Honestly, Emily,

Just one!?!? Actually, I now have a Ideabook of "Favorite Spaces". These are the photos which I happen to come across and when I try to add into an Ideabook a little message pops up telling me that the photo already exists in my Ideabook. Must love it!! So into favorite spaces it goes....

However, I am partial to this one. Something about it speaks to me of an older era, one in which we all moved at a slower pace and were able to sit for awhile and enjoy the sunshine! I look at this one frequently, usually right after a round of heavy client emails in the morning followed by a round of carpooling in the afternoon :)

Just one was impossible. Even just four was very, very hard - there are so many great ones!

Parkwood Road Residence Master Bedroom



Parkwood Road Residence Master Bedroom 2


My favorite, for the use of colors, the details, and the accessibility of the designer, Martha O'Hara. She always responds to questions and is very pleasant. I have some good ideas for paint colors from her work.

There's a good reason why the first photo was added to over 193,000 idea books!

Here's my favorite because of the mix of modern and traditional. I love the neutral color pallet and various textures. It's funky and reserved at the same time.

Ann, I also love "Renovation" in your second post. I covet that bird painting over the fireplace, but I cannot source it. Anyone know who the artist is?

Thealings, I agree about the art in the "Renovation" picture. The owner said it was reasonably priced by an Austin artist. When I read your comment above, I posted another question to the thread to see if we can figure out the artist's contact info.

The picture of the beautiful bedroom below stayed on my computer for a long time, it was the inspiration for our Master bedroom for months. I saw others before this but kept changing my mind, this one was the only one that stayed and I still love the room layout out and everything about it. So , yes, thumbs up for this picture.

I just spend way too much time trying to retrieve at least one of my favorite Houzz photo. But looking through the collection makes me , time after time so happy. I have been inspired to rearrange with success some furniture in the sitting area. I have a very favorite photo which I call "smalt" . Not only because of the beautiful bedroom, but in addition because I learned a new word for the dark color blue.

To Anne Dee: I love the style of your house very , very much. Too large for a family home in these days. However, One would hope that architects can be inspired designing apartment building (3-4 stories high) in this style. A lot more inspiring than some of those "lego-boxes".

OnePlan, that is a great addition. We were thinking of doing something similar for the basement, but would mean that one would slide either on the bar or in the music room:)

I become obsessed with different images at different times. Right now I am obsessed with this one because I am wanting to do some silver/zinc finishes in my living/dining room. I also love colored and metallic ceilings and the play of the painted wood, the dark wood and the silver chairs is just beautiful here.

Wow - lots here I haven't seen! Houzz offers such a richness of images, it's like wandering through a glorious gallery sometimes.

I have an Ideabook called "Just Because," and another one called "Divine Upholstery" in which I've saved images I really like: The Hill Residence chair Santa Ynez dining room
