More Head Trauma and Some Required Reading

The migraine bounced back today. Looks like we are going to have to postpone that tour of the master bedroom yet again. But I don't want to leave you high and dry, so here's a little eye candy for you to feast on, courtesy of a new e-zine, High Gloss.

I really enjoyed their feature on Jamie Meares' home. I particularly adore her bold use of color.

I am wishing I could just switch out our 70's fabulous rock fireplace for her painted brick one above. Maybe I am just missing having a mantle...

Her playful mix of patterns, textures, and objects also feels spot on to me.

I definitely need to inject some playfulness into this space, beyond just dressing up those naked walls with some color and art.

And did I mention that the color of this bedroom is exactly what I have been hoping to hit upon? It's a little more green than our old bedroom. I think I might have discovered a paint chip that perfectly captures this muddy green/blue/grey color. (More on that to come.) Unfortunately, this room's paint is the only color in her home not given in the mag. Drat!

Here's hoping the headache abates.


  1. I'm loving all of your recommendations for e-magazines. I do crave a hard copy of them though. There's something so satisfying about flipping a real page and dog-earing the corner. By the way, did you notice the Swanson Vineyard shout out on multiple pages??? I was so excited!

  2. I want to know how you got the individual pages to post here, because I want to save page 92 and 106. Love love love!

  3. Every time I see Swanson get a shout out, I feel like we are total trendsetters! And it makes me crave another girls trip sometime soon. Why does someone have to get married for us to go on a little weekend vacation?

    And about the pages from High Gloss... I took a screen shot with my mac. I am not sure that PC's have a similar feature. But I do think you can email yourself links of the pages. Hope that helps!
