Interiors in my Moleskine
All hubby Jeff wanted was a comfy leather chair for Father's Day, one that reclined a bit... the feet elevated. That scared me to death, for I have a phobia of "recliners" and all that implies. We found one that I could live with... introducing the "Drake", a lovely soft, brown leather wing back that still looks like a chair. It sits in the corner near the fireplace with my favorite stained glass lamp. The bamboo shades stretch across the double set of sliding doors that look out onto our pool area... the shades add a lovely texture and warmth to the room. I love seeing him sitting here at night as we have our coffee and kahlua together. He doesn't look "old" at all... very sophisticated. Yeah, very classy. :) And yes, I really do have "wine-colored" walls, for I love jewel tones.
Done with ink and watercolors in my large Moleskine.
