Our interior design continues — our designer, Kelley Proxmire, recently came by to discuss our formal living room plans and we are orienting the space around the gorgeous painting seen above and a beautiful green rug we purchased at Jayson Home a few years ago. I temporarily styled the table above with a couple of coffee table books and accessories we had on hand, but I am eyeing a few different coffee table books that might fit better with the color scheme, especially this gorgeous Hirst book and maybe this Kelly Wearstler? I also absolutely love this Sargent painting (its image really captures some of the sisterhood I wrote about here) and it would be fun to work it into the stack.
One of the reasons I chose Kelley as our interior designer is that she is not afraid of color and is known for her pattern mixing. I like bold, different, interesting! The finds below reflect that mentality. Like, why have a boring folding chair when you can have this one?! And why have a standard lamp when you can have this rattan one ($75?!)?

I am hoping to buy a few items for my son’s room in the coming weeks…really love this side table, this train table (grows with the child — just add the longer legs!), anything in Katie Ridder’s beetlecat print, this new crib sheet, and some sort of large swivel chair to read books in…perhaps something like this. I need to think a bit more on these items but his room is due for some sprucing.
P.S. If your day has gone haywire — it can be helpful to remember that you are probably where you need to be.
P.P.S. If you’re battling perceived criticism: think of the howling wolves.
P.P.P.S. Recent Amazon finds.

Coming in late to ask a quick question — in your photo collage, there’s a loopy fruit bowl at no. 5 that doesn’t seem to have a corresponding link (unless I am missing it?!) Could you let me know the source, if it’s not too much trouble?
Thank you! 🙂
Thank you for letting me know!! Here is the proper link —
Updating the post to reflect this, too!
Thank you so much!
I would love to see/read about more of your decorating journey! I also love designers who are not afraid of color and pattern. I am so incredibly bored of the all white/gray/beige/oatmeal palettes that seem to dominate so many interiors these days, particularly on social media. I suspect that it’s because that is more accessible to the untrained amateur, whereas pulling off being daring with color requires a higher level of expertise. On a related note, I have been contemplating the use of the word “traditional” as it relates to decor (and fashion) these days. It definitely implies something specific, yet is actually so vague in and of itself. Like, whose traditions??
Hi Anna! Interesting point. I have always felt like “traditional” is generally used as the opposite of “modern,” whatever that floating concept means. I wonder if there are more technical terms of art among the designer set? Like, grounded in eras and cultures.
Will share more as I go!!
Love everything!!! and thanks a lot now I’m not going to able to get that fabulous St. Frank’s tray out of my head, ha!
