ROOM OF THE WEEK 4.10

Since moving into my loft, I’ve been consuming inspiration for open plan living like crazy. It’s such a different form of decorating. Granted, my little urban oasis is nowhere close to being as grand as this converted barn in Malibu belonging to cinematographer Darius Wolski and his wife Rebecca – who happens to be a […]

ROOM OF THE WEEK 4.3

With so much brick in my new place, I’ve inevitably stumbled black into my comfort zone of a very black and white palette in planning the decor, so this dining room by Brooke Harris had me at hello… The key to this look (for me, anyways) is the addition of wood, plants, and inviting textures […]

      I think that’s the Robert Abbey “Bling” pendant light and it comes in three sizes – you can find it on ylighting.com, I tried to copy the link but it was huge

WHITE ON WHITE

Following on the heels of last week’s post on ceiling medallions, a similar obsession has cropped up for me. The art of white on white moldings and decorative elements…. A few weeks ago we shot an amazing fashion editorial at the Codor Design showroom, which renewed my fascination with their amazing mirrors and prompted some […]

    White is crisp and clean. Another great way to add “white on white” in your home is to use a paintable texture wallcovering/wallpaper and neglect to paint it! Great for texture.

    Cassandra, do you know about the decorative wall flats at Inhabit Living? http://www.inhabitliving.com/modern-walls-floors/wall-flats-3d-decorative-wall-panels.html

    Great for white on white! They just finished a sale, unfortunately, but perhaps they would strike a deal to be featured on your blog? The company is based in Indianapolis, and I found it while search for unique duvet covers. (I live in Indiana, too.)

    I love your blog! Thanks for the inspiration. Stacey M.

    I have to admit I’m a big fan of white! It’s such an easy bright color. It’s nice to add texture to a room though, but if you can keep it white that’s all the better! Love your picks (that headboard is absolutely amazing)!

    We do white on white all the time down here in South Florida and these are new fresh ways that I have not seen. These ideas give you a wonderful and livable space that can be easily updated when you feel like having something new without having to redo the backgrounds. I especially love the “carved out” wall in your photo. This could be reimagined in never ending variations. The found object mirror and sculpture are also really intriguing. Whimsical yet sophisticated once painted the refined white. The headboard (maybe a painted stone?) is very glamorous as well. Great finds and thanks!

ROOM OF THE WEEK 2.13

Martin Hahn for Real Living Australia

I finally got some photos today of my new loft which I’m going to share with you all soon, but in the meantime, I’ve been collecting major inspiration for it, and this space is at the top of that list… I’ve never lived in a space with high ceilings before, and I can’t even begin […]

    I put my sofa in the bar space to capitalize on my skyline view. People always commented how much they loved it and it opened up the space. Do it!

    Cheers to the new space and have a great Valentine’s Day!

INTERIORS TO INSPIRE :: MODERN NEUTRALS IN PARIS

I mentioned earlier this week that I’m on a bit of a neutrals kick – but not my usual black and white fare. Instead, I’m being drawn to layers of cream, putty, and mushroom. Which are all just really nicer ways of saying beige… But, if anyone can make beige un-boring, its certainly the French […]

    Really like how you can pull inspiration from the photos and give examples on how to recreate it. As you mentioned, adding moulding can be a simple way to take your room decor to the next level.

    Simplicity with a pop of pattern and masculinity is the way to go. I’ll take that tufted leather chair on wheels any day, awesome.

    ooh, that wallpaper is KILLER. I like the mixed textures, too; when they’re all similar colors, the textures help keep it all from blending together.

    So lovely. There is something so nice about a minimalist look. You’re right – you don’t need much to make this room any better. But, that wallpaper completely transforms the room and I love it! That is one nice looking leather chair. Glad to know it can be customized in different colors :)

    So gorgeous. Sometimes, less can be more, especially with these beautiful pieces you’ve picked! I just love that pale grey/blue paint color/am stalking it for my living room. Dig your vibes, lady.
