Designer Crush :: Megan Tagliaferri

Known for her glitzy hotel and casino interiors in Vegas, Megan Tagliaferri of FLO Design Studio describes her own personal aesthetic as “California mod spiritual.” In her Belmont Shores of Long Beach home, she blends a mix of earthy, yet glamorous boho style. Tagliaferri brilliantly layers rich patterns throughout using designer wallcoverings, Moroccan textiles and vintage furnishings. Although high glam, the rooms are cozy, inviting and laid-back. It’s the perfect interior for the relaxed SoCal waterfront lifestyle Tagliaferri and her family were seeking. Take a peek!

5 Favorites :: Wallpapered Powder Rooms

You know I’m a huge fan of wallpaper and am thrilled that it’s made a comeback! One of my favorite spaces to wallpaper is the powder room or half bath. The color, texture and pattern can add so much character and style to the small space. But let me be clear – I hesitate to have full bathrooms papered because of the moisture showers/baths produce. Eventually the seams of even the best papered bathroom will start to come up. So if you love the look of wallpapered bathrooms, my advice is to stick with the powder room (although some of the examples below are of full bathrooms).

Here’s a round-up of five fave baths featuring wallpaper:

Do you love the look of wallpapered powder rooms?

happy decorating!

Friday Find :: Schumacher 125th Anniversary

Schumacher turns 125! In celebration, the legendary American textile company is pulling from its archives some of its most iconic patterns and reinterpreting them for today. Schumacher’s 125th Anniversary collection consists of a wide variety of patterns that span different influences, periods, and styles. It’s fabulous and I can’t pick a favorite, but have narrowed a few to share for this week’s Friday Find:

citrus garden // schumacher fabric #citrus #fabric

Citrus Garden – Based on an archival botanical pattern that acclaimed midcentury architect Josef Frank designed for the house in 1947

Flame Stitch // Schumacher Fabrics #blue

Valkyrie Flame Stitch – First introduced in 1972, this classic motif traces its roots to 15th century central Europe

Shengyou Toile in indigo // Schumacher 125 Anniversary Fabrics #chinoiserie

Shengyou Toile – Hand drawn toile based on an 18th-century Oberkampf document by Jean-Baptiste Pillement, a court painter to Marie Antoinette

Indian Arbre Fabric // Schumacher 125th Anniversary Collection #textiles #blue

Indian Arbre – Featuring the timeless tree of life pattern, this hand-painted fabric is inspired by traditional Indian palampore that was first introduced to Europe in the 17th century

Congratulations Schumacher and here’s to 125 more fabulous years!
