CREATING A VISUAL DIALOGUE

The moment I walked into the gorgeous studio/showroom of design duo Megan Sommerville and Matt Ensner in upstate New York I knew I was in for a treat. Not only did I get to meet one of the most talented couples I've ever met, but also was dazzled by the beautiful craftsmanship in their furniture and lighting collection. Founders of Materia Designs, the couple moved to the Hudson Valley a few years back to start their business where they bought an old bungalow in need of loads of TLC. With their creative spirits in overdrive, Megan and Matt didn't think twice to roll up their sleeves and emerged themselves into a challenging renovation. Luckily for us, they have opened the doors of 'The Cape' (as they like call it their nest) to showcase the stunning transformation and the results of their hard work. I recently chatted with Megan about their project of love and some of the ins and outs of the design process. Here is what she said:

FOR THE LOVE OF CONCRETE

Concrete is often associated with urban and industrial interiors, but this home in the island of Gotland, Sweden is one exception to the rule. Once an old brewery, the rustic abode is a cozy and warm palace in spite of the amount of cast concrete used throughout. I think the mix of natural elements is just right. The decor's bare simplicity is so soothing and inviting that's hard not to fall in love with it.

THE BLACK HERITAGE BARN

Hey dear friends, I know it's been a while since I last sat down in front of my computer to write a post, but to be tell you the truth the last couple of months have been a little crazy. Needless to say I haven't had the time or energy to find cool stuff to write about :( God knows I've missed it. I can't believe it's already November!! Where has the time gone?! Anyhow, I felt it was time to get back in the swing of things and continue sharing doses of inspiration for y'all, especially with the Holidays fast approaching. Right? So let's get to it. Being that today is Monday, I thought this dreamy barn renovation from the Czech Republic would be the perfect burst of inspiration to start the week of. The amazing transformation was done by Oooox design firm with the utmost level of coolness and fabulosity. I'm loving how a minimalistic approach works so well for a countryside retreat. Despite is restrained color palette, the Boooox Heritage Barn still feel warm and inviting. By the way it feels good to be back!

BRILLIANT WHITES

Deciding what color to paint a room is often a task on its own. Can you remember how many times you've stood in front of a sea of color chips with a blank stare on your face not knowing which one to pick? I've certainly done it way too many times, especially when faced with the hard decision of choosing the 'perfect' white. That's why, as a contributor to My Colortopia blog, I chose to break down the myths about this terrific neutral and its many tonalities in a post for their Color 101 series. I invite you to take a peek and get the nitty-gritty on this popular color that will help you decide which one is the right one for your project. Besides white, the series also expands on other color families and gives you tips to help you make the right color choice. Enjoy!  

I have been sponsored by the Glidden® brand paint for PPG to write this post but the thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

THE SKY IS THE LIMIT

Today, we embark on a make-believe trip over the Atlantito take a tour of this spectacular penthouse in Marseille, France. For interior designer Francois Champsaur the sky was literally the limit when he was comissioned to renovate the top floor apartment of an old storage building. His vision was to create an open-layout plan where light navigates the spacious rooms of this modern home. The designer has the amazing talent of playing with proportions and color incorporating pieces that make a dramatic statement — like that amazing oversized round mirror sitting on one corner of the living room. I mean WOW!

A PRECIOUS PARISIAN JEWEL

It's hard to believe this fabulosity-packed apartment is only 430 square feet. Home to interior designer Charlotte Vauvillier, this Parisian flat is tastefully decorated with a delicious mix of mid-century pieces and custom made furniture. One of its amazing features is the clean and clever storage solutions in the living area. But of course, that gorgeous kitchen is the pièce de résistance with that amazing floor tile and stunning gray, yellow and blue color combo. Undoubtedly, Charlotte lives in a small jewel worth drooling for. Wouldn't you say? Happy weekend!

A GENDER NEUTRAL LOFT

I can't get enough of the beautifully serene color palette of this 1860 loft in SoHo, New York . Its soft neutral colors flow from room to room creating a harmonious and soothing ambiance. The whole renovation and design story was conceived by British interior design firm Ochre, known for their exquisite attention to proportions, use of luxurious materials and matchless craftsmanship. One might relate these soft hues with feminine interiors, but by mixing in metal, wood and clean-line pieces they made it a gender neutral home. It is absolutely to dye for!

A PASSION FOR COLOR

Known for her passionate love affair with color, French interior designer Sarah Lavoine lets  us take a peek into this fabulous Parisian duplex she designed. With a black and white base color palette, Sarah introduced strokes of jewel tones to create a sexy design story. I'm sure she decided to paint the floors white to make these gorgeous colors pop and really come alive. Her masterful mix of furniture styles has the right proportion between old and new pieces. I'm in love!
