ONE ROOM INSPIRATION :: DARK + PREPPY

gingham study_1

Ok, I know. Dark and preppy aren’t normally words you put together. But maybe that’s why I’ve always been so into this gingham-covered room for so long now… It’s a little bit traditional, a little bit badass. I mean, it takes guts to cover an entire room with gingham, after all. And I love the […]

    I love dark & preppy – it’s kind of more like country club or a hunt room. I always remember a quote I read in a magazine that said ‘one thing overdone is kind of like not overdoing it’. I always tell myself that! :)

A STUDY IN SMALL LIVING :: SASA ANTIC

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 […]

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 5.2

Is it cheating to take my Room of the Week from a post from earlier this week? Maaaaaybe. But this bathroom is so cool, that it deserves a second look. And here’s why… If you had asked me what kind of home I thought this beautiful space might reside in, I’d guess some kind of […]

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 6.27

Recently, I’ve been daydreaming a bit about relocating…  and I’m quite aware that along with that will likely come a smaller apartment! So, whenever I come across studios that are making a good use of space, I try and tuck them away for future reference – and this one definitely made the inspiration file… Granted, […]

    WOW! I live in a studio downtown in a major city and this is huge compared to what I am used to for space. I have 475 sq. feet, but its gorgeous!

    Kelly, After almost 40 years in CT. I too am looking to relocate and will be “downsizing” a bit, but community and a sense of place and just loving where you live is sooo much more important than a BIG pad. As designers its hard because we’re always picking up just one more piece and before you know it…. too much “stuff” Good luck. WOuld love to know where you’re considering. I’m narrowed down to about 6 places. Good luck

    Ok…that is simply fabulous! I am so inspired to transform my console table (a boring brown … I’m so over brown!) into our bar “cart” as well actually. Love, Love, Love. Great work!

    Well, this post makes it look so easy…

    I have always wanted to re-do a piece of furniture with an update to color but have yet to be brave enough. Perhaps it is time to jump in and try.

    I love your new little bar!
    I’m so into green at the moment! By you painting it has turned a plain, simple, run-of-the-mill, brown piece of furniture into something that looks unique, fun and very much a designer statement piece of furniture!
    Love it!
