Today’s interior inspiration is all about the perfect summer home. I discovered it last week while waiting at the airport. You all know I love doors. It’s one of my weaknesses in architectural design. And this door is blue! So I had to take a look inside this home. I’m happy I did!
The Florida residence was designed by Jake Arnold. He helped design this home for a Palm Beach hotel developer. The exterior features stucco-clad and a stepped roof. The owner wanted it to mimic Bermudian architecture. I would never want to leave this gorgeous pad. See more rooms below.

Did you know Brooklyn is larger than Manhattan? In fact, it’s three times bigger than Manhattan. I just learned this and my mind is blown. Speaking of Brooklyn, interior designer Jenna Chused renovated her spacious Brooklyn apartment. She’s the designer behind the firm Chused & Co. Her apartment is elegant and full of natural light. Her design style is unique, which is why I thought I share it with all of you.
One of the stand-out rooms in this spacious Brooklyn apartment is the kitchen. What initially looks like another white kitchen is actually incredibly unique. Chused mixes textures and color palettes that you don’t normally see in a NY kitchen.
Hues of blue are never boring. Celebrity interior designer, Sheila Bridges, has incorporated different colors in her projects for years. One of my favorite things about her designs is the way she plays around with prints and patterns. I noticed while browsing her portfolio is her love for the color blue. Almost all of her projects have at least one room with color. And they never look the same. Depending on the style you are going for, blue can set the tone and elevate your space. Here are some of my favorite blue rooms by Bridges below!
The photo above is her kitchen from her Harlem project. It features fun and custom patterns that compliment the light blue color. She loves to work with rich colors. Her design aesthetic is using Harlem toile and styling it with something unexpected.

Is pink the new gray in interior design? Back in June, I did a post about pink interiors. Now it’s March and I’m seeing a rise of pink hues on my Instagram feed. It’s not everyone’s go-to color when decorating their home. However, pink can transform a space in various ways. Use lighter hues for a more elegant and chic look. If you want something rich and sophisticated, then go for a deep pink/reddish hue.
The room above was designed by my friends @bexmarie + @raskindphoto of Renouveau Hom. They renovated a Spanish-style home in Leimert Park. The home is full of life with vibrant patterns and colors. It’s a fun home to explore because it’s unlike anything you’ve seen in Los Angeles. The house feels playful and whimsical without being overwhelming. The pink bathroom is one of my favorite rooms in the house. The combination of different pink tones and rose gold fixtures makes for the perfect bathroom design.
Perfecting the minimalist decor look is hard. I’ve redecorated my living room a handful of times. Trying to find the right balance and get the minimalistic style is a challenge. Especially, if you’re not exactly sure what you need and don’t need. The key is finding the right decor that compliments your space. Take a step back and look at the room that you want to redesign. What can you keep? What can you remove? Minimalism is about decorating with the bare essentials. Get rid of your clutter. Start with a fresh eye to find the true star of your room. Is it your fireplace? Is it your window? Design your room around your favorite pieces. Let the furniture be the stars of your living room. Here are 25 Minimalist Furniture and Decor items to help get you started.

There’s nothing that feels more like spring than a table full of fresh flowers, earthy tones, and linen fabrics beautifully arranged on an outdoor table. The perk of having my own courtyard is being able to throw lavish spring dinner parties. And an added bonus is the great weather in California. I love sitting down and brainstorming table concepts and ideas. If you’re feeling ready to start hosting again then this guide of spring table decor is for you. I’ve gathered everything from tablecloths to serveware to help you throw the perfect spring dinner party at your home.
Gwyneth Paltrow allowed the world to see a glimpse inside her Montecito estate. If you know anything about Gwyneth, then you know that she promotes health and wellness. The design of her house is also a reflection of that. Her home feels very organic and clean. It even includes a large spa, which I’m guessing is the perfect place to try out the latest Goop products. Paltrow teamed up with Roman and Williams design firm to create her dream home. She also collaborated with Brigette Romanek to add a contemporary twist to her own personal taste. Take a look inside her home that features natural elements, large steel windows, and designer flair.
My favorite room in the home is the foyer, which is shown above. It features a fireplace from the 18th-century and reclaimed-stone floors from Chateau `Domingue. An elegant entry to a contemporary home.
I saw this bathroom on Instagram. The tub is set in a nook. It’s like your own sanctuary within your bathroom. Interior Designers from Roman and Williams Guild, Stephen Alesch, and Robin Standefer, designed this bathroom for their Brooklyn home. It features nature-like wallpaper that is also used in their living room. Its tree branches and floral details make the home feel enchanting. It almost feels like you’re in a dreamy forest. However, the bathroom is the true star of their home. From the black tub to the brass fixtures, it’s a beautiful design.
Neutral decor isn’t for everyone. So here’s some interior inspiration for those who aren’t afraid of color. This SoHo townhouse features vibrant colors in almost every room. Interior designer, Giancarlo Valle, crafted a home that has a perfect balance of playful and modern details. Every color, piece of furniture, and decor is strategically placed to tell a story. My favorite room is the library. I discovered it on Instagram and thought “WOW.” How often do you see an orange-red color scheme in a library? It features bespoke brushed-oak shelving and a 1970s table. See more rooms below!
Say goodbye to warm tones and bright colors in 2021. Black interiors are taking over the interior design world. Everyone has their own design style. Some people don’t like the all-white kitchen trend. Or the rustic neutral farmhouse looks that we’ve been seeing all over the internet. Personally, I have found myself steering away from bright white rooms. I’m not saying that I’m going to be painting my walls charcoal tomorrow. However, there is something that makes me go “WOW” when I see a dramatic black room.
Black is classic. Although, most people stay away from it when they’re decorating their home. It can change the tone of a room from playful to sophisticated. While on a deep dive, I discovered beautiful dark rooms that I think you all should see.
Former Miss Universe and now Fashion influencer, Olivia Culpo, is showing off her glamourous pad in Encino. After years of living in a small apartment, she finally made the move to a spacious 5,000 square foot sanctuary. Culpo needed a home that was both comfortable and calming. With the help of interior designer Jess Diab, they found the perfect balance of glamour and chic within this space. The decorating process was slow because of the pandemic. The duo approached each room strategically. They added vintage and contemporary pieces. Culpo was inspired by French architecture. Her home is full of textured furniture and decor with personal touches.
The photo above is of her walk-in closet. Her fashion is on full display. You can spot her crowns from her Miss USA and Miss Universe wins.
Brigette Romanek, the owner of Romanek Design Studio, gave an inside look at her eclectic Mediterranean-style home in Laurel Canyon. It’s bright and airy but has Romanek’s vibrant touch throughout the home. It features whimsical art, clean lines, and luxurious decor. What’s even more interesting about this home is that it was rumored to be owned by Houdini in the 1920s.
Romanek’s passion for design started when she decorated homes for her family and close friends. She realized her love for interior design which eventually led her to open her very own studio. Her style is a combination of modern and vintage designs. She is playful with her creations, but everything always has a purpose.
This luxurious Aspen ski chalet is the perfect winter escape. Who wouldn’t want to vacation in Aspen for the holiday season? Interior designer, Sandra Nunnerley, inherited the project from Alan Wanzenberg (New York-based Architect) after the original owners decided to sell. Nunnerley transformed the cozy cottage into an ultramodern sanctuary for ski enthusiasts. I’m not much of a skier, but I’m sure this would be a dream for anyone who loves outdoor activities in the frosty snow. The home has seven bedrooms and a rustic locker room to store all of the client’s snow gear. Nunnerley wanted a balance of luxury and comfortability. Since it is her client’s vacation home, she wanted the space to feel welcoming and relaxed. Throughout the home, you will find earthy tones and color palettes. She decorated each room with warm woods and rustic textures. Get inspired by this beautiful winter home.
I’m so excited to share that I have a new collection with Capel Rugs coming soon. Some of you already know that I have collaborated with the Capel Rugs team before. I really enjoy working with Cameron and her team. This collection includes new COCOCOZY textiles and designs with a modern twist. I wanted this collection to be able to be styled in any room. There are four rug patterns included: Cobblestone, Escape, Happy Day, and Pulse. The collection will be available in March 2022.
The collection was displayed at High Point Market back in October. It was my first time seeing the collection in person. Not to be biased…they’re so beautiful! I would recommend placing your orders now if you’re thinking about buying one. They will sell out quickly once they are available in March. Take a look at the collection below!
The holiday sale ends December 1st.
Take a look inside AD100 designer Sheila Bridge’s recent project. A large estate set on 23 acres in Bedford Hills, New York. With making each zone their own cozy space, Bridges added touches of the 1930’s throughout the estate. The designer explained that research is always the start for her design process. While striving to create livable spaces, Sheila wanted to keep the core elegant spirit intact.
With 30 years experience in designing, she tries “not use the same thing twice” when it comes to her interiors. See how she does just that in this elegant countryside estate below.
It’s time for another New York City apartment tour. Natasha Nyanin, a creative consultant, travel expert, and freelance writer, gave Architectural Digest an inside look at her eclectic apartment. It features high ceilings, a lot of natural light, and a mid-century aesthetic that will leave you envious. The Upper West Side apartment features bold decor and vibrant art. The decor has been inspired by her worldly travels. With the help of her interior designer friend, Nina Blair, they created an effortlessly beautiful space.
