This Vibe

Just back from a quick jaunt down to Florida for the holiday weekend, where I second guessed every design decision made on our vacation home so far.  It’s a challenge trying to sort out the decor long distance, measuring and then re-measuring, and then sweating every detail back here, in New York.  (I know, boo-hoo for me) I’ve made a few mistakes already, nothing too major, however, I don’t want to screw up anything else… Inspiration helps a lot, it’s such an overused word, but it’s really everything to someone like me, starting from scratch and trying to get it right.  Today, staring at these images by Burnham Design, it’s more than just the sum of these parts that I’m trying to duplicate here, it’s really the “whole laid back yet still very chic” vibe…

  4. The first three images are beautiful. That dining table is stunning. It's ok to make decorating mistakes….I feel like sometimes they bring originality to the room…well, depending on what it is…..but I find mostly you can work around them.

  5. Love all the spaces Sue! The geometric pattern on the walls and built-ins are fabulous, a touch of 50's mod!

  6. We doubt your decor mistakes are even noticeable – after all, we're our own biggest critics, right? Can't wait to see your place in Florida in person (hint, hint!)
