How to live like a lady in Paris {lee radziwill style}

I love Valentines day. It's all about loving things, especially the home...
There is nothing I love more than loving my home. It's so special to me, achieving domestic bliss is my lifelong purpose. It's so good. So when the NY times decided to grace us with the lovely Parisian lady space of Lee Radziwill, and she happens to be Jackie Kennedy's sister.
I am captivated by her home. White walls (hello, my new obsession) and a bright pink sofa. Two killer elements for a femme space. Not to mention the gorgeous light blue curtains, beautiful chinoiserie chairs, and 11 framed botanical prints on the main wall. It's so bright and fun and perfect for entertaining with 2 seating areas for killer conversations. 
Her bedroom is lovely and simple for deep sleeps and those gigantic topiaries outside on the balcony are insanely good. Love them. Who doesn't love piles and piles of light pink roses mixed with the most gorgeous flowers. One way to enjoy your space, lots and lots of flowers.

Happy Valentines Day. 


We all know by now how much I love a good office space. In fact, more often than not I post on offices because where we work is where we spend so much of our it should be just beautiful! 
My very good friend Bryan P Flynn, is an interior designer from Atlanta who recently moved to LA to work with HGTV Design Star. Word quickly spread and soon enough he scored the gig to design the Kardashian Jenner Communication offices and he knocked it out of the park!

Bryan is so good. Only he would find a fab black glass desk with Hermes orange lining on the inside. Ugh. So good. The wallpaper and fabric work so well together in dark, rich colors too! 
I love this black and white striped wallpaper, a bit irregular which steps up the sophistication factor a little bit. 

I love this office too. The small repeat pattern on the walls gives movement to the space so everything else can be a bit understated. Except for the fabulously rich crocodile patterned rug that is just divine. I love how he mixed the finishes in this room...the black chandelier, a wood desk, clear glass lamps and a mirrored console. 
Such fabulous offices...I want to work here.

Style-icious Sunday...SYDNEY LIVING

Living in the city absolutely has its perks, but these days I am loving the feeling of open windows, life by the pool and fresh fragrances in the air. There is absolutely nothing like it.  It reminds me of my time in Sydney, Australia. It's probably one of my favorite cities in the world. The city life of New York and the beachy vibe like Miami. It's such a killer combo. 
This Sydney home instantly caught my attention. Fashion designer Collette Dinnigan lives the sweet life in this cozy and chic space...

I love the openness of each room. It's almost as if you are living outdoors. Makes me miss my days in southern california too. So dreamy and delightful...

NYC House Tour: Stylish living in Brooklyn

Brooklyn is one of those places that you just can't hate. While I am a total Manhattan kind of girl, Brooklyn does have a small part of my heart. There are so many great restaurants, shops, things to do and see and I do have a heart for the hip people. The best part about Brooklyn...the space! I continually dream of living in a much, much bigger apartment and it seems as if I gave life in Brooklyn an opportunity, that dream just might come true. 
This townhome featured in Architectural Digest totally gives me some inspiration. It's incredibly gorgeous...
Even with white walls the place is loaded with serious style. The artwork all over the walls is a huge part of what makes it so chic. Oh, and of course the pops of turquoise help too,
These deliciously glossy dark brown walls + tiger print chair are majorly FABULOUS! 
How perfect are these red chairs in that garden area? In the springtime I bet this outdoor space is just killer. Wow. Doesn't it just make you want to move to Brooklyn? 
well...not really but at least we can daydream.

Inside the home of Diane Von Furstenberg

What girl isn't inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg, I know I completely am! Being an entrepreneurial woman is powerful. I find myself always looking to women like her to keep me motivated and inspired. My favorite thing to do with people I admire is to see where they live. It gives you a glimpse into their true personality. It's just a small obsession of mine. 
Here architectural digest takes us inside her NYC playhouse. I love it...
Hello greenery...
I love this whole set up. The leopard print carpet, zebra chairs, branch table and of course the Warhol! 
Now this worktable is VERY office space of the day worthy...wouldn't you say?

House Tour: BUSY PHILLIPS at home in InStyle Mag with SPI Design

 I have long been a huge fan of actress Busy Phillips. She is funny, cool and now that I see her home decor, I know she is a girl after my own heart (see above quote). Peep with me, inside her amazing Hollywood Hills home...

The girls from SPI Design (awesome girlfriends of mine from LA) are not only sweet and stylish but really showed their skills and sense of design humor in this home. Notice the big birdcage in the foyer, so chic. Busy definitely got the creme of the crop to decorate her hip LA pad. She lives in the heart of the hills in this pad with her husband and adorable daughter, Birdie. I just can't think of a cuter name...
 Now how glam is this mirrored vanity in her bedroom...very decorista! She doesn't miss a beat with the fur placed perfectly on the ghost chair.
Oh, and I love the tan detail on the white roman shades, too.
The living room is pretty tailored and relaxed but the pretty silk pillows really gives a good pop of fun fabric and color.
 Loving the exotic rug in the kitchen...hello, I can't get away from these bad boys.
 The dining room. SO PRETTY. Love the collection of vintage mirrors on the right. Very clever.

Keri Russell does Brooklyn with style.

I fondly remember Keri Russell as Felicity, one of my favorite tv characters ever. I watched that show religiously. It was the first time I ever thought about living in New York, I was obsessed. It's so incredible now to remember how I felt about NYC back then, and how I can't believe that I am actually living here now. Each time I pass by Dean and Deluca, I totally think of that show. So, as you can imagine, when I saw this spread of her Brooklyn home, I got extremely excited. Boho, eclectic and dreamy, all things that are the epitome of miss keri. I absolutely adore her style, and I also really adore Brooklyn.

moments of domestic bliss with Elizabeth Taylor

My heart broke a bit yesterday morning when I heard the news about Elizabeth Taylor going to God yesterday. Kind of a depressing moment, as she was a huge icon in my life. I watched many moments on tv with montages of her life. It got my trying to imagine the interiors she must have experienced. The decor in her homes must have been magnanimous and the set decor had to be ridiculously wild. So, I wanted to take a moment today and remember her most beautiful moments of domestic bliss...

moments of domestic bliss with Charlotte Ronson {Via Glamour Magazine}

The extremely cute + uber talented fashion designer Charlotte Ronson opens up the doors of her home to Glamour Magazine. Such the quintessential bachelorette pad, she has bright colors and fun patterns all over the place. The photography framed in white throughout...makes me weak in the knees. I absolutely love her style. Oh so Boho and girlie, just like her clothes!
so chic!

the decorista NYC apartment inspiration {alexander wang}

For the time being I am staying with family in NYC and have now made the decision to get my very own apartment in the city. So this weekend I will be prancing merrily around the town looking at real estate...something I truly love. There is so much to consider when hunting for a space (i am open to any and all advice) but of course all I can think about is the inspiration. This alexander wang apartment is so right up my alley. I love the dreamy light walls, and accents of black and white glamour. What girl wouldn't love this high glossy style.

how to decorate like a supermodel...jessica stam for Vogue

I've always adored Jessica Stam and her gorgeous apartment looks. This one might be my favorite right now. I am so inspired by mixing metallics, neutrals and woods. The gorgeous mirrored wall is the perfect way to add drama to any small clever. I am also smitten with the luscious velvet sofa, it has a sheen that looks like metallic magic. Large windows, an adorable ceramic greyhound and modern lucite coffee table complete the sophisticated supermodel look. 

How to decorate like Kelly Wearstler

Aren't we all dying to know? Thanks to my friend over at Sketch42 I found out that Kelly Wearstler has a new blog and the news is spreading fast.
MyVibeMyLife is a collection of the beautiful images she takes in her daily life. I love her first post on how she puts together her ideas. She is so clever, she uses "vibe trays" to organize her thoughts. Brilliant. Check out her new fabulous + fun website! 

Home Tour: Loving Lisa Vanderpump Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

As much as most of us abhor reality shows, I have become addicted to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Tomorrow night is the finale, do you guys watch it too? I love it because for one, I live here and two because of the gorgeous homes these women live in. Lisa Vanderpump is one of the women you just love, you could totally see her as your best friend. 
Her home is absolutely stunning. There are no words for the grand and gorgeous palace she lives in. 
Take a peek at her style. 
Any girl who decorates with beautiful touches of pink, wins my affections. It's over the top glam.
Now for the beautiful master suite...
how fabulous is this closet? I have always dreamed of this...
As much as I love all the pink, I think the other bedrooms are perfectly exquisite.
Now, this part I love...
In a departure from all the feminine decor, they threw a bit of dark, dramatic and masculine for the pool room and I obviously love that they have a purple pool table. So chic and fun.

Now I could get used to lunching on the patio like this....
Stunning! Oh, the delight I would have living here. 

Domestic Bliss... dita von teese at home Instyle Mag Feb 2011

Could you imagine walking in to the Los Angeles home of Dita Von Teese? I wouldn't expect anything other than over the top girlish glamour and charm. I have always liked her look and her effortless Hollywood charm. Her happy pink kitchen is absolutely adorable to me especially the black and white checkered floors. I spot some vintage Barbies in there, too. How about her gorgeous mirrored vanity? What a sweet indulgence...and the perfect touch is the silver + gray wallpaper that graces the bedroom walls. Another fabulous indulgence...the super plush silver padded headboard. At the moment, I think my favorite is her beautiful teal wallpapered room with a gorgeous fireplace. Oh so lush and very much Hollywood glamour! I love this LA Woman.

NYC city girl style...from Harpers Bazaar November 2010

This is the West Village apartment of Vanessa Traina.
Among her list of many credentials, she is a freelance stylist, Louis Vuitton model, Chanel Ambassador and also the daughter of Danielle Steel, the romance writer,
(how fabulous is that?).
It is incredibly chic. I just love taking a peek inside the homes of fabulous supermodels.
Ever so chic and stocked with one-of-a-kind vintage items, this apartment astounds me. I can only dream of walking into a closet like hers full of exotic furs, chanel bags and coveted heels. Then making my way over to my delicious bar cart adorned with vintage Gucci glassware. 
I simply can never get enough of looking at apartments like this.

notice the Vintage Louis Vuitton trunk? Gorgeous!

I am also really digging the traditional look of Emily Procter's living room. So lovely.
