Living in Linen

I was browsing through one of my files of tear sheets last night when I stumbled on this home which takes my breath away each time I see it. I have a love affair with linen and love the use of it here on the large furniture pieces. This room feels warm and inviting, yet thoroughly modern.

The rug is a 1940s composition of vintage kilims, an idea which has seen a resurgence lately among upcycle artists. 

And this cozy corner in the bedroom is simply perfect. I never would have thought to put those pillows together, but I really love the femininity of the color combination.
