GET THE LOOK :: A ROMANTIC BERRY HUED TABLETOP

DARK + ROMANTIC TABLE SETTING

When we stumbled upon this wine and berry hued tabletop, I knew it would be the perfect starting point for some Valentine’s Day tabletop inspiration. Taking a cue from this lavish setting, we recreated our own version of this dark and romantic table… Overflowing floral arrangements of saturated peonies, berries and a bit of greenery add depth and texture. I’d tuck the bundles into vintage brass urns […]

    Looks perfect! I will definitely use your idea to set up the mood for Valentine’s day. Me and my husband rarely have the time to have a nice romantic dinner so I decided to do something special. Have a lovely day!

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 6.25

cr_xhrpoUrVx (1)

Sometimes a ‘room’ happens to be a breakfast nook, living room, and kitchen all in one – such is the life of the city dweller. Tackling these types of spaces can always be a challenge, and when I do them I tend to lean towards a lot of neutrals so that they space doesn’t overwhelm. […]

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 2.27

And now for something totally different… this dining room. I’m obsessed with the combinations going on here. The cream banquette, the brass base on that dramatic table, and the rich berry tones in those low profile chairs. Not to mention the brutalist sconces in contrast with an insanely classic chandelier. Everything about this room is […]

BOUGAINVILLEA BLISS

I dont’ know about you, but I have so many images in my files that I return to time and time again for inspiration. This is one of them. I absolutely love Bougainvillea – it reminds me of some of my most favorite places in the world – so for me, this photo captures pure […]

    I love bougainvillea as well. The color of the flowers are simply stunning. The pink is great, but I think my favorite bougainvillea color is the orange flower.

ROOM OF THE WEEK 11.8

Pablo Paniagua

This gorgeous space has been haunting me on Pinterest – every time I see it I fall in love all over again! Which is why it absolutely deserves a Room of the Week title, and a full tour! I think by this point we can safely say that I’m a traditional glamourist at heart when […]

    Cassandra- I love, love, love this space (as I pin each photo). It might be a guy thing. I swear there must be something in the water in Spain, because this is the second Spanish designers I’ve come across with an incredible design aesthetic. Thanks for introducing me to Pablo Paniagua.

    You’re right about the overstyling, it definitely needs a little breathing room throughout. Wow to that ceiling height, those windows and that raspberry couch!

    I love this room, I blogged about it a couple weeks ago. I think I mainly love color palette. I definitely agree it could use some paring down in the accessories department but I forgive it since I love the rug so much.

    I count eleven tables and not one with enough room to comfortably host a cocktail! Definitely over styled. That said, I love the detail of the yellow back on some of the neutral pillows.

    I think this space is really beautiful — especially the colors. But my eye is going every which way, trying to find something to focus on! I do think a little simplifying could go a long way in this space as it seems just a tad overdone. Still, lots of gorgeous elements goin’ on in here!

    Since I’m “all about curves” (arches, spheres, etc.) the geometrics give me pause…you could do “wonders” with it though…. franki
