Modern Home with Holiday Whimsy

As I gravitate more towards the not so bright color palettes, I’m instantly pulled back when I see homes like this. The home of this young family in London is a gorgeous backdrop for their whimsical holiday decor. That tree makes my insides smile 🙂

Simple Christmas Tabletop Decor

How is it already the second week of December and I haven’t posted one thing about Christmas?!? Well, per tradition, I put up all my decorations and lights (which I’ve scaled down to one box) the Friday after Thanksgiving. I decided to go with a baby tree this year, which was soooo much easier than getting a normal size tree, and I’m about halfway done with my Christmas shopping (thanks Amazon!). All of this leaves me much more time to craft and get fancy with my gift wrapping. I heart you Christmastime.

Cozy Fall Interiors

All I can think about is how much I will be gorging myself this coming Turkey Day. I’m a bit more excited this year compared to any other year because I will be making the entire Thanksgiving meal, including my very first turkey. The menu has been set and the first grocery run was a success. Time to tidy the house and get everything cozy. Here are some interiors to inspire…

Sintra 1012 Progress

Still lots to do, but wanted to share a few photos of the Sintra project I’ve been consulting on.

Here’s the back area of the lounge and this space looks significantly better! We removed all the wall tiles (so many wall tiles in this house!), replaced the tile flooring with wood and papered this small alcove.

This is a hallway in one of the suites. We replaced the tile flooring with wood and removed all the wall tiles. Added a chair rail to give the hallway some architectural interest and gave it a fresh white coat of paint. The chandelier needs to be swooped so it’s centered in the hallway and it still needs its shades.

Here we have the communal kitchen. We removed all the tile and replaced it with a staggered subway tile. We ‘re going all white with white cabinets and a wood countertop to add some warmth. Tile needs to be grouted and cabinets are waiting for their doors and toe.

This is a massive, antique cabinet that will live in the kitchen and it got the re-loving treatment with a few coats of robin’s egg blue paint.

More to come!

Pure and Simple

I’ve been known to use a little pattern and color but lately I’ve been gravitating towards the pure and clean. It might be because of all the mumbo jumbo that I’m constantly surrounded by, whether it be magazines, paperwork, samples, or my husband’s pile up chair. The list is never-ending.

On the opposite end of the spectrum is the home of architect Nicolas Schuybroek. He turned this butcher shop into an office and home for his small family. The home is clean and minimal but has many classical elements. The simplicity of the colors and the warmth of the wood finishes make this habitat a welcoming one.

I guess I can find solace in knowing that people are living a purer and more simple life than I am. One day…

The Battery

The Battery Private Social Club San Francisco (4)

The Battery, a new club in SF’s Financial District, has a gourmet restaurant, a few bars, a wine cellar, a gym and spa, a library, meeting rooms, an outdoor garden and 14 hotel rooms, including a penthouse suite with views of the Transamerica Pyramid and the Bay Bridge (phew!) – and it’s all invitation-only. This private social club is located inside a turn-of-the-century marble factory and has a bougie, village pub feel, beautifully executed by designer Ken Fulk. Prospective members must be nominated by an existing member and dues are $2,400 a year…although it may seem a bit elitist, the social media millionaires that created this club want it to be a place where members can discuss the arts, ideas, current affairs, wine, food and less about computer use and shop talk. Guess most of us will be admiring the space from the outside…
