This week I've got another round of vintage bathroom inspiration. What I like about this style is it's bold and easy. You don't have to hunt down a certain ceramicist for a particular tile glaze, you don't have to do a whole lot of soul searching to design this type of bathroom AND it will… Continue reading Vintage Bathroom Inspiration: Green and Black Tile
I had the pleasure of touring a circa 1904 home here in Denver with original millwork and one original bathroom semi-intact. I love dilapidated beauty and I love original home details. The site visit was so invigorating I walked away with the key in my pocket and had to go back the next day and… Continue reading Vintage Bathroom Inspiration: Red and Pink Tile
Worn and warm (Photo Source) Artist Luke Sciberras's home It's December of 2021 and this was a tough year for me and, not to assume, but I'm sure it was for a lot of people. Coming out of 2020, I thought 2021 would be amazing, but it turns out you can't just emerge from 2020… Continue reading On My Mind: Vintage with Color
I've been slowly reading/savoring a coffee table book called May I Come In by Wendy Goodman. It's a book with interiors that she's photographed from the past 30 years and it reminds me of the feeling I would get from thumbing through a House & Garden back in the days before Instagram and Pinterest. As… Continue reading Kitchen Design: A British Invasion
Note that sky blue ceiling with the gorgeous wood paneling! (Source) Lately painting or papering ceilings is everywhere you look and I love the bright, robin's egg blue of the ceiling in the sushi restaurant above. I also love the giant sconces on the wall that look like flush mount lights just mounted as a… Continue reading Get Your Color On!
This end of summer heat we're experiencing has thrown me a little. Nelson, the lab mix, is shedding like it's July and every day I sweep up snowdrifts of fur from the places around the house where it likes to settle. I've been having fun decorating the new addition in our home but that's been… Continue reading Turning a Craigslist Dresser into a Sink
It's more green than I remember seeing in a while in the Denver area. My eyes drink up the color when I'm on my walks like I've been living in the desert for a while. Things will turn brown soon enough, but there's something so healing about coming out of the intense Covid Era and… Continue reading Little Pink Houses: Adding on to a 1930’s Home
Mountain modern rolls off the tongue really well but I'm not sure what I expect when I hear those words. I think modern has a lot of different possibilities but when I think "Mountain Home," I think wood grain. I'm a big fan of wood planks, wood floors, wood tongue & groove - give me… Continue reading Before & After: A Mountain Modern Kitchen in Morrison, Colorado
I was thinking yesterday about how wonderful it is to live in a part of the world that experiences all four seasons. There's something rapturous and poetic about coming out of a long, dark winter and seeing buds on trees, hyacinths breaking up out of the ground and birds coming back through on their way… Continue reading Lines Written in Early Spring: 1930’s House Remodel Update
I've been thinking about purposeful, oversized lighting. Intentionally using a light fixture that's a little too big for the space can look phenomenol. It's hard to let yourself (or your designer) to supersize it because you know it's a little off and there's always a risk that it will look weird. I think there's an… Continue reading Easy Design Impact? Super size your chandelier!
