"The master bedroom has a very retro feel to it with the pink, tangerine, and lavender colour palette, the paisley linen, and the zigzag Missoni-esque pattern on the floor," says Mona Ross Berman, who designed this New Jersey beach house.
The floor is painted Salmon Berry and White Dove, both by Benjamin Moore.
In this Manhattan apartment’s kitchen, designers William Diamond and Anthony Baratta added a playful citrus pattern to bright blue floors.
"Our clients — a couple in their forties with two little girls — wanted something zippy and up-to-date, but that still cast an admiring eye on the past," says Diamond.
The lacquered chair is from Room, the Saarinen table from Knoll. Microwave and wall oven by Viking.
The circular pattern of these black and white marble floor tiles by Ann Sacks give a graphic punch to this Washington town house by Hillary Thomas and Jeff Lincoln.
"The house makes you want to put on some Chet Baker and get all Mad Men with a pack of cigarettes and a shaker full of gin martinis," says Thomas.
Well Hello October!!! Am I the only one who can't quite believe it is October already?
The weather has been so lovely, sunny & warm lately that I am just not ready for Autumn at all! The leaves have been falling from the trees but the warm sunshiney days have me fooled into thinking it is still summer!
Although I am so not loving the nights drawing in, why does it happen so quickly when in the spring the lighter nights don't arrive as fast on a daily basis?
Oooooh just think too at the end of the month we will be putting the clocks back & then we will really feel the dark nights - ooooohhh I am just not ready, I love the summer days & nights!!!!
Well something we have to look forward to is Halloween! *yay*
Anyhoot Happy October Cutie Pies, hope it is a great month for you all!
In this rustic bathroom, wooden crates have been turned on their side and wall mounted to create bargainous shelving. Try it yourself, but be sure to leave room above them for stacking towels. Use the insides of the boxes to place toiletries and loo rolls so that they're never far when you need them. If you want a more colourful look, try painting the crates in a bright colour, rather than leaving them bare.
To enter you need to pop a photo of your favourite nostalgic item, so here is mine!
My favourite nostalgic item is this super adorable little chair.
It was my Great-Grandmothers nursery chair & it was passed down through the family, it was passed to my Nana first of all & I remember using this at my her house when I was little along with my cousins, it had a little lifting seat so that you could pop a potty underneath but my Granddad nailed it down as our chubby little legs kept getting trapped in it apparently!!!
I used to really love this chair when I was little, there is something special about little things made for children when you are little isn't there, it feels almost magical.
When my Nana passed away in 1998 my Mum got the chair as she was the oldest of 3 girls.
Sadly my Mum passed away in 2011 & so the chair has been passed to me, very gratefully by my Dad & my sisters (even though I'm the youngest of 3 girls!) as I absolutely love, love, love this chair!
We are a good sized family so I am so grateful to have this wonderful heirloom & will always cherish this tiny old chair.
It will always bring me happy memories of my beloved Nana & Mum.
Although they used it in a bathroom & this idea is from the bathroom section of House to Home too but surely they would just get damp in a bathroom, what do you think?
I think this would be better suited for a bedroom or dressing room (if you are lucky enough to have one that is).
It would be so pretty to display your perfume bottles, creams, lotions & jewellery like in the photo.
They have lined it with pretty wallpaper & you could perhaps source some pretty vintage wallpaper for this. It also looks like they have made a little wooden frame to put in the suitcase to make shelves - you may be lucky enough to find an old one that fits a suitcase or cut one down to size then just line with your wallpaper.
Just pop some little hooks on the inside lid of the case to hand jewellery or pretty hearts.
This would look very pretty open on a dressing table wouldn't it?
