Celeb Homes: Kourtney Kardashian

image

If you been following me long enough, you know I been loved the homes of the Kardashians especially Khloe’s just from watching their show. In InStyle Mag Kourt shares her beautiful home that was also designed by Jeff Andrews who is one of my favorite designers. I love his portfolio of work and the mix and many uses of texture in a space. He manages to make homes and rooms glamorous but comfortable. It’s what I call a liveable aesthetic.

Kourtney has pieces that has been in her family for years to make it feel like a home filled with memories and sentimental things. Take this desk that was Kourtney’s father’s.

Even I want to play in Mason’s room. The surfboard light “medallions” are clever…

image
Kourtney, who loves interior design, decorated the baby room by herself…

I love the wallpaper in her space. It gives the room a modern warmth that a solid color wouldn’t do. I like the dresser for tv stand. Using credenzas and buffets are other stylish pieces of furniture to sit a tv on top or hang over…

Love retro reflective foil wallpaper….

image

I love wallpaper in small dosages. A reflective foil finish would be great in powder rooms and walk in closet/dressing rooms. I like it even more when it’s a modern design. Love this pink bamboo over silver foil wallpaper by Meg Braff Designs in this powder room. See more on Seekers Bazaar

The texture walls designed by Javaras Kennally Assoc installed the Maya Romanoff Gilded Cloth, metal leaf on raw canvas wallpaper above.

Lisa Rubenstein designed a pretty bath space…

Masculine and timeless. Love this look from The Best Wallpaper Place

image

I like subtle designs and this lizard pattern does it for me. Osborne and Little sells it. How do you feel about foiled walls?

A pink and navy bunny rabbit themed girl’s room…

image

I love the gallery wall of bunny profiles. Too adorable and easy to do for people like me who can draw. The navy offsets the pink so it isn’t overwhelmingly girly. The wallpaper is my favorite though.

image

Love the molding added to the closet armoires. See how hardware can change a closet door’s appearance here.

Snails and squirrels and other woodland animals in this cutesy rug leaves a soft area for a tot to play.

Purple & cheetah upholstery, zebra wallpaper in a nursery…

image

That rhymed and I wasn’t trying. Summer Thornton has a few designs that caught my eye while browsing Marcus Design. Usually I shy away from heavy wood but the purple and cheetah fabric makes it too good to resist. Taking a look that is traditional and pairing with modern up to date patterns and colors can prevent any older home from feeling old-timey or stuffy…

image

What I like about this room is the headboard, the layering of pillows, the bedding and the coral pops of color. Usually you see benches in front of beds but I like the chairs and small table as a nice spot to take in some coffee or catch the news…

image

Then there is this….a nicely designed nursery with furniture pieces that will grow with the child. You can easily put everything minus the crib in other areas of the home and it’ll work. Despite using such adult pieces, the room doesn’t lack any of the cutesy elements that baby rooms have. The popular zebra wallpaper can go along with any animal themed room. Using rustic fall hues and blue is more of a modern room palatte. Durable leather poufs and velvet upholstery is soft for the baby but still very stylish.

Interior designer’s home tour on Apartment Therapy

image

I haven’t posted on an Apt Therapy home tour in a while but I like a lot of the elements in the home of  Janel Holiday. First, the chairs from West Elm in the outdoor space adds punches of color to an otherwise neutral setting.

The wallpaper and chrome sphere is bold and fun….

image

I love the display of jewelry. I too like having them out in the open to admire. This is done so beautifully by layering heights and adding personal touches like photos and flowers. See more bauble storage ideas here.

image

I also like the glitzy flush mount light and tailored window shades. Similar Moroccan trellis rugs can be found here.

image

Containing daily products on trays eliminates the clutter factor. Using toilet top styling helps add some useful surface space. See more of the home here.

The prettiness that stormed instagram last night

image

Everybody seemed like they went to the newest Kate Spade store and instagram went nuts. I was in awe at the happy colors, pillows, window displays and bows. Here are some that caught my eye.

Home tour with original moldings and modern furniture & art

image

                                              
Madrid-based architect Ignacio García de Vinuesa and interior designer Elisa Rodríguez salvaged original architectural details and married them with modern contemporary art and furniture in this home. Although I am tired of sea urchin decor, I am not tired of this light fixture. I’ve seen it before and think it’s such a show stopper.

image

The wood on the cabinetry is nothing short of gorgeous. Wow. Combined with black counters and herringbone floors, it makes for a very up to date space with architectural details to add character.
