Bold & Bright :: Miami Beach Apartment Tour

Recently House Beautiful toured the colorful Miami Beach apartment of interior designer, Robert Passal (loved his master bedroom for the Hampton Designer Showhouse in 2012). The mix of modern and traditional used throughout is a personal fave as well as the classic blue and white color palette that flows in both indoors and out. Passal is a master at combining pattern, texture and color. Take a look and I think you’ll agree!

To get just the right watery effect, he even paints the door in a bright blue car paint. What? yep.

Love the combo of pattern and color in this image. The Louis XVI–style chair upholstered in an African batik fabric looks amazing paired with the stunning swirl painting by Henrique Oliveira.

Love the clean, modern lines in the kitchen and the pops of bright color.

Passal mixes artwork and accessories beautifully here in the apartment’s entry and creates a fun, unexpected work area. The modern Tom Dixon chair is a personal fave!

In this bedroom, Passal covers the walls in a traditional blue and white toile, features an elegant blue velvet bed and adds a fun green accent with bed linens.

In the bathroom, square marble tiles cover both the walls and floor. Love the painting hung above the tub. So daring!

In the master bedroom, matchstick blinds are layered with ceiling to floor panel drapery in Quadrille’s Nomad pattern. They frame the sliding door beautifully.

Covered in gorgeous shimmery blue fabric, this powder room is a head turner.

And last, but not least, the outdoor patio which features traditional teak seating with blue and white cushions. It’s paired with a modern white Saarinen table by Knoll. Love!

I’m also thrilled to be over at Erin’s House of Turquoise today talking about my playroom + guest bedroom design project. More beautiful bright color!

happy decorating,

Pastel Easter & Spring Inspiration

It’s only a few days away, so wanted to pass along some inspiring Easter ideas courtesy of Ikea. A soft pastel color palette is always a great direction for an Easter tablescape. This one created by Ikea features ARV dinnerware in pink and white has a simple and rustic look, but it also expresses a soft touch with the wave-shaped edge.

In addition to the setting the table, I also love the idea of hanging seasonal art prints and graphic posters like this message of springtime! A different and nice way to display prints is to use a pant hanger like seen below.

As you transition your wardrobe from winter to spring, it a great time to give your closet a little makeover. One way is to unify the look of your hangers. Love these painted in springtime pastels too!

happy day,

cristin

Friday Find :: Snake Watercolor Art Prints

snake watercolor artwork

I know, snakes in the house aren’t typically a good idea, but I’m loving this slithery collection by Sarah B. Martinez. The watercolor snake art prints as a series or alone would add a playful pop of color to any room in the home. Not to mention great conversation pieces!

Happy Friday!

Serena & Lily Beach Market

Have you heard? Serena & Lily recently opened a traditional brick and mortar flagship store in the Hamptons! Although I haven’t seen it in person (dying to though!), the 3,200 square foot open floor-plan store with white crisp walls is the perfect backdrop for the brand’s fresh California style. Serena & Lily’s signature bedding, custom upholstery, statement artwork and outdoor collection are just some of the many items on the floor. It appears as if you are walking through a photo-shoots for an upcoming S&L catalog.
