Very nice, Chrissy! Hope your weekend is going well! I want those pillows Tracey sells sooo bad - they are so awesome! I saw Miss Tracey when I was shopping at the flea market this weekend! She is just as stylish in person as the decorating magic she shares on her blog! :)I am off for a little more junkin' - as soon as my DH gets his butt out of the basement working out & watching his Law n' Order reruns!

Lovely job Chrissy, I especially love the small cushion behind the couch...with the faux stamp on it and the old print on the back of the chair near the phone. Robx

The feeling evokes... come in and be comfortable! Looks like a perfect place for a girlfriend afternoon of laughing, sharing, and enjoying petit fours.

This is my favorite ivy plant whether real or faux. It just adds the perfect touch to the old phone and book.

Chrissy, it looks amazing, I love the sort of Pottery Barn feel of it. I also have one of Tracey's large Poste France pillows, it's on my guest bed and is quite sizeable. My friend is French and he said it reminds him of French mail bags.
You're a wonderful designer, wish I lived closer;)
Shannon, your home looks amazing!

Chrissy, you did an incredible job with her den! It's very nice with the new furniture and great accessories. Tracey's pillows are of course gorgeous. Love it all!

Hey Chrissy! Hope you had a great weekend! Has spring come to you? Here it is in full bloom and we enjoy it very much.

Of course, you could not say no to help your friend to decorate. It's really fun to be asked something like that and it is also a challenge to work with completely different environments. Her home is nicely decorated. However, I miss maybe a little more of the romantic that you have. But of course we are all different with different needs.

Sending you a big hug:)
Take care my friend, Aina

Looks gorgeous, Chrissy! It's so fun to decorate for friends and family, isn't it? I find that I'm less critical because they love it so much! I tend to knit pick my own home to death. I love the Ikea sofa and bravo to your John for the awesome furniture!

It is always so fun to see your decorating skills in action. Everything looks the furniture and the pillows are perfect!
