A Bijou Room – A Living Room Designed around Broken Wild

A Bijou Room – A Living Room Designed around Broken Wild

My computer is officially toast.
Crapsticks x 1000.
So the colour post I had planned is on a little hiatus.
In the meantime, I give you this…a room designed by moi with its centerpiece being that utterly divine original by Leigh Viner.
If art like that can’t inspire a room, I’m not sure what can.
Art – Leigh Viner
Sofa – Anthropologie
Chairs- Jayson Home & Garden
Wallcolour – Pink Ground/Farrow and Ball
Rug – Malachite/The Rug Company
Table – 1st Dibs
Sconces – Circa Lighting
Curtains – Cream silk
Pillows – JH&G, Tropical Breeze Decor
Sheep – Hans Krafft
And a little update, you can own that original masterpiece by bidding on it as part of our AUCTION- yes I said auction.
We’ll be holding one (date to be announced by coming up soon) to raise money for Bloggers Give Back and let me just say, there are a bevy of fabfry treasures that you’ll probably/definitely want to throw money at.
I’ll be back tomorrow with another gorgeous donation/thank you/bijou something.
Stay tuned lovers.

    Love your oh so elegant room. Pink ground is my absolute favorite pink – so soft and “stepped on”. Love it all but especially the sconces and chairs!!

    It isn’t a brand new mac mini is it? Last month less than two weeks after receiving our new mac, to replace our old one, it died. Harddrive and super drive were defective. (Since fixed.)

    Anyhow, hope you are able to retrieve data.

    Oh Christine I am so sorry about your computer situation! I know how stressful it can be, I’ve def been there πŸ™ So crummy.
    On another note that piece of art is amazing, Leigh is so talented.
    And I have to say that I was so excited that you bought that lovely branch wallhanging!! At 20 dollars how could you go wrong? I hope it’s fantastic!!

    So sorry to hear the computer is toast. It always seems to happen when people already have $$ earmarked for other things…like a gorgeous kitchen!

    I love your room. I’m bidding on the art. I have my eye on some other pieces of hers as well but this is a good cause so I’ll start with this one…if I’m lucky!

    Pink is such a great colour. It is not used nearly enough. I feel the same way about coral.
