Shoe Blues

Clockwise from top left: Fioni Kutzie Knot Pump – $30, Lela Rose for Payless Mapleton Printed Wedge – $55, Isabel Toledo for Payless Espawind Flatforms – $55, and Christian Siriano for Payless T-Strap Wedge Sandals – $30

I took a quick trip to Payless Shoes (yes, Payless). I was looking for work shoes of the non slip, non marking, oil and water resistant variety. Exciting right? When I didn’t find anything comfortable or attractive in the work shoe department, I thought a quick browse of the new Spring styles would be fun. The four styles above were some of my faves. Apparently, I’m liking blue… and stripes!

Better late than never, friends! Happy Monday… I certainly hope yours was better than mine. See you tomorrow with a totally inspiring room.

Totally Inspiring Room(s)

Sometimes when you’re looking at interiors, you come across a space that speaks to your soul. Perhaps that’s a little melodramatic but I was so entranced by Darcy Miller Nussbaum’s home in the February 2012 issue of Architectural Digest that I’m sure woke the dead with all my oohing and aahing. There is loads more of this winning design by MR Architecture + Decor at Architectural Digest.

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. 🙂

Today’s room is from the latest issue of Traditional Home. It is the study off of the master bedroom of designers Roger Higgins and Ann Shipp.

I love how serene this room is: the pale and neutral colors, the comfy looking sofa, the tone on tone walls and trim… So calming! See more of the designer’s amazing house at Traditional Home.

I’m going to see more of my room rearranging project. I’m at the part where you sort through all the junk you found while doing the moving furniture around phase. Not the fun bit… but, it has to be done! I hope you’re all having an amazing Tuesday. Not too cold and nippy but a nice sunny fall day like we’re having here in Charlotte. Catch you tomorrow. 🙂

This is the living room of English architect Richard Found and his wife, Jane Suitor. This room reminds me so strongly of my taste when I first started becoming interested in interiors and architecture (strict minimalism, neutral colors) but also features some elements that embody my style today (elegant chairs, classical figures, brass details, and luxurious carpets).

I like the modernist elegance of this room very much… and the André Arbus armchairs and the vintage cocktail table? Amazing!

Have a totally inspiring Tuesday, y’all!

This set of pics is from a home featured in one of last year’s Atlanta Homes & Gardens with interior design by Kay Douglass. All of the pics are from the same house, though in some rooms the designer went completely neutral. See the entire house, situated in Alyse Beach in Florida, in the article Personal Space.
