It's all in the details

image via Things That Inspire


While reading a recent post about outdoor rooms on
Things That Inspire, I came across this photo of a loggia from a home currently on the market in Atlanta. It took my breath away.
At first glance, what caught my eye was the luscious blue color of the outdoor cushions.
Upon closer inspection though, I noticed the most amazing detail!
The same blue color, but in the most unexpected of places. There was one door, way off to the left, just outside an opening leading off the loggia, painted the same amazing azure blue color! And if that weren't enough, up above on the ceiling, between the beams, was a soft and faded version of the same gorgeous blue...bringing the sky inside!

It's this attention to detail that truly makes a space unforgettable!

This is such a beautiful space! I love the use of the blue, and the fireplace is simply gorgeous. I wonder what the rest of the house looks like? Thanks for sharing this. Kathy

What a gorgeous..gorgeous space Therese. I'm glad you pointed out the ceiling. That among all the other pops of blue do make this room so spectacular. Another testament as to why I want to visit Atlanta.

I can't thank you enough Theresa for all your REALLY kind, and thoughtful comments recently. No one ever has to leave comments, let alone such encouraging ones such as yours. I truly appreciate it.

you are absolutely right about the details...good eye Terri! when you see outdoor chairs like those, be sure to let me know, remember I'm in the market for deck chairs under my humongous backyard tree.
