Bold Powder Room: Black, Silver and Coral Red

I’m loving this bold powder room. There’s nothing like a bold wallpaper in a tiny room. It doesn’t really make sense, but it obviously works wonders. This baby I believe is Graham & Brown’s Illusion wallpaper, but I couldn’t find this black and silver colorway.

GRAHAM & BROWN

Black and gold however, I had no trouble finding. Looks brown¬† to me, but the specifications reads black, so it’s probably just a bad color representation. Speaking of black and gold fretwork wallpaper, here’s another beauty:

The shiny metallic surface takes this wallpaper to another level. Too much of a good thing, or just right? You decide ;-)

Look for Less: Koi Wallpaper

August 20, 2011 in Asian (Chinoiserie), Bathroom, Bright, Brown, Look for Less, Natural, Orange, Powder Room, Wallpaper / Tiles / Murals

I’ve had a lot of questions about this koi wallpaper in the lovely powder room featured in this post. The wallpaper is obviously hand painted, which you can tell when there is no pattern repeat. I believe it’s from de Gournay (please correct me if I’m wrong), which means most of us can’t afford it.

*

 Luckily I came across a more affordable version on Wallpaper Direct. What do you think? Is this a good alternative, or does the pattern repeat ruin the charm?

Most of you have probably seen the beautiful home of Lisa Martensen already, but as I always say; revisiting a beautiful space never hurts ;)

Lisa is one half of the extremely talented design duo Martensen Jones. According to an interview she did with D Magazine, Lisa is quite the collector. That probably helps to explain her very interesting home. It’s full of beautiful objects she has collected from around the world, high end mixed with thrifts store gems. It’s layered and interesting, and edited to perfection.

Lisa confesses to be a huge fan of anything plaster. Just look at that marvelous stone table. I also adore the color palette in this dining room, kind of an understated boldness.

Even though most of the walls in her family room are covered in windows, Lisa still manages to display artwork by placing them in little easles.

Lisa sure knows how to decorate her bookcase, here displaying her books along with her collectibles. If you missed it, you can get a few tips on how to decorate your bookcase here ;)

Lisa’s bedroom is so beautiful and glamorous. Yet another proof that gray and beige can be mixed (see first proof here).

I love detail shots like these, don’t you? So much inspiration in the details.

I spy Jonathan Adler’s Greek Key wallpaper.

Lisa’s bathroom is exceptionally beautiful, with cream white walls and marble counter tops and hexagonal tiles (which I professed my love for in this earlier post).

The sconces screams luxury. They are designed by Eric Cohler, we covered them earlier here ;)

I can’t help thinking of Pottery Barn’s Bevel Mirror when I see Lisa’s beautiful vanity. Do you think it’s the same one?

As a wonderful surprise in her light and airy home, Lisa went wild with her powder room. I just love a bold powder room!!

The wallpaper she used is called Pauline and is available at Studio Printworks in many color options.

Last but not least, daughter India’s bedroom. Her walls are hand painted muralist Jerrod Foote. That is one lucky girl!

Love how Lisa incorporated these ceramic birds into the mural.

I’ve noticed the Jacqui Console and Desk popping up in everywhere lately. I particularly loved it in Meg Braff’s home office also.

Hope you enjoyed this little house tour, and be sure to check out D Magazine to read the great interview they did with Lisa, for more details!

Pulp Design Studios

February 18, 2011 in Bedroom, Classic, Glamorous, Gray, Hottest Designers, Living room, Modern, Powder Room, Silver

This cute little living room is designed by Pulp Design Studios. I love it when a room is decorated around a great piece of art, how could you better pay respect to such a fine element than by arranging everything around it?

*

The gray, maroon and green color palette is carried into the bedroom, with an addition of a vibrant plum (color of course).

*

The headboard is covered in a beautiful velvet damask fabric.

*

Now this is what I would call a gorgeous powder room! I have a huge thing for furniture with long tapered legs, it just looks so elegant. And the star pulls takes this sink console from gorgeousness to perfection. The damask wallpaper, mirror and sconces ain’t to shabby either (to say the least)!

*

A very intricate chandelier graces the ceiling of this lovely home office:

*

Which is decorated in a modest white and black palette. So classic yet dramatic.

*

And let’s top it of with this gorgeous bedroom. The walls and ceiling appears to be painted a light blue-gray color, a perfect backdrop to the rich brown woods and linens. Isn’t that bed spread fantastic?
