The first picture was the one that clinched it for us. We'd moseyed over to LakeBDesign/FergusandMe's Flickr after spotting a few shots on the Apartment Therapy LA Group Pool Flickr page and then we saw it. Unusual and unexpected combinations of colour are our personal swooning point; the green West Elm Parsons desk against the Farrow & Ball blue wall was elegant in a way that left us speechless. This is a little larger than our usual house call; there were so many luscious vignettes in LakBDesigns/FergusandMe's gracious home that we had a hard time choosing among them.
Here Ikea mixes with fine antiques and upscale pieces (love the Barbara Barry sofas!) in a setting that is traditional with a humourous twist of colour that is unique. This is a home we'd enjoy visiting, it's also a home we like to see more of!
