New Contemporary Project

I just wanted to post some pictures of a job we just recently completed at work and the WONDERFUL photographs by Merrick. Can we say "Architectural Digest?" I absolutely love the way the Kitchen turned out! The dining chairs are cool too- upholstered in black hair hide.

Back in Black


I saw this console picture today and it is going to be great inspiration for our Master Bedroom dresser. I love the black paint, brass hardware, yellow orchids and all the STUFF on top. I'm wanting to bring some black into my bedroom, and for those of you who haven't seen it, my dresser has black feet and brass hardware, and my lamps have black bases with black trim on the fabric shades. I definately want a unique and textural mirror to go above the dresser (in black), but haven't found one yet. (This was supposed to be the honeycomb mirrror I blogged about from Tuesday Morning, but failed to buy). I doubt I will seriously put this much stuff on the dresser, but styling it out some is appealing. I even love the candle sconces which would require no electrical work. I'm also thinking about the nightstands being black with the adddition of some cool hardware from Anthropologie. So exciting!!

It's time again: Craiglist finds!

I know some of you enjoyed the last post on furniture finds from Craigslist, so here are some more current selections by me:

This chair doesn't look like much now, but painted wood and funky fabric and you've got yourself an accent piece worthy of attention! $80 
Yet another wing chair- Imaginations please!

Nailhead detail is rad! You would have to redo this when you change the fabric, but I would definately keep this detail!
I honestly think this would be cute if the cream colored parts were painted another color- whatever matches your interior! You could also add new lampshades or not.
Love this as a bedside table!
Turquoise is so hot right now! Not kidding- read the mags!
Ok, that's it for now, I'm tired of searching ;)

Looks for less!!

Hey- Just wanted to let you know about a cool website that helps you find designer looks on a budget. Most of the items look exactly the same, just at a lower price. I'm psyched. I've also found some links to fabric websites worth checking out. The site is called Decor Pad. They also have room inspiration pics like these:
Loving those modern lucite chairs with the rustic wood table

Would have never thought gray paint and brass hardware could look so good...

Love the neutrals and natural elements here. A few pops of color and pattern and this interior would be perfect for me

The mirror that got away...

Saw this at Tuesday Morning but didn't buy it. When I went back of course it was gone. So sad... Apparently this one's from Ballard Designs but they no longer make it. If anyone finds something like this, PLEASE let me know! Thanks :)

Designer Spotlight: Palmer Weiss

I just discovered interior designer Palmer Weiss through Delight by Design blog. I really love her chic, feminine interiors and her combination of new and vintage furniture. So inspiring...

  I really love the texture that the dining chairs add to the room. I also love how they contrast with the dark walls which look to be wallpapered in some type of grasscloth. I also like how the gold is repeated in the mirror, light fixture, and curtains. I like everything about this room, really!


 I love the tile detail on the fireplace-very clever! Also the unexpected placement of the pendant fixtures over the chair.
She has such a great balance of color, pattern, and texture in all her interiors!
The hardware on the dresser is great! Where does she find this stuff??
