Euro Trash : Annie Brahler’s Home
May 2, 2012


It’s true, I’m a long time fan of Euro Trash.  So naturally, I was super excited to see designer Annie Brahler’s home featured in House Beautiful this month.  Dreamy, right?

I can tell you that her home is even more beautiful in person….I’ve been there.  In fact a few pieces from her home + Euro Trash are now happily living at my abode.  A few years back, after learning about Euro Trash (and that it was only a few hours away from me), I decided to take a little trip with my mom and my friend, Jess.  We drove a couple of hours south in my husbands pick up truck with trailer attached (yes, I’m totally serious).  I had no idea whether the trailer was necessary or not but a girl has got to be prepared.

Annie was kind enough to show us her stunning home and I secretly was hoping that my car would break down and that we would all be stranded with no where to go.  I could just imagine myself staying in one of those gorgeous rooms, sipping a cup of tea and reading Austen (sigh).  Alas, no breakdown but I still enjoyed soaking in every detail of the home as well as talking with Annie about her work and style.

I did come back with a few things which are, honestly, two of my favorite pieces in my home.  The thing I was most taken with in Annie’s home was all of the stunning empire chandeliers (which are glowing everywhere).  I knew I had to have one.  And I now do have a sparkling beauty of my own hanging in my bedroom.  It gives off a gorgeous glow every night.  And, I also adore the pretty old settee that sits at the foot of our bed which I brought back that day too.

After my little visit, Annie was kind enough to do an interview for la la Lovely, which you can read here.  I adore her concept on design and style.  I totally related.  It’s def worth a read.
