Quick, someone give me a ladder.




Rose Tarlow isn't really up my alley. She's very rustic and into browns and more earthy elements (I can't decide if I love or hate the ivy on the walls in these shots), however, I adore her furniture choices. The slip covered chairs and sofas, the bookshelves and of course, the tables.

But what I especially love (in any interior designer for that matter) is taking something constructed for one purpose, but then using it for another (better) one.

The bamboo ladder? Love.Love.Love it.

I want to find an old farm ladder to repaint and ding up as I see fit and hang my design mags from it. I get all excitedy just thinking about it.
