this room of the week makes me want to immediately re-do my entire 1st floor.

it has all the traditional architecture that i love so much {despite the 100 year old house issues that come with it}, the mix of clean lines and traditional furniture, rich creamy upholstery {that would not survive my young family and dog},  and that pop of black on the mantle and art.  without the color and pattern of the beautiful rug, this room would fall flat.  looks great.  in my next life.
