When it comes to interior design, versatility and endurance are two hallmarks of any great material. As both Caesarstone and subway tile are premium examples of both qualities, why not pair them together? Today I’m looking at kitchens that do just that, and do it in a variety of ways.
To me, decorating the bedroom is one of the toughest design challenges. I find the proportions of the furniture tough to work with. That said, I also think it’s one of the most fun rooms to design for because there are so many wonderful design companies out there with really fun products, like bed linens, artwork and dressers. One of my favorite elements is the upholstered headboard. It has the potential to add a ton of pizzazz to the room, through a fun pattern and color. It also adds softness to a room that should be considered a refuge. Here are some of the most gorgeous head frame inspirations out there.
Screens can be a beautiful addition to a room. They provide both a practical and aesthetic function. Practically speaking, they can function as a divider to a space, thus separating rooms with a moveable wall. They can hide messes or act as an impromptu changing area. Aesthetically, they can add visual interest with how they are designed and decorated. Here are some clever ways to divide and decorate a space with screens.
Have you noticed how everything right now is either watermelon or pineapples? I’m digging it! I think there’s nothing more refreshing than a cute fruit pattern in an unexpected place. It adds a dose of whimsy to an ordinary object, while bringing in fun colors. Here’s a collection of some of my favorite ways to incorporate watermelon patterns into your home.
We are all receiving constant impressions from our environments—it’s one of those things you’re not usually consciously aware of—but it is happening nonetheless. Because of this, good interior design will help support your daily existence in ways beyond providing a pleasing space—ways that might largely remain a mystery to you. Today I’d like to take a look at some of the benefits of including square shapes in your décor.
These days, there is a plethora of places to draw design inspiration from: décor magazines, websites, blogs, books, and the ever popular Pinterest. While I love spending my time scrolling or thumbing through styled images and DIYs I’d like to try, the most original inspiration has always come to me through travel.
I remember seeing my great grandmother’s lace stacked in the linen cupboard. It sat there for ages without being used. Had I seen all the cool lace projects out right now, I might have considered putting them to use! There are so many beautiful ways to adorn your house with lace in a modern and refreshing way. Here are some of my favorite uses.
One of the loveliest ways to use Caesarstone countertops is with marble. It feels clean, calm, and luxurious all at the same time. This brilliant combination can be used in the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, or even the studio. Here are some real-life examples of Caesarstone applications paired with marble to create one of my favorite looks right now, and how to achieve the look in the space you are designing.
My husband is an avid book collector. We have boxes and boxes of books in our garage⎯books ranging from nature to romance novels. I appreciate books but sometimes when displaying them, especially in a neutral space, the colors of the spines become overwhelming. I remember seeing the concept of backwards books a few years back and thinking what a brilliant idea it was. Now, there are some drawbacks with backwards books. It’s harder to see which book is which so if you are in a hurry, this may not be the best solution. But my answer for that is to keep your most loved, most read books in a separate location.
The thought of using the color black in interior design tends to bring up a lot of questions and preconceived ideas. I’ve had people challenge me on the very idea of black being a color! And black is so often thought of as funereal, gothic, drab, and unwelcoming, that many simply discount it as being hard to live with. The thought of using the color black in kitchen design—in the room that is the heart of the home—is enough to make even the most adventurous people question my judgment. I want to dispel some of those preconceptions by taking a look at some very successful uses of black in the kitchen.
