Good Ideas - Stone & Plaster

As far as I'm concerned anything along the lines of stone, marble, or plaster is a good idea.  And if it involves a statue, well that's even better!

I want a statue in my house.  And, those beat up outdoor chairs make me very happy.

This is from a Bobby McAlpine house. Balustrades holding fire wood - nice.

Also, from my hero McAlpine is this sink.  That's classic sexy.

Last week I mentioned I had a design idea for  the walls of
my outdoor dining/lounging porch.
This photo and the next should be a good hint.

This photo was one of a series highlighting furniture in
 World of Interiors and granted this was styled and photographed in a
museum - but there's an idea here.

  1. Have you ever been to Sir John Soane's Museum in London? You'd be in heaven.

  2. Photo 2 could totally be your center hall.
