Oh Kelly Wearstler….

I mean……..I still would love to play in the library Kelly Wearstler has for her design firm. So many materials to select to create a space filled with conversation pieces. How fab is this butler’s pantry? Such a small area but high on design. There is always a lot to take in and movement the eyes will…

Monday Motivation 10.17.2016

The beautiful home featured from this post is decorated by Kristin of Bliss At Home. I’ve been following her blog for quite some time and she definitely has mastered the art of blending collections and displaying them artfully. If you head to her site, check out some of her home tours and how pretty she styled…

Contemporary portfolio with a lot of textures

Came across a beautiful portfolio that made it difficult narrowing down the ones I wanted to feature here. You can see the details and rest of their work here and you may have noticed some in Elle Decor. I like when a designer uses standout materials and finishes. Take a look at the walls, lighting…

3 more home designs from Greg Natale…

What stuck out to me about this house is the lines. The lines of the furniture, the lines in the geometric patterns, the lines in the wallpaper. There are tons of shapes to keep your eyes moving and it’s definitely a conversation starter. The coffee table’s gunmetal colored tubed base echos in the wallpaper in…

Idol Hotel Paris…

I came across this fun hotel located in Paris and was inspired by the wallpaper, molding, and ombre walls. Whenever I travel I like to stay in spaces designed entirely different than my own home. That’s part of the fun when traveling.

Kourtney & Khloe Kardashian’s homes in Architectural Digest…

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…

So many details…

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I hope this week makes up for it. Starting off with some gorgeous Chicago home tours that offer grand formal rooms, beautiful construction and details to architecture. The rooms have a lot of character in the moldings and pillars to the ceiling designs. Some have weathered walls, gorgeous…

My Review of Hotel Monaco in Chicago

For my birthday 3 weeks ago, we stayed overnight at Hotel Monaco in Chicago which is a Kimpton boutique Hotel along the river downtown. I never stayed anywhere where every single person we came in contact with were super friendly. From valet to front desk, to the men pouring the complimentary wine during wine hour,…

Remember when I blogged about…

…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…

Lucy and Company Portfolio full of color and pattern play

I came across Lucy and Company portfolio and spent a good 20 minutes admiring the work of that talented team last night and probably another 20 minutes this morning. Every room feels staged but not in a stuffy way. The homes feel comfortable and relaxing. What I like the most is the different uses of…
