for the last few years i’ve had a little folder on my desktop that say’s my favorite rooms. the other day i thought why not create a series on the same subject. keep in mind, these rooms aren’t necessarily design revolutions or historic marvels, and they’re mostly from the last few decades, but they are beautiful and they look comfortable- simply, they are my favorites!

as i was editing the list (you know i love a list) i realized i really do like neutral rooms that are layered with lot’s of texture- there is something inviting, warm and timeless about these spaces. and of course i’ve really never seen a blue room i didn’t love. what you’ll also notice is i’ve never really seen a jeffrey bilhuber or michael s. smith i didn’t love! i hope you love them all too!

enjoy the My Favorite Room count down! hopefully they will be your favorites too!
