PERFECT PALETTES :: RETRO REVIVAL

retro-yellow-pink-burnt-orange-palette

Whenever I’m in an inspiration funk for something to write about on the blog – usually first thing on a Monday morning – I dive into my color files to find something that’s speaking to me. Today? It was this… I’ve really been into these retro-inspired color palettes lately. That vintage brown. A little mustard yellow. […]

    Perfect timing! Though I gravitate to a palette of white and neutrals with texture and maybe some deep emerald green thrown in, I’m trying to be a little bolder in the new place I’m sharing with my boyfriend. Some new-to-us mid century chairs with bright blue upholstery are the jumping off point for this brave new world of colour and this is the kind of fun clashy-contrast that I want to pair it with.

ONE ROOM INSPIRATION :: A BOLD JEWEL BOX

Tilton Fenwick sofa detail

I’ve enjoyed putting my sourcing skills to the test lately with these more unique inspiration rooms, but this bold beauty designed by design duo Tilton Fenwick might have been the greatest challenge yet! Barely a peek into the brightly colored space offers a glimpse at how saturated it is with print, pattern and jewel tones… And, indeed, […]

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 8.14

I must be getting a bit more traditional in my old age… or maybe just seeing the cozy comfort that comes with a bedroom that looks like this. Either way, I’m finding it amazing that I’m actually into this floor-to-ceiling wallpaper and printed carpet!? Since when? But there’s something about it that seems like the perfect spot to make a […]

    I’m not usually a fan of floor-to-ceiling wallpaper but they did a really nice job keeping it stylish and up to date. All the patterns and colors work well together. Beautiful spaces!

    I agree, it actually looks really cosy doesn’t it. I think because the bed is such a bold block of colour and a real central feature, it allows the heavy pattern to work and not look too overbearing.

    I agree with Chichi, the bed makes a big difference. Not my style by any means, but I could sleep a night there! lol

A STUDY IN SMALL LIVING :: SASA ANTIC

sasa5

The first thing that caught my eye about this beautiful apartment was the perfect blue cabinetry in the kitchen… I absolutely love the effect against the marble, with a touch of high gloss black. It wasn’t until I started peeking through the whole home that I realized it was a perfect study in small living […]

INSPIRED BY ART :: ‘SKY STAIRS’

NYSD ronald bricke bedroom aqua and purple

Whenever I see a color combo I love, I stick it away in a little file for future inspiration. Such was the case with this vibrant paint situation in the bedroom belonging to Ronald Bricke… A bit intense, yes, but beautiful all the same. I especially liked the addition of wood and a hint of […]
