Room Envy

Coastal Living, designer/owner Amanda Lindroth, photography by Deborah Whitlaw Llewellyn



Recently I was visiting Harmony and Home and saw one of my favorite rooms ever featured in Coastal Living. Love the blue/gray bookshelves and mirror, the slipcovered furniture, the oversized lamps and of course, the parasol!


How did the parasol come to be?:
"In this house, the decor depends partly on serendipity. A zany Balinese parasol resides above the living area's inviting down sofa. Says Amanda, "I bought a dozen of them to use at my sister's 40th birthday party, and on the night of the event someone stuck it over the sofa." (excerpt from original article written by Marion Laffey Fox)

That is quite a room to envy. I love the parasol. You just want to sit there and lounge all day.
