Hotel Indulgences: The Ganesvoort NY

image

So I have been meaning to blog about The Gansevoort Hotel in New York ever since watching The Kardashians take NYC. I remember drooling over the ginormous houndstooth chairs and the mix of patterns, textures and the glamorous look of it all. It is the type of design I crave when staying in a new city. They have two locations in New York and here are my favorite rooms. This aerial view and that velvet sofa is my computer’s wallpaper now…

Remember this was the suite Kim K stayed in during the Humphries era while filming Kim & Kourt take New York…

Love all the steel and industrial looks of this sports bar…

If you are scared to add too much color, simply use it in one furniture piece or small decor items for a pop..

The magenta hued drapery really inspires me to add something heavy and regal and jeweled-toned for the cooler months in my own home…

This lobby counter is pretty bad ass. I do wonder if they are over the chevron floor that was all the rage a couple years ago. It’s a risky move taking something so trendy for a commercial space. Then again, it could have been designed before chevrons became so popular.

What a view! I can imagine sipping cocktails at night here…

The illuminated art backdrops is a great eye-catching design concept. You can get the look in your own home with bookshelves and other things as well…

I’ve been to New York a couple times (Manhattan specifically and you can read all about the Xmas trip here). Next time I go, I need to experience a rooftop bar…

Tuesday’s Tips: pedestal sink storage

image

Pedestal sinks are nice in small bathrooms because it frees up floor space and doesn’t have the bulk of a cabinet. However you lose needed storage so this post has a few ideas to help make the lack of surface space more functional. You can hang a glass floating shelf for daily needs…

You can squeeze a shelving unit in the space…

You can hide baskets or unsightly items behind a skirt…

Bathroom virtual design…

image

I know….another bathroom post for the week. My friend in Atlanta wanted a virtual design for her guest bathroom. She already purchased this vanity and a matching cabinet. After consulting with her and finding out the light fixture she purchased was in bronze,  I came up with these options to choose from. I wanted the rest of the fixture and hardware options to be in the same metal as the light. I gave her three potential color schemes to go with. I also advised her to remove the builder basic mirror and replace with a decorative mirror. You can find some sizeable mirrors at Marshalls, Tjmaxx and Homegoods for as low as $24. I also gave her some tile options. Did you know Home Depot has adhesive tile that has an easy installation and can be removed with a hair dryer? The subway tile and mosaic tile in the last design are adhesive. It’s great mess-free update for those who rent and can’t do anything permanent. To help aide in her decision I gave her sources, paint colors and some drawings to show her how to style it. Which design would you pick?

Bathrooms with black walls….

image

You know black is my favorite color and though I wouldn’t want the walls of a lone bathroom black, I wouldn’t mind having one if I had several bathrooms to design. There is something so dramatic about a powder room that’s moody and bold in dark walls or wallpaper. Whether paint or tile, you will see the boldness is in full bathrooms in this post.

Tuesday’s Tips: from bar cart to bathroom cart

image
If you are one of those people with a ton of products you use daily, you may want them in arms reach. Cluttering a surface without a tray is such an eyesore and maybe you have little ones that may accidently drop products styled on the toilet. A repurposed bar cart will comes in handy…

Talk about an element of surprise. Everything about this design is right up my alley from the wood grain, the mirrors, the disk shaped hardware, the lighting pendants, and the color black.

White and cream bathroom stone, slabs, and tile

image

I noticed my Pinterest has such beautiful bathroom tile inspiration. I love a sleek modern wall slab of marble or something. The look is very elegant and simplistic. I figured I would share the style of bathrooms I’m drawn to…

I like the suspended mirrors. That’s nice design look….

The wood blades, drawer fronts, and stool legs gives this bathroom a bit of warmth…
