Prepare for love at first sight! The WAVE by Royal Botania is certainly a show stopper! Its unique and up-to-the-minute design, gives this “hammock” the illusion its floating. Can you imagine relaxing in this? The ultramodern WAVE has some serious poolside-worthy curves that everyone should get in on! Check it out:
Kitchens are one of my favorite areas of the home! Mainly because I love to cook but also because a nice kitchen is bliss! Like this one featured below, it is gorgeous!! The lantern style hanging lights, the granite counter tops, the detailed white cabinets and the beams in the ceiling(you can see them in the upper right hand corner). I’m a huge fan of homes that flaunt their beams! 🙂 It adds character and shows craftsmanship… But on to the good stuff! What really draws my attention in this room is the custom range hood and back splash. These are truly the center pieces of this kitchen!! Handcrafted and stunning, they bring dexterity and exceptional taste together, that can only be created by someone who is truly passionate about their work and your home. I am a huge fan of his work and actually lucky enough to have met the incredibly talented designer, Ara Mironyuk(www.artbyara.com), who created these pieces(and many, many more!) and they are spectacular!
As I was perusing through one of my FAVORITE sites, Pinterst, last night I came across this stunning home by Antoni Associates, associated with SAOTA. From around the world their designs are so fresh and cutting edge and in the most beautiful places! They incorporate unique and forward ideas such as, what I would call, “floating stairs” that come out of the wall and glowing bars, put together with sleek terraces with infinity pools, and their creative use of stucco, stone and wood leaves me wanting more! So much so, that I must share! 🙂 Take a look!:
Check out this staircase design by Alan Mascord Design Associates. This is not your average stair case. This is one sets the bar and is not afraid to stand out! In a few words: unique, contemporary, clean and tranquil.
Take a peek inside this beach-trendy, gorg home in Malibu I found on Homes.com – must share! What grabbed my attention about this home wasn’t only all the dark wood details, the light walls and the contrasting wood ceiling in the master bedroom. It was also the little pops of color in each room like in the dining room, the orange cushions and green plant. Or the blue vase in the master bedroom . Amazing!! What also caught my eye and something that I will always appreciate about this master bedroom(and you should too!!) is the fire place and french doors in the master bedroom! … Not to mention the view. But what would a Malibu house be with out the views and relaxing porches? 🙂
This home will be trending for a long time to come!
Color blocking for the home anyone? Either! This is such a modern and classic look, through and through, as you can see! What is really great about this timeless color scheme is that you can keep classic or add a little pop with something as simple as a couple red pillows…the ability to have an easy and quick change up. 🙂
