A designer's dreamy and whimsical Palm Beach apartment!

This beautiful Palm Beach apartment belongs to Bahamas-based designer, Amanda Lindroth. To transform her bland white "empty cube", she enlisted the help of her artist friend, Aldous Bertram and told him to "go to town". The results? An unbelievably show-stopping backdrop! Check this out!

I loved it when two insanely talented people joined forces to create something amazing. This apartment is such example! The interiors feels relaxed, livable and effortlessly chic and the gorgeous trompe l'oeil paintings by Bertram is both a masterpiece and a visual delight. The fancifully painted backdrop not only creates a sense of grandeur, history and whimsy but also draw your eyes to the beautiful features in the room such as the 16-foot ceilings, the massive windows, the mirrors and the door. I am truly inspired by this fresh, dreamy and whimsical Palm Beach apartment, what about you?

Inside a rustic and perfectly curated home in Buckhead!

This beautiful Buckhead house is designed by Eleanor Roper for her longtime friends, the owners of a home furnishings and accessories boutique. The homeowner, Debbie Weitz has a few pieces she wanted to incorporate into the design and a clear vision for the space. With Debbie's classic but clean, restrained but relaxed aesthetic in mind, the house is transformed into a rustic and perfectly curated abode. Let's check out the results!

This gorgeous home is definitely a treasure trove of eclectic finds. By integrating weathered, beat up, rough-hewn and pieces with age, this home feels warm, collected and lived-in. There's so much charm and character in every room no matter where you look. The effortless layering and curated approach with a modern twist is truly admirable and inspirational. Are you a fan of this rustic and collected look as well? Your thoughts?
