i’m not sure if all these rooms belong in the same home – but it seems like if they don’t – they could. i really love all that natural light, how the plants make everything feel cozy, and how high, modern pieces are mixed perfectly with items that look like they could have come from a curb alert.
i love all the cool toys for the kids to play with – that little sheep – the teepee – - wouldn’t it be fun to grow up here?!
so i’m very excited! remember i was telling you about that little thing i am working on called le registrie? well – tomorrow is a big day – i mean it’s not huge – but you’ve got to celebrate the small things….. i digressssssss.
anyway – tomorrow, john and i will be taking vignette/editorial photos of a bunch of cool little things – i’ll be styling – and it will be one of the first time i’ll be actually trying my hand at prop styling…. so excited!
we’re taking these photos – which will be front in center in the media kit we are sending boutiques – in hopes that they’ll be so excited to be founding partner shops in le registrie.
below you’ll find our inspiration! soo excited. stay tuned!
i love this fur ottoman sooooooo much. the color of that fur is uh-mazing. i’m debating whether it would be better if the legs were different – or if i like the simpleness of 4 straight legs… what do you think??
so after i wrote that last post – i went back to michelle’s website and found so many more inspiring pieces that i can’t help but share. i also really wanted to post a shot of the flower rug in full. wow-isn’t it amazing!? i love seeing it close up (like in the other pictures i posted) – the details are something else – but then seeing how she infuses this 3D element she plays with – it just takes it to another level.

don’t you just get the feeling like you want to make a chandelier when you look at this picture? like – wow – making a chandelier would be so simple. heh – yeah.
Hotel Basico, Mexico
i love the simpleness of this. i love that getting simpleness just right is an art.
k and i looked at this picture in awe yesterday – like literally 5 minutes of ahhhhh so good – and should we make curtains like that – and lets try to do that. those colors – so good – i am always inspired by the sophisticated yet super fun color palettes the duo imagines up. by the way – this is from confetti system – see the picture larger here (you have to scroll for like a second to get there) – you’ll be sooo glad you did.
on the hunt for the perfect wedding gift for a friend who recently got married – i ran into this amazing serving tray by michael angrove, a UK based artist and designer, at gretel. i love that for less than $50 you can give a beautiful, memorable gift that is also a functional statement piece. still unclear if this will be the gift for my friend – some people have a severe dislike for butterflies as decoration ( i think the tramp stamp was probably the beginning of the decline for the butterfly ) and i don’t know if she is one of them – but a great gift for someone, nonetheless.
and here’s why..
wow – those mirrors (or are they windows) make the room look so industrial modern yet – very approachable, airy, and chic -
mixing textures and styles with those rugs -
love the mixture of warm tones and soft peach walls – did you notice the floors – concrete with a tile accent around the edges – i would have never thought of that -

i am so inspired by this room in the March 2011 Issue of Living Ect. it is light, and feminine, but not too frilly. i also love that the drapes look like they have some weight to them, but let so much light through. i love that the simplest things – like drapes – can totally alter the mood of a room
I’m always inspired by wallpaper and fabric… the silhouettes – colors – patterns – and textures- they can transform a room in an instant!! So imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon Schumacher. Most of what I have featured below are available both textiles and wallpapers – isn’t that genius?! Schumacher has also collaborated with the likes of noteworthy designers Kelly Wearstler, M.P Smyth, and Trina Turk to create their own collections of interior goodness! Below are my favorites!
ha! i was so excited to see this photo… not because the selby took it for harper’s bazaar it has anything to do with vanessa traina. nope, it’s because i have a lucite pendant similar to the one above her desk! so excited to see these making a comeback! i bought mine for a deal and a half at a thrift shop, and then just happened to see the same one in british interiors magazine, living etc. – my domino magazine replacement… although.. if we are going to go there.. nothing can replace domino magazine… nothing.. ok i’m begging now… please bring it back!! but also.. randomly.. here is a mini, unplanned shout out to the lovely people at rue magazine who are trying to fill the shoes of domino.. ok… that’s it.. no more ranting… how did that even happen… oh yes… lucite = domino magazine
so.. i’m obsessed with the new design star winner, emily henderson. she literally is the sole reason why i started watching hgtv again. anyway… i found out she has a blog, and of course- it doesn’t disappoint. not only does she chat about her life and new show, secrets of a stylist, but she shares photos of her flea market finds, design tips and tricks, room inspirations, professional profiles, and tons of other things i’m forgetting that are equally amazing. anyway. i saved a few of her room inspirations..
i love the black cabinets and white walls… mixed with earthy furniture and that amazing rug.. oh and that light bulb pendant light (can you even call it that) in the middle of the room… beautifully ‘un-styled’
anyway.. check out emilys post… (and the rest of her blog) it has lots of pretty room inspirations. style by emily henderson
oh and Frederik Vercruysse took this photo
i am the proud owner of a disco ball- or two.. but come on, this disco ball inspired staircase is absolutely beyond amazing. which leaves me wondering.. how could someone without stairs do something equally as chic and inspired? maybe the inside of a window sill, outdoor steps or garden pavers could be cool, or maybe just a little strip of wall.. like some random, meaningless architectural element that is subtle, but could really pop by adding disco ball mirrors?! wow.. just such a cool idea.
i think this is from rue magazine, or one of their contributors blogs’.
what a great little pop up shop! what amazes me is the attention to detail that was put into the shop, even though it is only temporary. like.. i love the wall papered closet in the third photo, the patch of yellow that spans two walls and the palest pink sheer curtain that casts such beautiful light in the second.. and the mirrors, books, and faux rug in the first… so many great ideas.
