Monday Musings: Hollywood Glamour

Mondays for me are all about gearing up for the week and getting new ideas and inspiration to go for. As I reflect upon my apartment decor I can remember one of my inspiration images on my moodboard.  I love Hollywood Glamour and keeping things neutral and very pretty. Every part of this apartment speaks to my romantic soul...

I love an office with a mirrored desk of course and a wood chair is the perfect way to offset the shine. 
Her soft colored walls, hints of pastels and warm lighting really make the place come together with a glowing romantic vibe. 
I also love the styling in this vignette. It's very Hollywood Regency incorporated with a hint of tradition. I absolutely love it. Those chairs really make me swoon. 
To top it off, the touches of black in the dining room make it very hotel like. That chinoiserie style screen also have my complete affections. Hello Hollywood!

CALIFORNIA COOL...

The laid back style of California is everything I am into this summer. When I spotted this adorable couple's home on apartment therapy I knew I had to share it with you guys. The style in this home is just beyond words. Take a cue from this super cute spread  to build a stylish home...


I love the pop of green in this kitchen. It really makes this look work.
How charming is this office space? The navy and white works so beautifully together. 
I am always a fan of a metallic ceiling, especially gold! 
How cute are they???

SILVERLAKE SWANK

It's been a while since I have seen an apartment with major style. Especially an apartment with ridiculously beautiful grasscloth wallpaper. This adorable Silver Lake condo is not only stylish, it was done pretty affordably too! Not surprising that a stylish LA gal would be the creative kitten behind this swanky space...

I love the hot pink/red velvet chair, it has such beautiful legs. 
We all know what I feel about pink in the kitchen...so cute! The artwork is beautiful too. 
And nothing tops off a beautiful outdoor space that a glamorous chandelier. So dreamy. 

MIXING IT UP...

Every once in a while, I come across an apartment that just blows me away. When clever couples have super chic mixing style I get very impressed. This adorable couple from Chicago has a very sweet space in the city and I just had to share it...

I love that a husband was cool with a floral carpet like this cabbage rose one and that gorgeous curved sofa with black piping absolutely rocked my world. White studded cocktail tables put together as a coffee table is so cute, too. 
Black walls and cabinetry, a little aztec rug and milk glass in white and green are elements of an uber cute kitchen apartment. I also love this cute little vignette...

Wallcolor Wednesday: A pretty little green room...

After a day of being out in the streets walking around I am just overjoyed that spring weather is finally arriving to the city. It has me dreaming of the most bright and vibrant colors on the walls. Especially the color GREEN...

The perfect touch of pretty femininity...
A touch of modern chic...
A touch of history...
A touch of traditional...
And a baby touch of masculine...
WHO WOULD NOT WANT THIS PYTHON BOOKCASE? Hello!

bliss in the kitch' ...let them eat cake!

I just have such a crush on this adorable + oh-so-girlie kitchen.
Her name is Caroline and she lives in D.C. and has a penchant for pink accessories.
I find her decor style very relatable and definitely a space worthy of showcasing.

Lovely dishware on display makes this kitchen delightful...so very anthropologie.

More photos from her hometour that I really love...
(girlfriend has some fantastic art, seating and a swoon worthy shoe collection!)


inspired spaces {a turquoise-a-licious patio}

It's so bright and sunny here today and I am completely inspired by this bloggers'
california patio featured on apartment therapy.
If you love turquoise as much as I do, you will love the way she incorporates the color on the floors and on the ceiling. Such a happy little place.
I would love to curl up with some coffee and a good book here.
What do you guys think????

beautiful Sundays in Sausilito...Apartment Therapy Home Tour

Hope you all are enjoying this beautiful Sunday. 
The weather in the summer is so lovely, I just love every minute of it.
Today, I am remembering the beautiful little apartment of Beth, from Apartment Therapy small, cool home contest. I fell in love with her cute little bungalow and they finally put up her home tour. 
It's such fun to look around at her quirky style.
enjoy! 

apartment therapy: a perfect NY apartment + Rita Konig NY english

I am absolutely smitten with this adorable NYC Hamilton Heights Bungalow.
Decorated by Nicole and only a teeny 650 sqft.
I love the gorgeous gray walls and extremely cozy vibe.
It's very Domino mag, no?

and speaking of domino mag,
Rita Konig (one of my personal idols) lives here...

and I am BEYOND in love with the place!

i'm crushing on...

These two freakishly cool spaces I found today while browsing around on 
the brown wallpaper mixed with brown + white walls looks divine...
throw in a few hints of yellow for a pop of color
and there you have...
perfection.
This dining set reminds me of something found in a crazy cool vintage store.
Bay windows and detailed ceilings are the perfect mix with the jeweled chandelier.
sprinkle in a small dragon + bicycle...walk up bliss.

art filled homes are my bliss...

I was originally going to make this an art + room post but as I found myself searching the entire
home tour over and over, I knew I had the share more.
Another amazing home tour from Apartment Therapy , Brad + Kendra from Boston (luuuv it)
created a glam sanctuary full of art. 
We all know how much I love my art!
Check out the huge ceilings + black moldings. 
Die.

client inspiration...paige

Thankfully, I have amazing friends who inspire me everyday and ask me for my help when decorating.
I get to do what I love to do...and they encourage it.
One of my best friend Paige, just got a new apartment with her sweetie, down in Venice.
It is literally blocks from the beach and it is so adorable.
So this post is sort of a baby inspiration for her new digs...this post is for your paigy! 

Emily of Frenchie & Flea (one of my favorite blogs) has an awesome home tour on apartment therapy.
It is so adorable, every little detail is perfection...and it's exactly what I am envisioning for 
Paige + Mike's new beach bungalow.





merry christmas eve...

Having finished stuffing my self silly, unwrapped all of my presents, watched a billion youtube videos and played enough board games, I find myself browsing the world wide web.
It's like a mini-world that doesn't close on Christmas and most of my favorite online stores are already having sales. I love this part of Christmas. 
In addition to shopping, I have been broadening my mind files of art filled interiors.
I am fascinated by art and how art is placed within one's home.
I found this image over at apartment therapy, and while searching for more, 
I couldn't keep myself away.
I think this art is so funky, and I really love how such different forms of art are placed on the wall and make a cool mix. I'm always looking for cool contemporary art.

And now just a few more images that look like art to me...
