Five Favorites :: Fabulous Entryways

Entryways offer us first glimpses into a home. It’s where we welcome guests and in some cases store such things as coats, purses, keys  and mail.  Entryway design takes planning if you want to it to be both beautiful and functional, so I’ve rounded up a few fabulous entryways that do both.

Loving this elegant entryway by Erin Gates Design of Elements of Style. The linen wrapped dresser with nailhead detailing is a head turner!

Sarah Sherman Samuel of Smitten Studio (say that 5 times!) nails it here with modern and contemporary elements – console table, geometric mirror, stool and basket storage. Love!

Perhaps one of my favorite entryways of the bunch. This one I spotted on Pinterest – I was drawn it’s elegance and chinoiserie touches.

Speaking of chinoiserie touches, here’s another fabulous entryway by Chloe Warner via Lonny. It’s on the small side, but so chic and functional! Love the mix of masculine and feminine, pattern and color too.

Need more entryway design ideas?

happy decorating,

Beautiful Southern California Home Tour

It’s a new week and I’m thrilled to be sharing a beautiful project by Corona del Mar, California-based interior designer, Ohara Davies-Gaetano. The emerging designer (recently published in Veranda) helped a family remodel and settle into their new Newport Beach home (downsizing from their previous one in Virginia). Ohara created an inviting, comfortable, yet elegant space reflective of her clients’ casual lifestyle. She also wanted a very open feeling where all areas of the house seamlessly flow into the next. Because the home was much smaller than what the owners were used to, each room had to serve its purpose and be functional. European antiques found throughout the home add small but elegant touches, which epitomize Ohara’s passion for mixing a little old with the new. I also love how her design  embraces the gorgeous light, landscape and outdoor living Southern California is known for.

Pretty Pink Roses :: The Bouqs Company

Flowers bring a fresh, natural beauty to any space. Through color, size and texture floral arrangements are a terrific decor accessory to help set a room’s mood. So when Bouqs, the premium online floral delivery service asked if I’d like to review a bouquet for myself, it was a no-brainer. I selected a dozen long stem pink roses called Sweetness. Sweet indeed! Like most of Bouqs flowers, they were grown at the foot of a mineral rich volcano in South America and arrive a few days later at my front door.

Here are the pretty pink roses in my daughter’s new flamingo room. So simple, elegant and sweet. And boy are these roses huge and long-lasting. Here’s an instagram of them a few days later. Amazing.

Another difference that makes Bouqs special? They cut flowers to order and avoid a lot of waste. In addition, Bouqs only sources from eco-friendly, sustainable farms that respect the environment and their workers. Love this!

premium pink roses from thebouqs.comSending beautiful flowers is a great way to let your loved ones know you are thinking of them and with Bouqs‘ hassle-free concierge service you’ll never forget a birthday, anniversary or special date again. Brilliant!

*disclosure: Bouqs is an affiliate of Simplified Bee, however all opinions are my own (as always)

Pinterest :: 5 Favorites

Hello Monday! The start of a new week can be both refreshing and overwhelming. This week is loaded with back-to-school planning, client projects and wrapping up our remodel (which I’m hoping to share more pix of  soon!). So, I’m a bit more overwhelmed than I’d like.

To start the week off on an inspiring note, I’m sharing a few of my favorite pins on Pinterest as of late.
