Many Mirrors

via trace

I love the use of white with just a splash of colour,
the mirror brings in heaps of light.
I also really like the perspex table it just opens up the room so much.

What a beautiful room perfect for a
honeymoon, you would never want to leave.
I love the placement of the Mirror.

Everything about this room is perfect!
The mirror is just beautiful becoming a focal point
but also pulling everything together in perfect harmony.

I thought this bathroom mirror was so Divine I would love to have something like this in my home.
Even the cornices are gorgeous with the little
animals I think they're lambs maybe and
you can get just a glimpse of the chandelier so cute.

Everything about this image is soo beautiful to me.

The use of colour, texture and light is perfect.

Another inspirational bathroom mirror, a little quirky but so
cute with the love heart pictures and tiny porcilain ornaments
on the little shelves.
I love the detail around the sink, very old fashioned.

Another great use of a large mirror in an interesting space.

I must say a bit of a sucker for large windows too.

All I can say is white and green is perfection to me.

Is this real or just a dream?
So beautiful, my cielings are this high I'm so lucky!

Heavenly stairways.

I'm so curious as to where this is, it looks all English cottage garden

but from the Architecture on the building I'm thinking it could be in India?

Whimsical and romantic... Perfection!

This is just an absolutely beautiful space. X

Very Glamourous and in an Ideal world this would be my home. sigh...

The Spiral stairs are a bit of an obsession as my clever Husband will be making some for our planned renovations, to run from the Library down to the open plan games/rumpus area.

This is just some extra Laundry inspiration for me as we will be renovating soon.

I love how this area looks like it could be inside or outside or infact a combination of both.

This reminds me a little of the entry to the appartment
where Gregory Pecks character lived in the movie Roman Holiday

The use of colour in this stairway is just georgous.

When I started compiling this entry I got so terribly side-tracked I forgot what I was doing!
The reason
If you get any inpiration from this post at all I can assure you you will love
Please take a look, it will certainly open you eyes to something we use and take for granted everyday,
The humble Stairway.

Where do your books live?

I Love this Library, how they've set up the table with it's little stacks of books and the beautiful vase of flowers which compliment the colour of the table coverings.
It's given a potentialy masculine room a subtly femenine touch.

I'm pretty sure most of us have seen this image a dozen times over, but I would love to have something like this in my home one day.
My cielings are almost high enough for it, Lucky hey!

There is something so special about book shelves around a door way,
I love the idea of reaching up to grab your favourite book on the way out into the garden to sit in the afternoon sun for a good read.
Ahh Bliss.

This image gave me some inspiration for my own bookcase.
I Love the use of stacks of books and special objects in between photo's and novels.

This to me would be the absolute best use of a long hallway.
I love the little window seats for a quick reading stop.

This is quite a beautiful way to recycle I believe this was a door and it has been turned into a bookcase, really lovely.

Oh to dream! I think this is quite magical and would love to have a loft or studio big enough to recreate something like this.
I'm thinking or doing something similar for my laundry when we renovate. Ah the posibilities.

The colour used in this bookcase is as much a feature as the books and collectables on it's shelves.
Just stunning!

Where do your books live?
