I have been secretly flirting with Whitney Port’s four-story, Venice loft ever since Domaine Home first published it in January.
Living in an apartment in the city certainly has its advantages, but one of the things I find myself longing for as of late is an outdoor space…a yard, my very own patch of grassy area and some trees. (With so many new developments in my neighborhood, the very few trees we used to have left are now nearly gone.)
Besides being a very comforting and soothing color, helping you relax, when used on your walls navy blue can also add an elegant, dramatic yet welcoming feel to your house. And even though it is a dark color, it somehow manages to still bring life to a room.
Either used to make a statement, on an accent wall or simply all over, this deep blue color looks stunning when contrasted against bright and daring neons such as yellow, orange and green, or more familiar and less adventurous colors such as white, turquoise and other neutral and earthy tones.
With its wide mouth, bulging and spherical body, Chinese ginger jars have become an easy and beautiful way to add color and accessorize our home. Sadly, I only have one in my house, but I certainly hope to get my hands on a few more this year as I think they look great when grouped.
Nowadays, we see ginger jars used as fashionable decorative pieces, converted into lamps and/or flower pots- however, back then, the jar’s purpose was to store and transport ginger, one of the most valuable spices of the time.
This Thanksgiving was a very special one for my husband and I. Not only did we have a number of things to be thankful for, we got to celebrate it in the company of those closest and most intimate to us whom have been by our side through our ups and downs, helping us, supporting us, and challenging us along the way. Making sure we knew we were never alone in the moments we needed them most.
It was a small gathering, just how we like it. And it was a lot of fun.
As the blog continues to evolve and the #thwsecretproject slowly comes to life, the more I daydream of having an actual workspace.
Yesterday, after receiving a text message announcing the arrival of their new collection, I got this sudden urge to make a quick stop at Big Apple to see what new treasures they had brought for us this time. Although it had been a while since my last visit to the store, somehow, they always manage to keep me updated and informed.
My husband and I have finally been contemplating on changing the color of our walls. Although we both know that this is something that can dramatically change the way a room looks and feels, painting our walls is something we never really gave much thought to.
Hi everyone, today I want to share some pretty exciting news with all of you: for a limited time only, Big Apple will be bringing the most exclusive, original and one-of-a-kind oriental rugs to Guatemala! A beautiful and quality rug is not only one of the smartest decor investments you can make but, they also change the entire ambience of the room. They create warmth and add charm, color and personality. Plus, they last a lifetime- and sometimes even longer!
Can you believe Valentine’s Day is ALREADY one week away? Is it me or is this year going by even faster than the last? My goodness, I feel like we’ve barely recovered from the craziness of the Holiday Season and here we are, already searching for gifts for Valentine’s Day. We can never catch a break, can we?
