Leslie’s home tour

Posted on Wed, 23 Dec 2009 by KiM

We received an email the other day from a reader named Leslie that had me completely intrigued. “hi. i love your blog and i am also a design junkie. i live in a stone house from the 1930’s and have designed it with a diverse mix of tribal, mid century modern, antiques, hand made objects, things i’ve collected from my travels. it all pulls together in an integrated rich mix of textures and objects…i do think it is a home you would appreciate and wondered if you wanted to see some sample photo’s of some rooms?” Hells yeah I want to see!!! Mid-century and tribal is Jo’s ultimate mix of styles and I love it as well. Leslie has such a wonderful collection of tribal pieces and ethnic furniture, and some fabulous teak pieces. Not to mention quite a stellar collection of rugs and mid-century chairs (and cute pooch) that had me gasping in delight. I love eclectic and this is for sure an eclectic mix. Thank you for sharing your home with us Leslie!!

NW Home says:

I totally love this house! It has a really great vibe and a wonderful mix of furniture and accessories. I have a somewhat similar mix myself–danish modern with rustic country and a variety of "ethnic" items. I think it works well. Thanks for sharing!

Nuit says:

Great fabrics on the master bed and cushions. Is it John Robshaw?
