I think it’s very apropo that the above room’s got a big ol’ oyster painting anchoring the corner. If oysters are indeed aphrodisiacs then this sliver of a room’s makin’ me feel all sorts of warm and fuzzy all over. Having just moved back to Santa Monica to a pad within walking distance to the sea, my place is being filled with touches here and there of all things serene and beachy (but just touches, so as not to overdo it). And for me, the room above, with the painted exposed brick walls, slightly distressed table, white frilly coverlets on the bed and chair, and the clam (!) shell vase, just captures so perfectly the zen look and feel I’m going for. The oyster painting, by Bellamy Murphy, was from the November ‘10 Coastal Living magazine, and I can’t take how gorgeous it is.
Anywho, Happy Monday to all, and please continue to keep our good friend Andy in your thoughts. All of your prayers are sooo appreciated for this very special girl, and helping her to heal, day by day.
