More of my dream, his dream and the truth

These stunning living arrangements are from the portfolio of
london based location agency Shootfactory. Found via Danielle of The style files.
As I've said before, I'm letting go of some of my girly inclinations. Trying anyway. Don't worry its for my own good, this blog is where I can let loose with all the vintage china and flowery love safely without my husband getting dragged into his living hell. Bless him. Although I think I really am turning over a new leaf. I adore this first interior, but, I don't think I could live here. A bit too frilly. I think I am actually liking the next one more. Am I cured? He has put up with a lot over the years. Never complaining when he has had to sweep the flower garlands out of the way so he can have a shower. Drinking out of polka dot bone china. His bedside lamp changing daily when I used to work for a lighting retailer.
I think to counter balance the first eight years of our time together he would like a house something similar to this one above. Dark and sultry with some leather, wood and slate, should do it for him. I'm just happy I get something new to design. The truth I think is that our dream is now the same. I guess we'll buy somewhere a bit ratty and rundown and we won't have the help we had last time so it will be a slower process than our current apartment. But if when we are in the process it could look anything similar to this peeling glory, I know I'll be happy.

I agree with you, the top one is a wee bit too ruffly for my tastes. The bottom too are fantastic! I like the furniture in the second and the walls in the third. Good finds Jess!

The walls are so great in these!

The second one is divine. All that texture. And still the femininity of great moulding etc. I think there definitely is a happy median between your tastes!
