Color Concentrate | Blue

If asked to do up a whole room in a single color, I would most probably gravitate towards the always- reliable and 'safe' WHITE, or shades thereof. 

But one look at this All-Blue spectacle by interior designers, Kelli Ford and Kirsten Fitzgibbons, I am tempted to be a little bold and take some risks and. It does take special talent to cover a room, ceiling to floor ( walls included ) in one striking color and come out tops! 



 It's such a gorgeous mix of patterns with absolutely stunning outcome...

Interior | Boho-Glam

A lot of neutral key pieces ( mainly black & white), vintage finds, a nod to her Moroccan heritage ( I spotted a Beni Ourain rug, a moroccan wedding blanket & a bone inlay chest )  and a very obvious love for all things 'brass'. 

These are but a few highlights of Jessica Marx's ( of the blog Life's Little Gems) lovely bohemian abode...Take a peak into this glamorous home...

Library Lust | Vintage DVF

Take a look at Diane von Furstenberg's library at her estate...

I really have no words for this...what a space...My daughter could spend her entire summer holidays in this one room and be entirely content and happy... And I could really get creative at that work-table...This place seems to have such great energy...



What's life...



...without hope...



For the fashion-lovers, some threads and stuff from DVF's archives...

There are leopards in the library...



I'm dying for these bags...the predecessors of the famed 'TONDA' clutch, perhaps...and each one of those prints...



A total surprise..these 'rad-red' fringed pants...so fun!







The lady herself...who doesn't cease to amaze...



And no post about DVF could be complete without the dress that she pretty much owes her fashion career to..She calls it the 'simple little dress'..


 It's a Wrap!

Interior | A Modest Affair With Color

"I wanted it to feel more like a cottage than an estate", says J. Christopher Burch ( Ex- husband of Tory Burch who co-founded her name-sake label with her). Compared to the other mansions along one of New Island's toniest beaches, this one sure is modest and unassuming, as desired by Burch. But it does have its fair share of style combined with an inviting, energetic flair...a holiday home where you kick-off your shoes and spend some quality time with family. There is also a more than modest sprinkling of color to go with the home-owner's playful lifestyle ( as witnessed in the last image!)...

Interior | Mediterranean flair | California dream house

Talk about a dream house in a dream location. A very desirable but difficult to find combination. This  California home got both in spades and HOW! I could move right in and not change a thing...the setting, furniture, furnishings...Not A Thing...Are the Realty Gods listening?

Could there be a better setting than this...










 Pared-down cannot look more perfect than it does here, in this simple yet charming dining room...this is the kind of minimalism I could happily embrace...




 A lovely spot for sipping wine as the sun sets...looking far into nothingness...










 The colors, the wall finish, the linens..so beautiful so organic...




A queen bed topped with twin bunk beds to accommodate the home-owners' many grandkids...a practical yet aesthetically pleasing solution...




I love this study / library..dark, moody and so inviting..It is very much like the library we have in our home...




How striking are these stripes on the floor and ceiling..as if one is a reflection of the other...
