This is Martha? She must be amping up the colours since I last looked. I love that wall colour.

Great images. I especially love the third one...the fireplace screen and the secretary are beautiful!

I love these images and that coral/ red shade of paint is luscious!

The combination of green and red in the 3rd photo is something that I really want to try out in one of my rooms. I especially love the first photo - that poppy orange/burnt orange wall color is fabulous!

I have always loved these rooms of Martha's!!
Perfect post for a Chinoiserie Valentine's Day!!

Laura [What I Like] said...

I am ever so taken with that fire guard...and the flowers, of course...nothing better than some over the top intensely colored blooms!

These are all great examples of chinoiserie with an Americana feel - love the tomato red walls in number one also.

Marija said...

The screen in the second picture...love it. Wish I knew more about it!

Amanda said...

fantastic. That first one looks like it's a red-orange with a pale grey-blue. I LOVE that color combo!

Teresa Hatfield said...

That secretaire is gorgeous. Am also loving that round table in the picture that follows. It's pedestal and the carving around the rim is just gorgeous. Not to mention that the flower arrangement is breathtaking. If I had her money, I'd have flowers like that all over my home!

Proper Hunt-I agree-the colors are just perfect.

Martha in red? She does everything so well, it is nice to see her step out of the box although I love her muted pallettes the best. Fun for Vday week, great post!! Kathysue

Reggie Darling said...

These are a particular favorite of mine. The rooms were only temporary, done for a photo shoot before her house in Bedford was renovated and everything was painted gray. Thanks for posting them!

Style Redux 2 said...

Domestic Goddess-These photos definitely show how essential flower arrangements are for staging rooms for photo shoots.

Style Redux 2 said...

Kathysue-These reds are quite muted as well-nice to see red rooms that are more subtle and traditional.

Reggie-So interesting-thanks.
