Jessica's project #2

Jessica from my previous post took on the design of her friends' home almost 2 years ago and the result is a warm, contemporary vibe that is classic and will stand the test of time. Talk about gorgeous colours! Thanks for sharing Jessica!

** I closed the comments on this post because they were no longer about Jessica's designs but became an excuse for a b*tchfest. Sorry folks, but it seems some just can't play nice, and that ruins it for everyone else.


Jessica's project #1

Jessica wrote us regarding 2 of her interior design projects. She works for a large design firm in LA (but is hoping to go out on her own), is a fellow blogger, and has an Etsy shop. She is quite talented, as you can see by this redo of her former home - a 600 sq. ft. co-op in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. They put alot of hard work into this place and the result is amazing (I love the blue trimmed windows)!

And AFTER!!!

Stay tuned later for another of Jessica's projects!


Maureen's DIY headboard

Project #2 is from Maureen of The Inglenook Decor who was contacted by to create a budget-friendly DIY headboard that they wanted to feature. Maureen started the project by stalking Craigslist for somebody who could make a wood cutout, used leftover chalkboard paint and primer paint, dustless chalk (who knew?!?!) and a favourite vintage silhouette. I LOVE how it turned out. (Photos by Chris, silhouette image courtesy of Susie Harrington of Petite Prints).


Franco's apartment

We've gotten a few reader emails lately with some interior design projects that I wanted to share so I thought I'd feature them all today. This first one comes from Franco. He is a brand manager in São Paulo and wanted to share his new apartment with us. It's actually more like a little peek, but I think the photography is superb so without further ado, welcome to Franco's Brazilian pad.


Quarto & Sala

I've been dealing with a massive headache for about 12 hours now and I'm not sure what or who to blame it on - perhaps the 20 degree celsius drop in temperature overnight, or the 3 times I flew out of bed in the middle of the night at the sounds of a cat barfing (each time a different cat). All this to say I have little motivation for blogging at the moment but I pushed through my misery to put together a selection of photos from this website that in a previous post I refered to as the Brazilian Selby. Enjoy. (And no need to feel sorry for me - I did arrive home to find a little package in the mail which made me feel better).
