Vaulted ceilings, warm woods, rustic stone surrounded by walls of windows to bring the outdoors in, you are now standing at the entry way to Rose Mansion by Pamela Galli of La Galleria.
Being taller than your average avie, (stands 7’2″) and claustrophobic in confined spaces, I favor an open space concept. The great room is just that…a GREAT ROOM with views 🙂 There is not a lot of what I call clutter inside my home but each piece that is placed out has meaning to me. Besides, clutter makes it hard to move about for this gal.
The decor in the great room leans towards traditional, or what I like to call classic, comfortable and inviting. The room is anchored by the color green, which represents the color of nature and symbolizes well-being, growth, harmony and balance. Do you detect a little zen there ? Well what ever you want to call it, the color green is soothing for me 🙂
Original stone walls were covered with wood to give the home more of a lodge feel. Ceilings and floors were left intact with persian rugs scattered here and there. Windows were left bare to let the sun shine in. Actually, you can click on the windows and have lacy drapes show from the outside and still see nothing from the inside, which would be a good thing if you have neighbors.
All of the furniture is from La Galleria except the piano, which is from Second Way and by far one of the best purchases ever made. Original photographs, 1st life and 2nd life decorate the walls.
Next time a tour of the southwest and a man cave ‘Cougar’ style. TWMA 🙂
