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 […]

HOUSE TOUR :: A LITTLE LA IN NYC…

02mckinley-levine-slide-RD6U-jumbo

I should really know better than to try and leave my posts until the last minute when I’m traveling in New York! There are far too many distractions here that keep me off my laptop! So today’s post is a quickie… but a goodie. Infusing two of my most favorite things together – a laid […]

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 7.17

thomas obrien west village loft kitchen

I’ve been paying an absurd amount of attention to kitchens lately. Why? Well, on top of the small remodel we did in our office studio, I’ve been slowly updating the kitchen in my loft, and of course daydreaming of remodeling the one in my guy’s house too. It’s an overwhelming task, and the more I look […]

    I love how casual that kitchen is. And the color of the cabinets are different from what you see every day. It is a beautiful space. I agree with you I have been loving brass pulls lately too, but wonder how it would be with the stainless steel. Good luck!

    I agree with what Lianna said. This kitchen reads so casual, it just invites you in. And the storage, like the OP said, amazing! Practical + Good looking is always great. The wallcovering, or brick facade, whatever it is, also provides a nice pop in the space. Same with the faux or true granite against the wall…

HOW TO :: STYLE YOUR COFFEE TABLE

how to style your coffee table 6

Now that I’m back from vacation, my big summer project of finishing up my loft continues! I’ve been slowly adding pieces, the latest of which is the perfect coffee table and a few new accessories from HD Buttercup. All of which is a great excuse to give you a peek at how things are progressing, and do a […]

    Great tips! And I especially like the use of the tray, I think that’s exactly what my living room coffee table is missing – thanks for helping me figure that out!

    I love the storage your coffee table offers! I wish I could style my coffee table more often, but my cat is always knocking everything off of it.

    Cassandra, the loft is looking SO good! I am head over heels for your dining room chairs. Green happens to be my youngest son’s favorite color too. We are redoing his room right now and I’ve been looking for green accessories with a masculine touch. Not easy to find. Perhaps I’ll send you a pic once we’re done. And…I have an old sofa that still works but isn’t “me” anymore. I’ve been debating on taking off the back cushions and replacing with comfy pillows instead. You’ve given me the inspiration to move forward! It just may be the facelift it needs.

    Just discovered your blog and I am obsessed! Your sofa is so lovely. Can you share information about the pillows and throw?

    A lovely coffee table set-up. Im English, therefore drink a lot of tea and therefore love the whole coffee/side table thing to allow me to indulge in tea drinking whilst in the lounge!! But, I find they can become so cluttered and messy after a while. I love how you’ve incorporated the items on the table into the design of the whole room. Whilst still having books/mags you’ve also added some lovely features, e.g. I love the tray. It all looks really neat but very stylish too. Thanks for fab ideas on how to incorporate a necessary/useful item as a design feature.

    In love with the chairs around the dining table. Any chance you can point me in the direction of where to find them?
    Thanks!

    Oooh, can you tell us more about the pillows and how you styled the sofa? I love those blue dotted pillows. Will this trick to replace the back pillows work on all types of sofas?

HIGH SHINE IN THE KITCHEN!

gold kitchen cabinets fiona lynch

I like shiny things. I love hanging out in my kitchen. So, I should probably really really love this mini metallic trend of super glamorous cabinets in materials like brass and mirror… But the practical side of me just sees little babes running around putting their fingerprints all over these beauties and me constantly right behind them […]

    Maybe best not to have a husband either if you want to keep these pristine. i don’t feel like these are kitchens that see actual use but they sure look nice in pictures.

    These kitchens are beauties – I agree with you though, they are apparently made for looking at not actually cooking in.

    (Same finger print idea goes for black kitchen cabinets too.) From experience, husbands don’t always use the hardware on cabinets either – which makes for finger prints in the most unlikely of spots.
