Tuesday’s Tips: one way to spice up a room

image

Stunning work by Spruce Interior Design over on Apartment Therapy. I like the symmetry by the fireplace. I also like the modern way of furnishing a conversation area. Let’s get outside of thinking about furniture sets and create more interesting spaces mixing styles and pieces. If that isn’t in the budget then think about incorporating different tables. Swap out side tables between rooms in your home to avoid everything being too matchy.

Beautiful stairwell. Head over to Apt Therapy to see more of the home.

Luxurious and grand…

Hello! I am doing a voice text blog post since I am still recovering from Wednesday’s hand surgery. I am supposed to keep my hand elevated so it’s a good thing I always have my phone in my hand. I came across this living room on Pinterest and it linked back to a page that I can’t translate. I’m not sure if all of the images are from the same home or hotel but they are all beautiful. I love when a really spacious room is filled with the right scaled furniture and artwork…

A home tour with lovely vignettes…

image

With color inspiration from the 70s and a marriage of design styles, this home tour encompasses a lot of things I look for when featuring on my blog. I like a home to have some character and architectural detail. Brany’s has just that in the molding designs on the doors, beautiful wood floors and exposed brick. I like a home to look personal as if every item was edited and bought or salvaged from a place with background, history and meaning. Brandy’s home has just that. It mixes new and old and balances nicely throughout the entire space. What I saw first was that wild bold wallpaper and a gold mirror then the open riser stair case with a neon light and I knew this would be a fun home tour. Every room was interesting and the spaces that felt a little empty will probably be filled with another conversation starter soon. It just looks fun, like everything she bought, was bought because she simply liked it. Not because she needed to finish a room in time for an online feature or not as if she needed to be like everyone else and buy the same print, same tables, same rugs. Brandy’s home looks like Brandy. One of her fav sites to score items from is Chairish which is also where she sells decor through. You can buy her style at Make & Model. It’s nice to see someone that doesn’t stick with a formula of what they think is “cool”.

Take a cue from this and use expensive or bold wallpaper in a very small width of space. You won’t break the bank but you will make an impact.

Two chairs similar in style (both armless) and the same color can work just as well as a pair. I love the barstools and lighting.

image

Decorating with busts and mannequins are my everything. I like how the vignette is asymmetrical but still balanced because the mannequin is around the same height as the lamp.

You can see the rest of the tour and all of the deets over on Apartment Therapy.

Remember when I blogged about putting chairs in odd corners?

image

I intially blogged about ways to make use of odd corners and featured the pic below. You can see that post here. Then I came across Coco & Kelley’s post showcasing the entire home. It’s dark and moody and the palette consists of just gray, white and black. The textures and layering allows the space to feel cozy and not become boring. It’s very masculine but fine for a woman too.

image

Then I saw the kitchen and realized I also blogged about that on my decorating with cutting boards post.

Lovely black gallery wall…

I love coming across home tours of rooms I’ve blogged about before. You can see all of the times it has happened in my Remember When archives.

This here is probably my fav 6 week challenge reveal of all time…

image

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….

You know I love vignette styling. Please go see the rest here. You can also see my love of mantles here and sputnik chandeliers.

Tiny Tot Thursday 3.27.14 a space a child can grow in

image

This playroom designed by Nina Farmer is ideal because the bones of the room can easily transition for a more grown up feel when the child becomes a teen or college student. Books can eventually replace toys in the built-ins.

I can’t take my eyes off of this room….

image

I made this my computer background. How gorgeous. The candles and sconces and uplights cast the most perfect glow for this party. I love how the pearls are draped. So simple but luxe. The drapery though…is so regal. I just can’t stop minimizes my screens to stare at this space.

Now those chandeliers are everything. I want a party like this!!!
