Monday seems to be looming over me a bit this morning. I've got another busy day with design meetings, furniture deliveries, some web-site work, and a long opera rehearsal this evening. whew. I'm amazed at how quickly my calendar tends to fill up. lol.
So, this morning calls for the big guns. A flip through the new Veranda is going to be a necessity over breakfast. And look at what I found - this incredible Betty Burgess designed home just down the road (well, kinda) from me in Pebble Beach, Ca.
Seriously, look at the amazing floors. Who wouldn't want to spend a long evening enjoying an amazing meal and delightful company in this charming room ? The design was inspired by the owners many connections with Paris.
Regarding the pale colour palette : "Grey goes with everything." Burgess says, "and it's calm. We wanted the whole house to feel peaceful, to have texture. Grey captures the natural colors of the coast along Pebble beach. It also showcases the home's remarkable antiques and artwork, without competing."
"The home's master bath offers a real surprise - what the architect Richard Barrett calls 'minimalist modern' style - inspired by the Hotel Le Bristol in Paris. 'It's my favorite room,' says the owner. 'With all that marble and white linen, it's like being in a cloud. The light is so beautiful' "
and just to make Monday a bit better . . . how excited am I about THIS.
