Traditional Home Magazine

I'm wrapping up another piece for the Boston Globe today, this time I'm showing some pendants and chandeliers. One that I'm including is the stunning Coral Pendant from Design Within Reach. I found this fantastic image on a blog called As I See It -- the blogger makes a good point about this particular light because it really is hard to imagine it in an actual space outside of the DWR showroom. Seeing it here in this living room over at Traditional Home magazine really shows off just how lovely it is in a 'real' home.

In addition to that beautiful image, Traditional Home has a very inspiring website filled with large, full-color photographs. I'm not exactly a traditional girl when it comes to decorating, I appreciate these rooms and find many of them to have elements that I love. I can't help feeling a little left out when I look at these rooms though, I don't ever see myself living such a luxurious lifestyle but it is fun to peek in on those who do. Here are some of my favorite rooms for a little Friday inspiration. :)

And don't forget to check out Marcia Cross' chocolate and aqua velvet trailer on the set of Desperate Housewives at Universal Studios. A very swanky trailer!
