Music on the Mend – Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse Black and White Photo

When I hear the name Amy Winehouse, I automatically think ‘hot mess’, but a hot mess with a damn good voice. I can’t say that I was ever drawn to her bitter, sarcastic personality or use of profanity, but I have enjoyed her music over the years. Her talent was undeniable and you know I like the throwback-doo-wop sound. Her rendition of Our Day Will Come on Lioness is a current fave of mine and has definitely been on repeat.

Obviously, I’ll never be able to design a space for Ms. Winehouse, but if I could, it would be full of bright colors and patterns to reflect her ‘colorful’ style and personality. Think lots of leopard, checkers, houndstooth, polka dots, florals and stripes. Retro with the kitsch and fun included.

Vintage Retro Interior Design 1960s Kids Room

I’m in serious Christmas mode so anything resembling the holiday puts a very big smile on my face. If only I could have these chairs for my Christmas time entertaining…OR maybe I can travel back in time to be a kid in this delightful playroom. Either way works for me!

Vintage Interior Design Living Room 1960s Red Teal

When it comes to red, I’ll admit I haven’t used it much in my designs. Even for Christmas decorating, I stayed away from the traditional color, but I’m happy to let you know that red and I have become better friends. I especially love the red in this Vintage Space and how it’s mixed with the teal, jade and seafoam. I see a little more red in my future…

They sure don’t make floor coverings like they used to. How amazing is this diagonally striped carpet?

Green & Red

Vintage Style Green and Red Interior

I’m recovering from Thanksgiving week and getting geared up for Christmas! This is seriously my favorite time of year, although my normal traditions have been thrown a little out of whack since the move. No fear, I’m slowly regaining my holiday self just in time and this room is helping me get in the mood. It’s Christmas without being too Christmas, green with just a touch of red. How are you getting ready for the holidays?

Hi, Lo & Lolo

Eclectic Traditional Dining Room

The Louis Ghost Chair by Philippe Starck is, and has been, the new classic of chairs. I believe it can find a home in pretty much any style, from traditional to modern, Spanish to industrial, or bohemian to french country (assuming you like an element of surprise). For those who can afford the real thing, lucky you. And for those who cannot, there are some good to pretty close options out there. After all, great design should be a luxury to everyone!

Music on the Mend – St. Vincent

St. Vincent at Treasure Island Music Festival

If you’ve been following my blog and tweets, you know I’m a huge fan of Annie Clark from St. Vincent (read major girl crush city, usa). I saw her for the first time last month at Treasure Island Music Festival and she did not disappoint. Not only is she so purdy, she is talented as heck and plays almost every instrument under the sun. St. Vincent’s latest album, Strange Mercy, will have a special place in my heart because it will always remind of the time in my life when I moved to San Francisco with my little family. Her songs make me happy and sad and I don’t think she would have it any other way.

In designing a space for Ms. Clark, I would play off colors like a deep eggplant, mixed with a touch of coral and gold accents. Her home would be a collection of unique antiques and modern finds…a little fancy and a little raw. It would be light and dark, just like her music.

Wary Meyers

I am in awe of the super creative husband and wife team behind Wary Meyers. My friend Jeff sent me over their site and I can’t get over their installations. I love the scale and dramatic nature of each piece, so unique. And of course, they are behind some of those amazing Anthropologie store installations. What’s your fave?
