Two Red & Black Libraries

Loving these two library rooms filled floor-to-ceiling with books and injected with black and red for an element of drama.

Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

Beautiful boxes, a basket, and vintage suitcase provide ample storage and keep the color story consistent. A white stand near the door keeps umbrellas contained and readily accessible. The dark wall colors (love those stripes!) help the TV and DVD player”disappear” and keep them from being eyesores.

Idea for the Kitchen: An Open Cubby Unit

Little bright spots of order can be transcendent, especially if they’re resolved in a stylish way :-)

You can tell everything in the cubby is purposefully there. With open units like that, belongings need to be edited down for it to look that good.

House of Honey

Currently swooning over the design projects over at House and Honey. I love the way designer Tamara Kaye-Honey uses updated classics to create elegant yet very livable interiors. My favorites from her:

Did you notice the marble countertop in the kitchen that runs down the sides of the island? That’s definitely going in my dream home inspiration file! What about you, any favorites?

P.S. She also has a decor shop in South Pasadena. I hear it’s filled with a beautiful selection of wallpaper and fabrics, whimsical and playful accessories, and unique pieces of furniture. I must visit!

Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

This week’s beautifully organized space of the week is from the home of fellow design blogger, Bryn of Bryn Alexandra Interiors. Bryn recently created four beautiful bulletin boards to post and organize her inspirations, sketches and fabric swatches. I love the idea of having multiple boards -one for each project. Great for us visually oriented types!


If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Bryn’s blog. She’s a very talented interior decorator in Charlotte, North Carolina who regularly blogs about her design projects, DIYs, inspirations, and pieces of her life :-)

Beautiful Gallery Wall & New Online Mag

I love gallery walls so I was delighted to see this one from Caitlin Wilson‘s home featured in the premiere issue of the Australian online magazine Adore Home. I love the way it’s configured and the chevron pattern as its background!

Happy Weekend!

Sorry for the absence Thursday and Friday. I was a busy busy bee and unfortunately didn’t have much time for blogging. Anyways happy it’s the weekend and have some leisurely moments now. I finally had a chance to sit down and enjoy the premiere issue of Rue this morning. As expected it was filled with stylish inspiration galore. My favorite home tour was Crystal‘s simple yet glamorous bachelorette pad.

Her home is a perfect example of the fact that you don’t have to have tons of money to achieve a chic, beautifully put together decor. Several of her pieces were from Ikea and local thrift shops.
What was your favorite home tour? If you haven’t checked out the magazine yet -click on over!

So many lovely things in these photographs: the soft grey polka dot chiffon blouse, tall ceilings, sheer curtains, beautiful sunlight, mirrored vanity and the vintage chair…
