INTERIORS TO INSPIRE :: A BOHO CHALET

bohemian-chalet-1

What’s a girl to do this time of year when her heart is dreaming of sunny California escapes, but her feet are firmly planted in piles of snow? Well, decorate of course…. Thankfully, I’m skipping the snow at the moment since I traded my usual Fashion Week trip for one to Morocco (5 days and counting!), but […]

    Wow…this space is amazing. The natural woods and bright colors are paradise. I can’t get over the space and how tall the ceilings are. It’s truly a site to see in person I’m sure. The inside Cali-boho vibe with a beautiful winter white on the outside screams America.

    Hard to believe and I fear for my life saying this (lol) but those of us in sunny and hot southern California would love to have a bit of weather! An endless summer is no fun when you are a skier and lover of the seasons. I would love to live in these photos right now and that chalet boho chic look is so comforting.

      Diane, I totally remember that feeling when I lived in LA. Seattle is a happy medium – we’re getting some nice mild sunshine at the moment, but we definitely get our seasons too. But I miss snow now and again!

    This is indeed such a unique take to home styling. Though for us, there are some misses like that of the kitchen island and counter but the bold and fearless approach is endearing in itself. It’s refreshing.

INTERIORS TO INSPIRE :: A SPANISH ISLE ESCAPE

Casa Eugenia Silva_outdoor

As the days heat up around here, I’ve had a craving for worldly escapes… or at least potentially transforming my home into one. At my guy’s house there’s what I romanticize to be a sunroom where the floor is covered with large terra cotta tile that doesn’t fit the house at all, but if I were […]

    Wow what a beautiful home. I love the kitchen and then those outdoor spaces..wow! I would love to be sitting out by that pool right now!
    I love the idea of a nice rustic wood dining room or kitchen table, the one you found here looks great!

SUMMER REDECORATING WITH SERENA & LILY

indoor outdoor inspiration1

I think I mentioned in my loft inspiration post how much I really want the space to have this urban escape kind of vibe – a little bohemian, but more about feeling like you’ve just walked into a totally different space than you would expect in a brick loft in the city. Naturally, I’ve been […]

    I love, love your Urban Oasis mood board. The table and chairs in the bottom picture are gorgeous. Simple yet serene. It almost says “Beachy Chic” to me. You could still mix in some green if you decided to go in this direction. Looking forward to pics of the finished loft! Have a beautiful week.

      Thanks Tammie! I’m leaning more towards the Urban Oasis board myself – I cannot wait to share the loft once it’s all ready! Giving myself lots of time to get it perfect this time around, and it feels good to really think through the design process!

    My favorite design style in the universe is the Tuscan style and color palette. Rusts, and beige’s and deep reds with earthy/pea greens. So even though your Urban Oasis has more of a tropical rather than Tuscan feel I still gravitate toward that peaceful and easy going yet fun and classy look that it brings.

    I also think that it plays along with the city mentality perfectly. The way that it is very modern with the neutral colors and small but bold accents. The whites and beige’s also open up the space alot more rather than a dark green making it look more enclosed. The urban oasis gives the loft a really professional, fresh look while adding, like you said, some foreign spice to it.

    The question comes down to this: would you rather have an all around eclectic look that’s bold and makes a HUGE statement, or would you rather go for a clean cut, put together look that still has the potential to be played up?

    You can always add more, but you can’t take away after it’s done ;)

    Ahh I saw those green chevron chairs in the catalog and I fell in love with them!! Both boards are good and both seem like they would be relaxing.

COOLING OFF WITH COBALT

house beautiful dining room in blues

I’ve been infatuated lately with the combination of cobalt and black – a color scheme we’ve been seeing on the runway for fall, but also one I’ve noticed popping up more in interiors too… There’s something fresh but calm about this pair, and I especially love this scheme as a modern look infused with worldly influences […]

    The blues are giving an element of a modern contemporary theme. But the dresser, woven chair and mirrored box are so traditional and ethnic. A perfect blend!

    Where did the blue and white woven chair come from? When I click on it, I am forwarded to West Elm, but that is not their chair.

A MARVEL IN MARBLE…

morocco-home-00_151416597332

I’m not sure that there’s a more heavenly material to me than marble. It’s quite ridiculous how something even as simple as a bookend or dish made of this substance can send me swooning. Those who are lucky enough to have larger pieces – perhaps a coffee table or kitchen island – I already envy. […]

    Stunning interior – the depth of colour, pattern and material used in this place is stunning. I am instantly drawn to the abstract lighting features in each room. Heaven!!!
