mod squad

This living room decor nods to the mod.  Limited in color but strong in form.  The dark stained floors are a wonderful contrast for all the white furniture.  The Silver chest, coffee table and end tables provide shine.  The flokati rug and leather tufted mod seats add texture and a perfect setting for a chic cocktail party.  Picture a pianist tickling the ivories,  chic people mingling and drinking martinis served from silver trays and some tasty hors d'oeuvres.  This illustration was done by special request for Connie over at blink decor.  Connie has an eye for design and love of keeping the home flames burning brightly.  Peruse the site for all your renovation and decor needs with the blink of an eye or click of a button.

mrs.blandings-
thank-you! the perfect interior set for a mystery, a "hitchcock" that is. fashions in bold bright color, then fading to gray as the plot thickens.

OMG, you have just painted my, soon to be (in 12 months) great room... exactly. I have been scheming furniture arrangements in order to do the lighting plan and you have painted it! A-M xx

So lovely...I love the fact that I completely appreciate this look even though it is completely opposite of my style. I think maybe it helps that you captured it so beautifully!
