ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 2.27

staffan tollgard

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

lonny magazine designer guild shades

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.

    Loving the bright pink! I have been using the “paper flower” bougainvillea in pink for my hanging wire basket for several summers here…The color of Love!

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

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 11.1

jackie astier // elle decor bedroom

Was is just me, or was October a crazy little month? I have a feeling that things aren’t about to slow down either (I mean… the holidays are pretty much upon us, people) so today, I’m thinking we all deserve a room that – even if we can only go to in our heads – […]

    I love that mid-century style sofa at the foot of the bed. It’s such a clever idea! We have one just like it that we need to re-upholster… badly! But, once we do, this may not be a bad idea for our bedroom! Thanks for the inspiration!!

    You know, I moved our setee’ from the living room to the foot of our bed and I sit there SO MUCH MORE than I ever did before. Now I’m going to move my outdoor lutyens bench to the foot of the guest room bed. Do it! franki

PIN PALS :: PLUMS + SPARKLE + ROSES

pinterest mashup - plums

Have you ever looked at your pins on pinterest and seen a reoccurring theme? It happens to me ALL the time. My eyes immediately go to the images that are matching up – usually due to a color or motif. So I thought it would be fun to share some of those with you in a new […]
