easy elegance………

……I have been wanting this book for several weeks….and I finally have it in my possession!

Everyone always asks me what I call my style…and I never know what to say! I always throw out words like urban, eclectic, industrial ,vintage,found…etc. but when I first laid eyes on this book I knew I had found what I could completely agree with both in word and pictures……..easy elegance … “not so much a design style as a way of life. It’s a chic but relaxed look that rejects prescriptive style rules in favour of a more personal approach to decorating. Comfort, simplicity, function and individuality are the key ingredients of the look, and the result is a home that’s warm and welcoming, yet versatile and smart.”

Perfectly said….now feast your eyes and run out and buy this book! xo

Oh..and p.s. tell me if you think I’m right……….

  1. vintage simple

    I lovelovelove Atlanta Bartlett (and David Coote — did you know they're married? I didn't realize until recently. They are the dream team as far as design goes, I think!). I have the "At Home with White" and it's beautiful too…. Also, on a slightly different note, I posted a couple of your pictures today on vintage simple (with links back to knack, of course)… I hope that's okay — just let me know….
    I think I may have to get this book. I love their style!

    Easy + Elegance = Brilliant. Describes the Bar style perfectly. You know this is right up my alley–must add to my wish list {and vocabulary}.
