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!!

Jamie Blakey, Australian fashion designer/founder of One Teaspoon, show’s us her family home which features a simple colour scheme and a treasure-trove of quirky vintage knick-knacks.

“I love the idea of adding softness to a hard space – lots of rugs, cushions and throws,” she says. “Mirrors are my new favourite thing. They’re not just for opening up a space, but for bouncing off different views – like bringing the outside in.

“I’ve found most of my favourite homewares on eBay – I love one-off pieces. Things don’t have to be expensive to be beautiful. And they mean more when you’ve put a bit of love into them.” shoptilyoudrop.com.au

Another interesting interview with the designer found here, on daily imprint.

inspired by: pip & estella

Scrolling through my emails this morning, I came across one from Daily Candy which led me to Pip & Estella

The site is founded by LA-native Sana studied Interior Design at Parsons, The New School in New York City.

“The inspiration for the Pip & Estella boutique comes from a literary classic: the old and worn, yet intriguing and magnetic aesthetic of the Satis House mansion, as described in the Dickens novel, Great Expectations.  In my mind, the aging Satis was a sunlight-filtered world made more lovely by the accumulation of time.

While we do sell decor a la carte, dozens of Pip and Estella “houses” (or curated lot of goods, each with their own identity) have found owners in the U.S. and abroad. I’m happy to say that Pip & Estella is the original place to ‘Buy The House’

At Pip & Estella we travel, scouring markets, shops and estates to bring you unique vintage and antique wares for the home. We’ll create an assortment for you or let you curate your own. One suggestion if we may: decorate boldly.”

The images come from her site here; 1, 2, 3, & 4

Now, it’s time for some yoga… remember Friday’s inspiration ; )
