Here's another arrangement to consider if you plan to move things around this weekend. Truth be told, it wouldn't work for me -- I need easier access to my books and storage areas. But the juxtaposition of the modern Slim Aarons photograph with the stately, marble-topped Kentian table is really interesting. The whole vignette evokes cozy glamour, and how can you not fall for the loosely arranged yellow roses? The Chinese pot under the table is apparently a reproduction.

Some of you say you want to see more yellow, while others have tired of it. For those in favor, I think these golden-yellow curtains look stunning against green walls in Julia Reed's New Orleans house. Last holiday season she generously participated in a tour of homes that benefited Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans. (Image courtesy New Orleans Homes & Lifestyles .)
No yellow, but this domino video of Michael Bastian's digs is a must see. I think most of the free world has already watched it, however it's filled with inspiration for arranging and collecting art, and I should have linked to it in an earlier post.
