It is not my intention to be political on my blog, but in light of the good news from America, its people deciding to move forward, I was in the mood for featuring the American flag on the blog. Then I remembered this beautiful photo in my files.
That bedroom with its blend of white and wood, subtle use of red and blue hues, and vintage pieces speaks to me. I'm especially drawn to the beautiful craftsmanship in the design of the bed. It's a Vermont luxury bed designed by Frank Hudson, a family run company in the UK that has been in business for over 100 years. In this particular design they blend colonial American and Spanish influences and embrace the craftsmanship of that era.
I do like the styling of the space. I'm not a fan of using flags in decoration, as I usually find the result somewhat over-the-top and simply tacky. However, that weathered looking flag in the corner appeals to me. The space feels inviting and the flag echoes the lovely colours in the striped rug on the floor.
Something tells me that I would sleep very well in that bed.
