The living area in a project my Isabel Lopez-Quesada via ECLECchic.
This living room is by Spanish interior designer Isabel Lopez-Quesada. This is my second time featuring her work on a Totally Inspiring Room post and I’m sure it won’t be the last! Her rooms always seem supremely livable and effortlessly chic at the same time. Definitely something I find totally inspiring… not to mention that I’m totally in love with the blue/purple/pink/coral scheme. See more of the project at the blog ECLECchic or see more of Isabel Lope-Quesada’s work on her own website!
A totally inspiring living room designed by Betsy Burnham as seen in the June 2012 issue of House Beautiful.
I finally got to a couple of design mags I’ve had floating around the house and the feature on Betsy Burnhah’s design for a house in Beverly Hills really caught my eye. I love the mix of color, texture, and pattern that permeates every room of this home. It’s got both traditional and modern appeal… and I like it! Check out pics of the entire house at Burnham Design.
Victoria from sfgirlbybay pinned this picture yesterday on Pinterest and it struck a chord. I absolutely adore the floors in the foreground. My dream home will have black chevron/herringbone floors! The vintage globe, midcentury chairs, and and pink hallway are all nice touches too.
Better late than never, today’s edition of totally inspiring room is brought to you by the happy, colorful genius of Palmer Weiss. The mix of new, old, color, playfulness, and unstudied elegance is just right. This is another room I could walk into without changing a thing.
Happy belated Tuesday, all. See you tomorrow… hopefully much earlier!
Originally, I was going to go with an office I found earlier this week… but last night while I was trying to come down off my my late night coffee drinking high (I should never drink the stuff after 11am), I came across this room by Sig Bergamin from Elle Decor. Again. I see it online a lot. And I actually have the issue this apartment was in. At the time, I remember thinking it was a bit too… too! Even though I was seriously drawn to the apartment as a whole, it just wasn’t “my taste”! You know? But a few months and some seismic shifts in what I like have drawn me back to this gorgeously executed room.
I love the balance of graphic print and bright, saturated color on top of well placed neutrals, the juxtaposition of modern art with traditional elements, and the deeply welcoming and comfortable feel of the space. Did I mention the color?
Have an amazing Tuesday all! I’ll catch you tomorrow. :-)
Could a room be any room be sunnier looking than this ode to yellow? It’s a nice shot of happiness during this season of cold, gray, rainy and snowy weather. This is the kind of room that cheers the spirit no matter what the season.
Some standout points of interest for me: the hits of black throughout that keep the room grounded, little bits of shine, and the flame orange art on the far wall. The whole space looks comfortable, happy, and pulled together. It’s definitely a totally inspiring room!
On a side note: the office chair has a fresh coat of Krylon’s Satin Nickel spray paint on it’s frame. In a bit I’m going to head over to Walmart to get a staple gun so I can get the fabric on… hopefully today!
