May Favorites for Outdoor Living




The personality and feel of every home whether it’s contemporary, modern or traditional, is seriously influenced by its relationship with it’s exterior. Single family residential projects have an indoor-outdoor connection that is easier to accomplish.  




The key to a successful design project is knowing where you want to end up before you start out. So, make sure that your interior design and exterior plans match your tastes and ultimately your personality.







It’s important  to remember when designing your outdoor living space - to blend the look and feel of your home’s interior into the exterior.
Whether you are buying a home, renovating, have a small city garden or a balcony; you should consider enhancing your outside living area. Again, it will allow you to appreciate the outdoors; the beautiful flowers, greenery or views in a comfortable setting. 






Always decorate your outdoor space with a casual and comfortable feel. 
The key to creating a good outdoor space -- is making sure the environment allows for relaxation and enjoyment.






Remember “less is more”. Refer to my previous posts on doors, lighting, color palette, feng shui, previous outdoor posts and my many interior design posts, (bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchens, dining rooms, window treatments, flooring, and so much more).

Interior Designing in Balance with the Environment


Celebrate the slowness of life and the power of white – Susanna Cots



When it comes to modern interior design, white seems to be a constant. Because it’s really a non-color and it basically can be matched with anything else, this is a common choice, especially for the minimalist decors. Interior designer Susanna Cots uses white as her basic color in most of her projects.



Susanna Cots, is a Spanish interior designer, who has designed many interiors and exteriors. Her work really excites and engerizes me. 




White as the sum of all the colors of light is the starting point of her projects.



The warmth of a home is achieved by combining soft colours and noble materials. Wood has the power to create an atmosphere both strong and emotional.  Original stone is part of the essence of this home below, and strengthens the bridge between past and present.




White is the main focus with soft brushstrokes of serenity and calm, which  always makes guests feel at home and residents feel at peace.

POST 100: Favorite Kitchen Interiors







To celebrate my 100th post today, I am sharing some of my most recent favorite kitchen finds. Always remember that the kitchen is the heart of your home! View and enjoy.



It might seem like common sense, but the best thing you can do before embarking on a kitchen remodel is step back and decide on your overall style vision. Committing to a clear aesthetic will help you avoid making mistakes. To maintain this vision throughout your project, begin with the end goal in mind: what is the feeling you want to evoke when you enter your kitchen? Write down some words that express your desired look; like sleek, chic, country, industrial, urban, casual, formal, farmhouse, or eclectic. Refer to this list whenever you’re making design decisions or choosing products and materials; this will keep you focused.
