On board the cruise with the architect
Isn't this bathroom cozy! a great place to take a bath -LOVE those mirrors!!
These must be from Charlotte Moss, she is known for her red leather covered vogue collection -I would love to do this with my collection of 'world of interiors' or 'architectural digests'!
A bedroom ala Marie Antoinette! This would be a beautiful B&B room! That copper bathtub is fantastic and the dusty blue walls with the red lampshades is beautiful!

What a pretty dining room! I love the mirror, even if it is a little small in scale
This open first floor is beautiful!!this guest bedroom is really cute!
I love white bathrooms! -the window bench is a cute idea!
My 2 favorite scents are geranium and lavendar. I know, geranium doesn't sound like it would smell good -but it DOES! Target is still light on different 'flavors' and had mostly lemon verbena (which I do NOT like!) but I was able to get some laundry detergent in lavendar. In the past I was getting Mrs. Meyer's products at whole foods which carries a very large variety of products and scents. They also come with great packaging so you're not stuck looking at an ulgy box or bottle. I think Martha would approve!!

interior shots, looking up
My favorite project exhibited was Villa Oivala by Oiva Kallio from 1924. The summer house, sited on the edge of a lake, had a wall of french doors facing the lake as well as a completely open courtyard with all the rooms off of it. The 'front door' merely brought you into the open courtyard and not into the house. The wall of french doors could open letting breezes into the courtyard and opening the space to the view. Back views of the model showing the open french doors to the lake & view and the interior courtyard
