This ain’t your Grandma’s vinyl floor!

One of the most versatile products to come along in the remodeling marketplace in recent years is the new luxury vinyl plank flooring. Designed with the look of a wood floor or stone tile, this material is beautiful, durable and waterproof, flexible, economical and it can be installed floating over an old floor or glued down right on to concrete or sub floor. What makes this material so special for designers is that now in spaces where wood floor and delicate natural stone have been a “no-no” we can now expand our aesthetic. Luxury vinyl plank such as “Luxe” by Armstrong Floors is so authentic looking you would never know it’s not the real deal. No more limits on designing around limited choices. Now in any busy family home kitchen with pets and kids, any potentially damp area such as a basement or lower level of home, slab-built homes with concrete sub floors, steamy bathrooms and even mudrooms – we can have the amazing look we want without sacrificing durability and easy care.

As the weather gets warmer, we all expand our living to the outdoors. Well, to truly get that “Resort” feel in your outdoor living space, you need a bar cart. Since they have wheels, you can relocate it wherever you like. It’s a perfect poolside summer addition to hold those frosty margaritas, then move it back indoors when dinner is served. Happy Spring!

It is ALWAYS the details that make the difference. As we welcome Spring, windows tend to be the first thing cleaned. Go one step further and install these gorgeous finials, with new window treatments, of course.

This week, my Friday find started with our own studio wall. I am so inspired when I look at our floral decal. It’s a bit of tranquil beauty and, it becomes a statement when paired with a darker gray wall.
It is even more of a statement in a bedroom where the scale of the decal is the focus of the room.

Now that we are also doing exterior design, I came across these very cool outdoor ceramic pieces. Very functional! They can be used as a foot stool, a chair or a table. They are easily moved, can be tucked away, are weather resistance and very colorful. Absolutely love them!

Your bedroom should be your sanctuary.  Specifically your bed.  Your place to relax, unwind, get a good night’s sleep or just zen-out, if needed.  Our client wanted bedroom colors that were serene, reflected outdoors, were not pastel and worked with their existing headboard.  This groupings of materials and colors drew me in.  The combination of the greens and blues was perfect.  The pillows offered stripes, patterns and textures that all lived harmoniously on the quilt.  And, it complimented the dark wood headboard of the bed.  Soft sheets, warm blankets, accent pillows and a warm glass of milk or chilled glass of wine and you are good to go.

While searching for a dresser “with style” , I came across this beautiful two tone wood dresser,
What really captured my attention were the silver hoop pulls.  Loved the sleekness of the piece, the light wood trim that compliments so many floor coverings, accented by the unexpected silver pulls.  
And, a bonus, the client loves orange and the piece worked so well with her existing pieces.  It was a perfect fit.

Gallery Walls

I love to design gallery walls for our client’s spaces.  With so many choices, it truly shows the personality of the owners and defines the home.  Think of the totally different feel a wall of family photos framed in silver on a full wall gives versus vintage valentines framed around a window or door.  And mixed elements can be used.  Photos, children’s drawings, favorite cards.  It can all work.  And the space – full wall, unusual location, even the drama of a floor to ceiling gallery.  Then, there is the framing to consider or, in some cases, the lack of them. Your framing choice can make the wall formal or whimsical.  And, finally the placement.  I’d like to say it comes easy, but it doesn’t.  It’s like a puzzle that you move around A LOT until you get the feeling you wanted it to portray.  Once it’s installed, you will always see something new in it that makes you smile.
