Marvelous Molly

Molly Frey has got to be one of my favourite designers. 
 I love her subdued use of
colours of the sea in pastel shades.
 She creates a beach inspired vibe that  is not only airy but
 at the same time  cozy
as she mixes it up with both traditional
 and contemporary touches.


I can almost hear the waves crashing just outside
this living room. Look how inexpensively this look
can be done with kitchen cabinetry instead of built-ins. A sheet of bead board instead
of custom panelling, a second hand table cut down, aqua mason jars and star fish
as accessories, a soft pale blue, white trim, a shag rug, gorgeous hydrangeas and your done!

Who could ever feel sad, in this light and bright charming kitchen.
The nice thing about that island is 
that it isn't so wide that  it  require a ladder to 
climb on top just to give it a wipe but it
sure could host a good party.

Such an incredibly wonderful play on texture
in the monochromatic colours of beach sand.

Uncluttered, lots of white trim everywhere agains barely there colour, 
beadboard or panelled walls and white slipcovered 
furniture with subtle hits of seaside colours  
just make me sigh.

Seriously, I must have subliminally painted my door blue 
now that I see this picture again!

How gorgeous is this little bar niche.
I love her choice of artwork as well.

What makes her extra special is her ability to create incredible bones
for a space and then she tops it beautifully like a 
rich delicious icing on a cake.

One of her more colourful rooms and still so serene to look at.
