A fresh and beautiful Asian-inspired bedroom!

This stunning bedroom is designed by the very talented Tobi Fairley for the Hamptons Showhouse. I hope you enjoy her beautifully designed Asian-inspired bedroom as much as I do!

Tobi Fairley is known for her chic, colorful and cheery designs and this gorgeous bedroom is no exception. The chinoiserie fabric used on the custom headboard is the first thing that caught my eyes but I am in love with every element in this room especially her fresh use of color palette. Your thoughts?

This vibrant condo belongs to Toronto couple Amar and Bhargavi Varma. After getting married, Bhargavi Varma moved into her husband's 1,100-square-foot condo and decided to redecorate. However, the couple has different ideas about design. With the help of designer Montana Burnett, she blended the couple's design aesthetics and create a vibrant space for the homeowners using plenty of color and pattern. Let's check out this fabulous two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo below!

Love the designer's use of ethnic prints and bold colors in this lively home! Are you drawn to any design elements in particular?

Home tour- A designer's rustic and refined mansion in Houston!

Designer Pamela Pierce incorporates the refined, the rustic and many shades of white to update her French-style home. Let's take a tour of her beautiful Houston mansion below!

Although the designer chose to keep her color palette neutral, there is not a dull moment in any of her rooms. In fact, each room has an unexpected piece that stands out. Her restrained use of neutrals throughout her home helps to create flow and a sense of calmness. I really like how the designer keeps her designs fresh and interesting by mixing iconic contemporary pieces with antique furnishings. I am inspired by her gorgeous work, what about you? Do you design your home in a neutral color scheme or otherwise?
