Phoebe Howard

I was craving some photos of "pretty", and when I came across the portfolio of designer Phoebe Howard, I immediately thought I scored some pretty. Her style is traditional but with some spaces featuring non-traditional bold colours, and some slightly modern touches to keep things up-to-date. So here's a dose of pretty for ya.

Can I have the bathroom please?! I love everything about it from the ornate mirror, the marble sink to the Italian mosaic tiles. Pure gorgeousness.

Traditional done right! With contemporary touches and lots of light tones. Love it.

Totally in <3 LOVE!

I love Phoebe Howard - check out her husband's work too, James Michael Howard. They own the store together, and work together on this endeavor (he does most of the architectural finish design), but they work independently as designers.

I love the blue green color wash above the tile on the bathroom walls. And the shell mirror has so much character!

I just love that turquoise room!
She has a great eye!

Hi Kim, thanks for the post: in the spring, a young woman's (ok so not-so-young in my case) fancy does turn to pretty! What is it about all the light that makes one crave pinks and greens and yellows and even blues (I am not into blue usually). Every spring I remember how much the first hints of warmth on the air can influence oh so strongly the way we shoose to shape our surroundings. I want to run home and lighten and brighten and freshen.

By the way, I hope that you are enjoying Mexico!

I'm lovin' the little kitchen with the pebble floors. Just way to cute for words. Thanks for sharing.
