Newlywed Chic - not your typical starter home...

I don't know about you but when I got hitched I had a major challenge blending my style (lots of color and funky furnishings) with my husbands classic (and boring beige) preferences.  We both had lots of hand-me-down furniture and our look was eclectic and that wasn't by choice.  
Luckily for Claiborne Swanson Frank, she found a man with a plan and a uber-chic mother.  And, apparently, a very big budget to design the couple's first home together as they walked toward wedded bliss...

I spy lots of Madeline in this home!

Happy Halloween!

Hope you have a "spooktacular" Halloween!!

By the way, I made these pumpkin rice crispy treats (a Pinterest inspiration).  They came out really cute and were a big hit.  A new fall/Halloween holiday staple.  

If I were more ambitious I would have done these...
So cute!

Enjoy your sugar high!!

Dark Interiors: Cozy, Sexy, Chic

After my last post mentioning a Dark 'n' Stormy I started thinking of all things dark in the home.  When the cooler air hits I suddenly want to take away all my light and bright and hole up in a dark and cozy spot.  I truly need a summer and winter home to deal with my multiple seasonal personalities.  The peacock/teal wall color in this living room makes me happy.  It probably would all year!

One of my favorite entry vignettes.

Such a sexy but cozy space.

I clearly have a thing for gray cabinets.

I'd mix my gray cabinets with an island of wood cabinets like these.  GORGEOUS!!

Exposed brick left un-painted with oriental rug - works great with all the windows.  

Moody black wall.  I may have posted this before.  I'd never think to do it but I love it.

Even closets can have some great dark elements like this chest covered in textured wallpaper.

Doesn't really fit the rest of my post except it's a darker colored cabinet(s).  Just makes me smile so thought I'd share.

Do you crave darker interiors in the winter, too?

I might be a dude...

I am a bit concerned.  I was just flipping through my November issue of House Beautiful and fell in love with this So Cal house designed by Parrish Chilcoat and Joe Lucas.  Why am I concerned?  Because the designers mention that "Everything definitely says Dude" when discussing the interiors of the home they designed for a professional hockey player.  Now I've often thought I might belong in SoCal but I've never questioned being a woman.  Might need to look into that...Regardless, I LOVE this house and may just have to learn to embrace my inner masculinity!  
Side note: the gray cabinets in the kitchen are simply drool worthy.

This the "Man Cave."  Really?  I could easily spend hours watching foreign documentaries Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in here.  
I'm a sucker for lots of light in an office.  I always want one window to look out and one to my left for light to pour in...And a desk with lots of room to cross my legs under.  This does it!

Excellent soaking tub. I'd turn into a prune here.

The perfect outdoor entertaining space.

Outdoor shower?!?!?  I'm in heaven.  

Want more details?  Click here to read the full interview with the designers. My favorite Q and A:  
If the house were a cocktail, what would it be?   
A Dark 'n' Stormy...

Happy Monday!

Texture Love: Grasscloth Walls

I can not get over the rich color and texture on these walls.  It's been filed away for a "must do" for a while now.  So cozy and so sophisticated!

Oh so pretty stairwell...

And foyer.

This bedroom is bold and fabulous! 

My favorite teal/peacock color used in a bedroom this time.

Hope everyone is having a great start to the week!
