Hope everyone had a marvelous Christmas holiday, I know I surely did. I spent a LOT of time in the kitchen making beautiful memories and I must say it was awesome. One thing I found was how much I enjoyed baking on a marble countertop. Gorgeous and ever so easy to clean, I will always be a huge supporter of marble in the kitchen. Or anywhere else for that matter...

So the other day I was walking into yet another apartment building on my quest for the perfect apartment in this city. It's very difficult in new york, you know. Anyway, I walked in an the marble on the walls and floors was just to die for. It really got me thinking how not too many people pay attention to the floors, its the most overlooked aspect of a building, let alone the home. Then of course I was checking out some kelly wearstler design and of course, she always nails it...

There is no secret that shower curtains are essential in the bathroom. But what if I told you that in order to make your bathroom really be luxurious and stylish, you could take that one step further and really outfit your bathroom with swag. Literally. I am such a fan of over the top drapery and fabric in the bathroom, it just warms things up a little bit more. It's all about the details, as my favorite look is fabric with a little sway and swag...

When I first moved into my apartment here in NYC I wanted to vomit at the yellow shower tile, but after some time I discovered that it was a perfect dash of color! Lately, normal grey and off white tiles are boring me. I am loving me some bright and colorful shower tile. It can really do great things for your bathroom.

This week I visited a friends home in the city and a few of the bathrooms were standard and modern however she wanted to add a bit of old world french glamour to it. We discussed several different options but I found that there are just a few key elements that can add the look in a big way...

Finally the rush of Monday things to do has set in and I am back in the swing of things. Right now I am working on finalizing the details of my clients bathroom. The size of the bathroom is pretty small, so I have a limited space to work with. What kills me are the ranges of beautiful tiles and fixtures out there are, they are just incredible. I want to incorporate everything!!! My favorite thing that I have seen lately are wonderfully tiled bathroom floors...read more!

Now that I have been putting the finishing touches on my own apartment, I have a pretty boring bathroom and I am dying to spice it up a little. I love character in a bathroom, but my bathroom fixtures are so modern that it is hard to add "personality". I need to stick with the modern hotel chic vibe.read more!

So everything about this bathroom right now is killing me softly. The wallpaper is black and white perfection, I am so into it. I love how not all walls are covered, super good idea for less drama. Oh, and the monograms always speak sweetly to my heart, I love them. Oh, how I am adoring delicious bathrooms right now...

Okay, so by now I am pretty sure you know how much of a fanatic I am about python right now. I mentioned that I am currently about to embark on wallpapering an entire bathroom with python, so exciting!!! Now I am looking for other places and uses for python wallpaper or even contact paper.
I have found some inspirational ideas that I am absolutely loving...

So, since being in NYC, I have totally forgotten that tons apartments in this city don't have bathtubs (like the one I am currently staying in) and its killing me. I am a huge bath girl, I relish in the art of bathing. Today, as I am on the search for my own apartment here in the city, my number one must have on the list is luxurious bath, I'm really hoping for a clawfoot one. I just think they are incredibly gorgeous and usually they will fill to the brim! Gotta love that.

Today, I am making the track down to Brooklyn (my first time) to do a little shopping with one of my most favorite clients. Our first mission...wallpaper. We are basically wallpapering her entire apartment, which is so exciting, especially for this decorista. I think we are going to convince her husband that a python wallpaper bathroom would be killer! yay! Anyway...today my mind is entirely focused and obsessing over wallpaper and I wanted to share a few I love...
I think my most favorite are neutral wallpapers and grey-ish wallpapers, ones with simple patterns. I especially love metallic wallpapers. The more natural looking, the more I love it. But never underestimate the power of color and dramatic wallpaper... its amazing too.

Something about each of these rooms has me weak in the knees. I'm constantly daydreaming about living in rooms like these. The saturation and mix of colorways are so beautiful. Each room has textures and fabrics that lend to sophisticated and elegant style. Not too much color, just the right touch of boldness.Very inspiring for my little ol decorator heart. The last room with the beautiful wallpaper, might just be my favorite. The pillows are perfect and that wood + gold art piece on the wall is absolutely genius.via

After falling for the Dita Von Teese shoot, I am feeling the feminine vibe. Nothing is more fun than luxuriating in the art of getting dolled up. So you must have a fabulous bathroom to make you feel glamorous. This bathroom styled by Eva Lindh is incredibly posh, don't you think?
Redesigning your home and want to
Get this look:
There are key essentials when redesigning your bathroom to look like this. First of all you need to re-grout with some gorgeous sheen tile. I love the gold trim on the shower enclosure, a beautiful one is essential after all. In the corner, you must add a fabulous shower tray to store all of your essential items, too. Notice also the gold bathroom tap, it just pops.

The surefire way to make a huge statement in the home is the guest bathroom. It's probably an afterthought when decorating your home, but trust me, everyone notices the powder room.
I adore wallpaper in the powder room. Really dramatic and bold wallpaper is best when its placed in small rooms, like these teeny washroom spaces.
