A TROPICAL BREAKFAST NOOK MAKEOVER + BRUNCH!

before-and-after-breakfast-nook-makeover

Ever since moving in with my boyfriend in February, I’ve been d-y-i-n-g to give the breakfast nook a makeover. The first thing to go was the paint. And then I got a little inspiration from my friends over at Palm Breeze to give things a tropical twist… To some, tropical might mean more color and […]

    Have you considered sanding the shine off the floor tiles–it really makes a difference in feel, when you have to work with what is in that space for now!

    It looks amazing Cassandra! I absolutely loved how you worked with the tiles to create a beachy, tropical feel. I recently completed a project that had that tile pre-existing, and I took a similar approach with a palm and bright blue to freshen it up!

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
