Just a few glam seating nooks…
How I long to have an exposed brick wall…
A loft with black steel windowsills….
I like this sofa for you can sit in two directions and carry conversations with people on opposite sides of the room. It’s a great piece for one who entertains….
The other day I drove passed an apartment complex and one tenant had several chandeliers hanging from their patio. I thought it was the coolest thing to personalize an outdoor space like that. When you decorate your patios as an extention of a living space, you’re bound to have a comfortable area to hang out. It’s especially important when you live in smaller units. You want to make the best out of that additional patio/balcony square footage. Adding lighting just allows you to utilize the space for a longer time.
I created a bathroom in a simple white and gray palette with silver and mercury glass accents. I opted for a decorative mirror versus a medicine cabinet. It’s one of the easiest way to update bathroom and something I blogged about here. I wanted shine and a hint of sparkle with classic designs like the floor mat which looks like marble. A pedestal vanity with space to hold some pretty decorative perfume bottles was a must. I can’t stand a pedestal sink that barely has room for anything other than soap. To continue with the feminine vibe I went for a beautiful lace shower curtain. The marble modern clock echos the mat and marble sink. I really like this space. You can find the items I selected for the collage here.
I love white bedding. It reminds me of being in a hotel. There is something soothing about comfy white comforters. I even like when white duvets are a little decorative. If you do, then you’ll love Cloud Hunter’s collection of luxury bedding made here in the United States. Yep, right in L.A. is where CH’s newest collection (which has reversible duvet covers, pillow shams, accent pillows and faux fur throws) are sewn with love using highest quality laces, linens, velvets, and satins. It’s ultra feminine especially for shabby chic lovers.
Their lookbook makes me want to stay in bed on this lazy Sunday and drink tea…and I don’t even drink tea.

This living room is pretty. It looks like a nice place to take a moment for self before starting the day. A moment to perk up with a cup of coffee or tea. A moment to appreciate the light and sun that floods in between those romantic drapes. A moment of still and calm in a comfortable yet glamorous setting. That’s what this room looks like to me. One without a tv or any other entertainment distractions. A place to clear the mind and be still in one’s own thoughts. A place to meditate and pray for a day filled with fulfillment and producitivity. That’s what this room looks like to me.
