ROOM TO BREATHE…

Roll03_Shot55-1157x800

Originally, I was going to share one room of this house with you all – a calm oasis of simplicity and architecture in this stunning living space… With a view I would very much like to be enjoying myself right now. All summer I had planned on making August my calm month. A month to enjoy […]

    These images are stunning especially that ocean view!
    This interior has very clean lines.
    I like the mix of styles and the artwork on the first image.
    I live in Italy and here we feel summer is coming to an end!
    As my kids have three and a half months off I’m kind of looking forward to the back to school routines!
    It’s been great, but…..

PRINT + PATTERN :: 5 WAYS TO STYLE BANANA LEAF PRINTS

banana-leaf-stripes-and-wovens

Remember last year when everywhere you looked you saw banana leaf prints? Everything from bikinis to espadrilles to iphone cases were covered with the iconic style. While the trend has died down a bit (and I do mean a bit) I for one will never tire of this tropical style in the home. And, just in case your on the […]

    Just like probably everyone else I have loved seeing banana leaf prints everywhere but I had no idea how to incorporate it into my own home with out getting new curtains or wallpapering a space. I love how you simply added the pattern by a pillow on your bed, it looks wonderful paired with your other patterns!

    I love both the bedroom mixes! I like how the bold print can be included in a room without overpowering it. I think I am in need of some banana print for this upcoming summer in the southern hemisphere! Thanks for the ideas. :)

    I love that powder room! I’d love to incorporate the banana leaf print into my camper! We go camping in the summer so often and most trailers have that yucky ‘ready-made’ wallpaper (with the light colours that are all swirly with 90′s throwback gold trim). Since we’re already glamping (our camper is 28 feet long and we run the AC 24/7) why not dress the camper appropriately!

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 8.14

emilia-fanjul-pfeifler-locust-valley-05_145715576070

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 DOZEN HOME ACCENTS TO GET YOU READY FOR FALL

As if the coming of fall wasn’t reason enough to start thinking about nesting, some of my favorite home stores have already begun changing their collections over to some gorgeous goodies for my favorite season. This past weekend I got lost online for hours dreaming of potential updates for the house… and these are my […]

    I love your choices! I’m really into marble and gold at the moment.
    As I live in Italy not far from Carrara, I love the white Carrara marble, I think it’s amazing and am trying to incorporate some into my new house build!
    I also really like the shape and the piping on the settee!

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 8.7

As much as I hate to admit it, my thoughts lately turned towards fall. I’ve made it a goal of mine to spend August really trying to get organized before things start to pick up around here, so rather than having my nesting focused on the home, it’s actually all about the office right now… So it’s […]
