Check out this amazing sea side retreat.  It seemed like the perfect way to kick off the weekend.

The home was designed by Les Ensembliers, a Quebec based Architecture + Design + Construction firm led by Maxime Vandal and Richard Quellette.

Their attention to detail and ability to maintain design flows is inspiring.

Have a perfect weekend!

Check out this dreamy Victorian Southampton house, renovated to perfection and brought to us by Elle Decor.

I love the original brick fireplace they kept in the kitchen and the endless line of perfect light fixtures throughout the home.

The guest room walls were painted in Benjamin Moore Tudor Brown which is unexpected but works perfectly with the fresh white bedding, lighting, art and accents.

Thank you Elle Decor for letting us feature this beautiful home.

It was fun to get an email from ELLE magazine yesterday with shots of Ginnifer Goodwin’s Los Angeles home, which is featured in their February issue.

Ginnifer’s home seems to have the same fairy-tale romantic vibe as the television series in which she stars, Once Upon A Time.

Head over to Elle to read the full interview and see additional photos of this dreamy house.

We got back yesterday from a fantastic family trip to Lake Tahoe.  Skiing, fresh air and loads of design inspiration got me thinking about the Cabin Style home.

There is definitely a fine line between classy and tacky cabin style, but MWA Architects, based out of Truckee, California, seems understand high quality building and design.  MWA calls itself a casual down to earth company… and as any good snow country firm, notes on their website that they “play hooky on powder days.”  From the looks of these amazing homes they have designed, I can’t image they play hooky often.  MWA creates truly spectacular Cabin Style Homes.

While enjoying the Lonny Magazine’s holiday issue last night, I was completely taken with the featured oceanside residence in the suburbs outside Copenhagen, Denmark.

Renovated by architect Mikael Mammen, the home is simple and modern with a beautiful focus on shades of black.

Time to pull out the Holiday Decor!

I just love the holiday season but the holiday “clutter” can get me a little crazy by the end of December.  I respect the way these rooms embrace the season with a bit of simplicity.

Reece’s Holiday Home | decor

Reece Witherspoon’s Ojai, California home in Elle Décor

Loved seeing Reece Witherspoon’s Ojai, California home in Elle Décor this month.  That pretty little lady seems like such a down-to-earth gem.

Reece worked with the incredibly talented interior designer Kristen Buckingham to create her getaway retreat.  Kristen has an eye for new traditional style with a California twist which was impeccably executed in Reece’s retreat.

The historic home is the work of Wallace Neff, one of my favorite architects basically responsible for developing the distinctive architectural style referred to as “California” style.

Enjoy the photos of the home.  It is such an understated beauty… just like Reece.

I plopped into bed last night thrilled to dig into my new issue of Traditional Home Magazine.  The magazine has gone in such a fresh and chic direction.

I was blown away by the article on the Santa Barbara Design House.  The family room + kitchen were designed by none other than Bravo TV’s very own Million Dollar Decorator, Mary McDonald.

I’m really drawn to dark blue these days so the kitchen island caught my eye.  Her use of accessories and the blue leather occasional chairs have a way of making the space feel informal and a bit rustic, just like Santa Barbara itself.

A huge thank you to Traditional Home for sending over the photographs brilliantly taken by Dominique Vorillon.  Visit his website here: http://www.dominiquevorillon.com.

A few weeks ago I wrote about the Viceroy in Anguilla.  I’m still just dying to visit.  I had the pleasure of being a guest at the Viceroy, Santa Monica this weekend and I snapped a few photos of the property during my stay.  I’m especially inspired by the yellow wall in the library room at the Viceroy, Santa Monica… just loving anything yellow these days.

It should come as no surprise that I spend more time checking out hotel decor photos than photos of the actual hotel amenities.  I’ve visited the Viceroy Palm Springs and the Viceroy Santa Monica and love them both.  It appears legendary designer Kelly Wearstler has also added her personal style and touch to the Viceroy Anguilla.

The Viceroy Anguilla Resort and Private Residences look like a completely unique and chic experience.  The decor is Kelly Wearstler fabulous and relaxation looks like the only thing on the agenda…
