Let's dissect a picture, shall we?

If this were a spelling bee I would have just gotten "dissect" wrong.

I've spent the last few weeks being a little more social than normal.  It's probably good, development of inter-personal skills and all (and seeing as how it's been so much fun), but sometimes I want to call a full retreat.
At any rate, my home projects haven't moved very far in a while.

So, to fill in the home decorating hole in my heart I am feeling, let's take this picture from my April "House Beautiful" magazine that I am in love with and find what I like and what I don't.
(exhilarating, I know)


Well, first off: I heart these eggs in display cases so much!
They are my favorite colors, they are interesting, and the dome glass covers are just so pretty.
Plus, museum feel.  Like. A lot.

Continuing the theme in the background: covered nests!  How fun.

Uh, I think we already established with my living room wall of pictures that I love the whole repeating dark frame thing.
Plus, I am insane about trees.  Great picture series.

Hello gorgeous multi-story high windows.  I will have you someday.

The only slightly off note (in my opinion)?
I can't look at this light fixture without wanting to reach over and straighten some stuff...It's driving me nuts.

When I looked at that picture the very first thing I noticed was the windows. They are pretty ridiculously awesome. And I agree about the crooked-esque chandelier. Definitely would be my lighting choice.

Whoops, forgot to pop in the word "not" to that last sentence. Definitely NOT my choice of lighting.
