Modern Bathroom Vanities

Modern Bathroom Vanities

With modern design comes specific elements that create exactly what is needed in a modern space. Bathrooms are important rooms that require the perfect vanity to complete the minimalist/modern look. There are certain details that are needed in these vanities. Clean lines, clean wood tones, and modern hardware…to name just a few of those details.

Built in sinks is a huge trend right now. It’s looks clean and simple. And it creates a strong look for the vanity.

Urban Holiday

Urban Holiday

Hanukkah is here and Christmas is just around the corner. No matter how you celebrate the season—and even if you don’t celebrate a specific tradition—holiday decorating can sometimes be the last thing on your mind this time of year. For me, I’m the son who still helps his mom with her holiday decorating and some years the effort that takes makes me decide to skip my own holiday décor. Plus, sometimes being in an urban environment during the holidays takes its toll on a person’s energy level. Whatever the reason, there are years when I don’t feel much like decorating for the season.

But when it’s one of those times and I’m not going to put in the time on my own décor at home for the holidays, there’s still a simple and elegant way to bring in some spirit—in a completely urban holiday way: hanging a strand or two of lights.

Colorful Walls

Colorful Walls

Let me start by saying that white and black walls are my favorite kind of walls. You can pair anything with these neutral choices. But there are times when we need a little color in our lives. One way to introduce color is to paint an entire accent wall in a lovely, bright color of your choice. A colorful wall can create a beautiful backdrop for a beautiful space.

Pale pink has been on the trend radar for a few years now. Painting an entire wall in this hue makes a space look unbeatable. And displaying black and white photography over the pink is equally striking.

8 Fabulous Bathroom Mirrors

8 Fabulous Bathroom Mirrors

I have never lived in an apartment or house with interesting bathroom mirrors. It’s always the standard rectangle hung with small clips. Which does the job, of course, but is far from exciting. I love a good mirror and pulling together this round up of beautiful ones was so fun … and made me want to demo my bathroom.

Only In Miami: Tommy Hilfiger’s Vibrant Beach Home

Only In Miami: Tommy Hilfiger’s Vibrant Beach Home

The story goes like this: fashion magnate Tommy Hilfiger and his wife Dee decided to buy a place near Tommy’s latest project: refurbishing the Raleigh Hotel in Miami Beach. So, naturally, they found a 14,000 square foot place on the beach and decided to bring in “million dollar designer” Martyn Lawrence Bullard to oversee design, then told Bullard “if it’s not shagadelic or groovy, it’s not coming into the house.” Add the couple’s tremendous collection of Pop and post-Pop art masterpieces, a love for all things ‘60s and ‘70s inspired, and a Hilfiger sized budget, and the result is the kind of place that has a Scarface meets Studio 54 vibe—in a good way.

Decorating with Army Green

Decorating with Army Green

A color that keeps me coming back for more is army green. It’s such an unexpected, trendy color that can be paired with most modern spaces. As long as you are working with a lot of whites, blacks and other neutral tones, you can use army green. It also looks fantastic with warm tones, such as reds, browns and warm yellows. Using it in unique ways can bring a dramatic result to your space. And it’s a calm enough green to use in furniture that you won’t get tired of as opposed to a lime green and bright green.

Black Beach Houses

Black Beach Houses

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again (and I’m sure this won’t be the last time): when it comes to designing and decorating your home, my philosophy is “if you like it, then why not do it?” Sure, some folks talk about—and, for reasons that I’m sure are quite justified, worry about—resale value, but there’s very little someone can do to permanently reduce the value of a home; most things can be remodeled, or simply repainted. So, if you want your beach house to have a black exterior—then I say do it! Here are a handful of examples of others who’ve taken the step.
