I am not usually one for a lot of white in New York City. Mostly because I think that it can be a little boring and color adds so much to smaller spaces. However, this gorgeously large loft has changed my mind. The windows in this space are beyond amazing and the light just illuminates each piece of furniture making it that much more dreamy and magical...

Okay everybody. I sincerely apologize for not posting yesterday. Things are getting to busy around here I can barely keep up. Yesterday I had an amazing shoot at clients house, those days are the most fun part of my job I swear. One thing I did realize, I am crushing hard on wooden furnishings. Especially when they are accented with white. Nothing is better than a wooden and white dresser...

As I start planning my move, my eyes are already shopping for new furnishings. What I am really into lately is wood in the bedroom. I think I may have been spending too much time by the beach, and lovely earthy rooms. I'd love to see how a beautiful wooden bed looked in a sea of more modern pieces, I just love a good mix. This four poster dark wood bed looks so regal against this brick wall. Brick is so common in NYC apartments, so this could be something I could work with...

Over the holiday I got to catch up with a few of my favorite blogs and found a new love for warm metallics in the kitchen. I love the idea of mixing, rose gold, gold and brushed silver fixtures. I also love a good stainless steel countertop and appliances. My client and I will be playing all week trying to come up with the perfect combination...read more!

So in love with earthy tabletop decor...

As my LA trip begins to come to an end, I feel ready to get back to the bright lights of my big city. However, I already feel myself looking for my next getaway (the heat of nyc is pretty major). So, I am beginning to ponder the possibilities of a weekend in Montauk, NY...for those of you who don't know, think super duper east Hampton.
I have always been completely fond of this amazing Montauk spread designed by Roman & Williams. I am obsessed with the woodsy, earthy, rustic-ness of the place. The modern lighting and industrial pieces keep it very hip and cool all while still maintaining that cabin log vibe. Agh. I just love it and could definitely use a weekend relaxing on that comfy looking sofa and making/enjoying dinner in that amazing kitchen merged dining room.
Absolutely LOVE it.

How charming is this kitchen? Just the sight of the wood and exposed unfinished-ness of it gets me going. All day long I have been fixated on scandinavian style kitchens for inspiration on an upcoming project. Unfinished plank wood flooring is my new afternoon obsession...

I love all styles of decor, its part of being a decorista to the core. Not every style looks good though and mid century modern is one of those that can go all wrong. I particularly love this home and how they rocked the look. Lots of white really keeps it fresh and piles of colorful cushions gives a little extra kick. The best part, really good artwork and gorgeous woods, you can't have old ratty wood for this look. It will kill it and be far too retro. Take a style cue from this fabulous pad. Oh and p.s. how GORGEOUS is that light fixture? So so good!

Nobody loves a big and beautiful kitchen more than me! Yesterday I had an amazing styling gig at a beautiful loft studio in midtown. The kitchen in this place was incredible and wood all over. I fell instantly for its charm. These wood kitchens are my absolute favorite right now...inspiring, charming and oh so chic.

I love daydreaming of decor inspiration. Last week I was so into the look of pink and red for the romantic holiday season but today I am inspired by black and white as usual, however I am loving the addition of light woods. It adds just a hint of rustic and earthy to an otherwise stark combo.
I love it for this kitchen or a fabulous office space, and this bedroom is wonderful with this look as well.

Can we just talk for a second about the latest project done by one of my idols...
Gawd, I love her. She has done such a brilliant job with all of the Viceroy hotels and this new one, the Viceory Anguilla is out of the world and makes me want to get there immediately. Thank goodness for the world wide web so I can just delight myself in these amazing photographs. I am loving the shift here from hard elements to more woods and earthy elements in her designs. Still as graphically and architecturally dramatic but sans the crazy bold colors. As always, I love her artwork choices, she gets it right in that direction every single time as far as I am concerned. Its very relaxing and at the same time enchanting.
I could imagine that the minute you walk out to this bar it takes your breath away.
Maybe I'd stop by the boutique and shop for a moment after I hit up the spa...
then grab a bite to eat at the restaurant, Coba and then off to the rooms...
So...what do we think???

Okay, so New York city is absolutely blowing me away. I have been buzzing around this city like crazy. I am most fascinated by the beautiful art galleries... everywhere! This photo totally inspired my day yesterday of hunting this city for the best artwork finds for clients this week. All the artwork in the city is intoxicating!

Roman + Williams just really know how to pull this look together don't they?
While the overall look may be a tad too much industrial to me, there are bits and pieces of the style that I can pull from. It's just such inspirational work, how can you not admire?missmoss

Something about this kitchen stopped me in my tracks and made me look twice. I don't know if its the gorgeous toile-esque teal wallpaper, which I absolutely adore or if its the starkness in the white countertop against the dark wood cabinetry. It's not something you see everyday but looks fabulous well put together. The kitchen is not usually the place where people get creative but I just love it when they do. This gorgeous kitchen is no exception and I am just dying to bake something delicious in that beautiful oven.read more!
