heaven. I am in love with those stripes - too amazing. Now having a dilemma as I want to do this! Think this works so well though because of the natural light - mine is a typical Victorian House in the UK. So hallways and light don't really mix. Next time I have a grander house with more light to work on - this will be in my ideas pot!

All three of these are equally as beautiful. I love the thick striping in the hallways and the overly-wooden brown kitchen.
