Romantic Country Rooms #3

I love black and white checks. Is there anything I don't like? Yes, orange! But that's another story. Group your furniture in a different way in your living room or family, NOT around the television as a focal point. Might be interesting!

I have a collection of fountain pens and different colors of inks. (Hmmmmm, I think that'll be another post someday.) Anyway, have you ever thought of collecting inkwells? Oh, not especially antique ones, just pretty ones at nice stores. Just a thought.

I have a beautiful sheepskin I bought in Blarney, Ireland. I gave it to my granddaughter after a while, but wouldn't it look wonderful draped over my new slipcovered sofa? I might ask for it back for a while. Maybe.

Another one of those yellow, lime and red rooms that just pop out at you. Isn't this room gorgeous?

I can never say this enough: I love yellow and red/pink rooms!!!!


  1. am loving that black and white check..only tea stained..;)

  2. Oh,my....HOW exqiusite is these interiors!!!

    Just breathtaking:-)*

    Thank you for share,my dear Friend!


  3. Connie, these places are beautiful. Have a great day my friend, T

  4. We're in total agreement on the stay at home bit; I'm a homemaker and love every minute. Dave works from home so we're together 24/7/365 and, somehow, it all works out for the good.
    I love orange, it's one of my favorite colors -grin.

  5. These rooms are wonderful and so spacious! But when I look at them through my homemaker's eye, I think, "How would you ever dust those tall ceilings?" Thanks for a peek into the luxurious.

    Thanks for popping in to see me!! There is something very comforting about doing dishes by hand! Now, don't get me wrong! I don't want to do it all the time!
    Be a sweetie,

  7. Connie, gorgeous rooms! I love black and white checks, well, anything checked, striped or polka dots, and I am happy! Okay, want to hear the orange story at some point!
