Maybe it’s because my birthday (virgo season) is just around the corner. (I hope it comes slow as I want the summer to feel longer than 3 months). It’s about that time for me to start planning my annual trip. Usually I go to Chicago but last year I celebrated in Atlanta. This year I want to go somewhere I’ve never been and I’m thinking out west. I’ve never been to Cali and although Palm Springs isn’t where I will be going, I keep dreaming of it ever since I posted on flamingos.
The palm trees, the sun, the pools, the laziness of the days is what I’m craving. I may not end up in California but for now, let’s pretend I will. Actually let’s pretend I had a vacay home there. I’d be on the fence on how I would decorate the outdoors whether I want the pool and sky colors sprinkled throughout in turquoise and green hues or if I want a chic classic like black and white stripes with hot pink splattered all around.
Which outdoor space do you like best? I like both a whole lot but….the classic modern one is really calling my name. Now if only I had unlimited funds and an actual vacay home…..
Love the way the photographer captured this. I also like the way Kelly filled each area of wall space with art. Sometimes we feel like we’re unable to hang art if it’s a weird wall space. This proves you can.
Dark and dramatic but seemingly comfortable….
The lighting is pretty funky…
Pretty outdoor setting…
This decorative gold mirror trumps a medicine cabinet any day.
I am just in awe of the materials she uses for surfaces and walls. Everything ia bold and in your face.
I like how the geometric arch is echoed in the sofa below…
Something Nate Berkus spoke of often on his show (man, I miss that show). I like the idea of buying the most beautifully made version an everyday item. This idea will surround you daily with pretty and inspiring things. Like … Continue reading →
One Kardashian family member was quoted saying “If something is merely beautiful as a piece of art, that’s one thing. But when you need to live in a space and have it function as your life does, that’s where good design happens.” I agree. I watch that family’s show and it’s spinoffs…..sue me. But part of the reason is the settings backdrop has always been fabulous. I like deep tones and lots of textures, elements of Hollywood glam with reflective finishes all the while keeping the space liveable. You don’t view their home as a place you can’t relax in and touch and it’s something I feel Jeff Andrews has designed quite well. It’s luxurious in the materials but still has a liveable comfortable aesthetic. I’d move in…..sans all the people.
I believe Kourtney Kardashian was interviewed here by Oprah…
It’s something we often forget but just because a pillow is intended for outdoor purposes doesn’t mean you can’t use it indoors. In Target over the weekend I saw such bright cushions and immediately thought about how they could help liven a space indoors for cheap. You see, dpending on the store, outdoor cushions are cheaper. In Target theirs start at $14 and this week they have a sale for $11.99.
