Wednesday Mood Boards

This is one project that I am really looking forward to. It is the initial design concept for a holistic spa and medical lobby. I am working with a clean palette and shades of natural healthy feeling greens.I am loving the lace pendant that is on sale at Crate and Barrel for this space. It is so soft and elegant. Although, this is just the beginning and a lot could change within this calming and refreshing space.

In contrast to the board above, here is another source of modern classic and slightly more dramatic inspiration. We are working very hard to create a cozy bedroom using many textures and finishes together, such as combining matte black lamps and little pops of brass. Best of all, the art is on it’s way!!!…and I will have a picture soon of an Ethiopian necklace made from nickel in a gorgeous burl wood shadowbox frame. The art will be placed in a vignette with the scone above the nightstand.

I’m liking the shades of gray with the dramatic bursts of purple too! We are still debating the lighting, so I took lots of pictures today at Rejuventation. Shall I share my photostream of goodies later in the week?  How about you, any projects around the house or great shopping that you are into??

European Garden + Modern Porch Inspiration

I am content to say that this summer has been all about being outdoors, fresh air, swimming and European vacation is on the not-so-distant horizon. I wanted to share with you the Modern European porch that I have been designing along with a few gorgeous photos to leave your Monday feeling inspired.

You may remember Mary Anna’s Porch refresh from a few weeks ago. It is coming together as realized from our Inspiration Board above. We are still in search of the perfect garden stool table. I am really leaning towards the white one in the photo above. .

Here are some leafy reddish plants that my client had potted an placed near her charming boites aux lettres.

Below at left, is an arrangement that I adore! We just had it custom made for her dining room table. At right is one of my favorite combinations of potted lavender and and tiny white blooms.

One last little morsel that I found on Pinterest (oh yeah…I’m hooked!) This is something that may guide my design for our Restoration Home in Kentucky. Looking to put in a more charming and narrow pathway leading from the front of the home to the back. I’m imagining a combination of these two, with large flagstones and moss in between. Which one do you like best…and why? 

Happy Monday folks!
