Newbie Reunion Party and Rooms to View!

Hi Everyone!

We are headed for a huge storm here and on top of that, there is a fire burning on the Tygerberg, near my home and the strong winds are not helping the firefighters at all!

Today I am joining a wonderful lady who helped me to meet many of you in blogland through her Newby Linky Party each Monday.

Debbie from Debbiedoo's is having a Newbie Reunion Party for all of her graduates from the usual Monday Newbie Party. Any reasons for a party and I will be joining them today!

Rooms to View

Today I want to share some rooms with you that I truly enjoy and appreciate. Rooms, that satisfies all my decorating urges and inspires me to learn more, enjoy more and to apply it to my own home.

Most of these rooms have a lot going on and one picture can keep me occupied for a long time as I study every aspect of the room. These rooms have bee richly layered and  each and every one offers a huge amount of viewing pleasure and must deliver an equal amount of pleasure to whom ever is lucky enough to live in them. So, enjoy and stay as long as it pleases you and may there be loads  of oohs and aaahs....

Coco Chanel's Dining Room below is opulent and stylish. That screen alone can keep me captivated for a while!

Are you studying the bookshelves as well?
Now, I would love to see the rest of the room as well!
I heart the globe atop the writing bureau...and what are your thoughts on the rug? I don't know about you....but I am right at home.

Another stunning black screen. Loving the old black telephone, and that chaise and faux fur throw...I was not to in love with the rug but take it away and the room is poorer for it! Loads of visual layers here.

Ralph Lauren... Loads of interest and colours makes a perfectly cosy room.

Well...I guess the iron work has me in raptures, let alone the rest of it.

Oh my goodness... the tapestry is de lovely and all the blue and white, the rug and scones has me in a happy place...

I am still on the architectural detail in the room below... so much to study in here...

Love the leather and the old English club atmosphere...

I know! I have shown you this one before but now please take a closer look and take in the detail....

I hope you enjoyed those and if you have a fav let me know which one it is!

Please remeber to wonder over to Debbiedoo's to meet and greet some of the other blogggers.

A huge thank you to Debbie for especially having one for us old timers!

Live Well
