Get Gorgeous

Graham and Green has pretty door knobs and starlet interiors filled with gorgeous items. I love when a space can be comfortable, functional and incorporate different style elements from vintage to modern. On the contrary when someone asks me, "what's your personal style?" I get that deer caught in headlights look. I feel like my style continuously changes and evolves, heck it changes weekly on Please Sir! Normally I blurt out "oh, eclectic" and then cringe because I used the word "eclectic" again...yikes. I try to keep those over-used design words to a minimum, but in times of stress they sort of come out...like an old stutter or bad curse word. Next time I'm going to answer with evolving...my style is evolving...can evolving be a style? Or maybe I'll be passive aggressive and say there are bigger things in this world than defining my style. How emo of me....it must be a Monday!

Evolving totally works. Don't let anyone force you to nail down your style with uncomfortable adjectives! Additionally, I'm considering selling a kidney so I can afford that pink chaise.

please sir said...

Haha - hmmm - organ selling style works too!

megan said...

love the shots of pink!

citysage said...

'Evolving' is a great catch-all word! I'm also a fan of making long, complicated compound words like the Germans do so well...right now I would describe my style as Glamodernorganic :)

erin@designcrisis said...

Love that top picture, and the lamp on the lucite coffee table is hawt!

I hope "evolving" is a style, because it's my style, too. I also like "Glamodernorganic."

loeve this photopgraphs!

That Girl Designs said...

Love the little flower vases in the second photo. These rooms all have elements that are really me.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

just adding a single color in a neutral environment is quite a punch! good punch!! if there's such a thing... ;)
POW!

Krissy said...

Evolving is a good thing! Can't wait for the shop girlie :)

PS- it's a really good show...

Simple Answer said...

love lucite. love, love, love it.

Maya said...

Evolving sounds great..., up until now I have to admit, I'd blurt out eclectic too.

Claire, said...

Diana, these are gorgeous! I love that first collection, so rad. And those vases are sweet, they remind me of something I already have and love "Candela" by vessle, they are rechargeable lamps which share a similar design. I love my candela and I love those vases.
I did do a blog post on them...

Can't wait to see what other beauty you find to show us this week.
Warm regards.

Whatever you call it, it's still a beautiful and welcome surprise when I see new things on your blog!
xoh
(note to self: MUST limit use of the word faboo on my blog.)

I love the turquoise and purple together. I want to live here!!!

design for mankind. said...

Oooh, I'm the same way. You should really read Style Statement--- it will change your life! :)

karina said...

I just love the beautiful photos!
I will not answer any difficult question today!!

Richiesliv DÅ och NU said...

Adore G&G, indeed... they are so smart in their designs.

Love to stay there forever §:-))

Jennifer said...

I am positive that my style evolves every other week...it's so distracting. I have an old neighbor whose house has not changed AT ALL in 35 years. Everything is the same. And honestly, I envy that. :-) It would cost much less to be so entirely satisfied!

Stella said...

Lovely bed!

aimee said...

evolving is most definitely a style! and i think it's a very good one, because it means you're constantly searching for new things that inspire you.

Victoria said...

Love the white pallet with splashes of bright color and the cool flower vase!

My taste and style is ever evolving, too. However my checkbook hasn't been able, so far, to support my evolution of style, taste and preference... one can only hope for a better decorated tomorrow!

Bonbon Oiseau said...

evolving eclecticism? hmmm...the best thing about your taste and style is that they're YOUR taste and style--wonderful because they're from your heart! (and anything can be changed with new pillows)

Bonbon Oiseau said...

(oops... or knobs!!!)

Savvy Mode SG said...

love the flowers.

Megan said...

Amazing style and looks!

Sara Christine said...

These photos are some serious wow. I was scrolling thru trying to choose a favorite, but each one is better than the last. "Serious wow" is my personal style. ;)

cindy : quaint said...

may i have the pink chaise, please?

ThePeachTree said...

those lab vases are SO cute

Georgia (AKA g-bug) said...

ahh, yes—evolving. that works.
(at least for now, until that word becomes the new "eclectic" right?)

that fuchsia arm chair is WOW!

Stephanie said...

I love the jolts of color against the stark white.

I think the best styles are the ones without a name, the ones where the unifying factor is an individual personality, and you definitely have that in spades :)

Chris said...

Funny you should mention the word "eclectic" because I just posted about my "eclectic cottage" style today! I don't know how else to describe it though. I suppose it's sort of like "miscellaneous"? A catch-all category for everything that can't be defined or labeled. Kinda is a good thing, eh? :)

LOVE the pink chair!

Rachel@oneprettything.com said...

I want every single one of those rooms. I'm in love with jewel toned accents.

WendyB said...

I heart that chaise lounge.

picciolo said...

I love these pictures with their accents of colour,especially the teal bedspread
: )

Here, There, Elsewhere... and more said...

WOW!
I love the eclectic style here - I particularly love the way the splashes of bright colours (red, fuschia, teal) just bring the "look" together..:)

paisleystclaire said...

O-So-Pretty! I haven't decorated our house yet because I'm worried that if I commit to a style, I will want to change it straight away.

Hey Harriet said...

I was really drawn to that white globe in the 4th photo. It looks so sweet on the white floor with the white wall behind it.

Another great post evolving eclectic emo :)

Camille said...

The white flower bud vases are fantastic. (I find I use a lot of the same words, too.

I've tagged you so check out my blog...it isn't a long one so have fun.

jae said...

It is hard to describe style. I would say mine is traditional with some modern thrown in or modern with some traditional thrown in.....which basically means eclectic. I have always been told you can't be blind and live at my house....I move everything around too much!

bandelle said...

I am the same way -- my style seems to change way too often but there is always a common thread of white and soft grey. Beautiful images, Diana.

nichole said...

That teal bedspread is amazing!

Freshly Found said...

White +....! It always works! Lovely stuff!

ambika said...

That chaise lounge is so dreamy!

{this is glamorous} said...

Adore Graham and Green, and love the way the vintage painting looks against the mirrored desk in the top image.

Annie said...

Absolutely perfect! I love everything.

Songy said...

Let's face it we all have too much stuff to have clean spaces like this.. or is it just me? I'd kill to have dresser with that lack of clutter!

littlebyRD said...

Wow - really beautiful rooms! I love those door knobs in the previous post too - I would love to be able to replace all of ours with something like those. Maybe just one at a time and it would be possible.
