Chic Rainy Day

Rain and chic are two words that are not usually found in the same sentence unless one dares to wear a pencil skirt and high heels to go out and face this showery, showery day.


Oh well, at least I can always have my espresso.

As of Yesterday

Yesterday I had the pleasure to be a part of "What's New/What's Next" and had a great time. I was kindly invited by Elle Decor to attend a presentation of their new online 'Designer's Registry', which "is an online community and interactive database that connects design professionals with potential clients worldwide." Next, I went to Sanford Hall, the showroom I was assigned, which has a great selection of wall to wall carpets and area rugs. Among the newest rugs, below are a few images of my favorites. These 100% wool area rugs are made in India and/or Spain. SH is located on the 4th floor of NYDC, Suite 400.



Then I went straight to Ted Boerner New York showroom on the fifth floor, where according to a friend of mine, were the most interesting wallpapers worthy to be seen. And God was she right. Apart from their own selection of classic furniture, they also carry Tracy Kendall's eccentrically cool line of wallpaper. Some of her unique and innovative wallpapers have embellished the walls of such museums as the likes of the Cooper Hewitt in NYC.


The glow reflected by the buttons against the light reminds me somehow of a Moroccan wedding blanket. Below is another really cool one that portrays a post-it wall.




This last wallpaper has huge playful sequins of different colors which also comes in other colors. I wonder how cool this wallpaper would look in a girl's bedroom. As any other design aficionado I had a fantastic time yesterday at the NYDC event, but the most important part of it was to get to meet the people who came and stopped by to say hello. Thank you to those who made my day.

Carry it on




The boots are lined up, the cape is neatly folded awaiting on the couch and the purse ready to be picked up on the way out. Have a boots-on-ready week, but remember... come back.

Fall inspired interiors

I refuse to make my home look like a pumpkin station in order to make it look more appropriate looking for Autumn. I love how the interiors in these images below give that understated feeling of warmth and nostalgia without screaming Autumn. It's amazing how simple things such as exposed wood, touches of browns, leather furniture, a cashmere blanket or pillow could also bring the Fall vibe inside a home.

Mokum

I came across this beautiful new line of fabric by Mokum a while back ago via Interior Design Magazine and loved their texture and patterns so much that decided to save them to post them later. But of course, I forgot about them until last night that I came across it again. The line called Moderne is inspired by the eclecticism of the 1920's hence the elegant and glamorous campaign. For those of you who are interested in updating your homes for the cold seasons to come the Moderne selection is a great option.

A perfect Fall Interior


I covet summer and although this past Saturday was a gorgeous day in the city; today Sunday, is a complete different story. It's looking and feeling a lot more like fall. I'm not complaining here. The fall season certainly has its beauty. It's the neither-hot-nor-cold temperatures that unnerve me. When I found these beautiful images through SDA Decoration, made me want to own a winter cottage with timber paneled walls to keep the warm feeling of nature indoors throughout fall and winter. Each panel measures 50 by 50 in case one of you is interested.

The return

There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.
Celia Thaxter.

The best does not last forever. Unfortunately. These past two weeks We spent the most beautiful and memorable family vacation ever. We spent the most amazing days discovering the magic of Istanbul, to then go sailing on the Aegian and Mediterranean coast. Thank you to those wonderful readers who are still visiting this blog. I promise to be back blogging soon and perhaps even post some photos of our trip.
