I was going through old magazines when I came across Diane’s Paris home in Instyle mag. I love that quote about comfortable luxury. You want to enjoy the beauty of it all and not have a space that’s so museum-like, that you can’t touch anything or enjoy it.
It’s a stone Kelly wearstler uses often like in this glamorous bathroom deaign. It’s fluid. It moves. It’s gorgeous to me. Onyx is found near cold springs and is used as a gemstone in jewelry and as a decorative surfacing material. Many varieties of onyx include semi-translucent veining that may be backlit, creating a dramatic effect for desks. Onyx is best suited for interior walls, vertical surfaces, and vanity countertops. It’s a bold option but it delivers major visual impact. What do you think of the stone?
I planned on finding a nice white lacquered top sawhorse desk from Ikea yesterday when I go to Chicago to visit a friend for the day. My trip also doubled as work as I will had an eye out for aqua, mint, turquoise, coral & peach decor for an virtual design client. We hit up Z Gallerie as well. The good people over there replied to an instagram pic of mine to let me know they are in the Chicago area. Now if only they bring one to Milwaukee.
Madrid-based architect Ignacio García de Vinuesa and interior designer Elisa Rodríguez salvaged original architectural details and married them with modern contemporary art and furniture in this home. Although I am tired of sea urchin decor, I am not tired of this light fixture. I’ve seen it before and think it’s such a show stopper.
The wood on the cabinetry is nothing short of gorgeous. Wow. Combined with black counters and herringbone floors, it makes for a very up to date space with architectural details to add character.
Designing a space is a wonderful feeling but when a photographer gets to capture those images, that has to feel incredible. Their surrounded within beautiful spaces as they work. Sometimes photography isn’t appreciated as much as it should be. So I think I want to highlight ones who photograph interiors…
Here is the original image from the indulge daily post. I won’t be satisfied until I own a condo in the sky. It doesn’t have to be big just high up, near clouds, with a view. This is located on the 77th floor of the Trump tower. And if you have a little $12.5 million, it can be yours.
I find this hue a beautiful neutral that’s fresh and modern. It compliments any color and I think it will be something I won’t tire of. I can’t wait for the raspberry and plum tones of my bedroom decor to stand out against a charcoal gray backdrop. What do you think?
Have you used this in your home? If so, what colors does your gray contrast with?
