GPS, No … Maps, Yes!!!

Using maps as art has long been a design staple. The beauty is in the ease of getting the look. Search eBay for old maps from where you have lived, vacationed or are currently living. Collect and frame them nicely and you have personal artwork for your home. I also love map wallpaper. You can’t help but stop and look at it. In a world of GPS, don’t forget how amazing a map really is!

and leave it to the fabulous editors at Martha Stewart to turn recycled maps into wrapping paper. How great is that?

Fresh Start

Wouldn’t it be nice to just start fresh? Clean slate. White walls and dreamy floors like these? I would still add in all the things I love and make the space my own but wouldn’t it be nice to just have a clean slate!

A Room to Love

lonny-all-w-hite-e1357837975123

I am loving this fresh clean bedroom. The simple details of the molding, the layers of white and the minimal furniture make this room a treat at the end of a busy day. All-white bedrooms may seem bland to some, but for me it is the perfect way to begin and end each day!

A Little Faux Bamboo Love

bluebambooarmoire__35765.1363391241.450.450

What can I say, I never get tired of faux bamboo. When done right, a little hit can add real style to a room! This antique faux bamboo armoire from Furbish Studio is amazing! Pieces like this do not appear every day. I would love to see this worked into a white and black kitchen. It could easily serve as a great desk or bar area. Not to mention this would be fabulous in a bedroom!

Jonathan Adler is the King of Palm Beach chic and always has the best selection of bamboo.  I love the bright green wallpaper. You can have a lot of fun with this.

What better way to give an old piece a new vibe than to change the hardware. I absolutely love these gold bamboo cabinet pulls. In a kitchen or bathroom they’d be unexpected and fantastic!

How about a bright and cheerful bamboo chandelier? In the right spot, this could be outstanding. Shades of Light has them in a bunch of colors. I love this color … could look great!!!

Lightening Up Your Bedroom

T_WithoutZoom

I love bedrooms that are light and airy. As the seasons change, you too can make a few alterations to take your bedroom into the warm weather. First, the washed linen bedding from Garnet Hill is the place to start. Nothing says summer like linen and these sheets are lovely (the white are my favorite). Keep the decorative pillows to a minimum as these linens are all you need. Here are a few more warm weather inspired items to lighten up your bedroom.

You see a bar cart? I see a bedside table! Open and airy this rattan cart from Serena and Lilly is a nice alternative to a wood side table.

Simple curvy  bedside table lamps like these from Circa Lighting are the perfect choice.

Small Space Chic

I love this bathroom. Small, chic and a fantastic use of space. The light color palette. The classic choice of tile (subway and black and white mosaic) create a seamless space. Light and airy. If you have a small bathroom and are renovating, this is an amazing example on how to do it right!

The Friday Find ~ 22 March

vintagepinkoushak__58922.1363274684.450.450

I can’t resist ending this week of celebrating my favorite color with a vintage pink Oushak rug from Furbish. The possibilities are limitless. This rug could go anywhere but I will say it would sing in a white room where the furniture is simple and the rug can shine!
