I’m going to Arizona and obsessed with their architecture…

image

It will be my first time in Arizona and a girls trip and I’m excited to hang by a pool in hot temps with magazines galore, a cocktail, and beautiful picturesque scenery. We don’t have cacti or palm trees here in Milwaukee so know that I will take tons of instagram pictures. (It isn’t my first time seeing palms though).

What an incredibly designed contemporary courtyard area…

Uplights at night will really make a home and its landscaping stand out…

A playful yet sophisticated Vancouver penthouse condo…

image

Offsetting the white concrete floor is extreme attention to the fifth wall
made with embossed tin painted in black. It adds an interesting texture to a space often forgotten. Some rooms were inspired by Adam Levine‘s home and I can see the inspiration with the wood.

Tiny Tot Thursday: restoration hardware baby and child

image

The crown canopies make the rooms of Restoration Hardware‘s baby & child. Just the right amount of charm for baby royalties. The collection uses classic elements found in adult spaces like chandeliers and tufted upholstery and some industrial styled decor.

image

Not only are tufted cribs visually beautiful but the extra upholstery is sort of like baby proofing as it would soften the blow if a child falls against it.

image

I like the army styled teepee. Teepees are just so much fun. They literally bring out the kid in you.

image

image

image

Some items are quite pricey because it’s a luxury indulgence but the pieces of furniture are beautiful enough to pass down generations or continue to grow with the child. Some items have a historical aged appearance that are timeless and truly a refreshing classic take on children room designs.

Stiletto swap party idea…

image

What’s a girl to do when she has a shoe line and wants people to review the collection? She hosts a stiletto party. That sounds rather fun for us ol regular folks too. Simply put together lightly worn shoes that you no longer wear. Have your friends come along with shoes they have and have a stiletto swap party. Ideally pick people who have the same size shoes or allow your friends to bring a plus 1 so that there are more options….

Domaine Home has the spread of Sarah Jessica Parker’s collection and fun girly photos.

Above is Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr’s closet. Wouldn’t that be a beautiful display for a swap party? Open armoire doors and hang over door hooks to hold additional items. Style things in a way that encourages swappers to browse.

image

Saw this on the Glitter Guide and not only do I like the use of a regular old bookcase for shoes, you can easily use one if you already have one in a living room or rec room area (where house parties usually are). Simply temporarily take out what typically stays there and display the shoes for the party. Label the shelves with the appropiate size so guests can zero in where they need to be.

image

No bookcase? Use any shelving unit you can easily transport to the party area of the home.
image

While we’re on the topic of shoes, I saw this amazing idea on a Loyal Love where tension rods were used and spaced out in a wall niche. Very smart use of space and great way to store heels.

This bold ceiling design is just so awesome…

image

image

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.

Remember When….I created that last collage…

image

You can see that collage here. The next day I stumbled upon Bliss At Home which had a knock off DIY tutorial of the Worlds Away Anna bar cabinet and boy did she knock it out. 👊

image

I don’t know what I like best: the leopard lining or the teal hue. I know one thing, it inspires me to want to change my hardware on everything.

image
The rest of her home and the DIY projects is equally gorgeous.
