(More) Intriguing Spaces

I love it when I come across a unique space.  Even if it's not necessarily what I'd choose for myself, it may be perfect for a client looking for a one-of-a-kind design.  These spaces do exactly that.  Enjoy!

You may have noticed that all of these have true statement art.
I think that adds a level of sophistication that can't be beat.  
My advice:  Buy one of a kind art (available at every price point) that speaks to you!

Thanks so much for reading.

Stunning Chihuly Glass!

Hi Everyone...hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Today's post isn't related to interior design, but it is certainly related to beautiful design.  

I had such a great experience on Saturday afternoon.  We had a friend in town and we ended up going to the Chihuly Museum of Garden and Glass.  I have long been a fan of Washington-born Dale Chihuly, but this museum  It was such a beautiful experience I just had to share it with all of you! 

Take a look at a few of the pieces that we saw:

His time spent growing up around Puget Sound influences his sea-inspired and native american work.

Many of the installations were set in natural settings, reflective of his inspirations.

I hope you enjoyed the tour.  If you ever get to Seattle, don't miss this museum!

Design Detail: Shelving

A client project will usually include some type of need for shelving - whether it be for practical storage or beautiful display, but of course as a designer my goal is to provide both!  Here are a few gorgeous examples of where shelving can be put to great use without sacrificing an ounce of style:

How adorable for a girl's room...

I love to fill up a small pass-through space with something like this!

An added detail that introduces great depth.

I blogged about these before...I just love this floor to ceiling design with the great hardware.
I'm hoping a new construction or remodel client will want to do this very soon!

Probably my all time favorite bookshelf - for an office or living room.  
Although built ins are great, the versatility that free standing shelving has is tempting for any client who wants flexibility in their designs.

I love that these shelves are only filled with BOOKS.

Great detailing along the top.

A fresh take on the back of the shelf: reclaimed wood provides great texture and age.

A beautiful option for a dining room!

I hope you enjoyed this post.

My Favorite Things: Limestone

Hi Everyone!  Hope you had a great weekend.  

Today's post is about one of my favorite materials:  Limestone.  My love affair with it continues.  You may have noticed that theme when I have posted in the past about exteriors but today I bring you a few other examples, inside and out.  Enjoy!

What a stunning room divider!


Isn't it lovely??

A Shock Of Great Art

A room really comes alive with something unexpected.  These rooms let a unique piece of art do all the talking, which I find so appealing!

Have a great weekend!

A Brick House...

There's something so stately about using brick in design...take a look at some of these beauties:

Even just as a border...

One of my *all time* favorite spaces...the washed brick is divine!

Is there such a thing as too much brick?  Perhaps...


Lovely and soft...

Just in case you're interested.  :)

Great surround for the oval window!

Steel doors and this brick design give a more modern, Euro look.

Wishing you a lovely day!
