Retail Therapy: AtHome Milwaukee is now open!

So this week AtHome opened here in Milwaukee (Wauwatosa’s old Kmart on Hwy 100) and I am in love. I have been following them on instagram for sometime so when I drove by and saw we were getting one, I was beyond excited. My coworker stopped there this week and told me she spent 2…

Wood plank headboards …

When I finished my client’s daughter’s room, I was able to salvage some pieces of wood that went to her top bunk. They were throwing the bed away but the wood was in great condition so I set some to the side because I knew I wanted to use it. Her brother’s room will be…

Modern Rustic Interiors and events…

I have a thing about rustic design but it has to have a lot of modern and contemporary elements mixed in. The lighting in this reception is absolutely stunning & it gives an industrial look to the space. I also like the bails of hay stacked in the background… This kitchen space has so much…

Hotel Indulgences: The Ganesvoort NY

So I have been meaning to blog about The Gansevoort Hotel in New York ever since watching The Kardashians take NYC. I remember drooling over the ginormous houndstooth chairs and the mix of patterns, textures and the glamorous look of it all. It is the type of design I crave when staying in a new…

Girly and industrial all at the same time…

How I long to have an exposed brick wall… A loft with black steel windowsills…. I like this sofa for you can sit in two directions and carry conversations with people on opposite sides of the room. It’s a great piece for one who entertains…. See more of this space on Caitlin & Caitlin and…

Nautical Industrial Living Room Design

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I’ve been thinking about nautical design in a non beachy way. Something more masculine and industrial in a color scheme you typically don’t see. You don’t see navys or red hues or aqua and tan instead gunmetal, charcoal gray, black and white is the palette. I wanted to…

My stay at the Ameritania Hotel in Times Square New York…

As you know I was in New York last Sunday thru Tuesday night. I knew it would be magical to stay in NYC during Christmastime and indeed it was. We stayed at the Ameritania NYC and I can’t deny part of the reason I selected this hotel is due to the houndstooth carpeting. That is…

Hotel Indulgences: Prahran in Melbourne Australia

The restaurant design in this hotel is amazing. The circular concept is made out of concrete pipes. That’s right….pipes, the kind you see at roadside construction sites ready to be lowered in the ground. Except…these are used for dining pleasures. This industrial look if offset with leather tufted booths and timber wood wall paneling. So…

Restoration Hardware has some of the most industrial inspiring spaces…

How frigging gorgeous is this. I mean…what! I have always been fond of the symmetrical showrooms and catalogue spaces. This is by far the best. So dramatic and dreamy. I was first drawn to the architectural details of the Boston Flagship store. The windows and molding is breathtaking. I have blogged many times on arched…
