Geometric Sherbert Bathroom Post: Get the Look

Geometric Sherbert Bathroom Post:  Get the Look

Hi all, Kate Cabiltes here!   This bathroom by talented Cali-based design firm Black Lacquer Design is everything. I'm often afraid to experiment with funky wallpapers or paint colors but I believe a bathroom is a great place to start when testing the waters with a hue or print that is out of your comfort zone. The bold use of color and shapes make this truly unique. I admire the focus on blacks, whites and greys paired with a bright pop of citrusy paint on the walls. The tile floors are so much fun and the fact that the sink fixtures are black rather... Read more

Fresh Midcentury Living Room: Get the Look

Fresh Midcentury Living Room:  Get the Look

Hey there, it's Kate Cabiltes! I've had this living room by Melanie Burstin, former design assist of Emily Henderson flagged for quite some time. This beautiful west coast living room already welcomes tons of natural sunlight and I admire what Melanie did to further beautify the space. She achieved a minimalist mid century style that still has significant visual interest through art, texture and shades of neutrals with a few minor pops of color. I especially love the furniture pieces that she chose, those Scandi style chairs and floor lamp being my absolute favorites.  Here's how to get the look in your living room .... Read more

Right now everyone and their mother is into channel tufting.  And I am too.  Actually I have loved channel tufting for at least six years now (take that, trend forecasters!).  For those of you who follow my personal...

Enchanted Nursery: Get the Look

Enchanted Nursery:  Get the Look

Hi all, Kate Cabiltes here!   With my first baby on the way soon I've been mining social media for inspiration most waking hours. This bright space brilliantly pulls elements of nature - trees and sky in the wallpaper, birds in the mobile, even a rainbow on the rug - to put together the ultimate enchanted nursery for a bambino of either gender. As adorable as it is practical, these walls could stay covered in this print for years and pieces like the side table could be repurposed in other rooms or used continuously as the little one grows. Here's how to get the... Read more
