Fashion meets decor: Balmain black and white checkers

Beautiful black + white checkered Balmian resort collection
beautiful black + white checkered entryway flooring...
your bold, dramatic and oh so chic look just captivates my heart! 

Lately everywhere I look, I see black and white checkers. Yesterday, I went to a client meeting and walking into the vestibule I stumbled up the most gorgeous black and white checkered floor. Right then  it hit me, this look is so hot right now! Not only am I seeing it everywhere in decor, but on the runways too. I can't wait to see what turns up in these next few weeks as Fashion Week approaches. 
 It's not as if the look is new, I think my grandparents have had floors like this in their kitchen for over 30 years. It really shows how everything old, will once become new again. I love this look so much right now...seriously hoping for some black and white checkers in my new building, wherever that might be. Anyone lucky enough to have this look in their home now???

feminine + fancy floral pants 
feminine and fancy floral sofas...

your charm is my perfect trend for spring! 
A floral sofa is the perfect addition to balance a cold, modern look. It's just so playful and could you not adore?
 I just adore these neon pumps with black floral pants, so charming, no?

fashion meets decor: crushing on acrylics

swagger-iffic acrylic cuffs on the arms 
swagger-iffic acrylic on the legs...
no matter what part of a body you are on, I am wild about you.

The legs on these barstools completely rock my world. I would imagine these in a black faux ostrich leather and these would be magical in a sleek and modern apartment.
Yes this desks legs are very stunning. 
Ashley Stark's old nyc bedroom had this bench that has been a long time fave of mine...
this coffee table is a great mix with wood on the top and acrylic legs on the bottom. It's a perfect mix of earthy and modern. I would use this in a new york minute.
(I found this picture on pinterest with no source, if anybody knows where I can find something like this, please let me know)
I am quite smitten with this cute little heart stool. Would be perfect for the vanity or bathroom...

Fashion meets decor: Pretty Piping

Vibrant + pretty pop of piping on perfect fall coat
Vibrant + pretty pop of piping on sexy seating...
you are so on my radar right now. I am seeing some pretty piping in my future. 

How incredibly tailored does piping make this white sofa look? Piping just refines the seating so well, I can't get enough of it. 

Sometimes that small dose of a contrasting color is just what you need to perk up your home.

Fashion meets decor: inspiration by Katie Ermilio- Spring 2012

I am just loving New York City during this fashion frenzy. It's been such an incredibly fun and exhausting time. The weather is starting to get cool and I'm breaking out the boots, but I am loving how all the fashion shows are showing color for spring. 

So inspired by this Spring 2012 collection by Katie Ermilio. Girl has got some serious feminine wiles. She has me wanting to decorate with gorgeous silk taffeta drapes and bedskirts. I'm dying to add bows to my walls and pleats to my pillows. 
Not to mention the fabulous colors for spring...creamy corals and misty mint greens and chartreuse of course, too! 
I just know the more fabric and femininity, the better!
