Designer Spotlight: Amy Meier Design

24 Oct

Good morning! Today I am introducing you to San Diego designer Amy Meier. Amy’s signature style respects every home’s individuality. Every finished design reflects the homeowner’s lifestyle and passion. Her work has been featured in many publications such as Better Homes & Gardens, HGTV magazine, and New England Home. I know you are going to love her designs as much as I do. They are really beautiful. Her use of old and new make her spaces interesting and her attention to detail is to be admired. Take a look!

Beautiful spaces right? All of Amy’s attention to detail really shines in her work. I am having a hard time choosing a favorite space because I really love them all, but the wood chevron floor in image 5 is really fun! Which is your favorite?

All Lacquered Up

25 Jun

Lacquered walls have been popular for quite some time. I happen to love the drama they add to any space and every time I see a lacquered space I have to take a moment to take it all in. Lacquered walls are great for small spaces because you can get away with using darker more dramatic colors. Do you love lacquered spaces too?

Art on Shelves

9 Apr

There is nothing like a well styled bookcase. Whether you style your books vertically, horizontally, stacked, by color, etc. You can break up all the vertical and horizontal lines by dressing up your bookcases with art. You can style your books with accessories and then hang your fave art pieces right there on the shelves! Take a look to see what I mean. I think you will all be convinced this is a great idea!

Great idea right? I love the collected feel the artwork adds to these bookcases. Would you ever add artwork to your bookcases or have you already?

The Home Study

27 Nov

When I think of a home study I think it should be cozy, warm, and sophisticated. The fabric choices are very important in spaces like these. Velvets and leather work perfectly. I found some great examples of how to create a perfect study.

via

This space is perfect for work and relaxation. The beautiful colors and fabrics really make this space what it is. I love this light fixture also!

via

The bold geometric area rug grounds this space and adds a bit of a modern touch. The accents on the table and walls make this space unique and full of character.

via

This cozy corner is so inviting. This leather chair is the perfect fabric choice for a masculine touch. I love the vintage pieces they really add something special to this corner.

via

These navy lacquer walls are amazing. Accented with the pop of green leather this is a perfect home study.

via

I am loving the mix of masculine and feminine elements in this study. This is the color combination that comes to mind when I think of a study. Beautiful and warm.

Black and Blue

31 Aug

Today I am talking about the once forbidden color combo of black and blue. This color combination is in the same category as black and brown. Why can’t we mix them? The combination of black and blue when done right can look fabulous! I have gathered some inspiring images to convince you (if you weren’t already).

via

There are so many tones of black and blue in this space. The blue lacquered wall is simply amazing. All the textures and finishes work in harmony.

via

This dark moody study uses the navy and black perfectly. And for those of you who don’t think black and brown belong together the brown drapes in this space may change your mind.

via

This shows how black and blue can work in perfect harmony. The pop of mint is such a great accent.

via

If you are still hesitant about this color combination this room may work for you. The mix of blues with the accent of black in the bed skirt and bolster are working fabulously.

via

I love that velvet blue tufted couch! The black accents create a bold statement.
