Stylish Bar

To create a stylish bar that would be perfect for entertaining guests impressively, we custom designed this built-in cabinet with slate blue lacquer finish and stripe mamara marble countertop.

Below are additional tips on how to get the look.

Cabinet design:

  • A mirrored back and floating glass shelves give a sense of lightness in the design.
  • Decorative pulls add a nice design accent to the function of doors.
  • Cabinet lighting (though not lit here) makes the display feel more special.

 

Styling tips:

  • Arrange stemware and wine bottles like a retail display (I cluster similar items as groups and leave some breathing space between them).
  • Pretty bowls to hold nuts and chocolates.

Creating a Glamorous & Peaceful Master Bedroom!

For a master bedroom in a Newport Coast mansion, we gave it a glamorous and peaceful vibe by layering in shades of grey, taupe and luxurious textures. The crisp white against the tonal colors and the different finishes and textures are important in making this an inviting and stylish room.

Shimmering taupe wallpaper in a color coordinating with the ultrasuede tufted headboard creates a rich visual depth.   While a pair of large large silky shag rugs make the bedroom enticing and cozy.

Version 2

At the window niche overlooking a garden, we felt a custom daybed (designed by Seyie Design) fitting the window niche perfectly would be the best way to enjoy this space. Using a combination of silk and velvet fabrics in different shades of grey created plush seating to enjoy a book or snuggle.

A Shopping Dream!

Christmas arrived a little early this year with a shopping spree gift from Vogue Magazine and Bally, to shop at the newly designed Rodeo Drive boutique in Beverly Hills! Thank you Bally and Vogue Magazine for your generosity, hospitality and amazing time. It was truly a memorable experience to get a private tour of the new boutique and a personalized viewing of the current fashion collection.

I loved the chic shoes, bags, and of course the new boutique design!

Entertaining in Style!

Entertain in style this weekend with a glamorous table setting at your Oscar party! A simple wood branch and moss can be embellished with feathers and flowers to create a dramatic centerpiece. Your decor will look as stunning as the looks on the red carpet!

For the dramatic centerpiece, I used a long branch covered with moss as the base and layered it with flowers, feathers and berries.  To keep it sophisticated still I kept the color scheme of the centerpiece a monochromatic pink.  This way it is fun and frivolous but not tacky.
