Happy Friday! It has been a busy week full of excitement and activity. Thank you to everyone who reached out to comment on LDV’s makeover and on Part 1 of my Glamorous Project Reveal earlier this week! Your support and kind words mean so much. For those of you who commented that the new font color was a little difficult to read, I am happy to report that we have darkened the font significantly! In between this flurry of exciting happenings, I also installed the first phase of a project for the loveliest clients. I really feel so lucky to get to do this job and to work with such great people.

With so much going on, I am definitely ready for the weekend so I will keep this short and sweet. This week’s “Fabulous Room” is a beautiful master bathroom by Peter Dunham. I love everything about this space from the furniture-style, tapered legs on the cabinetry, to the paint color he selected for the vanities, and the classic freestanding tub juxtaposed against the warm finish of the wood floors. The sconces and simple grey linen roman shades are lovely as well, but my absolute favorite part of this bathroom is the shower. I am obsessed with the polished nickel frame and fixtures paired with the timeless marble. If you ever find yourself deciding between chrome and polished nickel, go with polished nickel every time! It is much warmer in hue and doesn’t have the blueish undertone of chrome. It looks rich, effortless, and works in any room and with any style. Isn’t this a gorgeous bathroom?

Have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget to enter the Huff Harrington giveaway for your chance to win a stylish pair of lamps!

I am head over heels in love with this AMAZING kitchen by Mick DeGiulio! I absolutely adore the chic color palette. The contrast of the grey island and camel stools looks fantastic against the black and white used in the rest of the room. I also like the fact that they mixed gold and silver hardware. Truth be told, I probably wouldn’t love those metal racks on a daily basis and would opt for a more practical storage solution, but they work with the look of the room.

The kitchen seems like it would the chosen place of a gourmand like Ina Garten or Meryl Streep’s character in It’s Complicated. It looks like the kitchen of a person who actually cooks! Perhaps it’s the addition of the pot rack and scale. Form and function coexist beautifully here. Behind the island, there is a fabulous LaCornue range and you’ll notice that the cabinetry fits the style of the gorgeous French range.

While I usually gravitate towards neutral bedrooms (think soothing grey walls and crisp white linens), this eclectic bedroom by Kathryn Ireland is really speaking to me today. Perhaps it’s the gorgeous, sunny, 75 degree weather we’ve had all week that is making me love the bold colors and ethnic prints used in this unabashedly feminine bedroom. The room is definitely more reminiscent of summer than winter. It looks like the room of a well-traveled woman, which of course inspires me.

This cozy room was photographed by Eric Piasecki and was featured on the cover of the final issue of the now defunct Southern Accents. It is just the kind of room in which I’d like to spend a freezing day like today. The serene palette, beautiful furnishings, and lovely view make the space so welcoming. It would be the perfect spot to read a book or curl up with my laptop to watch a marathon of Showtime’s The Tudors on Netflix! I watched my first episode on Sunday and now I’m hooked!
I hope everyone has a lovely, warm weekend! If you didn’t have a chance to read yesterday’s post, please do when you have a little time. It is filled with some gorgeous images that I can’t stop thinking about!
