New year old reminders

After the cocktails are poured, confetti swept up and excitement comes down, we are back to reality and in the swing of our usual routine. You probably have read many blogs already and memes about it being a new year and a new you. Some of the takeaways are things we probably already knew 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.

Design Takeaways from recent pins…

Nothing is better than double doors opening to something magnificent… You may be looking at the floor but I am looking at that velvet and gold booth. That deep peacock teal hue is so regal… I am one of those people that approve of painting wood trim, door, and built-ins. So naturally I would approve…

I loved visiting airbnb to see the interiors of regular people

Seriously the architecture in this home for rent is beautiful. I really like all of the character the arches, trim and molding gives. You can see more here. Throwing a cowhide on the wall is kind of clever… I love the richness of the blue and how it contrasts with the trim. The bathroom is…

This here is probably my fav 6 week challenge reveal of all time…

I mean…listen…this is so incredibly stunning. My fav takeaways: all of it the black walls and molding which gives an element of history and character, the faux white fireplace mantle with ornate details and the warmth by tall candles, the canopy bed without the drapery, the mantle layering, the luxe bedding and the window treatments…

Eastside NY townhouse with beautiful molding and details…

The hardwood floors and molding is what stands out for me in this gorgeous space.  The lighting selected, lacquered painted walls and calming color palette makes it very inviting… The pattern at the edge of the wooden floors are some of the design elements that makes the spaces pop. This arched entry and ornate details…

A Brooklyn home tour

Sofia Berger’s Brooklyn home is full of old charm and architecture. The bathroom is like a spa. It’s totally not something you would expect from the rest of the house. It’s perfectly decorated with carefully organized jars to see things you need at a glance (qtips, cotton swabs, etc). It’s all so beautifully arranged that…

If I could change 1 thing about this monochrome living room

I love the walls and molding details. The curtains are romantic and dreamy. I pretty much like this space except….I would change the seating. I don’t like the slipcovered look and would rather see a creamy tufted chesterfield sofa with two modern sleek armless chairs  anchoring the couch. What would you change? {Designed by Stephen Sills photography…
