Get the look for less on Khloe’s home…

image
When I posted a few favorite rooms from Khloe and Kourtney’s homes yesterday, I immediately thought of some of my favorite stores (Pier 1 and World Market) and how they have merchandise full of global and cultural furniture and décor. You can create a similar look with exotic finds by shopping the links below. I sourced other affordable items from AtHome, ZGallerie, High Fashion Home, Lamps Plus, Rugs USA, & Kirklands as well. Purchase vases with metallic sheens, mother-of-pearl and mosaic details. This will add some oomph to a white room…

Create a neutral color scheme by making it interesting with different textures like faux furs, tweed, velvet, plush microfibers in the pillows and throws…

Use patterns like ikat in fabric choices and rugs. Also incorporate high piled shag rugs for a luxe feel…

Kourtney & Khloe Kardashian’s homes in Architectural Digest…

image

I always say Khloe is my favorite and her new home shows some of the reasons why. I’ve blogged about her gym closet recently here. However this new home of hers has some rooms I don’t ever get a glimpse of on KUWTK. I love Moroccan architecture with the ornate details and arches galore and designer to the stars, Martyn Lawrence Bullard gave her home a contemporary spin on that…

image

It’s more airy and neutral versus being rich in jeweled toned colors but the Turkish, Moroccan and Middle Eastern influences are there in the mirrors, lanterns, and side tables. The room I love the most is this tented living room that feels like a lounge area of an over the top wedding reception. I love that look because it’s definitely dramatic but airy and light. I created a GET THE LOOK that I will post tomorrow on achieving the same style for a budget with some of my favorite stores.

image

Martyn included a lot of his collaborations like some fabric selections. He is very known for eclectic and bold room designs with a lot of pattern. He used his Schumacher wallpaper that covered the 5th wall of Khloe’s family room, creating more visual interest to play along with the ceiling beams. I love the rug and how it ties in the cream and white palate. Speaking of, using cream and off whites create more of a cozy feeling than the contrast of bright whites and black. I find this color combination more attainable to live with than bright whites, especially for a sofa.

Love the outdoor lounge space…

image

This is Kourtney’s living room which is vast different from her colorful bold last home. It’s modern but comfortable for the kids…

image

I am actually looking to create this same look behind my bedroom nightstand and side table. Placing mirrors behind lamps helps to bounce light around so a room can feel brighter…

You can see the rest of their home over on Architectural Digest or in store by picking up their Celeb Home Edition.

Ahhh this Moroccan influenced ocean view vacay home…

image

…Is quite amazing. There is a tower and rooftop area to enjoy a firepit and panoramic views, several open air concept areas and patios to enjoy the weather. I really like the arched details through out the home. It’s yours to rent for $1,300 a night.

My DIY art idea using a pillowcase

image
.
Over the weekend I finally decided to put to use some picture frames I bought at JoAnn Fabric. I knew I wanted to take up some wall space in my bedroom and since it has a slight Moroccan influence, I figured I could use a beaded pillowcase I bought from Summerfest as art. Below is the simple tutorial…

image

First I cut the fabric slightly larger than needed so that I could tape the excess on the back of the mat….

Monday Morning Inspiration 3.24.14 if you let people break your spirit…

I had a completely different route I was going to take for today’s quotes until Mr. Monday Nights (actor/model Harold House Moore from vh1’s Single Ladies) posted this on his instagram this morning. It needed to be reposted. Hope this and the latter quotes gives you the needed motivation to continue your dreams.

I incorporated some pretty curb appeal with the added thought of, when one door closes…..another will open.

Hotel Indulgences: The Korakia Pensione in the Palm Springs Desert

image

The Korakia Pensione is a Mediterranean-style resort and spa located next to mountains in the Palm Springs desert. I like the Moroccan architectural details and decor found through out the space.

image

The black and white striped lounge chairs are exactly what I would want for my so cal outdoor space.

MMMMMmmmm yummy. Lately I’ve been cutting fruit up at night, storing in containers and taking to work to eat alongside my daily instant oatmeal. Fruit really does make a regular breakfast feel much more special.

This is so picturesque. See more on 100 Layer Cake.
