The Balmain & H&M collab can inspire decor too…

I am HERE for the new upcoming collaboration with H&M (my fav mall store) & Balmain. There are so much detailing and textures through out the line. When I looked at one of the dresses, I immediately thought about how the material would make great toss pillows. You know us designers always find sources of…

…that graphic ceiling and gold chandelier here and then that abstract black and white art/vignette styling here? Well I just discovered from Simplified Bee that those two rooms were part of the San Francisco Decorators Showcase. Here are some other rooms of that home that like. Every. Single. Thing in this bathroom is glamorous. This…
