From the Stacks: Quiet Ambience

Nov 2003 Traditional Home - The first two images are from the home of British designer Emily Todhunter and the conservatory is from the home of Jeremy Hackett. They stood out to me as designs that create a quiet, calming atmosphere.

Hope you have a great weekend - calming or otherwise, depending on your preference!

p.s. - thanks for all the lovely comments about my son's acceptance into MassArt

I just love the old images. Reminds me of when my children were younger. We tended to be a little more tedious about decoration then.
Have a nice weekend, Michele.
