Friday’s Photo:Frank Lloyd Wright Taliesin West

One of the trips we made while in Scottsdale last week was a visit to the Frank Lloyd Wright House called Taliesin West. Here are two interesting factoids about the house I thought were worth sharing.

#1. There is not a single straight wall anywhere on the house. Wright wanted the house to appear as if it was part of the landscape so he took great pains to copy the exact angle of the surrounding mountains.

#2. While Wright was alive there was no glass in any of the windows. Again, he wanted the house to be organic and one with nature. After his passing his wife (who was probably sick and tired of daily sweeping out the desert sand and lizards) put in glass.

If you get a chance to visit I highly recommend it. Wright was quite an interesting fellow and the guided tour was quite enlightening.

have a great weekend!

Who said downsizing has to be boring?  If it’s just the one or two of you isn’t this really all you need? A little table, a few chairs and a fabulous piece of art?

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Friday’s Photo: Headboard alternative

There are so many creative and out of the box ways to create a headboard. This custom painted wood screen is a great way to add color and visual interest to an otherwise neutral and very small bedroom.

Friday’s Photo: watercolor walls

Watercolor walls is a very big trend in interior design right now and this ethereal bedroom from the Holiday House Hampton is one of my favorites. Designed by Jen Going it was inspired by an abstract water color given to her by a friend.

Such a beautiful and unique way to treat an accent wall don’t you think?

Have a great weekend everyone.

Friday’s Photo: A study in turquoise

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!
