Snow White Inspiration

From the bottom of my heart, I must say: Happy New Year!

I am delighted to find the time to obsess over new design inspiration.

I am pleased with so many things that are going on within this photo. Gray walls with white trim the natural birchy brown of the mirror’s frame.

How sparingly they use the sea foam green. Wouldn’t that be a peaceful space to cuddle up and sleep?

I am really enjoying the bedroom design that I am working on…it is a bit like this; quiet and charming with little pops of green! Bit by bit the pieces are coming together.

Any of you have design wishes that came true over the holidays? Mine did!…when Santa brought me this task lamp from you’ll never guess where.

See more photos of this gorgeous Texas home!

Here’s to 2011 being full magic.

Pink and Orange: Bedroom Palettes

It’s an exciting day here at PinkPianos because today I’m featuring the color PINK!

I’ve been combing the internet for Girl’s Rooms that inspire and so far I have found some pretty eye-pleasing spaces. Mostly, I’m looking for inspiration that’s fresh and young, plus works well with sage and pink as I am currently, pre-designing two rooms.

I found out about Lisa Fine a little while back and her gorgeous textiles in Domino Magazine totally charmed me. I was lucky enough to spot her portfolio pics in Lonny Magazine and it’s official, I love Lisa’s work!

I would love to see a nightstand in this vibrant shade of mint green. Right now, I’m so all about the star lamps in a pale pink bedroom. Isn’t that soft glow sweet?

Or check out this amazing room in pink by Sixx Design. I love this studio, I first discovered their book Downtown Chic, over a year ago…

Then, there was the amazing Bravo TV series, Nine by Design, about the family.

I wanted to include a few of these because I am drooling over the shades of pink!

Softer with shades of sea foam green and pink can be very soothing. The gray upholstered headboard with a little pattern totally adds to the space.

Soft shades layered in like curtains or blanket in pink also are amazing! My room was pink growing up, but I do not think I truly appreciated it. There are 2 famous kid’s rooms in pink that I’ll be digging around to show you later in the week!

Can’t wait to hear what you think. What are your thoughts on pink and which room do you really love?

Girl’s Room: Final Photos

These rooms have been 4 months in the making. Just look at how everything has turned out! I love this laid back beachy interior accented by the glow of the coconut shell lamp.

The markerboard tree just grew and grew! First, I taped off the area on the wall, literally taping the curves and lines of the trees branches. Then, I rolled out the dry erase paint, which took a few coats. Another thing to note, is that it sets up very fast, so when working with the mixture be prepared to paint one layer, then allow it to dry 15 minutes between coats. Using a smooth foam roller provides a flat finish on the wall. I did a simple outline in light brown with sunshine yellow and sky blue accents. The leaves are wrapped in shades of green linen and made from cork, so they double as a place to hang up art as well.

I am also happy with the outcome of the custom made bench! We designed the seat cushion to be sewn from an Amy Butler fabric called Knots.

The drawer pulls are glass from Restoration Hardware. I love these!

One more detail that finishes the room are the capiz shells that line the curtains.

If you missed the before pics from this series, click on the Metamorphosis button to the right. Mia’s room is glowing with shades of lilac and silver and I really like how the two-tones or purple allow the architectural details such as the chair rail to pop out.

The lofted ceilings are so beautiful on their own, but the new Maskros light made of wire and paper from IKEA sure does hold it’s own in the space. At night, the light casts tiny little circular reflections on the walls.

We are really happy with the way the rooms have turned out. The Fatboy beanbag and silver cubes are the perfect accessories for a teen ready to chill out with her friends. I’d even love to have  the black dress form to dress up the night before, when planning tomorrow’s outfit!

Did I mention that there’s also a disco ball?!

Oh and coming soon, I can show you Mia’s bed, which is amazing. It will be assembled, when I return from my vacation. Of course, there will also be professional pics of both rooms. We are currently seeking an interior photographer looking to build their portfolio of work.

It would be hard for me to choose which room I like the best because the styles are so different! Which elements of the design do you prefer and why?
