Totally Inspiring Room

The living room of John Derian’s new apartment. I love the rustic but clean style!

This lovely living room is in the apartment of decoupage guru, John Derian, and is situated in a building which has been standing since the mid 1800’s. Apparently Derian is drawn to all things beautifully old and decrepit, so much so that he was reluctant to change much when he bought this apartment. Still, modern building codes required some updates so he undertook the task with the help of a sympathetic contractor. I think the final result turned out wonderfully!

The updated bedroom.

The bathroom was completely overhauled but I think that the spirit of the original style shows in its design.

You can read the New York Times Magazine article on the renovation and see more before and after pictures. I love how serene and livable the whole project looks.

This room from Atlanta Homes & Gardens is so gorgeous! I love how elegant and livable it looks. But the three pieces that make this room killer for me: the rug, the curtain wall, and those amazing brass pendants over the night tables. Gotta love it!

Happy Tuesday all! Have a great day!

Soft Touch

Its a soft, gray, rainy day here in Charlotte today. I was planning on putting these pics but the soft, muted colors seem especially appropriate given the melancholy Springs weather.

Here is a serving of rain washed colors for this not so sunny spring day:

In the Green Room…

I’m posting late today, I know. I just started a new job so I’ve been a little preoccupied! Still, that’s no reason to skip this Monday’s color post… and here it is – all things green. Enjoy!

The first time I saw this kitchen was in Elle Decoration UK. I loved the open shelving a the pretty green mosaic tiles.

Does grasscloth ever look bad?

Honestly, my favorite thing about this room is the coffee table but I also love all the different shades of green an yellow working in harmony.

Tobias Fairley also mixes greens here in this living room… the blue and white accents really make it pop.

image
Definitely green… but subtly so.

Making a focal point out of a green table is genius.

A solid and massive emerald green coffee table makes this room full of neutrals interesting.

Heath Ceramics subway tiles in multiple shades of green lend this simple bathroom depth and energy.

Pinkalicious.

Here’s a look at some pink interiors. The latest issue of House Beautiful is all about this versatile color and features a plethora of options for using it in your home. It totally inspired me to be on the lookout for beautiful pink rooms… Here are some that I found while browsing last night. Enjoy!
