europe on my mind

It's hard to believe that my trip is almost here and that I'll be in Italy on Friday! I've got lots to do to get ready, and as I'm packing and running last-minute errands I'm finding myself dreaming about the sights and sounds and smells I'm going to experience when I'm there. See, it's been ages since I've traveled to Europe, and I'm craving the culture. From ancient architecture to a simple cup of cappuccino, I can't wait for it all. And in honor of that I thought I'd share some of my favorite interiors that feel like Europe. I know I'm going to want my home to look like this when I get back!

Feels like a French bistro, no?


Every great European room must have a beautiful fireplace. Below, Charlotte Moss's bathroom, with beamed ceiling, wallpaper, matching draperies, floral chairs, adorable vanity, tufted velvet ottoman, fur throw—what a cozy, comforting place to start and end each day.


I adore this little vignette that looks collected and unstudied. And the room below could only be in some great city in Europe. All that ornamentation. The herringbone floors. And those windows. Love.

And finally, no European tour is complete without toile. What's your favorite look from across the pond to bring home? Open shelving or a pot rack, parquet floors, salon-style art, wallpaper?
