Love it when I come across something different in design…

image

Too much white white white in rooms for my taste. I love a bold color scheme or at least a bold lively area of a home. This above I love! This vignette is so inspiring. It makes me want to take a wall with the shortest width and paint something like this or at least paint it on a very large scale canvas. The table, the extreme modern neon lamp, the accessories, and the mirror are all so funky and fun…

image

Love the floor, the art and the colors of the walls in here. Would I want it for a daily basis? No. However this would be fun to do in a guest room…

image

So many takeaways that I like in this space. The materials in the room from the flooring to the brass gold stools is all very complimentary…

Bold bathroom tile & wallpaper designs…

image

Soon I’ll be moving to my condo I’m buying and though it is move in ready, I can’t wait to be able to give my personal touch to things. One way you can do that is the bathroom. There isn’t a lot of wall or floor space usually so wallpapering a powder room or laying higher end flooring shouldn’t be too costly because you have a small area to work with.

image

It also may fit your budget if you splurge on marble for the bathroom sink vanity versus in a kitchen for countertops. You can sometimes find affordable slabs of stone that can get cut and sized to fit your needs in hardware stores or tile shops. A lot going on with patterns in the above bathrooms but it all works because it’s in the same color scheme…

I love how this bathroom has two mirrors on opposite ends giving it the illusion of a larger area….

Vertical stripes will make the ceiling of a bathroom feel higher…

image

The dentil molding in this bathroom is everything! I plan to add some sparkle to my walls and ceiling with chandeliers. Even a flush mount fixture will be enough to add some ambience to a bathroom or hall…

Changing hardware, lighting and decorative mirrors can add the oomph you need to tranform a bathroom into a fabulous space…

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.

A little bit of casual glamour…

image

I came across this right after I published my color schemes:coral peach black & gray post. Don’t you hate that? Well I like this space because it’s lived in. As much as I love staging, I hate to see home tours so perfect with all elements of the homeowner’s interest removed, that it feels like a front. You can have a lived in look and still manage to be chic, classic, & fabulous. This area has a casual glam feel. Comfortable looking but luxurious qualities in the color palette, materials and textiles. Speaking of, I always love how black and gray brings the girly hues down a notch. Nothing about this space feels kiddish or tween. Love it.
