Trend Spotting: Modern Organic

Thursday, February 20, 2020

 This year I am loving modern organic spaces. I grew up in a very modern house, and while I love the clean lines of contemporary interiors, I think they are best when tempered by lots of warm layers and natural textures. Here is a bit of inspiration I have recently been filing away . . . .

As much as I love the cozy, cluttered warmth of the holidays, there is something so invigorating about the crisp new year! Here's a bit of fresh interior inspiration I have been pinning lately . . . white walls can still lead to layered, interesting spaces.

Singapore Design: Dark + Moody

Tuesday, August 28, 2018

I was thrilled when a client recently asked me for a 'dark and moody' master bedroom! He was imaging for rich, deep blue walls but was worried it would look to heavy. I love this look and when properly balanced with plenty of lighter elements, dark walls can create such a cozy and stylish space. 

Here are a few tips for making deep blue walls work:
+ opt for white or pale neutral bedding   
+ use art and light fixtures to break up the deep color on larger walls
+ chose a blue with green undertones or a dusty hue for a more sophisticated palette

For those of you in this part of the world, here are my Nippon paint picks!

Pretty City London

Friday, August 24, 2018

Earlier this summer we had an amazing family holiday in Europe and stopped over in London for a few days. It's always one of my favorite cities, so charming and lovely mix of old and new world style. Today I was just daydreaming via Pretty City London, one of my favorite Instagram accounts to follow. Stalking travel bloggers always makes me happy! Here are some images to help fuel your wanderlust . . . Any gorgous instagram accounts you follow for travel inspo?

Product Love: Rattan Pendants

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

Rattan and wicker pendants are popping up all over recently and I am happy to say it's a trend I am fully behind. I love the natural, organic texture of these woven rattan lights. They offer a chic but breezy alternative to metal or glass fixtures and are often a super affordable option. I have used this great Ikea Sinnerlig pendant in a two projects recently. Here is some more lovely rattan inspo! (and in case you are looking, scroll to the end to see my favorite retail picks).  

These above are actually Vietnamese rooster catchers which have been fitted into light fixtures - you can really see chickens along the road under these traditional enclosures! We did the same on a recent project here, my client carried them back on the plane :) Super cost efficient and such an impact.

Spring Refresh: Modern Canopy Beds

Wednesday, April 4, 2018

Growing up I adored my bed, it was a queen size 4 post bed painted in pastel hues, and I always felt like a grown up princess! I still love the architecture and drama canopy beds lend - but now with a decidedly more modern feel. Far from fussy, these streamlined beds can look amazing in contemporary or eclectic spaces and provide a structural element to balance the other soft elements of a bedroom. Here is some modern canopy inspiration and a retail round up of my favorites (just in case you are looking!).
