Have you ever had a friend that likes exactly the type of things that you like? That’s the way my friend, Christiana, is. We are completely cut from the same cloth and I haven’t found many ways in which our interests diverge. Case in point, the “rough luxe” look. Christiana mentioned a house she’d been to in Dublin (much like this one featured a couple of years ago in Martha Stewart living). Christiana’s friends left the weathered and worn paint on their walls in their Georgian Dublin home to give it a rough and rustic feel.
After seeing the first photos of my dilapidated new house project, the first email I got from Christiana was about the walls! (Walls which I love so much that I dragged my friend’s band in to take photos). If the sound-proofing and re-plastering don’t get in the way, I really hope I can leave at least a feature wall “rustic” in the same way the owners in this house have done. I just love the look. here’s one of the shots of the band at the house with my rustic walls as the backdrop. Check out their music on MySpace at: http://www.myspace.com/bluefevermusic
