Caroline Lizarraga

Think decorative painting is a thing of the past? Think again folks. I have been converted since decorative artist Caroline Lizarraga emailed us with a link to her portfolio. She loves old world style, and it's no wonder - she trained in Florence. Whether old world or modern, Caroline makes beautiful spaces spectacular. Somewhere in my next home I want very matte black walls done in plaster or to look like plaster such as in the photo above. Gorg!

Love this

This makes me want to grab some paint and a brush and splotch something. Via Simon Wilson.



What a fun way to play with colour! Via Guto Requena


Brilliant paint ideas

My twin sister found these photos on Sköna hem on our lunch break and I had to post them because I think these are absolutely brilliant ways to achieve high impact looks with a little bit of paint. And into my inspiration folder they go!


A budget makeover

Ryuhei sent us the following email: I'm Ryuhei, a young interior designer based in Brooklyn, New York. I recently won Behr's Room for Color 201o contest with the living room from my very first 2BR project. Since the rest of this vintage inspired, yet modern bachelor's pad is now complete and my client has fully settled into the apartment, I took some photos that I would love to share. This budget 2BR makeover was designed for my friend - a typical, young professional who moved into a small pre-war tenement. As a team, we hoped to create an example of how good even an everyday space could look with some effort and creativity. This apartment is such a great example of using colour to provide interest to rather blah spaces (LOVE the living room colour), vintage finds for intrigue and a homey feel, and funky lighting that functions as art. Fab job Ryuhei!
