some decor inspiration for the upcoming week
I have several projects and am trying to find a balance between my love
for french decor and modern glam

i adore these delicate gilt frames for art throughout the home

Delicately framed drawings

and touches of silver + gold together

I have a mantle to decorate and will be choosing a perfect piece of art and 
some accessories to capture a blend of modern and vintage
Whats your favorite thing to see above a mantle?
a mirror  |  a painting {my fav}  
its hard to choose

Grey fireplace

the guest bath needs this glam treatment  | some glitzy sconces + black framed original art
I have the perfect sterling silver tray for guest towels on the vanity!

Love the Bathroom mirrors

now I LOVE dupioni drapes but the budget wont allow so I'm pondering an idea for 
making them from linen drop clothes....a fab look for the price

catherine kwong design

a crisp white kitchen + pale grey walls + black counters + stainless appliances
is a perfect backdrop for some delicate glass vases filled with hydrangea 
and more thin gold gilt framed sketches

No toe kicks  Austin Patterson Disston - kitchens - two-tone kitchen, raised kitchen island, burled walnut, wanut kitchen island, burled walnut kitchen island, raised walnut kitchen island, marble countertops, kitchen base cabinets, white base cabinets, shaker cabinets, white shaker cabinets, Moroccan lantern, kitchen lanterns,

I'll be painting several dressers | a desk | a bookcase | headboard 
with my own chalk paint and distressing to create this vintage french feel throughout the home

Idea for My Gray Master | ZsaZsa Bellagio – Like No Other

and recovering a chair or two with linen | and sewing some stenciled linen pillows


also...sanding and sealing an outdoor glass top table + chairs ...all raw wood for the back deck
its going to be a busy couple of weeks!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week.... happy designs!

with the chill of winter settling in the south ......we've been cooped up inside and have been
obsessively watching 'The White Queen' series.  Its an amazing story of the throne of England, and
the wars of the Plantagenets, claimants and kings who ruled England before the Tudors.
This one in particular, King Edward IV... played by Max Irons...{wowza}
 and Queen Elizabeth...aka the white queen herself, played by Rebecca Ferguson... {awesome}
{based on the novel by Philippa Gregory} 

The White Queen (2013)

keep reading for a trailer that introduces the characters of this enchanting tale...

I've been captivated by these lovely lucite tables
and how they bring a certain luxe factor to the decor of these rooms.
The designer could have tossed in a typical dining room table here...
and it would have been beautiful....but this lucite one....it takes it to another level of total luxe.
Lucite table base with, I believe, a mirrored top. Wow!

I'm so loving this room by Lisa Luby Ryan 
Its my inspiration for the decor on a new project
Cant decide what I love more......those denim covered natural wood chairs
or the awesome lamp...the artwork ...the sofa... oh geez...all of it!
