What's My Style in One Picture

Challenge III

Ally at "From the Right Bank" asked readers to post one photo that illustrated their style in her third annual "What's Your Style in One Picture" link party.

I chose this one...
(source unkown)

I've had this photo on my computer for quite awhile and I don't know from where I copied it. If I did...I'd certainly give credit. I love the color of the chest and the venetian mirror above it. I also adore the combination of the unusual color of the wall with the shimmery curtain and dark floors. Making it even more scrumptious - a little mercury glass and the pink in the orchid. I'm not sure what is going on in the next room and I don't want to know....but this little corner of the house is perfection.


Go over to "From the Right Bank" to view others' pictures that show their style.

*UPDATE*

Kelly over at Design Ties let me know that this photo came from her site. The room and the whole house is in New Orleans. It is the work of designer Hal Williamson. Go to Design-Ties to read all about this pretty home. Each and every room is lovely. Except, see that room off to the left? That is the kitchen! With big bold banana leaf wallpaper. I am not a fan of that but the rest of the house is to die for! I now remember seeing all of the house and thinking how awful that wallpaper was.

Be sure to go by Design-Ties to read more about the design of this home in New Orleans.

Hi, Nita! This is a beautiful little space. The colors are so pretty and the chest and mirror are exquisite. It is quite different from whatever is going on through that doorway! :) Thanks so much for participating in the challenge! It's nice to discover your blog.

I love the combination of lilac & turquoise and the silk curtains and the mirror :-)

I have to agree! If asked who this picture reminds me of I would have said you. And anyone else with great taste and talent.
