Natures Very Own

This weeks room of the week is a beautiful naturally light living room. This room has so many unique features that come together perfectly, starting with this gorgeous elevated ceiling that features a window spanning the entire room. Even more stunning is this amazing light fixture that is perfectly centered in the room. This light is perfect because it is unique in shape and gives off minimal light due to the natural light already coming in from the back window. One of my favorite features in this house is the concrete flooring. Concrete has recently become one of my favorite design features. It is so sleek, goes with everything, and gives a little bit of an industrial look. In this case they went with a cream colored concrete instead of the usual grey, and I absolutely love it. Additionally, the pilars located behind the sofa and behind the television, not only is it unique but it adds dimension to the room. The fact that the pilars behind the television are green goes along with the nature them but adds some color to a very muted room. This is also why I absolutely adore the oversized rug because it mixes perfectly with the oversized couch and adds even more color to the palette. I love the fact that the rug has red color tones, because red and green are across from each other on the color wheel which me they are complementary colors. Additionally, the colors are dark which works perfectly with the rest of the muted tones.

Check Again!

Staying with the checkers theme, lets talk about this dark and gorgeous bathroom courtesy of @drummonds_bathrooms. This huge check pattern on the floor makes the room look humongous. The large white squares in the patter lighten the room up a little bit, which is perfect because the rest of the features are so dark. The black walls are perfect and sleek while the molding adds even more dimension. The claw foot tub is immaculate, especially the chrome finishing and the free standing faucet. My favorite part of this room is the statue because it is so unique and random yet works so incredibly well in this space. I absolutely love how they are using this statue as a towel holder making it functional and fun. The tub, the sink, and the toilet match so perfectly in terms of their looks and the exposed chrome piping. All the pops of color are a 2019 fan favorite, emerald green, and are spaced out very well with only four emerald green pieces in the room…. the towel, the vase, the chair, and the table stand…. perfect accent color pieces. I love the fact that they didn’t include a pop of color in the art piece but instead kept that in black and white as well, this art piece draws the attention to the tub right below it which instead of being placed right up against the wall is about two feet out from it, which is such an incredible design feature and decision. They went with a long light fixture to not only highlight the tub but the painting as well. The bathroom is gorgeous, attention grabbing, and perfectly executed.

New Series: Beyond The Wall

Lets spice things up a bit. I am introducing a new weekly series to my blog that will focus on beautiful rooms from designers all over the world. This series entitled, Beyond The Wall, is a series that will crown a new winner every week as my favorite “Room of the week.” All rooms are eligible, whether it be a bedroom, laundry room, bathroom, kitchen, terrace or more. So lets get started with our very first Beyond The Wall winner, this beautiful entryway and staircase is styled by @amykchin and featured on @elledecor Instagram page, check them both out.

This entryway boats custom black and white marble with contrasting patterns on both the stairway and the floors. The use of these geometric shapes in a neutral color palette is not only super sophisticated and different but it also enhances the space as a whole. Running the rectangles vertical on the stairway draws the eye upward making the room look far taller while the half hexagon shape on the floor makes the room look longer and wider. This entryway is extremely charming and elegant due to the color scheme, shapes, and that beautiful original handrail that runs the entire stairway. The black and white is broken up subtle hints of brass in the tables and the light fixture as well as the hints of pink and red in the huge art piece hanging on the side. This art piece is perfect for this space, especially as we are starting to see maximalist art become a major trend in 2019. This beautiful area only makes me wonder what the rest of the house looks like and how this glamorous theme was carried and conveyed throughout the rest of the home.
