Tricias' Attic...

I needed some serene, clean images today and could not go past one of my favourite Designers, Tricia Foley. These beautiful images are of her tiny Attic space she has remodelled to fit a guest room and powder room. This little Minette sink saves loads of space ans is so cute. The wall above has been built out to fit her guests' toiletries.

From the doorway, you can see just how small the space is, but with a mass of white paint it looks much more roomy than it is.

Tricia collects vintage baskets, bags and trays and has used them in this space to create a sense of warmth and texture and for little treats for her guests.

The whole space is 14 x 24 feet! You wouldn't think so though.
She designed this drop leaf table to accommodate the space as a normal table wouldn't fit up the tiny staircase of her 1845 Long Island home.

Wicker trunks hold all of the necessary linens like vintage Marseilles spreads and white fluffy towels. I love those slippers.

The wooden grid came from a mail room. Tricia painted it white and added cup hooks for guests' clothes. I can't wait to have our home back to some sort of serene order, but in the meantime Tricia's' home will do just fine.
Have a great Weekend,

    After I just became engaged ever since my fiance proposed to me with a gorgeous diamond engagement ring from we moved into a new place together.

    We want our new space to look romantic like this especially with all pretty accessories and decor like the candles and baskets. Very cozy!
