Designs and dimensions in tile, doors and furniture

image

I saw AKDO’s tile on pinterest and loved the design. I can see this as backsplash for a stove with gold fixtures.  So pretty…

Then I saw this which is making some patio awfully fabulous. See more here

This door is amazing. Talk about an entrance…

The lines of this desk reminds me of the one Kelly Wearstler used here

This room has a lot of dimension too in the form of the many textures through out: wood paneled walls, woven headboard, quilted blanket, leather tufted bench. Textures gives interest in an earthy color palette or monochromatic design. Do you like dimension or prefer flush smooth surfaces?

I love a dark and moody designed room….

image

I love this bedroom. The different patterns and textures all within the same color scheme makes it a nice moody retreat from the day. It reminds me a bit of the room Kim Kardashian is staying in at her mom’s while her home is being renovated. I don’t have pics but if you watch the show you know what I’m talking about. It’s tone on tone black and charcoal gray and I love the drama of it all.

The table is kinda creepy but I like the rest…

This moody booth with the single crystal pendant is probably in a cocktail lounge somewhere. It allows intimacy without any distractions from what’s happening in the rest of the place. I think that’s why I like a dark space. It feels like a cacoon of sorts.

image

Just because you have a dark space doesn’t mean color is removed. Here you can see the emerald contrasts nicely with the blue walls…

Do you enjoy a moody room?

Cloud Hunter’s Feminine pretty luxury bedding made in the US

I love white bedding. It reminds me of being in a hotel. There is something soothing about comfy white comforters. I even like when white duvets are a little decorative. If you do, then you’ll love Cloud Hunter’s collection of luxury bedding made here in the United States. Yep, right in L.A. is where CH’s newest collection (which has reversible duvet covers, pillow shams, accent pillows and faux fur throws) are sewn with love using   highest quality laces, linens, velvets, and satins.  It’s ultra feminine especially for shabby chic lovers.

In a sea of lookalike home tours, these are refreshing…

image

I love lofts. Always have. I want one. With the same bones as the two tours below. In the first home, they have a dry cleaning rack for clothes in their closet, a wing from a plane and beautiful floors with a brick and concrete wall combination. It’s odd in some ways but the quirky elements are fun. It’s a great breath of fresh air to the typical “all white everything”that we’ve been seeing lately.
