ONE ROOM INSPIRATION :: MINIMAL MOROCCAN

ONE ROOM INSPIRATION :: MINIMAL MOROCCAN

If you’ve been following Cassandra during her adventures in Morocco, you’ve probably caught the travel bug just like I have. It’s no surprise this month’s One Room Inspiration is a minimal Moroccan hotel that is filled with color and charm. Take a look at the impressive Hotel Riad El Fenn. This hotel first popped up in my […]

A SCANDINAVIAN HOME WITH INDOOR-OUTDOOR CHARM

162

I will be the first to admit that my threshold for minimal Scandinavian design is nearing its limits. While part of me really truly appreciates the clean, minimalist style, sometimes it goes a bit too far and feels impersonal to me. But if there’s one thing that can remedy that problem… it’s an abundance of plants. And […]

    I love scandinavian style, it’s so simple and plain, you can calm down in this interiors. I could spend all day long in such interiors.

    Scandinavian design was the style that first piqued my interest in design like 10 years ago largely because it was just so DIFFERENT from anything I had ever seen in homes growing up. It opened my eyes to the fact that there are so many different styles. So I will always have a special place in my heart for it, but I also completely agree that my personal tastes are veering further and further from that look. I need more character, more layers. You’re right though, plants help everything!

OUTDOOR DINING STYLE WITH YLIVING

Slowly but surely the warmer weather is creeping in around here, and I’m already dreaming about summertime out in the backyard, huddled around our firepit late into the evening with friends. But this year, I’d love to add to that scene with a little outdoor dining style… I love the idea of a huge dining table […]

AL FRESCO IN THE CITY WITH CRATE & BARREL

For the first time in my life, I have a rooftop deck to enjoy sunny days on. For years, I haven’t even had a little patio or patch of grass to call my own, so you better believe I’m excited to spend hours enjoying my city views and barbecues and many many evenings of entertaining […]

    Oh my gosh what a beautiful summer dinner set up! I love the color pallet of turquoise and black, they are not two colors that I would initially think to pair together but it is working soo well here.
    Love all these Paola Navone designs, especially the great dishes. And the fish platter = perfection!

    This setup is pure perfection! Every city girls dreams of having ANY sort of outdoor space to call their own. I hope you enjoy every minute of the summer in your urban oasis and here’s hoping for a warm Fall!

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.
