One Room Challenge Spring 2016 :: Kick-Off

As some of you know, I moved last year to a house that needs a ton of work. It’s a 1940s traditional colonial style home and last fall I redesigned the foyer and staircase for the One Room Challenge (ORC). As an interior designer, I enjoyed the process from inspiration to completion – but of course I’m my toughest client, so it wasn’t always easy, breezy!

Recently, Linda of Calling it Home invited me back to participate in her One Room Challenge this spring. For those who may not know, the ORC is a collection of 20 bloggers that document the transformation of a room over the course of six weeks. Although the tight timeline adds a lot of pressure, I jumped at the chance to be part of this fabulous series again.

Even though our house has seemingly endless makeover needs including the kitchen, bathrooms and backyard patio, the room choice for the ORC was quite obvious – our master bathroom & walk-in closet. We selected the space mainly because we were battling several leaky faucets that couldn’t be repaired (too old) and our closets needed some serious organizational help. It’s a big undertaking for such a short amount of time, but I was up for the challenge!

Over the course of the next few weeks, I will be sharing my design process from inspiration to finishing touches. Each Wednesday, there will be a new blog post revealing the progress and you can also get sneak peeks via InstagramTwitter and Facebook. I hope you will follow my journey!

Here’s a look at the space before – starting with the master bath (which includes my closets) and leading to the walk-in closet for my hubby.

5 Faves :: Home Decor on Pinterest

We are in the planning cycle of designing a new kitchen and great room for our 1940s home. If all goes well, we will start construction this spring.

With so many decisions to be made for the renovation, I turn to Pinterest – my favorite destination for endless inspiration and a fabulous place to organize all of my ideas.

Here are a few of my most popular home decor pins from the last few weeks:

Navajo patterns. Feather artwork. Indoor cactus. I know you’ve spotted them too. Southwestern decor is trending, but with an fresh modern twist. Timeless Native American patterns have inspired a new generation of textiles (like the rug below from Domain), flooring (like the tile above from Curbly) and home decor products that are being incorporated in a variety of dwellings from urban to rural. The earthy desert palettes with pops of bright color here and there is perfect to incorporate with modern and transitional furnishings for a chic boho look. southwest modern decor #cactus #pinksouthwest desert chic // decor trends

San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Master Bathroom

Today I’m sharing another fabulous interior design from the 2015 San Francisco Decorator Showcase (open now through May 25th). Located just of the main staircase on the second floor, you’ll find the “En Vogue Salon” designed by Tineke Triggs and her team at Artistic Designs for Living. Inspired by the July 1966 Vogue Magazine cover, the master bathroom and make-up salon are nothing by glamorous.

Front and center, Triggs hangs a commissioned photograph by Danielle Mourning (courtesy of Stephanie Breitbard Fine Arts). Just below is an oval freestanding tub that sits on a custom stone floor (designed by Triggs) and is beautifully framed by dip-dyed linen ombre curtains. The hand formed brass and steel Palermo chandelier which hand just above the tub is an absolute head turner! Adjacent to the tub is a custom double vanity featuring period details such as the geometric hand-painted gold applique coupled with brass and lucite hardware. A luxurious chaise covered in an emerald velvet is a nod to the striking eye color found in the ’66 Vogue cover. A super groovy black and white piece hangs just above the sitting area. The shower with feathered herringbone marble tile bridges the master bathroom and dressing room space. The make-up salon walls are strikingly wrapped in Vogue Magazine covers (actually a fabric by James Malone Fabrics). Its the perfect space to prepare for an evening out!
