Restoration Hardware has some of the most industrial inspiring spaces…

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.

Miami home tour with a modern sky blue twist

This is pretty much what I think of when I think of Miami penthouses in the sky. The monochromatic color of water with lacquered furnishings and modern lines is quite beautiful.

This is what I thought all furniture would look like after year 2000. Growing up, I thought by now we’d all dress futuristic in silver like TLC, have cars that fly and just very curvy and odd shaped furniture. Don’t judge me. But this would have fit my vision. I like the metallic wallpaper throughout and what was done with the column as well.

The curves and nailheads of this chair and that headboard is fabulous. Yes the details of decor and accessories does make a space but just as important is the big pieces of furniture. I adore an interior with a chair or sofa that captures your eye. It’s kind of like a statement piece of jewelry. Here are some pins from my Decor & Furniture board on pinterest and what pieces I liked.

Tuesday’s Tips: The Best Fabric for Kids and Pets

image

Have you ever fallen in love with a sofa or couch but got worried that it will be destroyed by your kids or pets? Kids and pets are a great factor to consider when choosing the fabric for your sofa and other household furniture and fittings. Imagine what would happen to your sofa if you had your kids and pets playing on it. Your kids will spill food on the couch as well as step on it with dirty feet. The pets on the other hand will destroy your couch in a number of ways, among them shedding their hair on the couch’s fabric. Pets are known for their shedding. If you allow pets on your couch, you will soon find a layer of fur on your cushions. This should however not cramp your style. You can alleviate this problem by simply getting kid and pet friendly fabric for your sofa.

Ultra suede is considered by many as the best kid & pet friendly fabric. Other fabrics considered good for kids and pets are microfibers and leather. Man-made fibers such as olefin and polyesters, with a tight weave works well too because they are washable. Such fibers can be popped into washing machine whenever needed.
