Two of my favorite things from two of my favorite stores

It’s been so long since I’ve posted that I’m having trouble remembering how to go about it. Anyway, it’s great to be back. I’ve been a long time admirer of Hudson, an amazing shop for the home in Wellesley and Boston. Chris is my friend and manager of the Wellesley store so it tends to be my go-to for amazing finds. I recently went into the shop and spotted this black and white photocopy of a well know lithograph called, "View of the Water Celebration on Boston Commons 1848". When I saw it, I loved it immediately. Driving home with this six foot long piece of wood jammed into my neck didn’t stop me.


My other go-to favorite is Good and White in Falmouth, Mass. It is run by two amazing women with amazing taste. Diane Good and Susan White never disappoint. The round pedestal table (next to the sofa) was purchased years ago, I fell in love immediately and still feel the same today.

Wow, Kelly, the lithograph looks amazing in your living room. It gives it so much character and really makes a statement. Love it!

The round table looks lovely too, though it is a bit hidden in the photograph.

Nice to see you back, Kelly!

Kelly,

Good to have you back. I have really missed your postings. I think my favourite posts of yours are of your home. LOVE!! So it goes without saying that I love what you have shown us in this post today.

The lithograph is gorgeous and really finishes the room and love the table as well.

I really love the way you have used balance, scale and proportion (and that includes every room that you have shown us). The room that is shown today has a hint of industrial about it and I love it. Job well done.

Take care
