Snapshot #10: Mallory Page

I recently discovered this artist & the amount of delicious pieces I have featured below should tell you how much I’m loving it right now.

The technique alone is fascinating with multiple misty, dripping layers. Mallory Page somehow achieves a beautiful balance of a translucent & ethereal piece with striking saturated colors with mixed medias on canvas. Check some of these stunning treats out below!

This Table Needs to be in my Loft

Well, I am back to work after being out of the office a couple days on vacation last week. This morning I had to do that awful task of sorting through those emails that have piled up, but surprisingly it went pretty fast until one email derailed me for a minute. I fell madly in love with this table that was featured in the recent Architectural Digest issue for July/August. I just had to share it with everyone!

This beautiful table called The Barnsley Table from Bernhardt Interiors has a patterned bone inlay to with a black ebonized finish. Can you say breathtaking?! It would look great with all the colors in my loft & would be a great contrast with my modern Panton Chairs...see them here.

I have to say thank you to our local Bernhardt representative, Meredith, who sent me the email! Don't be surprised if I post a follow up post with it in my loft!

peace & love,

Trending: The Bold Racing Stripe


It's incredible how adding one big fat stripe can instantly modernize a super traditional piece of furniture, or bring interest to a lackluster one.

I've been finding myself drawn to this look more & more lately for those very reasons, especially when done in stark black & white or bold global patterns! I might have to go get some painters tape & start priming my boyfriend's dresser this weekend!

Color Inspiration: add a pop at your door!

Adding a bright pop of colour to just the inside edge of a door seems like the easiest & most simple idea to add color into your room without going overboard- so simple that I keep on saying to myself, "Why didn't I think of that?!"

I always love a hint of unexpected color & this edge detail just so happens to be perfect.
I'm in love & thinking I might be tackling every door in my home this weekend. Who else has seen this colorful detail before?

Seems like reds, pinks & oranges are the way people are going, but I think this could be awesome in chartreuse or teal. The best part is that it would be an absolute cinch to pull off & to get rid of the minute you got tired of it !
So what do you think? Are you loving this bold stroke as much as I am?
peace & love,
