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!

Suzanne Kasler’s Famous Pink Dining Room

sa7

Since I seem to be thinking pink in a big way, there is no better time to show the one pink dining room I love. Chances are, you have seen it before featured in her book or in design magazines. There is such a lovely balance in this room. The casual raffia chairs keep the room from being too fancy. The pink wall and the ceiling beams work well together. This is one of my faves and a great reminder that khaki and pink is a winning combination!

The new season of the hit TV show is just around the corner and this sexy Mad Men line from Estee Lauder is the saucy  side of the ’60s. The packaging and the soft colors will be hard to resist. Loving these fresh colors and let’s face it, a new lip or nail color is a great pick-me-up!

India’s Pink ~ My Inspiration

a131c3820af5131cca3a992e37a2ae6a

Several years ago, I saw India Hicks’s pink sofa and I knew that we were kindred spirits.  In my home, the white, gray and black color palette is softened throughout  with various pinks. I love it. Here are more photos (taken by Christine Martinez) from India’s home in the Bahamas showing her version of a very chic pink!  Now if we could just find out the exact pink paint she uses!
