Back from the beach… and some pretty pics

I’m back from the beach… barely.  Here are some random pretties to try to make up for my absence.

hand painted walls

Hand painted wallpaper is one of the most special ways to decorate a home.  We do not get to use hand painted wallpaper in our client’s homes very often, but when we do it’s very exciting and always turns out absolutely gorgeous.  I love the look, but it is usually a little too formal for my taste… But it doesn’t always have to be formal.  You will see in these pictures that some of these rooms maintain a casual, relaxed look despite the expensive/unique wall treatments.

Absolutely love this hand painted fish wallpaper.  Talk about casual!  Such a unique take on hand painted wallpaper.  It would be so pretty in a lake house.

Big Bold Stripes

This post is dedicated to my best friend Michelle, who loves big bold stripes – especially in black and white.  But who doesn’t love the look of stripes?  The bigger the better, in my opinion.  And the black and white might be my favorite too.  I will never get tired of stripes.  They’re just so classic.

Malachite

It probably comes as no surprise to anyone that I love malachite.  Mostly because it’s my favorite shade of Emerald green.  But I also love that vein-y marble look.   People seem to be using it in all sorts of ways.  Here are a few pictures I’ve gathered of the many different uses of a [faux] malachite finish – everything from iphone covers to wallpaper!  What do yall think?  Do you love malachite too?

Picture this… the cutest nursery

It seems like so many people are getting pregnant at the exact same time… now.  We’re literally working on three different nurseries at the moment.  But I had to share with you the scheme for the cutest nursery ever.

Elephants + blue & white + kelly green accents = ADORABLENESS

Starting with Lulu DK for Schumacher “Parade” fabric

Add lots and LOTS of Brunschwig & Fils’ “Les Touches” in Blue

An accent wall featuring a blue and white trellis wallpaper… Probably one of these adorable Thibaut designs…

The amazing Madeline Weinrib’s Ziggy chevron rug in what color?  You guessed it, BLUE.

Then top it off with (my favorite part, of course) Kelly Green accents like this Shades of Light bamboo floor lamp

Nifty Nailheads

Nailheads are like jewelry for furniture.  They come in all different shapes, sizes, and finishes…

source

 

A few furniture pieces that utilize nailheads…

 

Arteriors‘ Tennyson bench

 

 

The Marcello barstool from Ballard Design is one of Mallory Mathison Inc.‘s favorite barstools.  The upholstered arms make it feel like a comfortable club chair.  And those large nailheads on the side of the arms add the perfect finishing touch. And it’s on sale right now!

 

 

Bungalow 5’s Marco side table would look great in the right setting.  Like a kid’s room or playroom.  Also available in black.

 

 

If you reallyyy love nailheads, you’ll probably like Bernhardt’s Cabrillo Nailhead Chest… A little too funky for me though.

 

 

I would like Noir’s Bacalle ottoman a lot more if it wasn’t so dark.

 

  

Nailheads should be essential on a simple, solid headboard.  Wisteria doubled the bling with two rows of nailheads on their Queen Anne headboard.

 

And now for some pinterest pictures that display good use of nailheads…

I absolutely love the Greek Key design of the nailheads on this banquette in Traditional Home.

[Nathan Schroder] LOVE the upholstered drawer fronts outlined with nailheads on these nightstands.  Although I’m a little distracted by that fabulous green lamp!

Notice the alternating large and small nailheads on this leather stool.  And they are spaced out.  The possibilities are endless.  Gina Berschneider red leather ottoman via One Kings Lane.

Lotus Love

I think I’ve mentioned in a previous post that my new obsession is this Galbraith & Paul wallpaper:

 

It is called “Lotus” and the colorway pictured above is Aqua.  I adore it.  But this pattern is not the only chic pattern that I love from Galbraith & Paul…

 

 

“Birds” is adorable too!!  And these patterns come in multiple colorways!    Color Sage is pictured above and color Ocean is below – and that’s just 2 of the 10 colorways.  How cute?!  How could I ever choose????

 

 

Did I mention that they come in fabrics too?  Ugh, I better start saving $$$!!!  Or else I’ll just drool over these pictures until something else steals my heart away.

Yep, that is Lotus in Pink and Orange (“Tangerine”).  Now where do I get the dress to match? 

 

How perfect are these colors for summer???

Wallcoverings: Grasscloth

via The Handmade Home

 

Grasscloth is a great way to add texture/detail to walls without having to buy a funky, colorful wallpaper that you will get tired of after a couple of years.  I love that it is made of grass, a natural fiber, because it adds a simple, rustic feel to a room.  It’s natural! (kind of)
