Black and White Guest Room Preview

Over the past month, it has been super fun working with my client Paul on his amazing house in Burbank. Right now, we are focused on making a comfortable and cool guest room for his many worldly guests. Here is a sneak peak of the inspiration and finds along the way.

The actual headboard that we have chosen is a wingback made from a soft gray linen.

We are going to be adding pops of brass hardware, which lend an air of Hollywood glamour.

The nightstands are similar to the ones in the pictured in black, but they are vintage finds!!! I think the lightness of the base on this makes them perfect for his space.

(Please ignore the truck grill;)

We are having them lacquered in black. See all the pics from the Santa Monica Flea Market outing on my Instagram.

I love this black and white art collection that I found via Pinterest. Although, it may be a bit more modern than what we are going for, I think the prints and frames are perfect.

More black and white good ness… I really just can’t get over how great the white bedding, charcoal gray wall, and  the crystal clear lamps look with natural wood. I just love the simplicity.

Well, I hope you have plans for an amazing weekend! I will be at the Patchwork Festival, this Sunday in Long Beach, please swing by for a visit if you are in the area. (Details here)

Cool Blue Living Room Refresh

As a part of my vow to refresh our living space this Spring/Summer, I have also promised to do a quick spring cleaning of my blog as well. (ahem! anybody notice the new banner?!) That was all me;) I guess fiddling around with Photoshop for the past 5 years has started to pay off. Although, I do need the expertise of a pro graphic designer for the remaining look and feel.

Many of you have asked to see the results of a client home restyle that I did this Spring. I am happy to finally share the results of the photo shoot with you.

All photos are credited to Amelia Tabullo photography.

 

Originally, this mirror was a tricky one to find. In fact the search for a round 24″ mirror inspired me to create this hanging leather belt mirror.

DIY explained here.

In this case, all of the waiting and hunting around really paid off in the end, when I came across this metal porthole mirror. It is steely with a tinge of blue and really reminds me of something from the side of a ship. I just love how she captured the reflection of the books in the mirror peeking through.

In my opinione, the juxtaposition of the warm walnut and cool blue is what makes this really work.

This project was all about working with we had and streamlining the look with accessories. For example these custom walnut sofa wraps can be made to fit any size sofa and really added warmth and interest to the IKEA KIVIC sofas that my client already owned. The wide arm works so well with a wrap!

Other accessories included custom slipcovers, pillows and throws. I really like the combination of cobalt blue with the brown walnut wood.

If you’re looking for more living room design ideas, head over to see the almost completely updated version of my design portfolio here.

I will be sharing some clicks of this fruitful photo shoot.

Have an inspired week!
