Home projects continue…installing the stair carpet!

I’ve always been a fan of pattern on pattern (on more patterns), which is why I’m so happy with the way my new carpet looks in the entry stairway!

IN LOVE with the way the Pioneer Key pattern in “Dusk” plays off the taupe-on-taupe striped walls.

Together they transform the entryway into a bold WELCOME, while adding warmth and comfort that feels so nice under your feet!

The carpet is the Atelier line from Stanton Carpet and paint from Benjamin Moore.

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?!

Stairway Transformation

Home projects week 5! 

Excited for the stairway transformation underway in my new townhouse…

Step I. Paint palazzo stripe walls for dramatic entryway that greets guests with a warm Welcome!

Step II. Replace black rod iron stair railing with lighter more modern cable rail system

Step III. Paint stairs all one color for continuity and a neutral foundation underneath the carpet runner

Step IV. Install stair runner for warmth and cozy comfort under our feet (esp the new puppy we’ll be bringing home in two weeks)


I’ll share all the steps here as they happen. So more pics to come soon!

STRIPES!

Nearing completion on the transformation of our stairwell with these fantastic sky high stripes. Now starting to think about whether to do curtain panels, plantation shutters, roman shades or bamboo rollers for the sky high window…

Then on to the stair runner and whether to go with a more plush carpet in a solid color, or something natural like a sisal, or do we go bold and graphic like the David Hicks hexagon pattern below, which I LOVE!
