ROCK CHIC: Bohemian meets femininity

Chocolate Towers is the lavish London home of Sera Hersham Loftus, interior designer to rock music’s top celebrities. We have all seen her home before in magazines, but I am just crazy about all of the romance + glamour in the different areas of her home. Completely feminine, the coziness just calls me in. What fun it would be to take in an afternoon of tea with her and her delicious digs.
Feast your eyes on the fabulous vignettes...

The dressing room is almost like a mysterious gypsy caravan. so cool.

Home Tour: tv host + lifestyle blogger Karen Bertelsen

I am just crazy about bookcases. 
So you can imagine that when I stumbled upon this photo, I took a second look. As I dissected this photo, I couldn't take my eyes off that ridiculously cozy looking chair. Who wouldn't want to sit in that thing for hours? The cowhide rug + silver side table combo left me wanting more.

Style at Home did a full feature on Miss Karen (the art of doing stuff author)and her lovely home. She did it herself and it she did it in under 1 month! I am all about a girl who gets things done!
This woman has totally inspired me, I can spot out plenty of easy-to-achieve looks that I wan't to incorporate into my own home...hope she inspires you too!
I love the dining room! The wood and brick together with gold framed portrait art...gorgeous!
Don't even get me started on this living room. That mirror is my new best friend!

kelly wearstler, trina turk and LA design bloggers

Had a fabulous time at the Kelly Wearstler book signing yesterday.
It was held at the Trina Turk store in West Hollywood which was designed by Kelly back in 03 and let me tell you, it was adorable. While Kelly signed her books, Trina showcased her latest collections and they were to die for!

Peachy-pink delicious walls that feel as creamy as silk and the beautiful bubble light fixtures gave an effervescent feeling to the soiree. The place was buzzing and peachy champagne was making the rounds, it was such adelightful event.

Jami did a fabulous job taking pictures and capturing the feel and the beautiful little vignettes of her home accessories collection. I was swooning over it all.

Later we went off to meet up with some of our favorite Los Angeles design bloggers, Laura + Eileen and had a dish session all about blogging + design! We got the most adorable bracelets from ShopDesignSpark. I am totally in love with it and never taking it off!

Wanted to share all of the loveliness with you guys. Hope you all have a beautiful weekend!

a nursery to adore...Tori Spelling's bff's "the guncles"

People magazine did a spread on the fabulous + oh so chic nursery of baby Simone, the new addition to the "guncles" from Tori and Dean. (Man, I am missing that show) I absolutely love this nursery! The hot pink walls and cute owl theme is just adorable. Who doesn't love an entire wall painted in chalkboard paint? I would have loooooved that as a kid. They make such a cute little family, no?
The fab chair + ottoman shown above are from the fab ladies at SPI...check it out here!

NY Times Room Makeover...indian sanctuary by Vicente Wolf

Check out this spare room makeover of Harrice Miller, a fab costume jeweler in Manhattan.
Now she has the perfect place to entertain her rockstar clients.
Mastermind Vicente Wolf tricked it out with a $5,000 budget. Complete with hot pink walls, a purple ceiling, gold accents and uber luxurious fabrics. I think its adorable, especially for the kind of clients she entertains.

Rachel Zoe Project 'shutting it down' on Bravo tonight!

I am so glad the Rachel Zoe project is back. I love everything about the woman.
Especially her extremely chic LA home. 
Great location, big windows, lots of greenery, it does everything for me!
While it is not quite my style, its extremely lush + luxe.
A killer combination! (I love all of the Missoni around her home. sigh!}
And the art, are you kidding, some of the best photography around!
I die for it...

secret of domestic bliss #26 {a well organized closet}

Every girl knows the importance of having a well organized closet.
It's redundant to have to search for hours to find something to wear. I know we all run into that problem from time to time. That's why I am declaring this month of July to really stepping up my game and getting my closet completely organized.
Here are some essential organizational tools that every closet should have...
(one of my favorite actresses, Olivia Wilde, and her gorgeous dressing room. love!)
great lighting + wallpaper
ample space for shoes
matching hangers are an ultimate do!
a full length mirror is a must for trying on your duds...
i love a good vanity inside the femme
beautiful wallpaper and shelving for handbags go together so well
beautiful jewelry storage can be such a lovely sight to gaze at
a lush hot pink rug is oh so rockstar chic
just like in a kitchen, an island in a closet is a dream come true
and who doesn't love the ultimate dream closet of miss carrie bradshaw?

Old Hollywood Glamour {ava gardner}

I love absolutely everything about Old Hollywood Glamour.

Something about the style just captures me, I live in the heart of Hollywood and I truly appreciate the lo
ok of Hollywood interiors back in the golden years.
Ava Garder is one of my most favorite Hollywood starlets...

How gorgeous does she look in these photos?
I love the blue walls and framed prints in the backdrop...

The headboard looks so lush and the white sheets with monogrammed throw come together perfectly.

I can hardly get enough of the gorgeous red velvet chair she is adorning.

Below is her apartment in Madrid (her favorite city in Spain). 
Red walls are the epitome of glamorous + luxurious Spanish living.
Notice the extravagant and ornate furniture...I love the look.

and to give a nod to Marilyn...I am absolutely loving the colors going on here.
Wood + White + Blue = gorgeousness
So fun to take it back to the old school for a min. Hope you enjoyed it. 

a mediterranian mansion: Lenny Kravitz former Miami home tour

Who doesn't love a good Lenny Kravitz song...hello American Woman.
I am a huge fan, especially now that I have seen this gorgeous Miami home that he used to live in.
Visions of white and hints of nature surround this enormous Florida estate.
Nothing is chicer in Miami than the color white and fabrics swaying about.
The textures in the home just scream, "walk around barefoot" and "kick back and relax".
You can't beat that...It's perfection.
{All I need is my bathing suit and a sundress and I am SO there}

Hope you guys are enjoying your Memorial Day weekend!
