My guest bedroom makeover

Posted on Tue, 8 Nov 2016 by KiM

It has been a while since I got around to decorating my guest bedroom and I finally found some time to snap some photos so I can share it with you. This room is annoyingly small (10’x8.5′) so it fits nothing really but our old queen size bed and a couple of small furniture items. I am tempted to do what the next door neighbours did and rip out the wall between it and the master bedroom and make an ensuite….maybe one day when I win the lottery. In the meantime if anyone wants to stay over, we have a proper bedroom setup which we did not have in our tiny previous 2 bedroom (1 bedroom dressing room/closet) house. As for the decor, after working on most of the other rooms in the house I came to realize that I had a bunch of things I had carted back with me from one of my many winter vacations in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico that did not have homes. Thus resulting in this Mexican theme space! At the end of the post I will list sources, but just about all of it are Mexico mementos. This room was a great excuse to try one of the new Farrow & ball colours – Inchyra Blue which I used on the ceiling and opposing walls to create a canopy effect. I LOVE this incredible blue/teal/grey shade and how cocooning painting those 3 walls are without going dark all over (I have enough dark rooms in this house already). I highly recommend this colour for anyone looking for something unique that is dark but not too dark. And as I have come to expect from F&B colours, it has chameleon tendencies and changes drastically depending on the amount of light.  

I had to share a photo of the incredible patterns this light makes when it’s on. So pretty!!

Bedroom envy

Posted on Wed, 7 Sep 2016 by KiM

I have a bad case of bedroom envy with this absolutely stunning space by Paloma Contreras. It was a bedroom/terrace combo she designed for the 2016 Traditional Home Southern Style Now showhouse in New Orleans. The room was designed around a stunning, custom-made deGournay wallpaper featuring 12 carat white gold and aluminum hand-gilding on a silk background. OH LA LA!!! 

Simple beauty

A simple palette of whites and washed out sea glass hues layered with textures and natural finishes. A comfortable elegance, a restrained luxury, tranquil, uncomplicated. A simple beauty. Laffite’s Pointe by Houston, Texas based interior designer Ginger Barber.

The perfect prescription

Posted on Wed, 10 Aug 2016 by midcenturyjo

 

The symptoms of Hump Day are a general malaise, increasing tiredness, a reduction in mental agility and profound attitude changes. But I have the perfect prescription to cure your mid week blues. It involves a computer screen, a few minutes stolen from your working day and a daydream about an escape to a Sydney beach house with stunning ocean views. Avalon Lighthouse via Contemporary Hotels.
