DESIGN CRUSH | White Bungalow

What I'm loving about this project by White Bungalow ....well just everything.
This floor is so beautiful with the soft palette of grey, white and metallic.
I love the simplicity of the clean lines and a small dose of pattern.
This space feels so comforting and peaceful....a restful repose to the outside world.

DECORATING | seven favorites for sunday

Its not always easy to pin down your style.... collecting through the years, for my family,
has brought alot of this and that to the mix.  I've discovered bringing it all together with a color
palette is key.  Have beloved chairs recovered, painted furniture and love vintage patinas, saving
your great grandmothers chandelier and have it installed, and then bring in textures.
It's most important to start with a neutral backdrop...good bones and structure.
Then bring in some modern touches and it comes all together.....lovely.

Having a bit of a designer crush right now.... Emma Sims Hilditch is brilliant.
Mixing traditional style with completely modern palette is her specialty and its done to
perfection in the Manor home.
What I'm loving about this room is, of course, the soft palette, 
and the bleached wood finish on the dresser and side tables.

KITCHEN DESIGN | 2015 renovation ideas

A new year ....new designs to gather inspiration from.
If you're torn between light and dark cabinets like I am hopefully
some of these images will help in the decision process.

What's great about this kitchen is the matte finish of the dark cabinets with the glossiness
of the white countertops, tiles behind the stove and the stainless hood.
The trey ceiling is finished in gloss white as well as just makes this room so glam.
An important thing to note about the 'shine' of this room is that it wouldnt/couldnt happen without
great lighting... take note of recessed halogens in the ceiling and those gorgeous fixtures over
the island... no kitchen works without thoughtfully planned lighting.

BLACK + WHITE | in chalk or lacquer finishes

It's no secret...I adore chalk paint ....it's such an easy medium to work with and renders a
gorgeous feel as well as look.  Recently I've been infatuated with grey and now am leaning 
back to an old standard ...black.  I LOVE these lacquer pieces just as much as the chalk.
