How frigging gorgeous is this. I mean…what! I have always been fond of the symmetrical showrooms and catalogue spaces. This is by far the best. So dramatic and dreamy.
I was first drawn to the architectural details of the Boston Flagship store. The windows and molding is breathtaking. I have blogged many times on arched windoes including this post on ways to dress them with curtains. The arches in this Moroccan post were everything but if I could have the ones from here in my living room, I’d be a happy camper.
This man cave is everything. The lighting is the focal point. See more awesome images from the store on my girl Beth’s blog over on My Chic My Way.
It was the brass hardware, antique lighting and marble surfaces that drew me to her kitchen as seen in this Indulge Daily post. I even first blogged about those beautiful door knockers below in the ways to beautify closet doors … Continue reading →
One thing about renting is not being allowed to swap out lighting. Usually landlords and rental companies put the most dreadful cookie cutter pendants they can find. Lighting can help transform a space like the bigger elements of the room. Here are some interiors with really cool light sources…
I love a dark deeply rich in hues room. Combined with ambient lighting, we have a really sexy space. The architecture of the space above is a mixture of rustic & modern. The sleek fireplace is sure to set any mood. The vaulted wooden ceiling and beams makes it grand but the deep earth tones keeps it warm and comfy. It’s really the ambient lighting that sets it off. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to appreciate the ceiling’s beauty. Lighting is always something you don’t want to skimp on as it will do wonders in transforming your space.
The purples and raspberry hues really pop against the gray. The design is a simplistic approach but it doesn’t compromise comfort. I could see myself lounging on the sofas on the cowhide rug in those fabulous jewel tones. I also like how they painted the trim around the entrance (seen in the mirror) and window seat. It’s a great way to add color to the walls in a darker tone if you don’t want to commit to a wall filled with it. I especially like the blocked out area of black for the floating shelves. Gives that area a little interest.
Another mustard and gray combo with curtains puddling to the ground. That always makes a room feel larger even it’s not. Especially when the rod is near the ceiling, regardless of where the window starts. It draws your eyes upward.
One time in Pier 1 (my fav retail chain decor store), I came across these ginormous spoons and forks that could be hung on the wall of one’s kitchen. So whimsy and fun. So when I came across two interiors with utensils for decor, I knew I had a new topic. First off, this small kitchen above is fabulous in every sense. The black chalkboard paint amongst the white is a classic color palette and the chandelier adds a bit of glam to the design. Surprisingly the black ceiling doesn’t make the space feel heavy despite the cramped galley kitchen style. This is due to the floor to ceiling cabinets being white. If there were floating shelves, the space would feel even more open…
