This elegant blue and white table vignette for Legends of la Cienega 2014 designed by Mark D. Sikes struck a cord with me. I’m drawn to the layered patterns, chinoiserie touches and brilliant blues. The timeless color palette is on trend again and here are a few home décor favorites I’ve spotted recently:

Indoor Plant Spotlight :: Orchids

potted orchid atop stacked booksLive houseplants are essential home accessories that add life to a space. A personal favorite is the orchid. With over 20,000 known species, the orchid is exotic, colorful and often fragrant. Orchids look fabulous anywhere including in an entryway, bathroom or on a coffee table. Here are a few great examples of interiors featuring orchids:

Friday Finds :: 5 Favorites

It took me a couple days to get back into the swing of things around here. But we are back to our routine with the kids back at school and me back to work. Fortunately, I love what I do, so it wasn’t that hard to get motivated again. Speaking of motivating, I’ve rounded up five favorite articles and images I came across this week – had to share them with you!

Design Crush :: Bradshaw Orrell Interiors

The clean, light and airy home designed by Bradshaw Orrell Interiors stopped me in my tracks. Featured in Traditional Home, the Greensboro, North Carolina house was recently transformed for a newlywed couple relocating to the south from Manhattan. Orrell describes how the couple’s exquisite artwork, heirloom antiques and natural light played a crucial role in the overall design. In addition, Orrell, a former furniture designer for Niermann Weeks and Baker, incorporated his own sleek custom-designed furniture. The result is fresh, elegant and has a new traditional flare. Simply stunning as you will see.

How cute is the bedroom from their baby girl, Elle. The soft lavender chinoiserie wallpaper is a personal fave!
