atmosphere and vibe



atmosphere...vibe....it's all about it, no?  look at these pics, can you feel it? 
oh, if I could only get this in my decor.  the soul of decorating.  the vibe.  it's like magic...the balance of color, age, texture, lighting...

                                         
                     sometimes it's as simple as a rumpled slipcover with lots of pillows




sometimes it's raw and textured ~ combined with over the top luxe ~ grounded with
smooth utilitarian and peppered with a speck of color.
just enough to make your heart sing




sometimes it's gray and white, no fuss, only muss.



sometimes chalky, moody, organic...



sometimes a story...



                                                     and sometimes weepy...


There are so many moods that we can translate through our styling..stay tuned for more.

Gorgeous Roberta
I love each and every one of them... I'd love to have the whole neutral thing going but I also need colour... I've taken to introducing colour via cushions so when i get sick of it I can change it around... these are all great though and looks so comfy and relaxing... the sofa is perfect!!

Now changing the subject, have you ever seen an Australian movie called 'The Castle'? It's a classic here... strange but funny... in fact stupid Australian humour and I'm not sure others really get it, but there is a funny funny line in that move where they use the word 'vibe'. I can't hear or read that word without thinking about the movie... ok raving on over.. hahaha

Take care xx Julie

Hello Roberta... I do believe you are a keeper of good vibes... however you choose to decorate, I know it will say "Roberta" ... I loved seeing your living room in one of your recent posts, with your tv right out in the open! Ours is too... I so love seeing a home that is truly "lived in"... xoxo Julie Marie

The vibe is peaceful - exactly the vibe I'm going for. Love it! So tranquil.
