Super Glam Bathrooms

This bathroom is truly on another level. This is a bathroom fit for royalty. It hurts my brain a little bit to imagine using this room. It’s almost gone past being a room meant to serve a function and entered the realm of being art. Okay I may be overreacting just a touch but seriously look at this place.

If you can’t afford miles of marble you can still have a totally glam bathroom. Black makes a space dramatic and sexy. Pair it with brass and you’ve got an easy recipe for glamour.

Modern + Traditional = almost always a good idea. Ornate frames take this room from run-of-the-mill to wow. The old, textural pieces pair especially well with the clean, sleek white tile. A juxtaposition made in heaven.

P.S. Sorry it’s been sooo long since I blogged. Work has been crazy!

Great Spaces to Work from Home

Great Spaces to Work from Home | thedesignfiles.net |  design-vox.com

I love rooms that can serve multiple functions. This table can offer a welcoming spot for brunch with friends as well as act as a work space. Can’t find a desk you like for your home office? Don’t get a desk then. Particularly if you don’t need a bunch of storage or place to hide cords, a regular old table can offer everything you need. Plus you’ll be the cool person who thought outside the box. Can I also just say a huge yes to this chalky gray wall color, the portrait, and fiddle leaf fig tree. Somehow I’m not sick of those trees yet even though they have been everywhere in design for quite a while now.

Sweet modern furniture + plants. All you really need to have a killer room.

Again, this room reads like a dining room and absolutely could be used as such, but it also looks like an ideal place to sit down and get some work done or hold a small meeting. Great light and just enough decoration to be interesting without being distracting. And your most valuable coworker: the cat. He means business.

The Versatility of Marble

The Versatility of Marble | dmagazine.com | design-vox.com

Probably 70% of the kitchen photos that I share feature marble. It is easily my favorite countertop material visually speaking. I know it has its shortcomings (rare varieties can be very expensive and it’s susceptible to scratching and staining) but to me it’s worth it for the sheer beauty. Though it has a distinctive appearance, it can work in probably any style home. The marble in the kitchen above is subtle and soft, one of the more common veining patterns, and it fits in perfectly with the grand and glamorous design.

This marble’s darker gray streaks and almost speckled quality make it more visually striking which really adds interest to this rather minimalist, modern kitchen.

Normally I’m drawn to the more standard simple gray veining in Carrera marble, but this photo is threatening to change my mind. This is clearly one of those more rare varieties of marble that probably costs an arm and a leg, but holy cow is it ever gorgeous. And just an absolutely perfect treatment, the way it’s been used as both the countertop and the backsplash as well as a seamless sink and shelf. Here marble seems to take on a rustic quality that it normally doesn’t have, accentuated by a rough (cement maybe?) wall treatment and casual collection of items on the shelf. I love it!

Ideas For A Beautiful Bedroom

Ideas For A Beautiful Bedroom | cameralink.se/artists/idha-lindhag | design-vox.com

I am a big fan of simple, textural, layered bedding. I love the relaxed, unfussy look of linen and a soft chunky throw blanket on top. Without a headboard something was needed to anchor this bed and giant framed art fits the bill beautifully. It isn’t always easy or affordable to procure art this large, so try thinking out of the box by searching for art posters (like these), wall murals (like this), tapestries, or by having an image blown up at a copy shop.

Painting your bedroom walls dark is a sure fire way to make the room cozy and dramatic. Be sure to balance it with lighter elements (like the rug, light shade, and artwork in this room). Rather than using one large ceiling fixture, several smaller lights such as table lamps create flattering, comforting light in small pools throughout a room.

A couple of standout, stylish pieces elevates a whole room. This lovely modern side table is an eye catcher that along with the unusual lamp proves functional pieces can and should be beautiful too. If you’re working with a tight budget for bedroom furniture, I’d say save money on the bed frame and get something simple that will just be covered by bedding all the time anyway. Then pick either nightstands or a dresser to be your “standout” furniture item and spend a little more on that. Let your standout item be the star by styling it up and making sure it’s well lit. If there’s money left don’t forget art for the walls! Art will instantly make the room feel “decorated” and personal.
