Tricia Foley

Here is one of Tricia Foleys rooms. It is actually at her home in Long Island. I just love the way she has used comfortable and practical slip covers on the lounge and chair and kept the calming tones of Taupe, Wheat etc along side the fresh greens and whites of the Hydrangeas (I wish mine went that colour instead of pink, blue or purple). She has used the natural colour in the fire surround which works so well with the white fireplace.
I also love the groupings of art about the Mantel (see the collar, love that). Her Home is devine. I just cant ever see that look dating, ever.
I have just used that look in our Matser Bedroom around the fireplace, and also in the Kitchen. We have a late 1800's home with a huge mantel in the kitchen an a lovely old one in the Master room which we have just restored. We used Stone paint in 'Jodphur' against 'Chalk USA' by Dulux for the surrounds. It makes the white so clean and stone colour look so fresh. I will show you some more next blog. xx


  1. I will be having a closer look at her. What a nice room. I think I remember a piece on her in Country Home.

  2. I ADORE Tricia's style...and her home is to DIE for!!! Makes me happy everytime I see it...what a lucky lady she is with that house!!
