I love beautiful double door.  When I am in France each summer visiting my mother’s amazing rental apartment in Paris, I am reminded that my dream house must have a double doors somewhere. Mom’s Parisian summer flat has tall ceilings and glorious double doors leading from the dining room to the living room.  Classic, tall, with molding, striking substantial knobs and some door trim that stands out.

Would love to have interior double doors leading to a bedroom or dining room. Something so elegant about flinging open two doors to a room.

Here are 13 double doors I am loving. A little design inspiration for a Tuesday!

Okay…we are not too far from Spring. My tip of the day is that now is the time to shop for the perfect suede boot for next season.

I have several pairs of suede boots and suede booties…they are my default “go to” for fall and winter wear. My bestie AM always gives me cute things when I visit. Last time I was in NY at her place, she decided to give me a beautiful pair of over the knee blue Stuart Weitzman suede boots she had bought but had never worn. They rock. Now time to hunt for some more to add to the boot collection…this time on sale!

It is a designer dining room recreate kind of Friday today on the the blog!

This well styled and very achievable dining room is our feature room today.  Fresh, bright, not over done, with some character. It is from the prolific self-made social media savvy designers Syd and Shea McGee of Studio McGee.  I like interior design that you can actually imagine people using on a day to day basis. Pretty and attainable home decor is always welcomed here on the blog! 😉

We are going to give you ideas on recreating this look using some of my own new COCOCOZY rugs!  First, another view of this cute room.

This is the perfect small eat-in kitchen design. Checkered floors, grey cabinets, subway tile backsplash and even a bit of exposed brick in the mix. Details, details, details…the devil is in them!

Most people like open floor plan concept kitchens these days. While I like the idea of eating, cooking and living in the same room, I kind of don’t. 😉 For me, this little well designed galley kitchen works as its own little cooking and dining area. I like.

Today a I bring you a stunner – a lovely house tour of a Lyon, France apartment.  My dream apartment.  Owned by Pierre Emmanuel Martin and Stéphane Garotin of Lyonnaise furniture store Maison-Hand, this 19th century flat is the epitome of French style.  High ceilings, cool light grey walls, decorative molding and a mix of spectacular chevron, herringbone and parquet wood floors…dream dream dream.

Take a look…would you live here?

Random story…somewhat related to but kind of not related to this pretty black and white bathroom in this post…bottom line is due to my endless house hunt, I am on endless search for ideas for the perfect kitchen, bath, floors, lighting and more.

Okay…here goes the somewhat random story…bear with me…

So I was at a Super Bowl party the other day with SFJ.  My friend RB (or RBD) and her hubby JS had invited us to their lovely home.  I must admit SJF and I went to the party to be totally social and to hang out with friends…not for the game.  The set up RBD and JS had going was quite spectacular. Catered food, a bar, servers asking you what you needed at every moment, lots of people milling, comfy seating for game watching.  It was like glamping for Super Bowl.  They also had 3 televisions going.  One was outside (such a luxury to watch the game by their pool).  One was in her husband’s man cave, a chic designer version of a man cave.  The last was t.v. was in a very refined den.  SFJ and I were in the den sitting in the room with all of the people who were just watching the commercials when RB’s friend K made me feel so much better about my house hunt…

Happened upon this stunning industrial apartment in Spain with concrete walls!  Yes. Concrete walls! Very modern and masculine – all grey.  Not quite my style but thought the concept was so interesting that I had to share.  Designed by Katty Schiebeck, this small loft in Barcelona is a must see for the architecturally curious!  This one is the complete opposite of the bright fresh bohomian living room I posted yesterday…but I think I like this too.

I imagine some sleek very urban very modern man living in here. Who could you imagine living in a home with concrete walls. Take a look.
