A Thoughtful Place: Friday Eye Candy: A Traditional Apartment


Friday Eye Candy: A Traditional Apartment

This St. Petersburg apartment is one of the most charming spaces I have ever seen. The use of a soft and subtle color palette allows the details, lighting fixtures, and mix of textures really shine. I am especially enamored with the master bedroom. It is just beautiful. The fleur-de-lis wallpaper is gorgeous. Enjoy this week’s cozy and beautiful eye candy.

In the master bedroom suite, feminine fleur-de-lis wallpaper in powder blue freshens cream furniture and trims, along with matching blue bedcover and sofa accent cushions, to tie the whole scheme together from top to toe. The ornate decadence continues across the ceiling with a duo of shaded chandeliers for a cozy glow.

If you do not want to commit to an entire room of wallpaper, or if the price tag is a turn off, consider doing just a focal wall. Using a wood trim to frame it out makes such a great look. Blue Taupe Brown Traditional Bedroom

Every single room boasts a piece of candy with the lighting choices. All so pretty. And did you see the clock above the cooktop. Love.

  4. Every room is so beautiful especially the master bedroom. I love the seating area in the bedroom. At a glance, it looks like a built-in but it's obviously not. Great find, Courtney!

    Happy 6th birthday to your little girl! I hope she has a blast tomorrow!

    Have a good weekend!


  5. I love the utensil holder and the magnetic knife holder too. Give Riley Grace a hug and kiss from us.

  6. This apartment is beautiful...such a dream! Hope the party is a blast tomorrow!

  10. Beautiful. I like the way the space has been used where the coat rack is.

  11. I love the wallpaper idea on the walls and I am going to go for it when we remodel our bedroom!
    I love apartments since I am from NYC originally and currently we are living in a 14th. floor pent house apt. and I love the view! Have fun at the birthday party, can't wait to see your next post. Happy EARTH DAY weekend.

  12. How gorgeous! Happy Birthday to your daughter! Have a fun party!

  13. Just looking at the space made me feel rested and peaceful! The colors and design are gorgeous. I especially love the pattern on the wallpaper.

  14. Wow! the color choices are so serene and peaceful. It's the kind of place that needs very little in the way of splashes of color. LOVE the hallway and the clock in the kitchen.
    Happy weekend from Spain x
