Playing with Flooring

10 Jun

Good morning! Flooring is such a major part of every space. There are countless options out there. Today I am showing you some fun options and classic options. Take a look.

Brick is a great choice for mudrooms and entryways, but brick in the kitchen or other rooms in the house can be unexpected. Brick is also great at hiding dirt in high traffic areas.

I love the look of these patterned tile floors. Picking a classic color combination in a fun pattern adds a pop of personality instantly.

Home Tour: Beachy Glam

9 Jun

Happy Monday! Today I have a fun beachy glam home tour for you. Even better it’s all done on a budget! This home belongs to blogger Laura Collins. To keep costs down, she filled the home with inexpensive artwork and revamped retro furniture from a variety of sources, including Craigslist and secondhand shops. The bright colors, metallic pieces, and rattan furniture look like they would have cost a fortune! I love the mix of old and new, it is something I use in my own space, it makes your home feel more authentic.

Home Tour: Cotton Candy Barn

2 Jun

Good morning! I recently ran across an image of a beautiful barn designed by Steven Gambrel and I haven’t been able to forget it. This former dairy barn in Virginia has been converted to a beautiful entertaining space. The entire space is elegant and comfortable with lots of natural materials. The best part is the bright pink and blue doors and balustrades. The pop of color is simply amazing. I would never have thought to use this bright color combo in this barn interior. Take a look!

Cabana Stripes

20 May

What says summer more than cabana stripes? I have always been a fan of incorporating stripes into interiors and exteriors. I love wide cabana stripes because they can transition from casual to elegant. Black and white stripes create a more sophisticated feel, while other colored stripes can be more casual and whimsical.

What do you think of cabana stripes? If you don’t want to commit to paint or wallpaper bring in striped accents such as area rugs or throw pillows. Cabana stripes are a classic pattern and will never go out of style.

San Francisco Home Tour

13 May

Good morning! Today I have a beautiful home to share with you. This San Francisco home located in the Pacific Heights neighborhood was built in 1867. This beautiful home belongs to interior designer Susan Greenleaf and her family. The mood throughout the house is relaxed and has touches of whimsy in the artwork. Susan mixes sophisticated pieces with quirky and cozy touches to create a lovely space. I think you will all love this home. Take a look.

Trimming in Black

21 Apr

Good morning! I hope you all had a great holiday weekend! For a long time now I have been obsessing over black molding. It is so bold and chic. The best way to frame a room is by painting the molding black. The contrast of black trim against white walls is so gorgeous! Check out these amazing spaces.

Good morning! I have a stunning home tour to share with you today! I was perusing Style At Home (as I often do) and came across a home I knew I needed to share with you. I love finding spaces that use unexpected design and this home does just that. Style At Home design editor Jessica Waks transforms this home into her forever home. Every space has a new bold element. The pops of color and pattern are so fun I am completely obsessed!

Pretty fabulous right? Which is your favorite space? I am torn between the entry (because I’m obsessed with the floor), the powder room (love everything), and the den. Also pretty in love with the bedroom. So I guess I really don’t have a favorite because I love it all! Here’s how you can get the eclectic glam look for yourself!

Touches of Leopard

20 Jan

Good morning! Sorry I was MIA Friday. I came down with an awful cold and couldn’t pull myself together to post. But, I’m feeling better and inspired! I will be the first to admit if you asked me if I liked leopard print a few years back I would have said no. Not a fan. Ask me now and I love it! (In small doses) Leopard print accents are timeless and can truly act as another neutral in a space. Leopard print adds personality and a pop of style. Look at these spaces that use leopard print as a beautiful accent.
