Lonni Paul Design

958-1

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.

Row Row Row Your Boat

MM_openBrWindow('furniture_item_zoom

This mirror caught my eye for its creativity and adaptation of the ever-popular, yet occasionally oversaturated Sunburst Mirror. It’s a comical adaptation and reminded me of the summer houses up at The Lake. The white color makes it adult enough for the entryway but it could also be a fun addition to a boys room when painted in bright colors.

Dory Boat Artist Crafted Mirror by Blithewold Home

Live Serenely, Be Serene.

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.

Susan Ferrier at Her Best

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.

Sleep Tight

Sleep has been sparse lately and purely to get enough energy to make it through the next long day of work and school. Gone are the afternoon naps and late night movies. These heavenly bedrooms would make even the smallest amount of sleep more rejuvinating. A bright blanket in a white room, like the image above, scream of sunlight and summer. Fleeting but still in my memory, I’m going to hang on to that feeling for as long as I can.

Into the Mind of Darryl Carter

Love this rom by Darryl Carter. He can create an amazing thing with just white walls, bare floors and truly beautiful antiques. Sometimes the staging for photography can seem a bit impractical, such as this chair that faces the bed, but when you imagine bedtime stories being read late into the hours of the night, it all seems to make sense.
