Love it! I love your "objects" - where did you get the white bowl with the drippy faded colors? BTW- I have that same owl - no wonder I like your aesthetics ;) Favorited!

I love this space. It's so bright, and the art seems to intuitively refer to the timelessness of a space like this- modest, clean, and hospitable. You CAN in fact eat at that table with those chairs, ps.

Also, I have that same owl, but I keep my umbrella in it at my front door!

Thanks for sharing.

Fresh and lovely. And yes, where did you get that white bowl with the drippy colors and the owl vase? I love the grouping of pictures above the settee. Could you tell me about the blue and white picture with the couple strolling in front of what appears to be their mansion?

Hi, thanks for commenting everyone. The drippy bowl was on sale at Anthroplogie a few years ago. The owl vase is a bit smaller than the owl umbrella stand, and I got the owl vase at Home Goods for a steal. The flowers are real, but when I don't have the flowers in the owl vase, I have a bright canary gold porcelain jar with lid that goes in the middle of the table full o'cookies. The blue and white picture is hand stitched and vintage, it was purchased at the Chelsea Flea Market.

I love the cozy yet modern feel of this room and your picture arrangement! Definitely a favorite of mine! I think the plastic white chairs are a bit large/clunky for the room though.
