Who Loves Betty Loo Phillips??

Hi Everyone!

How are you all doing? We had a gorgeous autumn day and I got into my garden and had a good work out and now I am most grateful that blogging is a seated activity!  The weather played along nicely and it was a warm and wonderful day.

During my blog hops I came across a design book by Betty Loo Phillips in another blogger's  sidebar...can't remember now whose blog I was on??

Anyway, I clicked away and can not help but share my finds. Maybe you are all familiar with the books and Betty Lou Phillips work, but for me it was a new and enchanting discovery and now my book wish list has taken a leap by about nine!!

I love  an old gold and a deep red combination as you know, so this one jumped out at me immediately! Very luxurious and glam.

Hearting velvet?

Elegant bathroom bliss.

This is one of the best nautical rooms I have seen.

Great colour combination.

Copper Love!

These mounted trays are just wonderful.

My personal favourite.

Gorgeous and girly...

An opulent room...

Love this room below. Note the ensemble of decanters on the left...

This is the book that got me started on my journey of discovery ...

I am going to find some second hand copies on line of the older books and I might treat myself to a new copy of  this one!! Birthday soon....

Needless to say, I will be busy for a while!!

An elegant entrance with the promise of more to come inside...

For more beauty and inspiration visit her website HERE.


And a beautiful tapestry to seduce me further.

Whether you are an old fan or a new one like myself, I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did finding it.

Thank you for your company.

Live Well
