MIDNIGHT NAUTICAL

Browsing around today in my local Marshall’s I came across this beautiful candle lantern. It inspired me to illustrate on how I would decorate a bachelor pad’s bedroom.
20140116-212845.jpgThe store had two available which would be perfect for the space. Let me help paint the picture for you.
This room has warm neutral wall coloring. However to add a little more contrast I’ll add in some wainscoting and paint it. Below are some examples of what I have in mind.
20140116-225534.jpgThe picture above was a perfect find! The bottom wall color I would use exactly as is but in the bedroom. 20140116-225642.jpg This color swatch would be the wall paint. A few generic pictures would lay along the walls. Now here’s where the fun comes in. Those candle lanterns would be hung from a wrought iron hook above these (below pic) side tables by the bed.
20140118-102947.jpg The decorative throw pillows would be made of this fabric. It ties in from the actual ropes on the candle lantern.
20140118-103158.jpgThe bed covering would be displayed as a duvet cover. Again I’m taking some color from the walls and bringing it to the bed to tie the colors together.
20140118-105314.jpg Windows will be draped in the fabric shown below. I chose this because of the lines again reminding me the ties and knots to again pull together a nautical theme.

20140118-105938.jpgI love grommet hole drapes. Their easy to open and close. I love the pleating look it gives when open. So yes, just replace the fabric and you’ll have my design. The flooring is a dark stained hardwood as seen below with a area rug below the bed.
So now that you’ve read my visual design on a nautical bachelor pad. What do you think? Can you envision it?

Daily Find

It’s a rainy day here in southern CT. In my continue search for some seating for my friend S’s new office. I decided to check my favorite place for some inspirational finds! I found this modern chair. What attracted me to this was the lines and its simplicity.

20130508-132420.jpg The price for this is right and best of all the client is on board with this chair. Once it’s purchased I’ll give it a new coat of paint and reupholster the bottom cushion. I also found this GORGE large mirror that had some beautiful details in the framing around the mirror.

20130508-133015.jpgLast but certainly not least! I couldn’t take my eyes of this!

Currently it holds on top a record player which probably is holding records below for storage. I’d use this as a small bar. Where the record player sits. I’d use this space for the variety of alcohol bottles. To the left will display champaign, wine or martini glasses. Below will be storage for any other beverages/glasses. I’m so tempted to buy & flip this! Happy hump (Wednesday) day!

Pink For A Cure

Breast cancer awareness month

In honor of breast cancer. This month is all about pink and raising funds to help cure this deadly disease. So I’d like to share are all things pink.

Little Girl’s Room

Mirrored any and everything I’m loving. The lucite chair in the corner makes a great accent chair as it gives the illusion of more space with out actually taking up much. The copper dragonfly string lights give more attention to the iron mid-century anarchy headboard.

I’m soooo in love with these valances and matching pillows on the window bay.

Simply stated romantic with a touch of elegance.

In an all white room adding a punch of color goes a long way. I for one love the paired mirrors on the wall giving it some added dimension.

Thank your for viewing. Please spread the word about breast cancer awareness and be sure to get checked. Early detection is key to keeping yourself and the ones around you the most protected. Enjoy your long weekend and happy early Columbus day for all those that are off.
