Have you seen this yet? I think it’s been floating around the blogosphere a bit since it was posted on Shelterpop at the beginning of May.

Charlize Theron’s house was put up for sale recently and it is just stunning. I mean, your house should be stunning if it’s listed for $7 million, right? The photos of the house are really beautiful, but this one in particular caught my eye.


I just think it’s so pretty. It’s got everything I love in a beautiful room. Dark wood, big rugs, arches, sunlight, worn leather, pillows, clean lines, white, and a fire place. But mostly what pushes this photo over the edge for me is the seating around the fireplace. Those built in benches are uniquely awesome. What’s also noteworthy about this space is that I can imagine sitting here with a room full of people or all alone with hot coffee and a magazine (most likely next to that fire). Oh, and with a quilt- of course.
