Above, Beyond, Around...

The robin's egg blue mats stopped me in my tracks. I love the introduction of the crisp, cool color in the mats, pillows, and chair, to an otherwise warm, neutral room. It is great to hear that the pieces in this designers home, Keith Arnold, come from here, there and everywhere—from trade-only design showrooms to flea markets and even parking lot liquidation sales. A collection of random pieces that makes the space home. It has been a while since we have be to any flea markets or antique shows. After reading about Courtney's Round Top trip, it got me excited for Scott's is this weekend; I hope we can make it over there.

What a great idea to have picture mats in this color (=color of my bathroom). Never would have dared to use color on a mat!
