Nursery Inspiration

I am heading to Dallas this weekend to visit my sister and meet my brand new nephew.  My weekend plans made me curious about his new nursery and got me thinking about how I may want to design my own child’s nursery one day.

My first thought was Art for Kids, which is a beautiful furniture store I stumbled upon while visiting one of my favorite parts of Los Angeles.  I pulled these photos from their website.

This is Mariah Carey’s Nursery Designed by Gail Sedigh of AFK

AFK has a great collection of pictures for children’s rooms.

     

Restoration Hardware for babies is one of my favorites.  I need to own this mirror – I love the architectural elements of it.

Notte Fatata Collection by Savio Firmino = stunning

         

Serena and Lily never disappoint

I love these…

As much as I love traditional design, I would REALLY love to have a contemporary nursery.  DucDuc is one of my faves

This one is my DREAM nursery

This Nurseryworks design is a modern twist on 15th century British architecture and furniture.  I love the playful colors and lacquered finish.


Up, up and away…

Ceilings are often neglected when designing a home, but they are one aspect of an interior space that can really pack a major punch. I love these unique ceiling designs.

I love coffered ceilings and trimwork detail – so regal and timeless

 

These patterns are gorg.  I love the look of a wallpapered ceiling in a bathroom.

 

Natural wood is great for a vacation home

 

…especially when it is in an interior like this.  The ceiling in the room of this ski house is amazing, but the entire design is so chic – the wall of windows, the fireplace, the white furnishing – it is my dream ski “cabin.”

A finished wood ceiling is just as special, but can create a more polished look

 

Beams on a ceiling make the space appear cozy

This orange high-gloss ceiling in designer Jefferey Bilhuber’s Manhattan apartment is definitely eye-catching


The ever-so-chic Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo – the well-deserved subject of countless fashion blogs around the world.  In my eyes, she can do no wrong.  I envy how consistently she puts together a chic and simple, yet creative look.  Not only is she a knock-outl, but she has the much coveted ability to effortlessly combine peices from Zara or H&M with those from Hermes or Chloe.  It takes a true fashionista to successfully pull it off every time.

Here are a few of my favorite looks:

               

      

       


Today is all about Grey

My current design obsession is anything transitional, feminine and from the grey or neutral color palette.  I love the delicate and ethereal quality of these interiors because they look almost as light as air, but still have a substantial quality to them.  Plus neutrals keep everything light, fresh and clean. By matching the color of the floor-wall-ceiling, you can make any space look much bigger.

These two images are from a townhouse in Beacon Hill designed by one of my all time favorite local interior design firms – Lewis Interiors.

             

I also love, love, love this living room.

So pretty!


                 



Hello & Welcome

Hello and welcome to my blog!  This is my first experience with blogging, but having majored in journalism as an undergrad, I have always found it easiest to express myself through the written word (although, I must admit, I’m a little rusty.)  The point of this blog is to create a forum for all things beautiful, unique and otherwise interesting.
