Pressing art

If you've always wanted to brag about your artistic talent, but there isn't one there, this is your big chance to do it. With these incredible and amusing wall stickers you can add so much to a space without having to deal with paint or the mess thereafter - it's a breeze. Better yet, you can go from tropical to abstract in no time. You can even have your own maintenance-free tweety-bird. I really think it's the perfect alternative to dressing up any stark wall an enhance the mood of any room. What's your choice? I'm between the tree trunks and the cage... Love them!

Making it Fall

My friends, the time has come to put those bathing suits and flip-flops away... Fall is fast approaching. I guess we need to start thinking of warming up the decor in our nest, and what better way than using nature as inspiration. I've always been a big fan of natural materials as they let us bring a little bit of the outside in. You don't need to go overboard and completely redo your interiors, just adding a couple of key pieces, fabrics and accessories will immediately transform the mood of your pad. All you'll need then is a hot cup of cocoa, or tea, to kick back and enjoy this beautiful time of year. Happy Fall!

Step out!

Woke up this morning and when I stepped out to take my Frenchie out for his early walk the cool breeze made me realize that summer days are almost gone. So my friends, go out an enjoy the rest of the warmer days. Fall is almost here. Happy Sunday!

Tears of joy

I was blown away by these gorgeously fun glass globes that will definitely be a conversation piece in your home. Hand-blown from recycled glass stock, each piece is handmade, one at a time, by Justin and Andi at Esque. These Wall Tears are sold as a set of three. They come in a variety of colors including White, Cream, Red, Orange, Pink, Chartreuse, Gray, and Turquoise. Every tear is unique.


Fashionable stays

Every September, New York Fashion Week brings to the city an atmosphere of glamour and fabulosity. Everyone and anyone in the fashion community (or not) flocks to the Big Apple to witness the latest creations the dictators of style present to the world. It is why I decided to dedicate this post to fashion and the influence it has in our lives, even where we sleep.

What does Christian Lacroix, Giorgio Armani, Diane von Furstenberg, Missoni and Phillip Tracey have in common besides being fashion power houses? They're now lending their magnificent talent to the world of interior design and creating chic and luxurious cribs for you to crash while traveling around the world. It's so evident that each one of them has translated their fashion philosophy and style into these unique boutique hotels.

If you have the chance to stay at the Hotel Le Notre Dame in Paris you'll see les chambres are as eccentric as their creator, the infamous Christian Lacroix.

Wallpaper has been around for centuries, but in vogue, on and off. However, we had not seen the surge in popularity that it has had in the last couple of years since the 70s. Thankfully, this new renaissance has no traces of that era. Nowadays there is something for everyone. I took a look at this amazing concrete-like wallpaper and a had to do a double take.

Sitting pretty

This gorgeous award-winner chair is not only beautifully designed but also eco-friendly. Alex Whitney’s ‘Pennyfields’ chair is made out of metal and embodies the sustainable nature of bamboo. This innovative design will be launched at the beginning of the London Design festival, on the September 20. Kudos Alex.


White not?

Yes, yes I know, we're way into the second week of September and the style fairies out there are telling us to forget about anything and everything white. But guess what, I don't subscribe to that philosophy. To the contrary. I'm a huge fan of Mr. White and a firm believer that we should always welcome him into our homes as he lends us a beautiful canvas for us to design with. So my friends, don't be afraid of the light and embrace the brightness that a white filled room can bring. I've been so inspired by these gorgeous space designed by renowned Spanish interior designer Nacho Polo (first two images) that I will be giving my wooden floors a much needed coat of paint...guess what color.
