makin’ it – this room, that tile

makin' it - this room, that turquoise Moroccan tile

The color of deep water. I love the color, the texture, and the pattern of this tile in the entryway at the home of François Gilles in Morocco.

looker – unabashedly gold

Gold modern interior designIt may be of no surprise that I love gold, though I am not sure that I have flexed my goldfinger accordingly thus far. Well I do, and when I saw this staircase which descends into a mod gold wonderland of a room I knew I had to share it, and share how to get the look. If you are going to go unabashedly gold there are a few pointers which you can take from this room. First, pick one or two key design features and make your statement with those. Here the spectacular staircase and the shiny mod chair take the forefront and shine, literally. Don’t overwhelm the room with too many design features – too much of a good thing is not a good thing. Second, as you would play with different tones of a hue, with gold, play with different textures to make the most of it. The bold shine of the chair is offset by the richer textured and gold leafed ceiling and walls. This depth balances the shine so that the gold doesn’t overwhelm. Lastly, stick with clean lines. With the intensity and shine of gold, your eye will move around the room. Help direct the attention by using focused, clean features. An all-gold color palette is a bold move, make the most of it by making bold choices. Pick a few great things and stick to those, don’t muddy the look with too much. This is one of the most important pointers for any design project. So if you are going to go for it, here are a few pieces that will help you get the look:

boats + bubbles

…second only to my favorite combo of boats and bubbly. This space transports me. I love the muraled wall, especially in the monochromatic blue. It’s a great idea with great impact. It creates a sense of space – even if you don’t have any. The bathtub is made by the London-based firm Drummonds who puts a contemporary spin on the freestanding tub, finishing them with shiny, bright hues – Mrs. Peacock is the color shown here, and The Clyde is the tub.
Not to be missed are The Usk, The Torridge, The Tay, and The Nith.

yes please – natural pool

I love this natural pool I found on Marie-Claire Maison. The image is so ethereal and other-worldly. So Midsummer Night’s dreamy… and exactly where I would like to be. Love the candles, the grouping of sticks, the raw tiles, the natural water which is such a deep, restful color, and the pillowed and bolstered couch. So serene and rejuvenating… yes, please.
