A few of Greg Natale’s designs and heavy usage of black…

This is the prime reason why Greg Natale is one of my favorite interior designers. He gets that you can have high end luxury and opulence without sacrificing function. His spaces always seem comfortable. In the past I called it liveable aesthetic because that’s what it is. Despite the fact that the materials are textured…

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…

My Office deets….

I’ve been looking for ways to incorporate some greenery in certain areas of my home. I kill plants. I’m not good with them and don’t have a green thumb. So for me, selecting faux potted cacti from Commercial Silk was the best option. I can get the look of real plants without the hassle and upkeep. And…

October is here…which means Christmas is in a few weeks..

Is it me or did the summer fly by, September was gone in 2 eye blinks and now it’s October? It’s like the holidays are literally around the corner and Christmas will be here in no time. Here are some snippets of my office. I changed some stuff around and added new decor like this…

Some lovely outdoor spaces…

Lately in Milwaukee it has been very humid and hot. The last several nights have been 80 degrees which I love. I’m still saving to purchase my home in a few months so I put off jazzing up my patio space. Last night when I sat on the front porch and enjoyed the breeze, my…

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…

Greg Natale Designs…dark masculine 3 level home…

Built in conjunction with Greg Natale Design and Hully Liveris, this home is everything!  There’s geometric patterns and herringbone designs through out the three levels but it all works. The key is using the same color palette when using multiple patterns. Art just pops when placed on dark walls. I saved many rooms of this…

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…

Design Takeaways: Go Bold or Go Home…

I admire designers who can convince a homeowner to go bold with walls and ceilings. A lot of people shy away from it because of the labor and time it takes to change it all back if the look isn’t what they wanted. I understand that but wow…what a statement if you take the risk. …

Bold bathroom tile & wallpaper designs…

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…

Shopping with PinkLion for the holidays…

A while back I was introduced to PinkLion which is a company that curates products from  independent brands to bring you a seletion of modern, crafty essentials. I was gifted a print by Latte Design in my favorite theme: coffee. Anyone who knows me knows I live for my Dunkin Donuts and McCafe coffee beverages….

Remember when I blogged about putting chairs in odd corners?

I intially blogged about ways to make use of odd corners and featured the pic below. You can see that post here. Then I came across Coco & Kelley’s post showcasing the entire home. It’s dark and moody and the palette consists of just gray, white and black. The textures and layering allows the space…
