A fitting subject for my first post for 2018! The entry is the first room guest see, therefore, the perfect place to give them a preview of the what the rest of the home will offer.

By selecting oversized pendants and eye-catching rugs the entry can be the perfect room to make a statement.

This past summer in Mallorca I discovered the gorgeous design firm called Moredesign while reading the magazine, Ideas y Tendencies Interiors.

Founded by Oro del Negro and Manuel Villanueva, they offer services in architecture, design and landscaping.

There is an ease and elegance about the work of Moredesign — it’s unpretentious yet sophisticated. Love it!

If you’re like me you’ve already sent out your Christmas cards, you’ve shopped for everyone and your home is full of Christmas Cheer — HAHA! If I’m being totally honest, as of this moment, I still have Thanksgiving decorations up. So, today I’m listing my top 5 go-to websites to help get us in the Christmas spirit!

1.I love this shop, Hillenmeyer Christmas Shop in Lexington, Kentucky. They offer gorgeous trees, garlands, wreaths and a barn full of animals that kids can pet and enjoy.

2. Home decor magazines like Atlanta Homes, Southern Living and Veranda are also great sources!

3. Another website that has tons of great ideas is Apartment Therapy

4. I also recommend visiting your local garden store to see what kind of gorgeous seasonal products they have in stock. Some of my favorites are Thompson & Hanson in Houston, TX, Petersham Nurseries in London and Rolling Greens here in Los Angeles.

5. Also, One Kings Lane, has wonderful decor for your tree, mantel and table this holiday season.

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!
