The simplicity of monochromatic. Love the light!
I was trying to find the staircase from the US TV show Brothers and Sisters. I love that particular one with the curved wall and family photos on the wall. This is a smaller version of the one I was trying to find and the colours etc are not my own taste but I love the round table and the curved staircase.
This is more modern but has lovely soft furnishings to soften the room. I adore the rug on the stairs (again blue and white). A lovely touch is the sitting area on the landing of the staircases.
My boy turns 9 today. We have a lot planned. Hope he loves his day and enjoys sharing it with friends and family. He was most excited to get the new Mario 7 3DS game and the new Mario London Olympics Wii game. He also got a beautiful guitar and shoes (if they arrive). He woke this morning with a big smile on his face. He still has chubby cheeks!
