Happy New Year everyone! I can’t believe the snow has lasted so long here (at least two weeks now). It was lovely to have a white Chritmas… but oh what chaos it has caused everywhere!
I’m always of a mixed mood come January. On one hand the start of a New Year feels fresh and liberating but on the other, all I can think about are dark, chilly mornings and sticking to my boring New Year’s resolution- a diet!! I’d love to hear your New Year’s resolution… perhaps it’s a little less cliche than mine?!
Anyway, here’s a bit of colour to cheer us all up! This stunning four-story town house overlooking the Potomac River in Virginia belongs to US politicians Mary Matalin and James Carville.
As you can see, orange, red and pink dominate the colour palette throughout the home. You’d think that these colours wouldn’t work together but it just goes to show that almost anything is possible in terms of interior design. The lounge ceiling is covered in a pattern of small reflective gold-leaf squares. So warm and inviting… and the different shades and patterns work perfectly together. And how pretty is the chaise longue?
