Something to make you go aah

Peach and moss.. What a beautiful, bold, color combination!

I find this such a happy space, one that could quite possibly keep me from ever leaving. It is simply a feel good room.

It is refreshing to see the bed floating in the middle of the room, and a wise design choice to frame it with a rug and chandelier.  And that wallpaper! I have a thing for watercolor like fabrics, wallpapers and so on. This wallpaper is by Black Crow, other beautiful wallpapers are made by  Porter Teleo and can be customized.

Fun Power Rooms

Powder rooms are a good place to let loose and add a little extra creativity as less time is spent in them than other rooms; so don’t be shy and put up the wallpaper!

I Adore This Kitchen

October 1, 2011 § Leave a comment

Here is yet another kitchen I adore. The three things I love most about this kitchen (in order) are the arabesque black tiles (I more than love these), the large windows and the fresh cabinetry. I also really like the contrast between the black and white. However, I would have chosen different chairs and perhaps a more playful fabric on the cushions.

Today I visited Mission Tile West; It was like a jewelry store for interior designers.

I have really been liking arabesque tiles, and Tabarka has an amazing collection with many different colors, including metallic which adds a special something.  I love the three dimentional aspect of the arabesque one; arabesque alone is amazing, but this is stunning and unexpected, and I’m always looking to be surprised. The black swirling tile is a nice transition to the following two because it pulls from both the black and cream, whilst adding intrest with its pattern as well. The green tile attracts me because of its crackled jeweled effect. Lastly, I love mixing contrasting pieces, so thats why the black mirrored tile comes in; it adds a contrasting glam factor to the slightly rustic, ethnic arabesque tile

I imagine this as a kitchen backsplash, with the arabesque going up the entire wall behind a white farm sink.

Beautiful wall mosaic. Its fun and fresh and I like it.

It’s not exactly my taste but I still really appreciate it and I love the idea of a full wall, mosaic mural.

A Different Kind of Playful Look – Wallpaper

May 15, 2011 § Leave a comment

This is something I normally would never be interested in, but I kind of love it (for a while.) I would hate it in a living room, or some other main room, but I would love it as an accent wall in a large closet or a bathroom. A young girls room would be playful and appropriate too. Please notice the jewels.

It definitely makes you stop a moment and I like that.

Superfresco Paintable Textured Wallpaper

May 13, 2011 § Leave a comment

I have been in a love of wallpaper phase, and it just got even better. Textured wallpaper (by Graham and Brown) you can paint; Brilliant. It opens a whole new world of possibilities and I love the idea of limitless color choices.

This is on my “to-eventually-have-somewhere-in-my-eventual-house” list.
