Room of the Day

Life is very busy these days so I’ll have to keep today’s post short and sweet. I’m working on a couple of interesting design projects (I’ll write more about that later) and while looking for inspiration I found this wonderfully small & chic library. When I’m pressed by time, Pinterest can be a such a dangerous place for me – one pin leads to another and before I know it, I’m down down the rabbit hole and two hours seem like two minutes. I’m pretty sure you all know what I’m talking about! 🙂

Since my blogging schedule is quite flexible and I only share what I love and inspires me at the moment, today’s post is about this cottage library designed by Ken Fulk. Dissecting the details of beautiful rooms is one of my favorite things to do – I learn something new and understand better  what I like, and why I like it.


So to start with this room, it has a narrow shape with windows on three out of four walls – tricky to design and make functional! What I love is that Fulk took advantage of those stunning wrap around ocean views and embraced the room’s quirky character by covering the walls in Benjamin Moore’s Dash of Curry. Any color looks more vibrant in the presence of its complement and the complementary scheme of blues and orange is particularly invigorating, a great way to frame the water views.

The decor is a mix of things old and new. The headboard and wing chair are antiques found locally; the bed is covered in an edited selection of indigo fabrics and grain sack pillows that look pretty, comfortable and casual. I also love the artwork displayed on each side of the daybed, it adds another layer to an already stunning room. Don’t you think?

    I remember this room from one of the shelter magazines, maybe Elle Decor, a couple years ago. I loved it then and love it just as much now. Its at once cozy and expansive with that magnificent view to the horizon. Perfection! I must note the paint color, stunning for the right place.

      Hi Jolain, thanks for stopping by! Indeed, this beautiful home was in Elle Decor a few years ago and it has retained its original charm. Good design does that…
