Eclectic clients breed unconventional spaces

When the folks of cityhomeCOLLECTIVE were asked by their quirky clients (whom they had sold this house to) for help with decorating their living room, dining room and patio, they went all out. I freaking love every bit of this transformation. GO BOLD OR GO HOME! The theme was sharp, but creative…nothing too precious. A game of indoor/outdoor basketball is as common as a glass of wine in the open air. We went to work in attempting to mirror this eclectic gang's vibe with bold colors and textures: a hot pink and grey chair in silk and bouclé (think: Chanel suit), black walls with gold metallic niches, a teal over-dyed rug, and rich green, velvet floor-to-ceiling curtains. A thousand statement details that amalgamated flawlessly. Ever aware of the importance of juxtaposing pieces, we employed graphic black and white wallpaper and brass accents, and used green and pink neon rods to create a piece above the dining table. And–in what would eventually become a bit of an obsession for us as the project progressed–we got pillows. Pillows on pillows, and the crazier the better (ie. Bill Murray in a general's coat). Outside it's just as funky and totally awesome. 

Make sure you spot the dog before going further :)

A couple more projects by Noz Design

This chic kitchen needs to go in all of your inspiration folders. A lesson on how to turn a boring, outdated kitchen into extraordinary. The living/dining rooms in the second project are fun, stylish spaces with bold pattern and colour accents. Ping pong or dinner? You decide. Via Noz Design.

A kitchen remodel in white

Yet another brilliant remodel by Studio McGee. This one I am completely envious of. This kitchen is so bright and the timeless and the attention to detail is spot on. Brass accents bring it to another level of fabulousness. I am envious of the space - to fit an island with bar stools, a little entryway to store shoes and coats, a built-in desk area and laundry! OMG! My kitchen is the size of the average bathroom. Yes, this kitchen would be a dream come true.

In my dreams

In my dreams I live in a farmhouse surrounded by vineyards. It's a simple but oh so stylish pile. Rustic yet sophisticated, traditional yet modern, surrounded by friends and family, celebrating the beauty in life. My dreams might just look a little like Healdsburg Ranch by San Francisco-based design firm Jute.

When eclectic is hot

This is a prime example of eclectic décor that is totally random yet perfectly executed to create chic, sexy rooms. This Madrid apartment was featured in the latest issue of Nuevo Estilo (AGH I could not find this mag while I was in Puerto Vallarta!) and was designed by Isabel López-Quesada. This talented lady does not follow rules and trends, and I admire her for that. The dining room above is my favourite space - SO HOT!!! (Check out Jo's past features of Isabel's work here, here and here)
