In Love With Color!

I cannot get enough of color and these breakfast nooks bathed in bright shades of yellow just shout HAPPINESS!

This design from Krista Ewart achieves a beautiful balance between classic and modern, and I’m sure inspires the most lively and warm gatherings around this table…

Also LOVE this kitchen nook with banquette and built-ins designed by Lindsey Coral Harper. I mean, where do I start?!

The over-sized pendant light fixture with drum shade, the round table and upholstered round stools create a through line for the eye, with multiple shades of yellow popping here and there, making this space sheer perfection!

I’ve always been obsessed with the color Green (inherited from my mother), but this Granny Smith apple green island and gingham ceiling from Gideon Mendelson is nothing short of genius. 


And you can never go wrong with a tableau of plates to tie it all together. Don’t you agree?!

Obsessed with Kitchens

Ever since moving into my house I’ve been fantasizing about remodeling the kitchen and transforming what is now a small efficiency space into a large indoor/outdoor kitchen and living room combo. The foundation is there and I see the vision, just need to get started on the project!

In the meantime, whenever I see a kitchen I love it gets saved to my “home aspirations board”, and this one from Amber Interiors is the latest one for the board!


The grey/blue cabinetry with gold accent hardware, mixed beautifully with a textured combination of wood and marble surfaces, create a sophisticated yet warm environment. 

Then when you add this beautifully worn oriental rug and view windows over the sink, you have an inviting space I would never want to leave!

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!
