Warmer Tones & Warmer Climates

 It's been remarkably cold here in New England this week, especially in Boston where rampant wind tunnels turn already single digits into negatives. Even with the heat cranked up on my radiators and swathed in hefty lumberjack/hunter grade flannel, I am still freezing in my apartment. Hopefully this ends soon? Given my icicle state, is it any surprise that I was drawn to this delightful, warm space with its gorgeous creams, blonde wood tones and pops of gold metallic? 

At first the built-in seating had me thinking this was somewhere like southern Spain or Greece, a warm vacation getaway.  In reality, while it is somewhere warmer than here, it's still in the continental US: Scottsdale, Arizona. However, I wasn't far from the mark, as the entire house was designed to emulate a rural Mediterranean farmhouse. I'm really loving the subtle pop of modern accents used in this room and throughout the home. Especially the gold drum light fixture in this image, it adds just the right amount of glamour to keep this rustic, neutral space from falling flat. Check out the rest of this stunning home here.
