Slate and Copper Bathroom: Get the Look

Slate and Copper Bathroom:  Get the Look

Hey, Kate Cabiltes here! It’s no secret that I think every interior designed by Amber Interiors turns to gold and this slate and copper bathroom is my favorite yet from her portfolio of bathrooms. The clean white walls and light wood double vanity (a similar one could be found here) contrast with both the dark hexagon floor and charcoal rectangular wall tiles. The copper sconces are truly unique and carry out the rosy glow of the vanity cherry wood and the Morrocan rug. This is a space that should appeal to many – it’s as modern as it is zen!... Read more

Cozy Enchanted Nursery:  Get the Look

Hello, Kate Cabiltes here! I made a mental note of this nursery space months back after spotting it on My Domaine because I was intrigued by the unconventional beauty of it. While most nurseries are decked out in pastels, this room has a dark hued palette anchored by the deep blue walls and black painted fireplace. It’s truly gender neutral due to its variety of colors and stylish pieces, none of which are overly themed. The mixture of modern pieces (the light fixture) and vintage (the rocking chair) makes this baby’s haven even more interesting and will allow the room... Read more

Trending: Terrazzo

Hi, Kate Cabiltes here! Is it just me or is this terrazzo trend starting to grow on you? I was never too familiar with terrazzo until recently when I’ve seen the look popping up all over the place. Traditional terrazzo is a composite material with chips of quartz, granite, marble, et cetera used for floors and walls. Lately this same look has been created in interiors without the actual materials by way of wallpapers, accent pieces, and furniture. The look is unique and fun, often resembling a confetti-like texture. Terrazzo pieces in your home could easily make a statement by... Read more

Trending:  Caning

Hi, Kate Cabiltes here! You design gurus may have noticed an uptick on social media of furniture shots resembling these banquettes and chairs in this image from the stunning La Rambla Restaurant in Hong Kong. Furniture caning is making a statement in many hot spots and is becoming an increasingly popular option among furniture retailers. This beautiful look you see on chairs, tables and even beds is caning, which applies rattan vine to a piece of furniture. While it is similar to wicker and other natural fibers incorporated into furniture, cane is uniquely rattan, a more solid flexible vine. I... Read more

Chic Communal Kitchen:  Get the Look

Hi, Kate Cabiltes here! Boston-based designer Cecilia of Cecilia Casagrande Interiors designed this kitchen for her own home where she cooks for her children often. I love the sense of community and entertaining that this room fosters. Not only is it open with high ceilings and plenty of floor space but there are multiple spots for eating together while still providing plenty of storage options. There is a modern yet universally appealing look with the texture throughout from the light hardwood floors to the brass light fixtures. Here’s how to get the look in your kitchen… Lindsey Adelman Branching Bubbles... Read more

Transitional Geometric Master:  Get the Look

Hi, it’s Kate Cabiltes! This master bedroom space by Toronto firm Ali Budd Interiors is an excellent example of refined modernism. There are plenty of patterned pieces and modern elements utilized but by limiting the color palette to just a few shades in mostly neutrals it comes across as high end and pleasing to the eye. I always enjoy seeing how designers use the popular Kelly Wearstler Graffito Wallpaper and having it adorn an accent wall in a large bedroom really sets the tone for a contemporary but thoughtful arrangement. Here’s how to get the look in your bedroom… Graffito... Read more

Trending:  Minimalist Pink Bedrooms

Hi, Kate Cabiltes here!  The blush and millennial pink look trending for some time now is still not old in my book! I’ve been drawn to the bevy of pink and blush minimalist bedrooms that have been popping up more across design blogs. A huge fan of the work of designer Sarah Sherman Samuel already, I fell in love instantly with her guest bedroom design for Mandy Moore on MyDomaine. This space is light and simple yet sophisticated and she sourced attainable items but put them together ever so thoughtfully. The beautiful Rhys Bed by Anthropologie is so very dreamy... Read more

April Jess's Picks

Hey All! Where did the time go? It’s April! I’m excited because it’s finally warming up here and gardening weather is in sight.  I’m back with another round-up of things I’m into right now.  First off is the 60’s/70’s modern architecture inspired by Sea Ranch and Fire Island Pines. These are two modernist developments on either coast that really looked to preserve the natural beauty of their sites but also had a fascinating contrast between their architecture and the natural surroundings.  Architect and planner Al Boeke was the visionary behind Sea Ranch and recruited many renowned American architects to design the residences there.
