Modern Blue Kitchen: Get the Look

Modern Blue Kitchen:  Get the Look

Hi, Kate Cabiltes here! There is so much that I love about this kitchen by Bay Area design firm Homework spotted on Domino. I've become a huge fan of mixing metals just and this space does so by combining rose gold, brass and chrome. And while the neutral kitchens trending lately are just lovely, there is something to be said about the perfect shade of inky blue coating your cabinetry. The white and grey geometric floor tiles play off of the calcutta marble backsplash which along with the Tom Dixon pendant trio are the ultimate statement piece. Here's how to get the look in...

Whimsical Midcentury Bedroom:  Get the Look

Hey it's Kate Cabiltes! I've had Mindy Kaling's apartment makeover by One Kings Lane flagged for some time now. Her Nolita place is furnished with predominantly mid century pieces and filled with lots of bohemian textures and prints. I especially love her master bedroom which has classic white walls and conservative white bedding and roman shades. It is filled in with layers of texture through the rug, ottomans, pillows and throws. This space oozes personality yet still creates a relaxing bedroom sanctuary. Here's how to get the look in your bedroom... "Summer Skies" Wall Art via Minted Kate Nickel Nail Headboard via Z Gallerie Josie... Read more

Colored Velvets:  Get the Look

Hey all, Kate Cabiltes here!   I recently came across the home tour of Sezane founder Morgane Sezalory on Coco Kelley and have been obsessed with her French abode ever since. So much so that I've sought out other features on her space including The Glitter Guide and Cup of Jo. I love this creative's brilliant use of jewel tone color, specifically using the material velvet - the unexpected palette of green and pink throughout is to die for. Not to mention her eye for composition and detail is super impressive.  This palette carries through the various rooms of her home. The dining room and living rooms are my... Read more

Modern Neutral Dining Room:  Get the Look

Hi all, it's Kate Cabiltes!   Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving! Entertaining this year left me feeling inspired by different styles of dining rooms and this modern neutral dining room is a recent fave. An eggshell walled, wooden floored blank slate, it is thoughtfully filled with classic furniture including my favorite Saarinen tulip base table. Accents are kept simple and subdued however the minimalist style allows each piece the opportunity to make a statement. I also admire the clever use of shapes and textures throughout!     Here's how to get the look in your dining room...     Bronwen Sleigh... Read more

Hello! It's Kate Cabiltes counting down the days until one of my fave holidays of the year - Thanksgiving!   With this being my first year to host the beloved holiday I've been on the hunt for ideal table scapes to charm my guests with. A mixture of modern and organic elements is ideal to me so this year I've been inspired by brass and glass accents, pops of jewel toned color through and lots of greens! The image below by the talented Athena Calderone of Eyeswoon has me filled with inspiration! While magnolias and pine branches will be on my list next month, for November I've found so... Read more
