2. Living Room, Patrick Sutton Associates
I didn't have a chance to meet Patrick Sutton, but I did take my time trying to acquaint myself with every amazing aspect of this room. First and foremost, the space itself is jaw-dropping. Towering ceilings, wood beams and Juliet balcony - not your average living room. But, the proportions of the furniture, the subtle wallpaper and variety of textures and finishes work to make the space feel approachable and even cozy. Many of the beautiful furnishings are from Patrick Sutton's own collection.

|I adore these French 19th century chairs with the colorful crewel upholstery.|
|The neutral rugs help to keep the room from being too formal. They have a wonderfully thick braided texture.|
|The upholstered screens are such a dramatic touch. Since I'm planning to make a velvet headboard with nailhead trim, I was particularly drawn to them. |

3. Library, Nancy M. Colbert, Design Partners, LLC
The library, off the main foyer, is understated and elegant, with a few touches that had me at hello...
|If this light fixture looks familiar - it is because I just posted it on Friday - in my bathroom inspiration photo. It is a Barbara Barry design for Circa Lighting. One day...|
|The woodwork, the roman shade, the ceiling, oh my! The speckled gold ceiling is such an unexpected touch. Shimmer can be difficult to pull off, but I think it works beautifully here.|
Check back tomorrow for the rooms upstairs.
