What do you think of this gorgeous home? Although his decorating style is not for everyone, his fearless use of bold colors, patterns and textiles is truly admirable. A lot can go wrong with that much colors and patterns but I think he absolutely pulled it off with ease, thanks to his keen sense of style. His abode simply exudes a warm, layered, global chic vibe that I find to be quite charming and delightful. What are your thoughts? Are you drawn to this vibrant home as much as I do?

Favorite room of the week!


This gorgeous Arkansas kitchen is designed by Kimberly Harper for her sister, Deborah who dreamed of a high-functioning cook's kitchen. By incorporating thoughtful design elements such as a concealed refrigerator, freezer drawers, appliance garage, pullout spice rack, etc, this kitchen not only works hard, it exudes a sense of graceful elegance as well. The soft, ethereal blue palette provides a wonderful contrast against the white marble countertop and cast-stone hood. A pair of chandeliers creates a romantic ambiance at night while providing additional illumination in the room. While they are not in use, the chandeliers provide visual interest and an unexpected old world charm to the space. If you noticed, the stools were custom designed with X bases to mimic the design of the upper kitchen cabinets for a pulled together, cohesive look. Such an inspirational space, what's not to love? Your thoughts?

Glitter Sparkle Wallcovering

Glitter Holographic Wallpaper

Known for its superb shimmering quality with a smooth vinyl finish, it is a great option for those who do not want real glitter flakes but to match the effect. The Glitter holographic range is a great choice in salons where it can be easily washable or for home interiors to create a less “blingy” look. This product is also a great alternative at a cheaper price to the sparkle range.

Glitter Stripe Wallpaper

Matching the same finish and color designs as the glitter holographic wallpaper, the stripe acts as a great interior feature with the ability to run this vertically (to give the room a larger feel) or horizontally (to give your interior a wider feel). As a coordinating design you can use this with the glitter holographic range to really make your interiors dazzle and shine.

Glitter Animal Print Wallpaper

The glitter animal print wallpaper design is a premium quality product with a slightly higher price tag than those listed above. This metallic foil on non-woven wallpaper is also smooth to the touch which allows it to be washable.

This fabulous 650-square-foot Florida apartment belongs to textile designer Schuyler Samperton. To inject style and personality into her Miami Beach getaway, vibrant colors, pretty florals and bohemian touches were incorporated into her abode. The results? A fun, tropi-cool home! Let's check it out, shall we?

Such a bright and cheerful home! I love how she creates impact in her small space by installing large scale artwork and floor to ceiling wallpaper in her home. Her home feels layered and collected with a boho chic flair, thanks to her knack for mixing textiles and combining furnishings in different periods and styles. Her beautiful dining room with the whimsical wallpaper and vintage dining set is especially my favorite, what about you?
