  15. Good, GOOD work :)
    adorable, i love it :)


  16. There are a couple rooms I don't really care for, like the one with the black couch and the big shell prints on the wall- I just don't like how heavy and dark that room looks. But a lot of the rooms- like the kitchen with the blue polka dots on the chairs- I love! And I'm so in love with that blue beaded chandelier in the 5th picture! I have a picture of one just like it but done with tan beads in my inspiration folder...I can't remember where I found it though.

  17. Awww, AMAZING!!!!!!! I love each and every photo, especially the white&violet room!
    Fabulous inspiration!

  18. She's probably a little more traditional than I normally go for as a modern gal but I have to say that every room is finished to perfection. She has a knack for details and leaves nothing left undone.

  19. I really like how everything seems classic but at the same time, she adds a bold pop to each room whether it be via color or furniture piece. Also, love the blue and white striped floor.

  20. I get a sense of eclecticism in certain spaces with the traditional style yet amazing color choices and combination of colors and patterns.


  21. Cool designer alert indeed!!
    Talk about major room envy.

  22. Wow Jessie, such gorgeous spaces, my faves are 5, 11, 29, 33 & 34, esp that fireplace I have always wanted one like that, one day!
    Have a lovely day xx

  23. I really like how she uses complementary colors -- red and turquoise, orange and green -- together. Plus lots of great contrast.

    The turquoise chandelier and green four poster bed kill me every time I see them!

  24. She is definitely not afraid of color. I love that she uses a neutral background and then adds color and it is slightly tailored. Very pretty rooms.
