My friend, Lane, has accused me of having a photographic memory for interiors, and I think
she might be right.
It is a completely useless skill.
Why can't I, for example, remember the exact copy of a text book page?
Now that would be a good skill to have.
Anyway, I just came across this living room on Pinterest and followed the link through to find what I suspected. The design is from the L.A. firm Nickey Kehoe. What tipped me off is the stool on the right. It's pretty unusual, isn't it?
You might remember it from this House Beautiful photo featuring a Nickey Kehoe design project. Upon closer inspection, I realized that the first photo was taken in the same house. What other similarities can you see?
Here's another recent look alike that started on Pinterest.
I knew just where to find it -- on my Pinterest Bathroom board:
Oh, look at that! The sconces were changed for the Hinkley catalog. I think I like the Hinkley ones better.
And I also never knew, until I saw the first photo, that the mirror hanging against the wall is an inlay mirror. I'm a huge fan of inlay...
Speaking of which, I'm embarking on my third inlay stenciling project soon (see first and second here). This time it will be a small two-drawer chest and we'll be selling it on our shop.
By the way, the above bathroom is probably in my top five favorites. Which reminds me that I'd better choose another room for the next in my series.
Hmm, maybe it will be the bathroom...
