An Artist's Life And A Little Night Music




There is something about this room. 
Maybe it is the big bowl of shells on the table
or the little leather case next to it.
I can't help wondering what is inside...

Imagine sitting in that chair and looking
out onto a beautiful garden. 
The peace and quiet would be lovely.

A bouquet of fresh flowers on the table.
Interior colours...rich and welcoming.
Could the blue painted chest contain a treasure or two?
The rugs and that gorgeous chest of draws 
 must have an interesting story behind them. 
I wonder....



This home is featured in the November 2010 issue of Country Living UK.
It is the home of painter, Sandra Whitmore




You can tell a creative person lives here. 
She has surrounded herself with beautiful and thoughtful objects.
I imagine she is continuously inspired by her surroundings.



Of course, a setting like this needs a little music.
Have you heard of Tina Malia?
She is another artist that manages to bring it all home.



A little night music...enjoy!
Jeanne

  7. I agree - there is something very interesting about that room. It nothing like my house, but something calls me to this style - simple, but sophisticated.
    Thanks for sharing.

  8. I am beginning to think that Jeanne and home are synonymous. A true lover of hearth and warmth, you are.

    Joy always,

  9. Beautiful music. Great pics, I think that chest of drawers is filled with memories. Old photo albums, gorgeous linens and bit and pieces collected from different countries.

    Could be your chest of drawers?

  12. Thanks everyone. I am not sure what it was about this article, it just struck me. I call it the 'flip back'. You flip thru lots of magazine pages and then you have those one or two that make you stop and 'flip back' to look at it again. I went back to this one several times. It had staying power :))

  15. What a beautiful home, so simple, so rich with color and furnishings. I love the first room. My first impression was that the setting was in old Bombay and could imagine someone writing in a journal...and Tina Malia is also divine...thank you for a beautiful post.

  16. Jeanne I think you should do a post about the nationality of an interior. Today we think that houses look the same and follow the same fashions from one side of the planet to the other, but to me this lovely interior could only be British.

    I like her paintings

  17. Sharon, what a brilliant idea! You have me thinking now...you have me thinking now...

    Becky, Tereza and Kittie ...I think I have discovered travelers at heart too.

  19. Such a beautiful home! I'm sure the blue chest is full of secrets ... wouldn't it be nice to know the stories it hides?

    Thanks so much for your visit and lovely comment, Jeanne!
