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!

As a designer I look to a lot of places for inspiration and hotels are a great source. This morning I came across this beauty — San Giorgio on the Greek Island of Mykonos and just had to share.

The interior design is by Annabell Kutucu & Michael Schickinger.

Have a great weekend!!

Happy Monday! Today, I’m introducing you to a new project in Lake Balboa; a district in the San Fernando Valley here in Los Angeles. As you can see it’s a perfect candidate for a makeover.

Above, we completely gutted the kitchen so I can now determine the layout. I’m leaning towards eliminating the two smaller windows in the left corner and replacing them with a large window on the back wall to allow for more light and a view of the backyard.

Same view but now with the wall removed

I can’t wait to get my hands on this project and start to see it take shape. I’ll post more photos on the progress in a couple of weeks!

Have a great day!

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.
