Inspired = Lyford Cay Club - Bahamas

I'm smitten with Tom Scheerer's design for the Lyford Cay Club. It delivers so many wonderful elements; pagoda designs, grass cloth, faux bamboo, corals, pink, yellow and chocolate, antique mirrors. etc. etc. Most of Tom's designs use these materials. His work is amazing.
I'm not sure I'll ever make  it past the pink entry gates, but a girl can dream right? A little beach shack in the Bahamas would do. {see Tom's home here - I am in love with this casual beauty}
How amazing is this tented dining area?

And the Lyford Cay inspired Pagoda print by Quadrille {of course}

Room of the week 6.28

It is absolutely gorgeous in Boston today. I love and enjoy every minute of this time of year. 
I'm especially inspired by the shades of summer right now! The image above reminded me of the colors and textures of drift wood and sand. This dining room pulls off a casually, sophisticated look. The chairs, pendants and table all work so well together. Love it.

Inspired - Wood Ceilings

I love the warmth wood ceilings add to a home. I am especially drawn to lighter shades of wood. It's so important not to forget your "fifth" elevation when designing a room! I always address the ceilings when working on client projects.

I love Lee Kleinhelter's simple, graphic spaces. I wonder if she'll be relocating from her city dwellings anytime soon, I always enjoy seeing her latest projects!

Isn't this ceiling gorgeous? House Beautiful

Painting the wood white creates a crisp and clean look!

Room of the Week 7.21.11

I love the pickled walls and floor in this image. Everything about this space conjures up thoughts of lazy summer days away from home! I'm heading out to Nantucket in a couple of weeks! I can hardly wait, but I will, because June just disappeared! I LOVE the summer.
