American Horror Story: Window

If you know me, you know that I am always checking out people's windows.  I can't pass a window without objectifying it.  And the window in the new American Horror Story: Roanoke (Season 6) farmhouse is particularly eye-catching .  

After watching the first episode, I was convinced that the window was flipped (in a spooky way) when looking at if from the interior:

But then in episode two I was able to grab his shot, so the upside down one must be somewhere else in the house.  Haven't gotten my bearings in this set yet.

The Romance Continues: Fiddle Leaf Fig

A year ago I wrote about my love affair with fiddle leaf fig plants.   My passion has cooled a bit because you can't throw a decorative coaster with out hitting one now a days.

I have wanted to write about the Coven House in American Horror Story for quite some times, but what can be said of perfection?  

There are many sites that help "get the look" (Domain Home, Design Sponge, etc.), but what are the design principle?  

As far as I can see they are:

--Start with an ornate space (moldings galore) and then paint everything white on white on white.  

--Throw in some light grey, beige, tan, pale wood, etc. - just enough to make the white base feel layered and effortless.

--Select a few moments of dark wood to slash through the space.

--Bare minimum of furnishings (this is not a home of collectors).  Keep the furniture spindly, classic, and feminine.

--Hang some old paintings on the wall in thick gilded frames to remind everyone that the home is old-school and classy-as-hell. 

--Voila! Wear black at all times so you stand out in every room.
