The Color of Ink -New Decor Trend

A new decor trend that has an enduring classicism – black and the deepest of charcoal greys, we might even count the inky blues in this category. Whatever the hue, dark moody colors decorate walls, fireplaces and even furnishings. You can select one area in your living room to create depth and elegance, and a bold swash of serious grown up beauty or you can go full in with a nigh sky wall…Enjoy our gallery of exceptional decorating ideas using these deep shades…

Amazing Kids Dinnerware + Table Top Ideas

We finally graduated from our collection of super cute vintage plastic plates + bowels and we are ready to use porcelain plates! I wanted to get something that would appeal to grade-school age kids,  but can be used into the teen years. And I wanted to avoid cartoons and Disney Princesses etc.

We have used a combo of single vintage plates in coordinating colors, and discovered Jim Ward’s (JimBobArt) amazing line of plates with humorous and illustrative style plates, RiceDK and so many great sets, enjoy the beautiful selection!

The Storybook Rabbit Shop on Etsy has great paintings on vintage dishes, like this wonderful rabbit plate above,  and while they run high in terms of pricing, they are just so charming, and make amazing gifts! And the Australian based artisan makes custom orders!

If you chose vintage places I suggest hand washing so the finish does not come off and expose your kids to any toxic paint etc. Do not use cracked plates, and feel free to combine vintage pieces with usually pricey sale items single pieces from department stores, thrift or outlets.

I recently curated an amazing collection of animal themed plates for one little boy, each sources sourced from thrift stores or sales at retailers (where only odd numbers of plates are on sale) so this approach can be used for any taste.

Decor Tips-Using Persian, Moroccan + Oriental Style Rugs

Discover Decorating Ideas-Mixing Modern with Persian, Moroccan + Oriental Style Rugs

jaune min stylist apartmentvia my domaine

 

Whether hand-woven antiques from established and reputable antique and vintage dealers, or found in estate sales, these handmade works of art are beautiful additions to any interior, traditional, spanish colonial, farmhouse and rustic modern, Scandinavian, retro mid-century modern, even contemporary. As well there are a number of fine companies offering beautiful rugs that are handmade abroad including India, Pakistan, Turkey Afghanistan, Iran and various other places. Many of the rugs while they reflect regional traditions including Persian decorative elements and Islamic architecture are made for export and show an admixture of signs, motifs, patterns, and artistic additions.

In no way would one wish to classify these contemporary works of art as “reproductions” or knock offs but rather a continuation of the rich artistic cultures of these amazing designers, weavers and artists. It’s quite amazing to see the creative reworking of multi-cultural motifs, patterns, and framing devices within each design.

If you live in a farmhouse style home or maybe an NYC apartment that has seen better days, add an abstract Moroccan style rug for a layered eclectic look and Bohemian flair. Love the contrast of black painted floors with the cream ground of this beautiful geometric woven carpet.

Here we see a lovely mix of a more traditional rug with an updated office chair, dark walls, industry style unfinished floor, and a farmhouse style desk. Wonderful!

Richness seems a theme here, the beautiful sheepskin throw, ornate patterns on the rug and pillows, offset by white walls, and the cozy feel of a lived space, books, plants and a reading lamp…

Decor Hollywood Regency Style -Project X

via 1st dibs

Project X took me out of my comfort zone is the best of ways… I was thrilled to help a friend and former client develop the glamorous decor and design theme of her very daring home. She wanted something that was Hollywood Regency style but updated and maybe a little over the top in a way that only goes in Vegas. After all, X is a Vegas performer and well, probably one of the most interesting people I have ever met.

This blog is simply a series of mood boards made for X, I am excited to share these collages of sorts because making them was a real adventure for me and they remain visually entrancing…

Dedicated to X and the many risk taking performers, performance artists and adventurers all over the world.

trending interior decor: smoke + fog

A darkly romantic, modernist palette….

 

 

Perhaps inspired by the rich yet transient color, texture and weightlessness of elements, fog, mist, smoke, steam…quiet juxtaposition of antique faded walls with modernist furniture, or ombre walls with regency style fixtures, better yet, a mural made from a photo of a great foggy horizon, or perhaps inspired by a single print that takes the color and depth of  water and smoke….and transforms its form into a sort of captivating mysticism..

Flowers, stacked books, and ambient lighting are always a winning combination.

TRENDING TIPS

  • A stylish lamp -with low light, but bright enough for reading…
  • A few pretty books
  • Flowers always flowers!
  • Keep it tidy! Leave some empty space..
  • Add pretty things you love, and arrange artfully!
  • Keep your bedroom dust free (easily clean up in a non toxic way –make your own cleaner with lemon juice, lavender essential oil and vinegar and use washable rags to dust away! )
