Holiday House Hamptons 2014 :: My Faves

Earlier this summer, Holiday House Hamptons at Watchcase in Sag Harbor opened its doors to the public. Showcasing eighteen talented interior designers, the prestigious design showhouse combines two of founder, Iris Dankner’s passions: interior design and fundraising for breast cancer research. This year Holiday House partnered with Hamptons Cottages and Gardens (HC&G) to deliver an inspiring design house which is actually a 19th century brick factory that’s now being converted into luxury condos. The grand industrial space set the stage for each designer to create a space themed around a holiday or special moment in their life. Here’s a look at some of my favorite spaces.

Kitchen Design Crush

A kitchen doesn’t have to be massive to be functional and beautiful. This all white kitchen designed by Jute Home is a perfect example. With the custom cabinetry well planned out, the space has room to accommodate gourmet appliances and touches. Although not enough room for an island, a peninsula does the job of housing the under-mount sink and barstools for three.

Here you can get a better look at the chic marble chevron backsplash and all white countertops (most likely a quartz). Love the open shelving too. They help break up the space visually.

 Drinking tea is a daily ritual for me, so I love this last image. :)

Isn’t’ this a lovely designed kitchen? And if Jute Home sounds familiar, it might be because  Simplified Bee featured their lovely family kitchen for the San Francisco Showcase.

Flamingo Decor Frenzy

As part of my home’s expansion project, I’ve been designing a few rooms for my own family. One is a bedroom for my little one that will feature flamingos. This process has been a lot of fun and has me scouting flamingo decor. There is a lot of cheesy flamingo stuff  and it’s easy to go overboard with the theme, so I’ve narrowed down a few of my favorite here.

flamingo photography - the animal print shop

One way to incorporate flamingos in your decor is through artwork. This photo taken by Sharon Montrose captures a solo flamingo with wings outstretched. It’s a little a typical of the iconic one legged stance that flamingos are known for. Perhaps that’s why I like it so much.

In this living room by Sarah or Smitten Studio, another flamingo photo by Sharon is featured above mid-century modern inspired console. Love!

Flamingo Mingle Art - Cozamia

However, I still adore this Flamingo Mingle print by Cozamia.

Furbish Studio features one of my favorite flamingo wallpapers in a bedroom vignette.

The flamingo wallpaper by Cole & Sons is available in a lovely toned-down color palette at Anthropologie. It would be so much fun in a powder room.

pink flamingo sugar cookies

Not home decor, but I’ve noticed that flamingo party themes are trending too. Loved this sweet flamingo 1st birthday party for Penny. How cute are these sugar cookies?

happy decorating,

Design Crush :: Lulu DK

LuLu DK butterfly table runner and pink peonies // fiesta ideas

A few years ago a butterfly fabric by Lulu deKwaitkowski for Schumacher inspired the color palette and theme for a family party. I spotted the playful pattern in another textile of Lulu’s that was used to cover walls. It’s hard to see from the image below, but the fabric is a gorgeous linen and the butterflies are in shades of blue with gold metallic accents. It is quite striking.

The image, found on Lulu’s blog reminded of how much I love her aesthetic – colorful, chic and always inviting. Her sophisticated, yet relaxed style is a result of her polar upbringing in bustling Manhattan and the laid-back beach lifestyle of the Hamptons and Bahamas. It’s most apparent in her LULU DK collections of fabrics, rugs, bedding, artwork and other decor items.

Lulu always hand draws and paints her motifs and patterns before they are transformed into beautiful textiles. Her artwork is stunning!

Recently, Lulu launched a line of adorable wall decals. My fave are the butterflies. So cute for a baby’s nursery, don’t you think?

I’ve never been a tattoo girl, but Lulu’s new metallic jewelry tattoos are so chic. Available in gold, silver or black the tattoos will last about 4 days in and out of the water. I just might have to try them out this summer!

happy decorating,
