One of my dearest friends in Rye is moving back to her native Canada next week. So in between house showings and coordinating her movers, she let me (us) into her beautiful home, so we can see how to “show a house” for selling.
She even “styled” the bistro table outside the kitchen window. Chairs in her signature color!
The family room has pops of orange – love the Hermes blanket – and loads of books!
The “fur” covered ottoman makes a comfy spot for relaxing by the fire or watching t.v. The oversize map of London (another spot they’ve lived) balances out the proportions of the room.
Every girl needs her space ~ and this is hers ~ the living room. Cream furniture, Moooi chandelier and pink dress painting (a gift from her husband) create a room that is feminine without being fussy.
A black and white photo of a mod (Burberry clad) Kate Moss is another nod to their time in London!
Here’s a view of the living room, looking toward her husband’s office. Doesn’t every man want a room to call his own?
If you’ve been thinking of doing a room for your fella, take a look. With the grand zebra print chair and a view of not 1, but 3 computer screens, your guy can watch the market, the tournament and still update his ipod playlist!
My friend’s husband is not only tech savvy, he’s music savvy ~ his collection of guitars (yes, he plays) became the “art” in the room.
Against a dark ceiling, which matches the walls, this silver candelabra chandelier really stands out.
All of the furniture in the dining room belonged to her great-grandmother. She simply had it refinished to bring out its natural beauty.
