I just had to share these amazing pillows with you I designed for my client’s Family Room.  I can’t wait to get pictures of them in the actual room, but isn’t this fabric so cool?

In 4 days, I am going to Phoenix, AZ to see my family!  I will see my Dad’s whole side of the family and let me tell you, its been a while.  I think this will be the first time in…easily 10 years that “the Triplets” will all be together in AZ and we cannot wait to surprise my 101 year old Grandma!  (She has NO idea we are coming.)

So anyway, to get even more excited for my trip, here are some totally cool Southwestern inspired interiors.

What I really love about this decor is that it reflects the natural environment and heritage of the area.  “Flat roofs, open floor plans and extensive courtyards and gardens are hallmarks of a Southwestern home” (San Francisco Chronicle).

I have this amazing client who just moved to DC from Jordan!  He owns a cupcake shop in Jordan and plans to open up a branch here in DC too!  … and you all know how much I love cupcakes, I even posted about it here!  Once its open (hopefully this year!), I will definitely share pictures.

Anyway, Fadi contacted me while still living over seas and we pulled this gorgeous design together through tons of phone calls and emails.  Considering we were designing for a space neither of us had actually seen yet, it couldn’t have turned out more perfect!

This bright, cheerful, and elegant room reflects his personality perfectly!  What cupcake flavor would I call this?… Definitely not vanilla.

Again, Ethan Allen has furnished the Dream Home House, this gorgeous house is in Charleston, SC.

What do you think about the kitchen ceiling paint color?  With ceilings this high, I think it totally rocks!

I just love the fun and vibrant color scheme that is pulled throughout the whole entire house!  I have a feeling that painted furniture and this aqua blue and lime green scheme will make a comeback this year (yes, I do still know that the Pantone color of the year is emerald green).

All of the accents are so cute!  And almost all are from Ethan Allen.

I recently had a client come to me who needs help designing the family room in her new condo.  Kim has just turned 28, started a new government job, and feels like it is finally time to buy some “big girl furniture” and to get rid of the ol’ Ikea and college hand-me-down junk.

Designed by Julien Macdonald for Graham & Brown

I decided to post about this project because Kim and I have a very similar aesthetic and I really connected with what she has envisioned- “mature”, “sophisticated”, and “elegant” were the three words she said when I asked her to describe what she had envisioned.  In other words, she likes a feminine yet refined look with a modern twist.

(I want to point out that she did not want the TV to be the focal point in the room.)

I just love taking traditional pieces but updating them with a modern and graphic fabric and bold paint!

I achieved this look by combining clean modern pieces and dark woods with accents (like the floor lamp) that have a more organic shape.

I posted recently about a collection of some gorgeous grey pillows; a very affordable and easy way to change up your room’s design and color scheme!  One more way to change up the color and texture in a room is the rug!!

Source: Arhaus

A little tip when selecting the right size for the room- the front two legs of all the main pieces of furniture need to be resting on the rug!  This way, the pieces all feel grounded and the space is defined as a seating area, dining area, sleeping area, etc… get it?

A room that either lacks a rug or has one that is too small can have a feeling of chaos, that all the pieces of furniture are just floating around the room.  The majority of the time, you will want an 8’x10′ rug for the space.  See my diagrams below for ideas. 

Here is another collection of some beautiful and hip grey rugs for inspiration! And of course, if you need help designing your own space, contact me!
