I mean…listen…this is so incredibly stunning. My fav takeaways: all of it the black walls and molding which gives an element of history and character, the faux white fireplace mantle with ornate details and the warmth by tall candles, the canopy bed without the drapery, the mantle layering, the luxe bedding and the window treatments & the black, gold and white color palette is all so beautiful, timeless and regal. Can you believe it was all done in 6 weeks? If you’re a follower of many popular blogs you will know today is the room reveals that designers were challenged with. It’s been fun reading and following everyone’s weekly progress and although this is the first one I saw, I am convinced it will be my fav. Job well done The Design Daredevil. Job well done. Below are some other fav images but you really have to check the site out for way more pics and all of the details.
A lot goes into dressing the windows and this mix of panels with patterned roman shades are beautiful. The shades allow both privacy and light….
I’m baaack. I needed that week off from blogging. Anwyay I like to browse airbnb.com and look at homes you can rent and I’m always amazed at the design styles of people. Personally, if I were using a room or a home as a rental, I would keep it as neutral as possible and try to take cues from hotels. Maybe it’s the designer in me but I’ve come across way too many homes with dark busy bedding which would make me think of dirt. I even prefer hotels that at least have all white sheets. Dark and busy patterns is a way to hide dirt and spots. I think it doesn’t mean you have to be boring just stick with lighter shades and light patterns or maybe add some funky pillows to the mix. I simply think the less taste specific, the better in guest or rental rooms.
This time I wanted to create a room that would be fit for winter and cold seasons but not lack glam. Mixed metals always brings it. A nice compliment of bronze and golds with silver and mirrors….exotic details like (faux) snakeskin and furs and a nod to the great outdoors with an abstract painting of a tree that is echoed with a tree with metallic branches. The floor vase looks like chopped wood and the geode is a nice way to incorporate a little bit of nature without feeling cabinesque. Price points range from1st Dibs, $100 swag chandeliers from Lamps Plus, Target, bedding from Zara Home, decor from Z Gallerie, Layla Grayce & Ikea.

I love my cat to death and though this is an odd topic, I really want to know thoughts because I am beyond sick of using lent rollers every morning. It’s one thing to swipe my leather couch but on the bed? Much harder and tedious.
The only way I thought I could get out of it is by placing a nice faux fur on top of my bed. It would be hers so I wouldn’t have to lent roll it down daily. But the thought of that kinda turns me off. I even put her floor pillow at the foot of the bed and sometimes she does stay on it but other times she’s sleeping anywhere like she owns it. Help!
