Christine Dovey is an interior designer and author of the blog Bijou & Boheme. I've been a huge fan of her work for a while now and read her blog religiously. So, naturally, I was ecstatic when Style Me Pretty featured her home tour on their site back in February. It's always fun to see how designers outfit their own homes and Christine's is not to be missed. It's so fabulous, I find myself going back to view the photos over and over.
Above, are photos of her daughter's bedroom. Would you not die to have that room when you were little??
Her son's room, which was also featured on Style at Home, isn't too shabby eitherThese are just a few of the beautiful images that Style Me Pretty featured, there a lot more here. And if you liked this space, I urge you to go to Christine's website and view the rest of her portfolio. You will not be disappointed. She's amazing!!
CIAO FOR NOW
This space is the perfect mix of traditional and minimalism. The home owner achieved this by layering the classical interior architecture with minimal contemporary furnishings. God, what I would give to live in a space with that much character - all the ornate crown moldings and the wainscoting trim in the dining room, the huge old school windows and pocket doors.....not to mention that herringbone wood floor in the living room & what looks like the office. Ugh, I die!
That much fabulous detailing throughout the space doesn't need much more decor brought in, as this home proves. Although, as much as I love the minimalistic style and admire those who live that way, I must accept that it's just not me. I somehow accumulate an awful lot of stuff, and I definitely enjoy a good "dust collector", (as my mom would call them) maybe a little too much.
Seeing this space has inspired me to do some 'spring cleaning'. I've gotta go through all of our stuff in the apartment and purge all the unnecessary crap. Then, hopefully, cleaning the entire space to get ready for spring, won't seem like such a horribly daunting task. It's a big job, but somebody's gotta do it......
UPDATE: Just so everyone knows, my roommate is a very good cleaning partner, and is very helpful when it comes to household chores...
