Evolution of a Room

I've been collecting pictures for my living room inspiration for a while. Recently I noticed two of the rooms looked alike. Actually it was the same room.

This is the first picture I saved. I think it is from Domino. Does anyone remember it from Domino?


Next was this room. It's getting better. Notice the changes? More artwork, antlers, rugs. Its looking even better. Then what should I see from the latest Vogue but this...

Wow!!! Now we are really talking. It is from the home of Suzanne and Christopher Sharp, owners of the Rug Company. I love seeing how this room evolved over time. At least I hope it evolved. I hope it wasn't just styled up for the latest photo shoot. Maybe it's a little of both. What do you think?

This picture is from another room in their house, but notice it is the green chairs and red lamp from the first photo.

Want to see more of their fabulous home? Go here.
Are you a color person? You are in for a treat.
If not put on your sunglasses and take a look, I think you'll like it!

  2. Such fun. Have Vogue here now, never saw the other photos before. Think its a little of both. My pick is the last photo with couches flanking fireplace...but for everyday living would prefer a lot less stuff.

  3. The evolution is really interesting to see. I love those green chairs! Just went to the link too, and I love their backstory! The rest of their house is a lot of fun too.

  9. I love their houses! As you know I love color and their use of color and pattern is brilliant! Love the way you show the evolution of the blue room. The green rug in the third picture is fabulous!

  10. Great eye! Something tells me that your hunch is right - a little bit style and a little bit of styling...

  20. Love the evolution of this room - let's think that, rather than too much styling - it's more fun to think that way. Thank you so much for your comments - how do you get to me so fast?

  21. Good eye. My vote is for lots of styling. I read once the amount of styling that went before a shoot. I'm sure Vogue did not want their photos to look like they came out of Domino's.
