Whites and Reds

Some combinations are glorious. Some fabric too, like velvet. This home below is an expression of joy with white sofas, a beautiful burgundy chester sofa and great contrast features. The kitchen is one of my faves parts, especially the free standing storage unit. The bedroom is also very cleverly designed creating a storage headboard. 


Are you ready for the weekend? I couldn't be more excited, this has been one of the longest weeks ever so Friday afternoon couldn't come any sooner or faster!!
