classic clue & white decor // mark d. sikes

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:

Bold & Bright :: Miami Beach Apartment Tour

Recently House Beautiful toured the colorful Miami Beach apartment of interior designer, Robert Passal (loved his master bedroom for the Hampton Designer Showhouse in 2012). The mix of modern and traditional used throughout is a personal fave as well as the classic blue and white color palette that flows in both indoors and out. Passal is a master at combining pattern, texture and color. Take a look and I think you’ll agree!

To get just the right watery effect, he even paints the door in a bright blue car paint. What? yep.

Love the combo of pattern and color in this image. The Louis XVI–style chair upholstered in an African batik fabric looks amazing paired with the stunning swirl painting by Henrique Oliveira.

Love the clean, modern lines in the kitchen and the pops of bright color.

Passal mixes artwork and accessories beautifully here in the apartment’s entry and creates a fun, unexpected work area. The modern Tom Dixon chair is a personal fave!

In this bedroom, Passal covers the walls in a traditional blue and white toile, features an elegant blue velvet bed and adds a fun green accent with bed linens.

In the bathroom, square marble tiles cover both the walls and floor. Love the painting hung above the tub. So daring!

In the master bedroom, matchstick blinds are layered with ceiling to floor panel drapery in Quadrille’s Nomad pattern. They frame the sliding door beautifully.

Covered in gorgeous shimmery blue fabric, this powder room is a head turner.

And last, but not least, the outdoor patio which features traditional teak seating with blue and white cushions. It’s paired with a modern white Saarinen table by Knoll. Love!

I’m also thrilled to be over at Erin’s House of Turquoise today talking about my playroom + guest bedroom design project. More beautiful bright color!

happy decorating,

Design Crush :: Black & Spiro Interior Design

Sometimes I run across a portfolio of an interior designer that stops me in my tracks. The work of Australian designer, Anna Spiro of Black & Spiro Interior Design made me do just that. Each of her residential projects are filled with such wonderful layers, color and life. I’m sharing some of my favorite images from her newly designed website, but you will have to drop by to see all of her gorgeous portfolio. You will love!
