House Tour: Mountain Modern in Park City

This week I spotted this Park City project by Utah based designers Studio McGee, and I am completely in love! It's filled with modern but rustic spaces and loads of gorgeous details and organic textures. I think the use of color is especially beautiful - tons of cream, gray, black, woods and tans offset with just a few key pieces of soft reds, greens and blues. These interiors are both sophisticated and so cozy - a dream!

Insta-Travels: Lago di Como

Hi There! Sorry for my recent silence - we were on a family trip in Lake Como Italy. I am always so inspired by (and in love with) Italy. It was a week filled with sunshine, pasta, family, swimming, gelato, playgrounds and boat rides (and just a little jet lag and chaos too :) One of the those times you are already nostalgic for even before it ends. Here are few of my favorite insta-moments. . .

Hope your week was filled with beautiful moments too!

Bedroom Styling: Long Lumbars

I will admit, I have an obsession with lots of pillows! But sometimes a slightly cleaner look is in order, so lately I have been focusing on a single long lumbar pillow to add a luxe feel. Some clients prefer a bed that is easier to make so this look works beautifully! Lumbars can be simple, chic and effective. Plus the elongated form creates a lovely variety of shapes. 

I usually ask my upholsterer make them up for me but you can also have a go at DIY here if you feel up to the challenge!

Singapore Style: Industrial-Vintage in Tiong Bahru

Life in Singapore means apartment living for many of us, and creating stylish and functional homes in small spaces is a big challenge! This incredible industrial home nails it - it is full of personal style and vintage pieces. The 1930's walk-up apartment is located in the trendy Tiong Bahru neighborhood, and was designed by Singapore architects WY-TO. I love the open layout of this interior, and the use of bold patterns and pops of primary color. The patterned rugs layered on the amazing vintage tile = a big win! Lots of older Tiong Bahru apartments have the original tile work and I loved that they saved it. I also love choice of a shop-style metal gate to act as a stairwell railing - such a great nod to the surrounding neighborhood. 

If you are looking to come visit soon here is a fun guide to the neighborhood! Hope to see you there!

Designer Tip: Faking High Ceilings

Scale is one of the toughest elements to balance within in a space.  Some rooms are blessed with high ceilings and an airy, spacious feel - but if not, well placed window treatments can make all the difference! Even if the windows are low, I like to hang curtain panels very high, often hugging the ceiling  - this might sound unexpected, but the result adds instant height  and a luxe custom feel to the interior! The extra height of the curtains naturally draws your eye upwards and creates an elegant focal point. It also works beautifully with bamboo or roman shades. 

I love tips like these as they cost so little but can have such an impact!
