Currently I’m searching high and low for exterior paint inspiration for a bungalow project that I’m working on and came across this gem. Take a look…

By using dark shingles and painting the porch white it really brings the focus to the porch. The baby blue accent on the shutters adds a touch of softness and color — perfection!

I love how the arches on the porch frame out the light fixtures and hydrangeas perfectly!

Love the hydrangeas in black planters!

Several weeks ago I did a post on Black + White Interiors and the beauty of a crisp and simple palette for the interior. Today, I’m sharing how well a black + white palette transfers to the exterior as well.

The appeal of going with a black + white exterior, is that the focus becomes the architecture and/or the details (i.e. shutters, front door, hardware, plants, etc).

Above, a project I did in Texas. Before, the exterior was a bit busy but by painting the brick and trim white, it calms the eye and allows you to focus on the details.

 

Some of my favorites…

 

Happy Friday!

Recently, I’ve been searching for an ottoman for one of my projects and came across some beautiful examples on incorporating one in your own home.

I love using ottomans every chance I get for both interiors + exteriors — they have great versatility. You can use them as a coffee table, kick back and prop your feet up, or as extra seating.

Have a great Tuesday!

Happy Wednesday! Today, I’m sharing my latest hotel crush — Casa Cook in Rhodes, Greece. A boutique hotel designed by architect Vana Pernari and interior designer Annabell Kutucu. I can’t decide which I’m in love with more — the interior design of Casa Cook or the exterior design. Which is your favorite?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Being back in Mexico I’m reminded of my long-time affection for the Equipale chair. It’s funky yet comfortable and when the leather fades a bit — looks incredible. Now, with the Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles giving it so much attention, as well as places like Venice Beach and other cities along the California Coast, it’s had a rebirth and I’ve never seen it look so good! Below, are some gorgeous ideas on how to use this very cozy & versatile chair.

One of my favorite ways to add a little beauty and drama to a home is by using large branches. I’ll clip them from pretty much anything and place them in vases, jars or even my favorite piece of pottery. Not only are they fun but they can last much longer than flowers. Below, are some of my favorite examples.
