One Room Challenge Fall 2015 :: Favorites

Whew! I’m quite relieved that the One Room Challenge (although a blast!) is behind us. The process and experience was really amazing, but exhausting. I’m so thankful to have worked with Linda from Calling it Home who created it all and with the generous event sponsors including, Bassett Mirror, BellacorDecoratorsBest, Farrow & BallLowes, Mark & Graham, Minted, and oomph. Thanks so much!

A huge thank you to you, my readers. I’ve been overwhelmed by the supportive and loving comments, emails, and thumbs up you’ve sent my way. Many thanks!!!

Oh, did you have a chance to take a look at the other 19 designers and bloggers that participated in the challenge? If so, were you blown away by the talent and gorgeous designs too? Here are a few of my favorite ORC transformations…
traditional + rustic boy's bedroom // design by a thoughtful place // via @simplifiedbee

I fell head-over-heals for Courtney’s design of her little boy’s bedroom. The traditional and rustic mix is fabulous. The reclaimed wood wall, handmade desk and pops of navy are just right. This room has lots of sentimental touches too which make the space all the more special.

Interior Designer, Naomi of Design Manifest pulled of a not so small feat for her One Room Challenge. It was really a One Condo Challenge! There are so many fabulous design details throughout, but my favorite is her small entryway which she covered in grasscloth, had a custom table made and hung a stunning mirror.

I’ve had my eye on the gorgeous silver palm tree pattern wallpaper for sometime, so I was thrilled to see Sue of The Zhush use it in her bathroom design. Her use of brass in the fixtures and hex mirror are spot on too. Love it!

Vanessa Francis of Decor Happy designed a wonderful master bedroom retreat. I am especially smitten with her walk-in closet design and how she backed the open shelving in a floral wallpaper. Stylish organization – you know I love it!

Nursery designs are personal favorites of mine and so naturally I adored the sweet lavender room for Megan’s baby-girl-to-be. Working with designer Sita Montgomery, Megan created a space layered in color, texture and pattern. The room actually started out a neutral nursery, but once baby girl was announced the room took on a more feminine feel.

Isn’t this bedroom design by Mallory of Style Your Senses so serene? It’s just about the same color palette I’ve used in my own bedroom! I’m loving the campaign dressers and chinoiserie mirrors flanking the cozy upholstered bed. Fabulous!

Cassie of Hi Sugarplum! transformed her living room into an inviting, colorful and sophisticated space. She collaborated with Kristin of the Hunted Interior for the overall design. I love the layers in this room the most. Checks, animal and abstract patterns work brilliantly together. And that built-in in navy high gloss is brilliant.

Another fabulous living room design for the One Room Challenge was by TV host, author and lifestyle expert, Kimberly Schlegal Whitman. Her English Countryside inspired living room for her family’s ranch is quite a treat! I’m particularly loving this corner with leather green chair, brass & glass bar and buffalo check drapery.

San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015 :: Sneak Peek

This year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase is a beautiful Elizabethan-style home designed by iconic architect Julia Morgan (notable works include the legendary Hearst Castle and became the first woman to be awarded the American Institute of Architects’ Gold Medal). The residence located on Jackson street in the prestigious Presidio Heights neighborhood, was completed in 1917 for $20,000 for Abraham Rosenberg, the “Dried Fruit King” and his wife, Alice.

In the last few months, thirty-eight Bay Area interior designers have transformed the six bedroom, eight bath home for the San Francisco University High School’s 38th annual Decorator Showcase. Gorgeous light fixtures, exquisite furnishings and extraordinary wallcoverings had me visiting spaces more than once on my tour. Here’s a sneak peek of the showcase:

Shades of Gray Home Decor

From charcoal to slate, cadet to pewter, smoky to mousy. The many shades of gray is quite vast, sophisticated and yet neutralizing. A mixture of black and white, the trending color has been hitting the fashion runways, surfaces in our homes and the pages of a very popular book (need I say more). Over the past couple years more and more of my clients have wanted to paint central living areas in soft shades of gray, cover counters in gray marble or stain cabinetry in rich gray tones. It’s a trend I personally love and I don’t see slowing down anytime soon.

To give you an idea of the range of shades and uses gray can offer, I’ve rounded up several inspiring images.
