Pottery barn never fails to inspire:

Gorgeous foggy blue dining room with medium stained wood furniture. The branches in the white vase is so unruly and adds another dimension of fun to this room!

light blue and white bedroom with wooden bed and nice wall lamps

Super serene bedroom in a light smokey green and cream. Absolutely love the two lamps! Reminds me of bluebells.

A simple dresser is really “dressed up” with a mirror, almost like a vanity.

View more photos from this gorgeous home here! I think the language in the page is Dutch (correct me if I’m wrong) and I can’t read it, but I’m pretty sure Mi Casa is a Belgian architect firm? Whatever they are doing, it looks absolutely fantastic!

Romantic Rustic Bedroom

One of the best ways to bring life to a design is by contrasting materials. A great example can be seen here in Phoebe Howard’s rustic bedroom design:

Pretty Pattern Dining room

Take a look at this multi patterned dining room designed by Sherrill Canet. This room is breaking just about all the rules of pattern combination, and it works surprisingly well!

*

black white and yellow dining room pattern chich

Small, high contrast pattern on both walls and floor. Zebra mirror frame over the fireplace, and pattern-paintings on the wall! The room is accented with yellow, and even the ceiling got that note.

*

Same room with different chairs. I love this horn dining table. Impressing!

Coral Red and White Top Model Home

•September 19, 2009 • 2 Comments

I was really impressed by what the Top Model Home contestants had accomplished on a $5,000 budget, remember we looked at Jill Shevlin’s design entry here. Lets check out some of the other entries, starting with this all-red open solution by interior designer Cindy Blunt:

*

coral red and white contemporary modern open solution living room

Coral red and white open solution accented with dark brown and black.

*

coral red and white living room with black details

Nice subtle elements of African design. Rattan floor vase with a bouquet of..  feathers! So creative!

*

coral red and white living room

1/3 wood paneling is used to separate the dining area from the living room. I really want a rug under the dining furniture in this entry too.. just to define the dining space a bit more. Personal taste maybe.

*

coral red and white open plan solution

Even the table setting matches the room design!

*

coral red and white room

I love the zigzag wallpaper in a few shades lighter than the walls, really adds to the african theme!

*

coral red and white entry hallway

Very pretty coral red hallway!

*

I really love the contrast between the coral red and crisp white,  not to mention the exotic undertones brought in by the rich chocolate brown. Pretty color combo aside, what do you think of  using red throughout an open plan solution like this? Too intense or just right? Click here to cast your vote for your favourite design!
