Light and airy with layers of texture and pops of black or blush. That’s the thread that runs through my recently pinned inspirations.
Love how these black cone pendants stand out and compliment the black door frame in this mostly all white kitchen by House of Jade.

This room gets tons of light. I especially love how the the large print above the fireplace ads a bit of a tropical beach vibe. Image Via

Can’t go wrong with linen bedding. I love the subtle blush color on this one from Sarah Swanson.

These modern leather chairs pair nicely with the texture of the rattan end chairs in this dining room by House of Jade.
This floor in a bathroom by Studio McGee is just the coolest!
More from Studio McGee. Another great white kitchen. I love how those pendants and stools add a little warmth to the bright white of the cabinets and counters.
And last, but not least another room from Studio McGee. They always stop me in my tracks. I love everything about this office from the dark charcoal bookcases and wainscoting to the art and that brass chandelier… is the same one I have in my dining room so no wonder I love it!
Hope you’re having a great week!
I simply can’t believe we are diving head first into March already. Not that I’m complaining or anything. The weather in these parts has been beautiful and signs of spring are everywhere. But, February went by in a blink and I’ve hardly had the time to blog so here’s a round up of what I’ve been up to: Day dreaming and plotting plans for our master bath remodel, working with an awesome new client on design of their living room and entry and a quick trip to New York City for my day job where I got to stay in an amazing hotel (pics below).
Master Bath Planning – Here are the finishes I’m playing around with for our master bath: weathered oak, marble, mixed metals (brass and chrome) and of course a dreamy free-standing tub. I’m on the fence about going with a marble tile floor in a hex pattern or a beautiful cement tile.

Speaking of beautiful bathrooms, I was fortunate enough to stay in a fabulous New York City hotel last week that among other things, is home to some of the most fabulous bathrooms — The Greenwich Hotel. I fell head over heels in love with it and I think I may be ruined for life. The furnishings were warm, worldly and luxurious. No two rooms are exactly alike and the bathrooms… filled with brass, marble and gorgeous tiles. Be still my heart.
And finally, I’m excited to be making some progress for a local client’s living room and entry. Here’s a progress shot below. Down came the dark wood paneling and up goes new dry wall. What’s amazing is, the husband is doing just about all the work himself on weekends and evenings…On the entire house! Impressive. Yes, this makes it a little slow going, but it will be worth the wait.
My clients wanted a warm, casual and inviting space. As you can see from the photo above, they’ve got great beamed ceilings and a dramatic rock fire place. This is their formal living room and they want it to be a place for the grown ups to relax by the fire, read and entertain. Here’s a look at their inspiration board.
I’ll share progress pictures one of these days, but for now, bring on spring!
Happy Sunday everyone. I don’t know about you, but in our house, Sundays are made for lounging in bed with coffee and iPad in hand. (For reading design blogs of course!) Speaking of lounging in bed, I’m excited to share my master bedroom with you today. I’ve been slowly updating it over the past few months and waiting for the last piece of furniture to arrive and it’s ready for a look.
But first, here are some beautiful bedrooms that got me inspired.
I wanted serene colors with layers of white, cream and blue. I lean towards classic lines, which lead me to the Chesterfield headboard. I love the tufting and the fact that it reads both masculine and feminine. I also wanted some of that coastal, casual California feel, which is where the the scalloped capiz light fixture and vintage pillows came in. They add texture, character and dimension. And finally, I just had to incorporate some great pieces art, some of which I’ve found on Etsy and some that I’ve collected over the years.

And Voila!Touch up paint still needed on the ceiling where we replaced the light fixture.
I hear there’s some kind of football game on today that everyone’s watching. I guess I better get out of bed and out to the store for snacks and drinks here pretty soon. Enjoy!
Step inside this Napa home designed by Kara Mann featuring layers of white and cream, soft linens and hints of black. This time of year when the skies are dark and gray, I find this color palette warm and inviting, not to mention it’s a total classic combination that gets me every time.
The surrounding gardens and landscape are stunning.
