Happy Friday! Today I want to share this beach inspired turquoise study from the Holiday House Hampton Show House.

This small study just off the main living room was designed by Bjornen Design. The designer said since the Hamptons are all about the beach and horses, the sea horse lamp was his inspiration and starting point for the whole room. I love the turquoise and sandy beige color palette and the drift wood like coffee table. The wall paper and carpet reference the ripples of the ocean waves and the beach inspired accessories like the sea glass balls and the nautilus fossil remind you this is the Hamptons.
My favorite part of the room though are the black and white photos which ground the room and keep it from looking too themed.
This room was one of my favorites. What do you think?
If you ever get a chance to visit a Christopher Guy show room be sure to bring your camera. The products are beyond beautiful and the way they set up their show rooms is like visiting an art gallery.

When I spotted this silver mirror and two coral wall scones against the purpley-black wall I just about died! I would LOVE this in a powder room or dining room for a bit of glamour or even in the entryway. A work of art don’t you think?
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
There is an expression attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson that goes, “build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door”. Well this past May while touring the ICFF on BlogTourNYC, I saw what I thought was a better mouse trap….except it was a bird feeder.

So simple and beautiful…a work of art, but oh so clever. Striped down to the bare essentials, these feeders are so perfectly balanced that if a pesky squirrel even tries to hop on he/she will slide right off. Genius don’t you think?
Spotted at the Norway pavilion at The International Contemporary Furniture fair.
Recently I was reading that eyes are trending. Yes… eyes… as in human eyes. Then not long after, while touring the newly renovated The printing House while on BlogTourNYC, I saw this AMAZING art installation by artist Sean Mellyn. Made from old eye charts Sean has created the perfect focal point for Scott Sander’s model unit.

I LOVE it! How about you?
Have a great weekend everyone and keep your “eyes” open for this hot new trend!
I’ve never been a big fan of caramel color walls until I toured the recently renovated The printing House in New York City. It is a model unit designed by Scott Sanders. The rich caramel colored wall, a sculptural chair with a caramel, black and white seat and a stunning black and white portrait are pure perfection don’t you think?
Next week I’ll be showing more images from this inspiring space designed by Scott with more stunning art work and one very unique piece… Stay tuned!
I want to wish all my American friends a Happy 4th of July and share an image taken in Times Square while on BlogTourNYC. I took this out the window of a cab and the neon sign was actually advertising a Broadway show. At the exact moment I clicked the shutter the sign changed to an American flag. So appropriate don’t you think?
