Something about this dark forest green wall color gets me. It's so calming and serene of a color, yet can be accessorized with any color to fit whatever decor style of your choosing. Emerald. Perfected.

I absolutely adore this little kitchen, the stripes remind me of my old apartment. So now I am thinking of where I want to put stripes in my new apartment. Maybe the kitchen, or perhaps the bathroom. I love the way Steven Sclaroff does stripes in this gorgeous home...

As I prepare for this holiday weekend and get ready for my Christmas plans I can't help but think about my family back in Texas and how much I am going to miss them this year. It's okay though, I have some very special plans in the city to keep me busy. But, I'll definitely be thinking about my grandmother and how much she loves the color blue, especially when it comes to interiors. So today my post is in honor of her...

I don't know why but right now I am obsessed with this room. The floral rug is incredible, pops of pink, purple and red all together. I also love the styling on the white glossy console. Oh, and of course this wall color.
I've done many posts on this fabulous wall color and I continuously get emails asking for my favorite shades. There are so many to choose from but so far, these few have worked swimmingly for me. Usually I lean towards gray walls but right now, teal is totally on trend and almost like a neutral. It's so good I can't even put it into words how good this color is. Here are a few I think you should try...

Painting in this city can be so daunting. With all of the moldings, curved ceilings and such it makes paint difficult to envision. I totally get it, but I have found that most of my friends get so afraid to paint because of these small little issues. I encourage you to take the leap and get some color on the wall. Now, if you are afraid of picking the wrong color or maybe you want a certain color but think it might be 'too much'. So, why not take a cue from fashion and only paint part of the wall a color...

Over the weekend I splurged on a few beauty products, my favorite indulgence aside from bedding, and I found myself drawn to peach flavors. So all weekend long I smelled like a peach and I'm big on smells and seasons so peach is the perfect compliment to the end of summer. Which had me thinking that I should incorporate more pretty peachiness into my home...

I just love the color combo black and white. However, rarely do I see glossy black walls and white sofas look so completely chic together. I love the simplicity and the fabrics used in this space. They are perfect with the other accessories in the space like the modern art and lighting. I usually love layers over simple and clean but this space trumps that thought...

This summer is getting hot hot hot. So, I am craving some cool colored walls. At the moment I am coveting dark teal walls for my apartment because it will add a chic and very cool mood to the space. How chic are these rooms with the dark jewel toned color? I think it just makes every other color in the rooms pop in such a beautiful way...

To me, when it comes to decor BLACK IS MY CRACK. I just love the way it looks in a delicious room! Black on the walls is the perfect palate to really make colors sing. The great thing is that when a room is dark, it can actually expand and seem bigger than it actually is. For NYC, this is almost essential. Have you ever seen those small bathrooms all in black... so chic!

This weekend I spent some time with my grandmother who I absolutely adore. We had a conversation about decorating and she shared with me that her most favorite color on the walls in pretty baby blue. I immediately agreed and gushed over my recent affections for the sweet pastel hue. I happen to think it works marvelously in the bedroom, because it's so serene and relaxing...

“Above all, design is not about theory—it doesn’t matter whether pink and green go together. What matters are objects. They’re what give soul to a house. My home is a sanctuary where I’m surrounded by things I like.” -- interior designer May Daouk...

After working with so many clients you truly realize how afraid they are of color. It's like they really dream of having a bold color on their walls but are afraid to make the commitment. I totally get it, I mean my apartment walls are greige, hello! However, now that spring is here I am ready to throw in some serious color. And it really got me thinking, why don't we try painting the ceiling a bold color. It's such a clever way to add a hue to your space without being overwhelming....

I am usually the first one to add some deep color on the walls, but today I am seriously loving the things you can do with cream walls. They really aren't as boring as you would think. I love this room here, its so very California cool and the deep + dark trimmings make cream walls look totally chic, not to mention that fabulous yellow couch.
Bright punchy colors in fabrics or even really fun patterns can completely divert your attention and make cream walls actually seem a little glam...read more!

I personally think that the color lavender is really underestimated. Most people associate it with a nursery or a really feminine room but I think that the color can actually be quite sophisticated when used in the right way. Yes, of course it is feminine but let us not forget that in our history the color purple was used to signify royalty. I love when it is used in the unexpected places and situations...it can be quite breathtaking...read more!
