Favorite room of the week!

This living room screams Palm Beach chic and I love every inch of it! Designed by Lance Jackson and David Ecton, I am absolutely swooning over the fun and classic preppy vibe. It is modern and refreshing. Most importantly, no details are overlooked. I am particularly drawn to the exciting color palette, those fabulous painted ceiling, the ribbon-trimmed curtains and the overall styling! Are you a fan of this gorgeous room as well?

As many as one in three of us will have some issues sleeping in our lifetime. Creating a relaxing sleeping environment is the most effective way to avoid such problems.

Adding some stylish silk touches to your bedroom can be a great way to improve both the appearance and comfort. Silk is not only the ultimate in luxury; it is naturally hypoallergenic, helps regulate body temperature and is renowned for its health giving benefits for the skin and hair.

Silk Bedding, pillows, pillowcases, duvets and mattress toppers will offer you year round comfort with a touch of class.  Due to it’s heat conducting properties, silk adjusts to the individuals body temperate. Resistance to dust mites and being hypoallergenic also adds to the practicalities.

Silk Nightwear

Often when sleeping, individuals can become restless due to the clothing they are wearing. This could be due to becoming too hot wearing fleece type pyjamas, or equally becoming too cold as a result of thin material.

Home tour- A small yet stylish Brooklyn apartment!

Check out this 700-square-foot eclectic apartment in Brooklyn below!

Layered, warm and eclectic, this apartment oozes style and personality! I like how the homeowner picked a bold color as the focal wall and keep the rest of her furnishings neutral and minimal so each individual pieces shine. I love her style and design approach, what about you? Is there anything you like about this fabulous apartment as well?

Cool designer alert- Cynthia Collins!

Meet Cynthia Collins, a Dallas-based designer. In 1992, she established Collins Interiors, a small firm specializing in full-scale residential interior design. Her approach in design is balancing a refined and sophisticated taste within every space. Let's take a look at her beautiful designs below!

The designer: Cynthia Collins

Her work is elegant and timeless with a modern sensibility, what's not to love? I am particularly drawn to the way she pairs traditional elements with contemporary furnishings and blends hard metals with wood pieces to create a room that feels warm, current, collected and fresh at the same time. Are you inspired by her work too? Which space is your favorite?
