Modern Rustic Interiors and events…

image

I have a thing about rustic design but it has to have a lot of modern and contemporary elements mixed in.

image

The lighting in this reception is absolutely stunning & it gives an industrial look to the space. I also like the bails of hay stacked in the background…

image

This kitchen space has so much architectural details from the exposed beams to the wood plank ceiling, the arches and the steel windows. There are a lot of textures going on in this open floor plan. I really like the industrial bar stools. You can find similar ones at Target, West Elm, Restoration Hardware, Arhaus & High fashion home.

So much natural light floods this space from the steel windows. The wood beams and exposed brick add warmth to the space…

Such a gorgeous wedding backdrop. It looks is if vows are written and hung on fabric…

Sour apple plush restaurant seating…

image

I am not a fan of olive green but in a plush material like velvet or microfiber and combined with a luxe color palette of black, gold and white, the color can look so regal.

Love the details and lattice like design over the bar which is echoed in the pendant lighting. The walls are absolutely pretty. It looks like gold tinted mirrored molding.

John & Chrissy’s new home…

image
Last time John Legend’s home looked like this. Now it looks like this. Photographer William Waldron captured their New York apartment. First,I love them as a couple. Chrissy is so pretty, funny and down to earth and the homes glamorous yet relaxed aesthetic is exactly what I would expect of them. I really love the piano room but you will have to see that over on Architectural Digest. For me, a room looks expensive and grand when there are large pieces of artwork adorning the walls…

I prefer a lower bed. To me this is the definition of bedroom comfort….

Shark jaws, animal skulls, mineral rocks & fossil decor

image

A couple weeks ago I went to a coworker’s house party and one of their relatives collects small animal skulls, artifacts & minerals like geode. Ever since then I’ve been seeing them as decor at places like TJ Maxx and Ashley’s Furniture advertisments. This isn’t anything new but I think I may have to go back and get the mini dino head below.

image

I would spray paint it gold or stark white…

image

I think these little objects strike up interesting convos as well as create dimension for a vignette…

image

Love the agate drawer pulls and lamp…

Not exactly sure where Jessica bought her faux turtleshell but Nate Berkus used to sell some Target.

IO Metro sells a variety of animal skulls to pick from….

Tuesday’s Tips: Sleep Better By…

We all can benefit from having a good night’s sleep. Here are some tips you may not have thought of.

Wash Pillows to keep them germ free and fluffy and donate old worn out pillows to animal shelters…

Buy a good mattress or mattress pad…

Hang up black-out curtains to create a dark room where the light from the streets and sun doesn’t bother you…
image
Clean and tidy up before bed as the less clutter you see, the more relaxed you’ll feel…

image
image

Get clothes and lunches ready the night before work which will give you more time to sleep in the morning and less time to get ready. You’ll also benefit from not forgetting things and eliminate the stress of not having something to wear. Doing this can also keep you punctual.

The more sleep you get, the less time you spend awake which means you’ll eat less calories through out the day.

What a beautifully designed kitchen…

image

I said it before but oven range hoods are really taking over kitchen designs and can steal the show. This kitchen was designed by Matthew Quinn for the Kips Bay Showhouse last year. I love all of the materials from the counter to the backsplash, the range hood and lighting.

image

The built in cabinets look like decorative armoires and add a nice touch to the space…

image

The lighting pendants are fun and probably cast a nice design on the walls. You can see more of the kitchen and the neatly organized drawers here here.
