a great pair of legs


Have you ever longed for glamourous legs like these?  This gal, Minnie Mortimer looks so happy-go-leggy that I just had to post her. Habitually Chic posted about Minnie and her own line of fresh fashions, click here to see.   Well - have you ever thought about bringing a great pair of legs into your home, I am talking about a perfectly poised table or chair.  The photos below are from interior designer, Todd Romano Home.

Lay down on the floor and take a look at the legs of your home.  Will you take a look at these legs and the mixture of legs, from twiggy, to curved, to just freshly waxed with high gloss lacquer.  It is as if these legs would be comfortable walking down any fashion runway.  

I love the mixture of the style and color of the legs.  Each piece certainly stands alone but they seem to be quite pleased to be in such good company.  I bet you will never think of legs the same way now. After all, it is summer.  Time to show some leg.

I've always loved that Romano console and great point about noticing furniture legs!

thanks- after all it is summer, and time to show some leg right.
I also love anything wrought iron for outdoors.

What a great post :-) I'm always happy to see these images from Todd Romano -i think he's probably about my 2nd favorite designer!

be sure to watch the little video of his home and how he gave it such a twist!
he is sophisticated chic but still knows how to add color and zing!

Thanks for the shout out! That apartment that Todd Romano designed for Robert Burke is my inspiration for the Bachelor Pad I am currently decorating. I love the mix of modern pieces and antiques!

hc-
can't wait to see the bachelor pad after you are done.
what a lucky guy, sure he will not be a bachelor when the lucky lady steps into that apartment.

I'm a miniskirt addict so I loooove showing some leg.
I'll take nice legs over big breasts any time!

We're "leg people" in our house. And I checked out her site...the devon dress looks like one of those pieces you can wear 2,000 times. Lovely stuff.

great idea to check out the legs around here at ground level. although i'm afraid they might be frightful (mine included) and make me want to redecorate it all. your sofa post below is wonderful. i love a softwhite piece, classic yet modern. we're currently in the market and your d.i.y. project is the way to go!
