Add a Punch of Color with Chartreuse!

A color halfway between yellow and green that was named because of its resemblance to the green color of one of the French liquers called green chartreuse, introduced in 1764. I think this color is becoming one of my top picks for interior decor. These beautiful images below highlight why!

The Bunk Bed Craze!

Have you noticed all the different configurations of bunk beds popping up in design today? Being part of a family with four kids with not many bedrooms, bunk beds were a part of my childhood. I slept on the top bunk while my two younger brothers shared the bottom bunk. That was common back in the day 30 years ago. Finally at 12 years old I graduated to my own room! Bunk beds are not only great looking, but space saving and lots of fun to share with siblings. Always, a riot trying to get us all to sleep. These are some of my most recent favorites, enjoy!

White on White on White Bathrooms

My sister in law is currently designing her new master bath and while we were talking last week about bathrooms, I realized how much I love all white baths. There is a crisp and spa feeling like when I peruse white bathrooms online and since I have been stuck with the green accent color for almost 14years! I can't wait to get back to a neutral palette again. I love the idea of just using pops of color with towels and fresh flowers!

Below are some great examples of what I am talking about......

Mid Century Boys Nursery!

Need ideas for your nursery? My recent design board may help if you are expecting a baby boy! The colors and furniture chosen can be easily used during the transition from infant to toddler. Any thoughts?

2012 Hampton Designer Showhouse!

Designer show homes give local designers the chance to experiment and display their creative talent for us to view. I recently enjoyed the designer show house benefiting our local hospital and it did not disappoint! The 2012 Hampton Designer Showhouse is one of the most anticipated ones in the NY area! My favorite space was designed by Robert Passel and it is a show stopper! Do you agree? The watercolor wall covering is amazing!!!!! The combination of lime green and pink is stunning and it is the perfect mix of traditional design with an eclectic vibe, my favorite!
