This dated Santa Barbara home was given a facelift by interior designer Erin Martin.  The main focus was to apply Venetian plaster to the walls and add the limestone fireplace. The look was finished with beautiful antiques.

You know that I am dying for those pillows!  ENJOY!

House Beautiful has certainly put out a beautiful magazine for the February issue. I hope that you enjoyed this post.

See you soon,

This is my favorite post in a while. I love the neutral, textured design. I love zebra, and I am dying to cover something in zebra hide.

Mary Ann,
I AM JEALOUS! Just enough to cover what I want to cover would be an entire pelt, which means couple of thousand or more! Leopard would do too!

Hi Theresa
Thank you for your comment on my blog this morning.......I'll look forward to hearing from you again. I have some black leather in my inventory that I'm planning to use for pillows (I'm going to quilt it) but unfortunately I have no zebra.
