I was researching one of my favorite, punchy paisley prints ( 'Henry' by Raoul Textiles )

and stumbled across this cheery approach to beach house decorating by Mona Ross Berman. You've gotta love a client who says yes to pattern, color, texture and really good fabrics and wallpapers.

I love the floor, of course, super fun but I love what she did to those ordinary closet doors. The placement of the knobs and the decortive detailing make such a difference.

(below) By using grasscloth only on the inside of this nook, an area that could have been a throw away space, suddenly becomes a room in itself.(again with the detail work on the cabinet doors, such a simple thing to do with a big diff. )

I'm not sure that this shot shows off how cool this room is. From the looks of things, it has a really fun pop art vibe happening. I wish we could see it from another angle. The art, that light fixture all good. That table definitely gives me ideas for a DIY project. Pair it with some different colored, Eames shell chairs and it could be really whacky.

 And I love a good lattice wallpaper and it looks great mixed with that little bit of black with the seat covered in 'Betwixt' (Schumacher)
