office space of the day...David Hicks meets Studio Ten25

As soon as I spotted this office with the David Hicks hexagon pattern inset on the armoire, I knew this Studio Ten 25 design was office space worthy. I use this pattern a lot in projects, it's such a classic and modern print. I also just love the idea of using it in other ways besides just the walls...

Elements of Eclectic Glamour

When people ask me to define my style, I always say "eclectic glamour". I think because I love so many looks and styles, its so hard for me to really define. The one thing I know is that I love glamorous things and I love the finer things. Perhaps thats why I love vintage + antiques so much, most of the time these things are made with such care and high quality. I rarely find an interior that really does eclectic quite like I like but Nicole Hanley's apartment featured in vogue did something I am completely into...

White I am not the biggest fan of yellow, I can't help but love the little touches of yellow throughout her space. It adds vibrancy and color to the mix. I've been seeing neon in acrylic so much lately and that adorable ashtray on her coffee table is probably my favorite thing in the space, aside from the glamorous kitten artwork. 
These black doors with yellow insets are oh so rad. Very "outside the box". Which brings out an eclectic edge. Her abounding art collection also nods to modern and the eclectic mix gives you that sophisticated feeling. To top off the look that golden obelisk paired with the marble eggs adds style, swagger and keeps it very glamorous!

So on my decorista radar...gray + yellow


So for some reason I just can't get enough gray in my life. I don't know exactly what it is about it but I have a huge infatuation with him. He's masculine, sharp, cutting edge, and gorgeous! His pretty girlfriend yellow, is just the perfect compliment. Lately, this color scheme is so on my radar. Mixes of grays and yellows are perfect for this season and probably never out of style. Love it.

Tablescape Tuesday: pretty pops of yellow

Nothing says spring like a bright and sunny pop of yellow in your tabletop decor. Come to think of it, nothing says spring like dining al fresco...my favorite. I'm heading back to LA this week to hit up west week (all sorts of fun design festivities happening) and all I can think about is an outdoor baby shower that I am going to attend. I'm on the decor committee, of course, and right now all signs are pointing me to a teeny pop of yellow.

interior designer crush: Sabrina Linn

I have a new design crush. Sabrina Linn, an interior designer based in Toronto, Canada, has captivated my eyes with her bright and beautiful designs. Her portfolio is full of goodness that is sure to make any decorista smile. She also has gorgeous collections of pillows available which are such fun to look at. 
How gorgeous is this sunny, full of style penthouse loft? I'm absolutely smitten with the pops of orange and yellow. Oh, and the tiger art piece too!

bliss in the kitch' ...black and yellow splendor

The minute I laid eyes on this photo by Laure Joliet, I was done.
It's just delicious. 
Hello, notice the yellow and white striped outdoor area, complete with an aqua rocker. 
I am forever a fan of cowhide rugs and Saarinen looking tables, of course. Swoon
The playfulness of these elements are absolute perfection.
The chairs are so incredibly genius with the dark walls and black + white cabinetry.
Not to mention the ever so funky chandelier.
loving it!

Wallcolor Wednesday...sunny shades of yellow

Never underestimate the power of a yellow colored room. It might seem a bit much at first thought but yellow is jam packed with happiness. I think yellow can be beautiful when used with discretion. 
Yellow is not for everyone but how grand does this gorgeous yellow entryway look in the first photo? I really think it works well here and with a dash of pink...its perfection. I also happen to adore this gorgeous and cheery living room via martha stewart. Very martha, very traditional, very palm beach...i dig it. 


Now if all yellow on the walls is a bit too much for you...try going with stripes. They work too.

Home Tour + Bliss in the kitch' : a pastel paradise

I am all for bold and beautiful colors in design. Conversely, there are times when my palate gets overloaded and I would relish the feeling of coming home to a muted color scheme like this beautiful home. I adore the pastel colors of this home, the bedroom is so relaxed and cozy. Sometimes no color, says so much more than bold and bright color, no?
