She's Grrrrreat!

The title of this post could apply to either the writers of the awesome blog desiretoinspire, or to one of the great designers they have recently profiled: Diana Kellogg (get the pun?!).



My mother, who was an interior designer in the '80s, recently noted that my design posts always show photos with a common element: long windows, a certain quality of natural and artificial light and warm wood against starker textures. I think I should try to branch out but really, I can only be gripped by what grips me. Stay tuned, though. I'm working on it.

  1. Pheh. Branching out is overrated. You like what you like! And I always adore the interiors you select.

  4. That look grips me, too. In fact, the grip is so strong, I'm going to move into that place, regardless of who lives there now.

  5. What does your mother make of your taste? Is it very different than hers? I can't help but be curious.

  6. Love the glass and windows. We've outgrown out tall, thin Italianate, and I'd love something airy like this . . .

  7. E: I'll tell you what, we can strong-arm them out of there together. Except, wait, you have the stronger arms so you can do that part! :-)

    Bel: You know we took this one off line... I think she finds it "eclectic" - emphasis on the quotes :-) She likes it even though her style is different.

    Miss C: Isn't it a romantic, sophisticated place... Such gorgeous natural light.

  8. I discovered the power of windows after spending 1.5 years in London. I've been sold ever since!

  9. E8: Oh I agree. And when you're in a place as moody as UK, you need the windows that much more.
