Gorgeous Green

I would have never said green was one of my favourite colours but recently I have been drawn to it, both in interiors and fashion. So it came as no surprise when I saw this room by Tobi Fairley in the latest Traditional Home that I had to feature it. I love the symmetry in the room, the striped green cushions and how they pop against the white sofa, the modern print on the traditional wingback chairs and the starburst mirror which is the obvious focal point in the room. What are some of your favourite elements and how do you feel about green?

Sophisticated Space

Dark blue walls always add an element of sophistication to a room. I absolutely love this one by Todd Romano, the combination of the dark walls, camel leather and zebra rug create a warm yet elegant space.

Bedroom Perfection

Upholstered headboards are one of my favourite ways to dress up a bed not to mention tufted headboards. Jennifer Ferreira has shown her masterful interior designer skills yet again in this luxurious master bedroom. The serene colour palette, natural cowhide rug, bed bench and did I mention that fabulous upholstered headboard all work together making this a comfortable yet chic space. This is definitely one of my all time favourite bedrooms and that bed has looks incredibly comfy and somewhere I would like to spend my time. What do you love about this bedroom? 

Mood Board * My Dream Living Room

This is my dream living room. The velvet sofa and mirrored side table add a bit of glamour while the prints and chandelier maintain an island feel. What does your dream living room look like? Email me at lovedesigninc@yahoo.com for mood boards of your own.

Office Space of the Day* Functional and Fabulous

There are so many things about this space which I love. The fact that it is both functional and fabulous tops my list! The room doubles as a space to work and relax and the lamps add an unexpected touch of glam.I am definitely taking some inspiration from this room and adding some bright throw cushions into my office.

This Weekend...

This weekend I will be relaxing on the beach. What about you? 


Sneak Peek!

Earlier this week I had a photo shoot done of a room I staged and I just got the original shots. I am very happy with them and CANNOT wait until next week to see the edits. Here's a peek..

It's all in the (beautiful) details

I've said it before, it's all in the details, and what beautiful details they are! 

Room of the Day * Parisian Chic

I am getting very excited about my upcoming trip to Europe so in anticipation of one of my destinations I have decided to featured two beautiful Parisian interiors. I love the shabby chic look of these two rooms, the muted colour palette and the traditional chandelier. 



Mood Board* Cozy Cool Living

My take on Meg Braff's Cozy Cool living room. What do you think?

Love workspaces*

If it's one space I love it's a home office or work space, paired with this fun floral roman blind and this is my daily reminder of why I LOVE DESIGN*

Room of the Day* Cool Comfort

This beach cottage living room by Meg Braff exemplifies how different styles used together CAN work! This transitional style combines both modern and traditional elements creating a cozy yet cool room. Contradiction? Maybe! It's a room I would like to relax in regardless. I love the juxtaposition of the panelling and wallpaper, the comfy sofas,the use of the bamboo accessories and that amazing yellow tufted ottomon.

Room of the Day* High Gloss Glamour

It is no surprise that I love the newly released online magazine High Gloss. It is an amazing resource and every time I read it I find something else that I love. This "salon", as referred to by Cathy Echols is one of my favourite rooms and it perfectly represents High Gloss! I especially love the bar in the corner and the matching pelmet and tablecloth.

Bookcases

I am an avid reader and always have a number of books on my bedside. One of my dream home requirements would be to either have a library or floor to ceiling bookcases! To me floor to ceiling bookcases always warm up a room and make me want to curl up with a cup of tea and a good book. Love *

Room of the Day* Via The Decorista

I am in LOVE with this room! I'm not sure whether it's the headboard, bedding, side tables or moroccan poufs or the combination but this room = Why I Love Design!

This Weekend...

Where will you be this weekend? I hope to be somewhere like this with my feet propped up and a book in hand! ( A girl can dream cant she? )

Room of the Day* High Gloss Glamour

Featured in the latest (AMAZING) issue of High Gloss this living room designed by Cathy Echols for a male client epitomizes masculine glamour. Perhaps not two words often seen side by side I could not think of anything better to describe this room because that is exactly what it is. One of my favourite details is the nail head trim on the sofa.

Room of the Day* High Gloss

High Gloss issue two is out today! High Gloss magazine is one of my favourite online magazines and features interior design, fashion, entertaining ideas and travel destinations. In the premier issue they featured this amazing bachelorette pad by designer Erin Gates. I think I'm in LOVE! 


I love the black piping on the sofa and
 the great floor to ceiling windows. 

Quite possibly my favourite dining area EVER! 
I'm loving all the details, especially the glamourous chandelier and mirror.

Online Magazines


Online magazines have started to pop up everywhere and while I am partial to hard copies I cant deny what a great resource they are plus the amount of paper that is being saved by having it done electronically is amazing! Some of my favourite Interior Design online magazines:

Beautiful Spaces * Kitchens

It occurred to me today that I do not have any kitchens featured on my blog so here is a beautiful one from Lonny designed by Jennifer Dyer. Kitchens are one of the most important rooms in the house, not only are they a major selling feature but they are often where a lot of time is spent with friends and family. The massive island in this kitchen is perfect for preparation and storage and the the cozy nook in the corner is ideal for sitting and relaxing.  

Room of the Day*

I love this stunning dining room by Hilary Thomas featured on Lonny. The mirrored walls open up the space and reflect the light from the statement chandelier throughout the room.
