It's Snowing!!!!!

Today Metro Detroit woke up to our first morning of a solid dusting of snow.  The high winds that slammed the Midwest were less than favorable, but the snow that was escorted in is getting me in the holiday spirit. While I sit at my desk and watch the snow blustering across the sidewalk I am thinking about Charlotte Moss's spread in this month's Elle Decor.  This Aspen retreat seems like the perfect place to snuggle up and spend a winter afternoon. This home has so many things I love.  From the blue and white pottery, to the animal prints, tartans, rich oil paintings (both portraits and landscapes) and amazing light fixtures, this ski retreat really does epitomize the elegance of a snowy hideaway.

  1. Love her vaulted ceilings! But what is with that carved eagle??

  2. Love, Love, LOVE the vaulted ceiling. I don't know about that eagle either... it's a little heavy. Looks like it would be more at home in the oval office, rather than the ski sactuary!
