Love this entryway story from Burnham Design, one of my fave LA designers. The combination of bold patterned wallpaper, classically worn rug and luscious greens embodies Trioz design and the Power of Three. Everything she touches is perfection…
Another favorite look for an entryway is this bold checkerboard pattern that signals great things to come in the rest of the house!
This look is from Burnham Design in LA. I love pretty much everything they do…..
The entryway to a home can be the most magical space in the house, greeting you and setting the tone for everything to come. This design from Burnham Design (who I just started following on Instagram) is so perfectly elegant and serene and inviting, I want to move in!
This design also demonstrates the power of a table and a bookshelf for telling a story. They serve as a blank canvas on which you can layer elements that take the space far beyond the ordinary. In this case the way the designer clusters the vases in an over-the-top way I like to call “chunking it up”, adding dimension, volume and color. Combined with the recessed bookshelves that she treats almost as an art gallery with a beautiful, monochromatic mix of prints, books and art objects. Genius!
I took a bit of a break on house projects after starting a new job last September and with the holidays taking up all of my deocrating bandwidth..but am now redoubling efforts to transform our house into our HOME.
So now getting back to LIGHTING projects…
Slowly but surely I’ve been working my way through the house removing all of the quasi-industrial brushed metal frosted glass light fixtures installed by the developer, who clearly watches the same HGTV reno show over and over again.
After falling in love with this chandelier at PB, I had to find a place to put it and decided to install in the corridor between our master bedroom and master bath. It looks incredible, adds so much dimension and makes the whole space feel warmer..
A GARAGE DOOR like this will add texture and a modern element to the facade..
FOLDING GLASS WALLS like these, to open the space up to an indoor/outdoor flow…
A LIVING ROOM SOFA like this one from Lillian August in a larger size (115 in) that will fill the length of the living room..
A MEDIA CONSOLE like this one from Horchow that will upgrade our family room. The challenge is finding one where you can use the remote control with the doors closed..
ART for the many vacant wall spaces, including the dining room, stairwell, upstairs hall, and family room. Michael Cutlip, a San Francisco artist whose work I love and aspire to collect some day. The piece below called PETALS has a spot reserved in the dining room..
A STAIR RUNNER that adds texture and warmth to the cool blonde wood of our staircase. LOVE the geometric pattern of this runner from David Hicks!
The MASTER BEDROOM WALK-IN CLOSET has to be super efficient because the space is small, it’s more like a maxi reach in closet..this one’s gonna be a challenge!
MASTER BEDROOM CLOSET DOORS like these to replace the original sliding doors, giving me easier access to everything!
Modern LANDSCAPING that incorporates arid and easy to maintain planting, as well as cable fencing which ties into the upstairs deck and interior stairway..
KITCHEN EXPANSION that opens up a kitchen wall and the living room wall into the side courtyard, creating an the indoor/outdoor flow..
Smaller scale SWIMMING POOL that works in our backyard the shape of a pizza slice..
And a MUD ROOM!
These are two I like for the storage and style..
