I am completely obsessed with this home designed by Lonni Paul for Giuliana and Bill Rancic. The photos do not do it justice compared to the episode of Giuliana and Bill that revealed a walk through of the home. Soft, neutral and a bit feminine, just like I like it.
And their baby’s name is Duke… so good.

Wish a new year upon me, I’m taking myself up on one of my new year’s resolutions and putting these new fabrics to use. The upside of being in the design field is that I am constantly seeing new products and new uses of old products. The downside: my style preference is constantly changing (reason 100 my blog is titled as it is)! This time around I wanted playful fabrics, and the option to change things around without much effort. By creating reversible pillows, the patterns are interchangeable and it should take me a while before I get sick of all six sides.
The new piece above my bed is a photograph by Gray Malin, shot in Marfa, Texas. It’s a Prada store art installation filled with purses and shoes from the 2005 collection. It is sealed shut and Malin has created a series using mules, cowboys and models to bring the installation some humor. Read more about Maison Gray here.

…. on this.
The original title of this post was “GAHHHHHHHH” followed by “THAT BEDDING!!!!!!!!” but I decided to take it down a notch as not everyone shares my absolute obsession with everything scalloped.
In my opinion the wood frame of the bed ages the quilt and makes it look more something-you’d-find-in-an-attic and less put-this-on-my-bed-right-now. And the sconce is nothing special either but the extra scalloped detail on the bedding and the amazing color and lines on that bedside table…. let’s all scream together.
With this bed frame…
And a pair of these sconces…

Nancy Pearson - colorful pillows can easily be substituted with neutral tones for a totally different look
Design can be so subjective and scrutinized to the point that I am sometimes afraid to declare I love something for fear that others will wonder what in the world is wrong with me. Because of my love of creative and colorful design, this happens occasionally but usually it’s just my parents telling me I’m crazy and that my love for a headboard like this won’t last forever.
And while maybe I won’t love that headboard ten years down the road, if it makes me happy now, why shouldn’t I have it? I am a strong believer that when it comes to your home, HAVE FUN with the design. Because everything can be changed and nothing is permanent, especially when it comes to pillows and window treatments, an easy way to add color and pattern to your home.
House Beautiful - this headboard caught my eye
Veranda - that yellow chair.
Annsley Interiors - a genius at having fun with design
Celerie Kemble - sophisticated but youthful, that headboard has my name written all over it
Caitlin Wilson - sometimes the rug takes center stage
David Kleinberg - gutsy.
Traditional Home - go neutral if you like, but make sure the accessories are unique
Yum. Want. Controversial because I’m anti real fur and inhumane animal treatment and this obviously symbolizes a live animal shredded to pieces but it’s so pretty… and only $263… I think I need to go find a faux.
But if you’re game, check it out here.

I’m of the mindset that your interior affects your mood. When your home is well designed, it can create a sense of completion and satisfaction. A serene, muted home can be calming while a colorful, engaging home can be energizing. These soft interiors are just what I need.
Where do I even begin? The floor, the petit settee, the chevon pillow, the powder blue inlay box… pure beauty.
The french daybed, the french doors, the gilded mirror… french design at its finest.
The exterior block elements brought inside, the black double doors, the black and white detailing… clean and crisp.

The architectural creativity that went into these stairs is so amazing. I would expect nothing less of Susan Ferrier of McAlpine Booth & Ferrier. The way the firm plays with natural wood elements, soft furnishings and serene accessories, their portfolio is filled with enviable interiors. See more from this project here.
