The Summer House

...great outside pavillon
...great kitchen

I am a bit or a lot of a Gypsy at heart and love to travel. I love staying in places that
exceed my expectations for what every reason - great wine, great food, great view, great company. I would love to stay at The Summer House in South Australia and I think the Great Decor would be a great reason to stay...too many greats...

Frills or Ruffles

I really love this headboard!!

Not a frill or ruffle in sight...I have been asked to design a bedroom for a girl...big deal I here you say, well I am not a girlie/girl( boys styling is more my thing) I like a mix of understated elegance with a bit of boho glam and just because I could fall asleep in any of these rooms I am hoping She can as well...

Why are Great Rooms great!

Were do you start when you love each of these Beautiful Great Rooms. Clean and uncluttered with a couple of great lamps, definitely an ottoman, an over sized coffee table or 2 and another piece of unique furniture/painting...some day I will have my own photos of my Beautiful Great Room to show you, until then I will continue collecting ideas...
