Romantic interiors probably mean something different to everyone, but to me they tend to always have a foot in the past, wether because they were designed to look old and have a story to tell or because they really are. I also find that they tend to be slightly “imperfect,” and full of layers of texture and ever so slightly indulgent.
Okay, so this isn’t an interior, but isn’t this one romantic exterior? How could you not want to see the inside of this house?
Old wood floors, and iron chandelier, the space to be able to diagonally position one’s desk!
How amazing is this intricately carved and beautifully styled console?
Hope you don’t mind another exterior thrown into the mix. I grew up with Dutch doors so they’ll always be nostalgic and romantic to me.
Open shelves to show off a beautiful cream ceramics collection.
This iron canopy is what inspired this post. The molding and flowy drapes pooling on the floor clinched it too!

Exposed brick is a beautiful thing. Being a beautiful thing you can just leave it on it’s own to shine, but setting it off with great decor, lighting, and furniture arrangement is paying it the homage it deserves. The spaces below do just that.
I love that the brick in this room is made more sophisticated by moulding and columns. Adding the floating shelves between columns is a nice touch too.
How STUNNING is that chest? And the play of all the linear directions between the chest, brick, and shutter is really cool too. It’s also inspired me to re-style my shelves and dressers!

In this entryway the modern wallpaper with the aged brick is a beautiful contrast.
Painting this brick white keeps it from clashing too much with the polished counter top.
I love the simplicity of this space and the mixed materials between the fireplace, brick, wood, and glass.
Modern but warm

These days it’s tough to find unique nursery designs, I admit even the ones below- while darling, aren’t thinking too far out the box. But I did try and find some that weren’t the typical all white and/or pastel.
This nursery got bold with a large bright wallpapered accent wall.

Not crazy about the beach wall but love the warmer wood tones and rug.
Love the use of leather for the knobs and shelf brackets.

Never seen an iron canopy crib but it’s so pretty!

The use of shiny rose gold is unexpected in this nursery.

With a toddler boy and another little boy due October 16th, a super polished and elegant homes like the ones below aren’t in my immediate future. That doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy feasting my eyes on reflective finishes free of little fingerprints, floors free of tiny toy cars, and countertops free of mashed bananas…
The sconces are amazing, as is the herringbone floors and moulding.
I’d prefer a wood floor over a concrete one, but for me that chandelier really steals the show…

This space is crisp and tailored but the mix of hard and soft keeps it warm.
Pretty much love everything about this white kitchen. The subways tile and contrasting black island are perfect.
The carved desk is AMAZING. And the textured white wall behind it is an unexpected focal point.
More gorgeous moulding. The pure white with the wood floors is gorgeous.
