House Tour: Swedish Blues

Neutrals are lovely but sometimes you just crave color! Saturated in a million shades of blue and layered with pattern, this Swedish home is a so inspiring. It is the home of photographer and creative Kristin Lagerqvist and her young family, and the spaces beautifully blend a fresh, casual aesthetic with lots of antique pieces. I especially love the use of gallery walls and bold wall papers. Just dreamy . . .

InstaTravels: Porto & Mallorca

One of the silver linings about living so far from home, is that almost anyplace is in the middle! Last week we meet our families in Porto, Portugal and Mallorca, Spain. It was such a wonderful week, filled with gorgeous architecture, beaches, food, scenery and family time. Feeling so grateful and inspired (and already missing these faces!) Here are few of my favorite moments. . .

Celeb Style: Mindy Kaling's NYC Pad!

I love sneak peaks into celeb's homes, and this amazing NYC apartment of Mindy Kaling was no exception! The home is both playful and sophisticated, mixing bold bursts of color and quirky art with clean lines and a modern sense of minimalism. White walls, simple window treatments and a limited the number of pieces with character, add up to a perfect combo of classic style and personal warmth!

Trend Spotting: Vibrant Window Trim

Why should window trim always be white? It might be an unusual choice, but opting for a dark or colorful trim paint can add instant charm and character to a room. And also lend architectural detail to a bland space. I especially adore black or charcoal trim for a bit of drama, but this dreamy mint above is pretty gorgous as well! Here is a little inspo in case you are considering taking the plunge . . .

Singapore Design: A Lively + Ladylike Tween Retreat

This week I was working on a fun but sophisticated bedroom for a sweet 12 year old here in Singapore. I love doing spaces for kids and letting the playful energy show, but we also wanted to be sure it was a room she would still love in a few years. My advice is to keep the main pieces, like the bed frame, desk and light fixture in a fresh yet classic style and let the accessories add the cheer! I hope she loves it as much as I do! 

For Singapore sources or design queries just drop me a note!

Spring Color Inspo: Blush

Pink is the new neutral? This spring season beautiful blush seems to be everywhere. While I am usually wary of pink when decorating spaces other than children's rooms, I really love the warmth and earthiness that blush can bring. The key is to select a dusty, subtle blush (my all time favorite paint color is Pink Ground by Farrow & Ball) and to balance the blush tones with a few dark accents in black, charcoal, ink blue or chocolate. Here are a few inspirations to prove that blush can be sophisticated. . .
