in your space: decorated by cristina ramos

The style is very eclectic and is influenced by very different cultural sources. The furniture is almost all vintage, from the 40s and 70s, and have remained original structural elements.

A Maximum warmth. Achieved with lighting that creates intimate and cozy. There’s only overhead light in the dining room in the rest of the house has been used indirectly with floor lamps and table.

Playing with contrasts. In some rooms intentionally breaks the calm atmosphere
provided by the soft colors that add drama with elements such as the wallpaper in the dining room dark tones. Nuevo-Estilo.es

There is just some much I love about Cristina Ramos‘ style and eye for design. The 70s influence, art deco, neo-classicism, bohemian style, and industrial style are all combined. My favorite parts include, but are not limited to…

– the tiled, pattered floors
– mix & match style
– neon
– the retro vibe
– bold colours

And the list goes on!!

in your space: heidi middleton

“We drive further up the hill until we find an unassuming narrow driveway with shared parking spaces. I’m happy to get out of the car. One hour isn’t  long but I want to be in the sun! Heidi has set the table on the patio with a light lunch: goat cheese, olives, cured trout. Classical music is playing softly over the speakers. “The kids are at the beach,” she explains when I tell her how peaceful it is. “Would you like a glass of wine?” she inquires. I nod, taking in my new surroundings. It’s a hot day and I’m in blissful heavens: This is my dream house. Built in the 1940s and at one point occupied by a flamboyant gay fashion designer and a celebrated Australian painter, the house resembles an Italian terraced villa. The entire front of the house facing the bay is open, basking in sunlight throughout the day and displaying breathtaking sunsets at dusk. The walls are covered in smooth white stucco and the windows kept in their original floor to ceiling frames. “The house has a colorful history,” begins Heidi. “We have slowly been ‘chipping away at the diamond’ with small to medium sized renovations and now have plans at council to make some significant changes like adding another story to the top level. I have designed a large room/walk-in closet as part of the new floor.””

the french quarter

“For their first US outpost, Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, creators of the hybrid music and fashion label Kitsuné, chose to drop their bags at the new Nomad hotel. With the opening of the boutique (not to mention a much raved-about restaurant), the hotel has converted a lonely corner of Broadway to a white-hot destination for shopping.        

More than its size, Maison Kitsuné wows with its Parisian splendor — parquet floors, polished marble, elaborate moldings — courtesy of the imagination of designer Anna Vignale and the New York architecture firm TBD. Its a continuation of the Francophile feel of the hotel, with interiors by Jacques García and art curated by Be-Poles. 

Ah yes, and the clothing. The clothing! The house label is marked by a rather lithe-looking fox on the move — kitsuné is Japanese for fox — and is nothing if not obsessive when it comes to detail (which shoppers should expect to see reflected on the price tag): cashmere is from Scotland, denim from Japan, and cotton from Oxford. Alongside is a display of friends of the Kitsuné family: Michel Vivien, Monocle, Aesop, J.M. Weston. And this shopping experience comes with one of the best soundtracks in town. Loaëc, ex-manager of Daft Punk, flaunts his talent for uncovering fresh talent — Dwntwn, Childish Gambino, Heartsrevolution, etc — on the Kitsuné America compilation. Rock on.” Tablethotels.com

project re-decorate

We’ve recently got back into a ‘re-decorate phase’. A home, to me, is more of a work in progress. You grow, your home grows. It evolves as your tastes change. Which, for some, may happen quite a lot! I am pretty good about making smart home decor purchases but sometimes it’s out with the old and in with the new! There are a few things that need spiffing up, and a few pics above of new items that are part of the plan;

1. Personal pic taken from the rooftop of Hotel V Vejer in Andalucía
2. Print on fabric from Blackbird Vintage in the Distillery District
3. Palladian Mirror from Restoration Hardware
4. Crystal knob for the bathroom cabinet from Home Depot

Stayed tuned for more ; )
