Art thou Inspired?

July 03, 2013

Today I have the fabulous Tobe from Because It's Awesome sharing all the perfect elements for an inspired cozy and girly nook.  I told you I had fabulous guest posts for you so you don't miss me too much.  Here she is!!

Hi, friends of Albertina! Tobe here from Because It's Awesome, thrilled to be filling in on Mimosa Lane for the day. Since I know our girl loves art, I thought I would put together a room inspired by a piece from the very talented Rebecca Newport. I work at my kitchen table a lot and I find that I love a round desk -- especially so if I had a nice cushy wingback to pull up to it! Plenty of feminine accessories with simple shapes lend just the right amount of girly to the space. And that etagere? Please. Every room could use one of those!

Thanks for having me, Albertina!

Thanks Tobe!!  Oh my YES, I need that bookcase.  It's FABULOSO!!  Visit Tobe here.

  2. I love the burst! I am a huge fan of gold right now, and this would be perfect on a coffee table or book case shelf. Those pillows are great too, perfect for a girly nook.


  3. thanks again for having me, Albertina!! ox

  4. Tulip table/leather wingback pairing is so unexpected - would perfectly meld both mine and my husband's design styles. Fun!

  5. Tobe this is perfection. The lamp and then the tobacco leather chair , the fab art of course. It all just works!
