DRAMATIC AND SEXY

There's always room for dark and handsome interiors in my book. Although some people might feel a dark color palette can make a room look gloomy and smaller, this sexy French home makes a good case for the opposite. The secret is in mixing different shades of gray and black to create dimension and interest in every room. In this particular abode, the use of white, cream and wood accents add the right amount of light to complement the stunning dark hues. Talk about drama!

A GREAT NEW ADDITION

When it comes to renovating a kitchen, IKEA, in my humble opinion, is by far your best bet. Ever since I started my love affair with IKEA, I've designed all my kitchens (and even those of my clients) with their fabulous METOD cabinets. They're great fun to design with and truly not very hard to install. But the talent of IKEA never seizes to amaze me. I'm beyond excited they're expanding their already fantastic kitchen system by introducing METOD — a brand new line which is simply to die for. With new cabinet sizes, different door choices and accessories, METOD gives you endless possibilities to design the stylish kitchen you've always wanted. What I love most about this new kitchen line is it's versatility and sleek features. I can't wait to see it in person.

THE MAGIC OF BLACK

Being that today we're celebrating Halloween, I thought it would be fun to treat you to a few magical and alluring spaces stunningly decorated in darker color palettes where black is king. Not a color that most people love, black is a beautiful hue that works great in interiors. Like the little black dress, this rich hue dresses up a room giving it a sense of drama and sophistication. Whether used in small accents or painting a whole room, you will find this bewitching color is perfect to make a statement with. Have a spookylicious Halloween!

A PASSIONATE DECOR

His profound passion for architecture, music and fashion has evidently been an influence in Danish fashion designer David Andersen's home. His slick yet rustic pad is filled with amazing show-stopping pieces, like the fab African antelope taxidermy above the fireplace and the stunning tripod floor lamp in the living room. They add a bit of raw and industrial vibe to the minimalist home. Although David's palette of choice for the decor is mostly black and white (a man after my own heat), a subtle sprinkle of hot pink made its way on to the legs of the dining room table—a fun touch of adding an element of surprise. Double sigh!!

HANG IT ALL

The timeless classic coat rack by Charles and Ray Eames has always been a favorite of mine. Although I loved the original Hang-It-All version with the multi-colored lacquered balls, I'm elated to see new colors added the collection. Now an all-black and all-white versions available for those who want to keep things to a minimal — like moi. It was about time!

WITH FASHION IN MIND

Inspired by the strong graphic style of fashion designers Rick Owens and Damir Doma, fashion stylist Sofia Ragnwald Odier and fashion photographer Nils Odier renovated this old farmhouse into a sleek country home for their family. They decided to replace their big city life in Stockholm, with a quiter and more relaxing lifestyle in the countryside to be in touch with nature and offer their kids more space to live and play. Their mostly black and white decor is offset by beautiful wooden furnishings and an collection of whimsical accessories that add that glimpses of their personalities to the home.

THE POWER OF BLACK

I've always had a crush with the color black. Probably for it's strong and bold presence among other colors in the spectrum. It's such an easy hue to work with since it's one of the few colors that tie everything together in a room. Whether used as an accent or as the primary color in interiors, black always conveys sophistication and modernism. This sharp-looking house is one of the properties shown in Housing Fair Finland. I love the fact they used black as the predominant color in this home's decor. Although some might feel it makes it look impersonal and cold, the addition of wood furnishings throughout adds the right touch of warmth to each of the rooms. By the way, I would have never thought of painting the ceiling black, but I applaud them for such a bold move. Quite the stunner!
