Park City Ski Lodge

condofamilyroom

When styling this client’s ski lodge we wanted a rustic modern design- something that looked good but was also cozy. The comfortable navy blue chairs from Target were a great purchase that filled the space perfectly and brought in some much needed color. The wood tones and natural fibers we incorporated helped to warm up the modern look and be functional as well as durable for renters. This fiddle leaf fig plant from ZGallerie is the best fake one that I’ve found and brings in just the right amount of greenery to the space.

These shelves from Ikea were the perfect spot to corral books and accessories and the Target lamp is such a reasonable price without having to sacrifice great looks.

The contrasting dark moldings with lightly painted walls was a great way to combine rustic and modern. This clock from CB2 is beautiful in any space with it’s pewter face and gold hands.

condotable

This rustic table from West Elm added a great touch of rustic to the space and the end chairs from World market add comfort and texture.

condokitchen

These stools from World market function perfectly in the space and the light wood tones help to offset all of the dark cabinetry.

condomaster

The lodge has 3 bedrooms and the master is for sure the showpiece. We combined textures with metals, fur and wood tones in neutral palettes to complement the rest of the condo.

condoguest

We added ski elements since the location is right at the foot of the Park City Canyons Ski Resort. This bed and nightstand are both from World market .

Updated Master Bedroom

bed2

Some of the biggest changes we made were painting the walls white, updated bedding from West Elm and new bedside table lamps from Target . Subtle touches of pink help to break up all of the white.

bed1

This bench was one of my favorite finds from Overstock – I love the mix of leather, wood and metal. This metal chair with leather pad from Home Decorators was another great addition to add extra seating and more places to set stuff on.

bedroom2

This custom TV stand made by BreinholtDesign fits perfectly on the wall. I added more storage underneath with this basket from Pottery Barn . I love baskets with lids to hide the clutter.

bedroom3

I love switching things around on my dresser to keep things new and fresh. This gold mirror from West Elm was the perfect accent to bring in more hints of gold.

bedroomframes

And finally these polished brass frames from West Elm helped me to personalize the space with one of my favorite quotes and a picture of me and my hubby.

Girls Updated Bedroom

girlsroom

I knew it was time to update my girls room when my toddler kept getting out of her toddler bed to sleep with her big sister- or into our bedroom to complain about something! I remember sharing a bed with my sister when I was young so I figured we’d try a bigger bed for the both of them. It worked!!! Since the day we got the bigger bed it’s been such a huge improvement- she stays in bed, her and her sister get to bond and she even gets excited for bedtime- hallelujah!!!

girlsbed

Choosing the bed frame was key and this one from Overstock didn’t disappoint! It said that it was a dark brown metal on their website (which it is) but really looked black to me which was what I was wanting. I let my 8 year old daughter help with the bedspread decision but we both fell in love with this colorful balloon one from The Land of Nod . This Plum & Bo pom pom duvet is from Urban Outfitters and was a no brainer- I’m obsessed with pom poms and it screamed ‘little girls room’ to me!

girlsbookwall

My girls love to read their books, and with books as cute as these I figured I’d make them a decorative feature in their room. These thin shelves from Ikea are actually picture ledges but work great for books. I love that they are visible and easy to access so the girls think to read them often. The art is a custom piece by Breinholt Design- it couldn’t work better in the space.

girlsdresser3

With limited space in the room I had to choose a dresser that was skinny and wide. This one from West Elm was the perfect fit.

girlsdresser2

I used small details like this vintage tea set and their own artwork to personalize the space.

girlsdressertop

These touches were added by the girls themselves!!!

girlshook

I love having hooks in kid spaces to corral clothing items and stray toys.

girlslamp

And I think gold accents, like this lamp from Target work perfectly with the peaches, pinks and reds and black accents.

girlsbed2

Finally, this black and white rug is by Nate Berkus from Target that I purchased last year. I thought carrying the black and white accents to the floor was the perfect addition to complete their room!

Dressing a Bed

bedroompillowsme

There are tons of ways to display pillows in a bedroom but I’ve narrowed it down to my top 4 most commonly used displays. This look is simple- stacked shams with one accent pillow. Fewer pillows make for less pillows to remove from the bed when getting into it. Simple yet impactful. I change the pillow out with each season so that it coordinates well with the weather outside.

bedroompillowsgirlsThis look uses only shams- no throw pillows. Another simple look that is clean and colorful by adding the pop of color with one of the shams.

bedroompillowserika

This is probably the most common use of bed pillows- Euro size pillows in the background with throw pillows in the foreground. I love the symmetry and use of varied sizes and patterns to give the bed some interest.

bedroom01

This look combines all of the styles- Euro layered in the background with standard shams and a throw pillow in front. Great for a more formal bedroom to add texture and make the bed look full and inviting.

Fall Update in My Home

fallfamilyroom

With each new season I feel compelled to style my home so it coincides inside with what the weather is like outside. For fall, I like to play with textures and bring in darker colors and softer, fluffier fabrics. fallcoffeetable

This fur throw paired with soft and velvety pillows do just that.

I can also never have too many pumpkins or fall florals in my home during this season. The vibrant colors of both add so much to the space. I prefer berries, sticks and leafy florals for the autumn floral arrangement. What’s so great about this foliage is that it lasts so much longer than a more flowery display.fallentry

Darkening my color scheme in the fall is also a must- even if it’s just switching out the art to make it feel a little more like the season.fallcorner

Another corner where softer fabrics add so much to the fall feel. On the ottoman I just added the green velvet pillow to make it more seasonal.fallpianoroom

In this piano room I just changed the lampshade to black, added some leafy florals, a plaid pillow on the bench and some pumpkins on the piano- simple additions without looking too overdone for the season.

So softer textures, darker colors, fall foliage and pumpkins are all you need to make your home feel warm and cozy during the autumn season when you spend so much more time indoors!

Bedroom Update

devroombed

White on white with gold and black accents was the goal in this bedroom make-over. White bed (bedding from West Elm), white walls and white curtains with a hint of black (from Pottery Barn Teen ) were the perfect starting point. This blanket from ZGallerie was just the right addition to add some color, pattern and a touch of gold.

devroomcouch2

This black and white photograph collage was my client’s idea and just the right way to personalize her daughter’s space (couch from Target and rug from West Elm ).

devroomdresser

I love adding rustic elements to warm up a space and break up the starkness of black and white. This dresser from West Elm did just that!

devroomtv

Continuing the color palette of blacks, whites and golds we carried it into the adjoining TV room. This bold rug from Ikea brings the space together perfectly. We flanked the window with shelves which are a great way to make room for displaying personal items and photos.

It’s amazing how a new light can change a space so dramatically! This one from Shades of Light was like the cherry on top of this room.

Touches of pink and fur give this room the feminine touch it needed to feel young and girly for this almost graduated teen.

So happy with the end result of this space and lucky to have clients with such sophisticated palettes!

Warm Gray Paint Colors

paintcolors

I know what you’re thinking- some of these colors look brown or tan- not gray! The secret to finding a warm paint color (that doesn’t give you a purply or blue hue) is to look in the paint section that has tan options in it. Of course every paint color looks different in every space, so depending on the amount of natural light that your space offers and where in your space you’re using it each color could take on a different hue.

What I love about the paint colors above is I’ve never gotten any strange undertones when I’ve used them- they’ve always given me a tried and true warm gray that works perfectly in my client’s spaces. I would always recommend painting a swatch on the wall in a designated space before painting the whole room to be sure that it’s the shade you’re wanting.

Restoration Hardware offers amazing paint choices in any color family. If you’re wanting less of a warm gray they have some great cool gray options as well. Similarly, Benjamin Moore has a fabulous paint selection that caters to every paint need. These 2 stores are my go-tos for most of the paint colors I use in my designs.

Small Bathroom, BIG Changes

YOU HAVE TO SEE THE BEFORE TO APPRECIATE THE AFTER!!beforebathroom1

This bathroom is in my basement and the dark yellow walls were great 7 years ago but I wanted to lighten and brighten the space. The main purpose for the remodel was to get more storage and this birdbath sink didn’t do the job.beforebathroom2

In addition to needing more storage, the floor color was great but functionally the toilet never sat straight on it and the gaps in the wood laminate let water in so there was actually black mold hiding underneath when we tore it up. So new flooring was a must!!bathroom1

I love the white calacatta porcelain tiles we chose that are mostly white with some gray veins running through them. They were such a reasonable price from Lowe’s and we used the 12×12 floor tiles mixed with the smaller 6×6 tiles to give it a little more interest . I kept the same shower curtain but painted the walls white,  a Behr paint color called Irish Mist from homedepot.com . Adding some natural wood elements in the stool and mirror help to break up the stark white throughout the space.bathroom2

The sink, vanity, faucet and glass shelf all came from ikea.com . The rustic wood mirror was a great find from hobbylobby.com . Now our guests will have storage as well as space above the sink to set bathroom items on. We’re so happy with the end result. The choice of white in such a small space really opened it up and brightened the room. Since my husband did all of the work, it only ended up costing around $500 for the whole makeover!!
