Design Reveal :: Black and White Powder Room

One of the spaces that was renovated during our last construction project was the powder room. It sits toward the from of the house and is in parallel with the staircase – making the room long and narrow. It has been decorated several times since 1940 and the last being in the late 60s. The blue toilet and sink coordinated with the wallpaper which featured cherubs. Gold wall sconces with crystals flanked a mirror that was removed before we bought the home. Shear drapery that was full of dust covered a large window. All of it needed to go.

The space was completely gutted and re-plumbed. From head to toe the room was transformed into a light and airy space. Check it out now…

The wallpaper – Pajarita (black) by Laundry Studio for Hygge & West features whimsical birds and was my first design selection for the bathroom. The delicate, yet energetic pattern was inspired by the various murals of birds seen throughout Mexico City. I also love that birds symbolize freedom. Black concrete hexagon tiles and a steel mirror were paired with the wallpaper. To flank the mirror, I selected understated, yet classic wall sconces. A top-down Roman shade in white match-stick was selected to bring in the light and provide privacy. The black and white ju ju hat hanging above the toilet is just plain fun and a nod to the birds. The blue sink was the perfect scale for the room, so I had it re-painted in white to match the new toilet by Toto. The faucet hardware needed to be replaced, but was able to reuse the original toilet paper and towel rack hardware.

Friday Finds :: Feather Patterns in Home Decor

One trend that has taken flight is the use of feathers and feather patterns in home decor. Whether real, drawn or manufactured, they add an exotic feel to any space and are being featured in a wide variety of home decor items like rugs, lighting and wallpaper. I personally love the look.

Kelley Moore’s San Francisco Flat

I’ve mentioned before that through blogging I have met the most amazing people. One such person is Kelley Moore. Kelly’s a designer, party planner and lifestyle guru. Her amazing career has had her on the go. You may have seen her on Rachel Ray, The Nate Berkus Show or even her own show, Moore to Life in Seattle!  Recently she moved to San Francisco to be the Home and Lifestyle Anchor at Joyus. Do you remember when I participated in Joyus’ designer challenge? Through the experience Kelley and I became friends. I’m telling you, she is an amazing person. Love her!

I was thrilled to see Kelley’s new San Francisco flat that she designed so beautifully featured in Rue Magazine’s October issue. It’s a home that inviting and has a wonderfully curated feel. Kelley also brilliantly blends pattern, textures and bold color (even red). Here’s a peek at the stunning interior:
