Well during the crazy new year cleaning spree I moved all my furniture out of my living room to clean and instead of moving it back in, I rearrange it and turned it into a cozy reading/drawing room. The inspiration came from the Pelham Hotel, they have the coziest little drawing room that my husband and I love to take our evening Pimms in when we stay. The designer of the Pelham is Kit Kemp, she is fabulous, not afraid of color and very whimsical...which I LOVE. But I digress...
In true drawing room style I have the piano...it reminds me of a Bronte or Austin novel where the "accomplished" women would play the piano forte in the drawing room.
I also moved the settee into the breakfast nook and put some art on the wall. The two paintings on the right my daughter painted for me, the pink flower one for Mother's Day and the one of the Eiffel Tour was my 40th birthday present.
Here is another picture of the breakfast nook. The new drawing room is just to the right.
