Totally Inspiring Room

Magenta + campaign dresser = the sexiest combo ever!

I saw this vignette on the website of artist Lulie Wallace and it totally rocked my world! I love how the magenta color on the campaign style dresser just pops off the soft pistachio green. The folky still life and glam gold + animal print chair add extra dimension to the tableau, don’t they? See it featured in Society Social’s “The Manifesto Magalog” along with some other cool girly and glam stuff. Until next time!

The weather here in Charlotte is so changeable, one moment bright and sunny, the next somber and rainy. Today it is sunny and cool but rain is forecast. Being a native Seattleite I’ve learned to carry an umbrella everywhere, no matter where I live… so I’m prepared.

The weather has me thinking about cozy corners like this one. As soon as I saw this picture, I fell instantly in love. There are so many things in this little spot that satisfy my tastes: the comfy armchair covered in a bold, feminine fabric, the dark floors, the exotic looking non-traditional stone of the fire surround, and lots of pretty little touches in the accessories.

I hope you’re having an amazing Tuesday everyone! See you tomorrow… with the pillows I had made to coordinate with the office chair. Until then!

This is the bedroom/office of designer Robert Couturier. The first thing that I think of when looking at this room is how he took seemingly disparate, incongruous things and made them all work so effortlessly together. Zebra print on the sofa, green pillows, pale gray walls, and a round tomato red rug all in one room? Who’d have thought? But it all works wonderfully together. Definitely a totally inspiring room.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Miles Redd + Oscar de la Renta

The more I see Miles Reed’s work, the more and more impressed I become with his amazing ability to pile as much drama and color as possible into a room without making it look like a garish mess. He makes Kelly Wearstler seem restrained, if you can believe it! I adore his work.

Here is a link to a “behind the scenes” look at his revamp of the Oscar de la Renta showroom (over at Lonny Magazine’s blog on Posterous). As always, Redd knocks another stellar design out, and makes it look so homey that anyone could do it. That is talent!
