There is nothing more satisfying than finding the Perfect Lamp to finish off a room. Lamps, lamps, lamps, they come in every size, shape, material, and style you can imagine. I have gathered some of my favorites that are my go-to lamps for most of my projects and put them all in one place for you to check out. Let me know which style is your favorite. Me…I like sparkly things so I generally run to the crystal lamps. But I do love a good gord style just as much. Then…there are those time when nothing but a great iron lamp will do. Good thing there are choices! Take a look here. Enjoy!
Ten Bedroom Decorating Ideas from my Design Portfolio.
The Bedroom is by far one of my Favorite spaces to design and decorate.
It can be a fun, serious, a room that is a sanctuary, a room for guests, a room for kids, the list goes on and on. I think that’s why I love to design and decorate bedrooms the options are endless. Could be because I have design SO Many! Every project has 2-3 and sometimes 4 bedrooms. Practice makes perfect? I’ve gathered a variety of bedrooms from my portfolio. Had to limit it to ten…could have gone on and on, but decided to start with ten.
There is no denying my love for a good Before and After story. This one is no exception.
My clients came to me after purchasing the waterfront home for the beautiful River view, they loved the lot, location and size of the home. They were not quite as impressed with most of the interior layout, the windows, the Bathroom, the Kitchen and the complete lack of architectural details in the house.
Let’s just say they were prepared for a Major renovation.
It helps to understand that my clients we completely open to any ideas I had for making changes to the house. There were some absolute must-do items on their to-do list which would require reconfiguring the floor plan and some major reworking things like ceilings and flooring. The Master Bathroom was definitely a high priority on the to-do list. The original plan had two separate areas – his with shower and hers with a shower and a tub between both. The bathroom was divided from the Master Bedroom by a hall visible from the Living Room. Passing through the hall you would come to another hallway with closets on each side.
The area where the terrace is located is above the backyard up a slight hill. The area that has been cleared and readied for a small seating area to take advantage of the views from above. The platform for the terrace is small, just 13 x 13 and the furniture needs to be weather resistant, lightweight and we are looking to create a fun little spot to hang out. These are a few of the selections I sent for my client to take a look at.
I love the retro vibe of this Design Within Reach Chair. It reminds me of the old strap furniture we had when I was a kid, but with a much cooler look.
I just think of Hawaii when I look at these cool chairs from One Kings Lane. Maybe it’s the fabric, but I can hear Don Ho singing….
Teak and woven resin are a great combo for these loungers from One Kings Lane.
