INTERIORS TO INSPIRE :: MODERN NEUTRALS IN PARIS

I mentioned earlier this week that I’m on a bit of a neutrals kick – but not my usual black and white fare. Instead, I’m being drawn to layers of cream, putty, and mushroom. Which are all just really nicer ways of saying beige… But, if anyone can make beige un-boring, its certainly the French […]

    Really like how you can pull inspiration from the photos and give examples on how to recreate it. As you mentioned, adding moulding can be a simple way to take your room decor to the next level.

    Simplicity with a pop of pattern and masculinity is the way to go. I’ll take that tufted leather chair on wheels any day, awesome.

    ooh, that wallpaper is KILLER. I like the mixed textures, too; when they’re all similar colors, the textures help keep it all from blending together.

    So lovely. There is something so nice about a minimalist look. You’re right – you don’t need much to make this room any better. But, that wallpaper completely transforms the room and I love it! That is one nice looking leather chair. Glad to know it can be customized in different colors :)

    So gorgeous. Sometimes, less can be more, especially with these beautiful pieces you’ve picked! I just love that pale grey/blue paint color/am stalking it for my living room. Dig your vibes, lady.

MID-CENTURY MUSE

Full confession – I’m mildly obsessed with Lana Del Rey. Not just her music, but her total look seems like it comes from another era. So when she gets herself in that vintage-retro-goodness mode, I kind of just want to be her. Like here… I’m not one to lean towards a mid-century modern vibe (there’s […]

    I’m not a big fan of her music, but love her look totally suits her. I have always loved the midcentury look, but in small doses, I’m not big on one look done through an entire house, a little goes a long way in my books!

    There is something appealing about mid-century modern, maybe that there is so much available here in Dallas, but it just isn’t my choice, however, this pool house is amazing. Thanks, Patty

‘IN THE DETAILS’ DOES DALLAS

It’s been far too long since I did a little ‘In the Details‘ post, but the Dallas home of Joslyn Taylor – featured in the latest issue of Rue – was the perfect piece of inspiration for me to get back into this series! Coincidentally (ok, not really) I’m also heading to Dallas tomorrow for […]

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: PALM SPRINGS EDITION

palm springs mid-century modern michael haverland

I realize it’s probably 100 degrees in the desert right now (if not more) but thet’s not stopping me from dreaming about a Palm Springs getaway these days… pool lounging and furniture hunting? Yes please!  Now, I have to admit, I’m pretty over the mid-century modern look when it’s used in abundance. This comes from […]

    The sofa in the second shot is so perfectly styled! I’d love to know where everything is from. Palm Springs has so many great little shops for treasure hunting, it makes me want to hop on a plane right now! Thanks for posting!!! ~Sarah

ROOM OF THE WEEK 6.28

housetohome.glam modern

It’s funny how style is a constant evolution. A few years ago I would have looked at this room and said that it was perfectly me (minus a few accessories). And indeed, many of these pieces are ones I would still happily accept into my home today… The difference now is that I appreciate a […]

    I agree. After going through design school I realize that what I might love to design for others is not exactly the same as what I prefer for myself. I have always loved more traditional simple interiors for my own surroundings, and I think coziness and that homey feel are one of my top priorities. I love this room, but I am not sure if I could live in it and I feel that way about a lot of rooms I see.

    My decorating style has definitely evolved as well! And though I’m leaning towards more traditional these days, I do love everything about that room: grasscloth, chairs, that table!!! and the chandelier! All gorgeous and toned down.

    I’m slowly discovering the same. My style has gone from minimalist stark (back in design school) to modern – traditional – eclectic, if that’s even a proper description! It could be that I’m now older (and wiser – I want to feel comfortable in my own home), but I really appreciate traditional touches now mixed with clean lines.

      Very interesting…I would have NEVER thought to embrace “lime green” (ACCENT ONLY) – even IKAT – now….I really like it!!! See how powerful “design blogs” are…they’ve made me a convert. :) franki p.s. I LUV to “shake it up”…it changes all the time…………

    I think a few years ago, I would have gone bonkers for this room too. I still really adore the overall design of it, but I think my style has definitely evolved into a more masculine aesthetic over the last few years. It’s funny, I used to be very much influenced by what I’d see in magazines and I thought I knew my “style”, but after having studied retail & commercial design further now, I’ve almost completely ditched what I used to think was “me”. I’ve started to embrace a much more organic vs minimalist style… what a 180!

    I used to rely very much on magazines and blogs, find an image of a room I liked, and want EXACTLY that. I expected my home to constantly look glamorous, like it came straight from the pages of Elle Decor. Unfortunately, no one actually lives like that – those images took stylists and photographers and editors, which I very unfortunately do not have! Now, I still find inspiration from magazines and blogs, definitely, but I decorate with a better sense of self, infuse my own personality in my home, mix and match for a traditional / vintage / modern feel (“modage!”), and have managed to create a fresh, comfortable, and lived in home!

    I am with you. I want a chic but not too trendy home. Has to be comfortable and welcoming to our friends. Some unexpected details and have a lot of style. But my love of glam has been happily tempered and I think I am finally in a good place with my home!

    Great points here, Cassandra! A decade ago, I wanted new, new, new! Now, I love being surrounded by things with a past, objects that tell mine or my client’s story. I want liveable surfaces, and comfortable textiles. I find this room a little harsh. I’m longing for squishy chairs that make diners want to hang around and nurse that last bottle of Pinot dry! Ya feel me? ;)

    I’m always influenced by whats new in blogs and magazines. As a designer, I am drawn to every style – traditional, modern, transitional – and offer a range of “looks” for my clients. But at the end of the day, I have always stayed true my own personal style.

    I feel like since I’ve started blogging and reading blogs, my style has changed for the better. I am a lot more conscious of what I buy and how I can work it into my space and some things I never thought would work are some of my favorite things to look at now!
