Wallpaper is Definitely Back

This beautiful blue and white paper was the perfect choice for updating this powder room. The geometric pattern is hip and modern and the blue and white color combination is so fresh. I'm using wallpaper again so much these days! It's a budgetary solution that adds instant impact. Think about using wallpaper in a small area like a bathroom or entryway to bring an outdated space back to life!

Powder Room Remodel

These are some shots from a little jewel box of a powder room that I just completed for a client. I'm in love with the way it turned out!

We used a beautiful box moulding on the lower portion of the wall and a metallic backed grasscloth on the top. I love, love, love this paper. The shimmery background adds just the right update for this traditional wallpaper.

The marble top on this sink was created from a remnant we had leftover from this client's kitchen remodel. 

We painted the ceiling a rich mocha and added a sparkly light fixture to complete this look. This is definitely a powder room that will impress all of their guests!

Updated Traditional

I'm so pleased with this completed project. This is a beautiful golf course home that simply needed a contemporary sprucing. We edited out all of the red and gold that was so typical of 80's decor and added a refreshing touch of blue and cream. As our base, we used a beautiful boucle carpet in a neutral tone that mimics sea grass, but is so much more durable. We also incorporated this couple's love of golf and clocks into this new more contemporary design. The result is a refreshed design that still reflects the taste and style of the homeowners.

Loving the blue and cream herringbone of these chairs.

The wood and glass coffee table as an airy touch to this living room.

The vignette above the sofa table incorporates treasured collectibles belonging to the homeowners.

The new mantle and built-in customize this space.

This custom wine rack makes fabulous use of otherwise dead space on the side of the fireplace.

The leather furniture in this family room is both comfortable and elegant. It sits against a backdrop of one of my favorite wallpapers by Phillip Jeffries. This grasscloth adds an elegance and texture to what was once a large and imposing wall. We framed beautiful golf prints from some of the homeowner's favorite golf courses to personalize this space.

This custom ottoman is one of my favorite piece to use. The padded side rails allow one to rest their feet, while the center trays provide the perfect spot to rest a drink.

Lilly Pulitzer For Target

Target's new Spring collection by Lilly Pulitzer is sure to be a gigantic hit. I've loved this bright, colorful, preppy line all of my life. The feeling is so Palm Beach and vacation chic. With everything from housewares to clothing available, this will be a great chance to pick up some items that might other wise be financially out of reach. The collection will launch April 19th with items ranging from a  few dollars to a few hundred dollars! Check out the Lilly Pulizter website if you're not familiar with their signature style.

Look for variations of this classic Lilly Pulitzer style at Target.
