charming spaces: muted tones in montecito, california

Welcome to a new month! I'm not exactly sure where January and February went but I'm not complaining that we are approaching the spring season. Today's charming space is all about muted tones and texture. It is in Montecito, California - I think it's the family room - and belongs to designer Kendall Conrad and her family. The window and rug of course caught my attention right away, but I also like the vintage African textile cushions. I love how warm and cosy this space feels. (Here's another angle, of the fireplace.) The rest of the house is just as beautiful, please follow the link below if you want to take a look.

I'm checking out one day earlier this week because tomorrow we are celebrating our oldest daughter's birthday - I'm becoming a mother of a teenager. I'm looking forward to spoil her with her favourite cake and see the look on her face when she opens her present.

Have a beautiful and relaxing weekend!
