Decorating Project: Holland Hill Calming Master

I was just revisiting a post from a few months ago about creating a lovely layered space using neutral hues and it brought to mind this peaceful master bedroom I completed a while back here in Singapore! We aimed to create a tranquil but inviting space, using loads of whites and creams with just a few accents of warm colors where needed. Many different textures and finishes also work together to liven up the room and create visual interest. See, beige does not have to be boring! 

And I am very excited to say that this lovely client has moved into a bigger home and we are working together again :) 

A special thank you to the very talented Claire of Fellow Fellow for the gorgeous photography!

He's Arrived!

Sorry for blogging silence of late but I am thrilled to say it's due to the arrival of our little boy! He arrived in a hurry on 8.8.14 here in Singapore and we are already so in love! Here is a quick peak at his nursery {which is certainly a work in progress!} but which I had so much fun putting together. 

Hope all of you are having a week as beautiful and busy as we are!  

Baby W at one week - life is exhausting as a baby!

House Tour: Nantucket Updated!

In honor of the long Memorial Day weekend in the States and the official kick off to summer, I had to share this amazing updated beach house by Jeffery Alan MarksThere are a lot of beautiful beach homes but it's not often I spot one as fresh and unexpected as this Nantucket beauty. I love the worn vintage pieces layered against the cool, white crispness of the interior architecture. The decor nods to traditional New England seaside home but feels so modern as well - no fussy sea shell collections here! I especially like the use of warm reds, turquoise, and lots of black, white and gray to balance the classic beach blues. Honestly, I could move right in! Any details you love?

Happy Memorial Day or just happy beginning to summer!

Trend Spotting: Concrete Countertops

I am working on a few kitchen re-designs at the moment and while I adore the classic beauty of marble or honed granite countertops, I am recently loving all of the fantastic concrete counters I see popping up! I really like the industrial, rustic vibe they lend and concrete can be a cost effective, easy to customize, and unexpected alternative. The surface is porous but when properly sealed it can wear really well! It's not for someone who wants a perfectly uniform surface but it does offer lovely texture and variation. I especially like the juxtaposition of concrete with more organic finishes like natural wood or hand made tiles. Here are a few of my favorite examples of concrete at work. . .

Have you had any experience with concrete counters?

If you are handy, check out Little Green Notebook's very detailed DIY here! And by the way her entire laundry room re-do is completely amazing!!!

Springtime Travels & Beautiful Branches!

Hi Everyone, I'm back! 

So sorry for my silence, I was lucky enough to be traveling around the US seeing family and best friends and was just too much of a busy bee to check in! I missed my husband and design work here in Singapore terribly but loved every moment in the states, especially my last week soaking up the lovely spring time weather in NYC. I was just in time to catch the cherry blossoms and loved seeing large arrangements of flowering branches in loads of restaurants and shops - such a classic and naturally beautiful look! Plus, flowering branches will last weeks longer than cut blooms. Here are a few of my favorite inspirations. . . .

Happy Spring!
