How to Decorate a TV Wall

Communal areas of the home such as the den or living room should be a comfortable place where everyone in the family can relax. Most times that includes having a television in the room. No matter how thin the televisions have become, they don’t always easily fit into a cohesive design. After meeting a client with this very dilemma, I have been researching ways in incorporate a television into the design so the television seems to be part of the room and not a mismatched addition. Take a look at these inspiring TV walls. Which is your favorite?

Masculine Interiors

I met with a new client last night. He is a mid-30’s Wall Street bachelor. I am very excited to start the design of this apartment as it is a “carte blanche,” plus he has some great bones to work with in the architecture. The apartment has incredibly high ceilings with original molding AND a fireplace! My initial thoughts are to go with a rustic, masculine yet refined concept. I think leather, dark wood and opulent touches would take this bachelor pad to a new level. This morning I have been searching for inspiration. Here are some great concept photos I have come up with so far.

Inspiring Entryways

Big or small, elaborate or minimalistic, the entryway serves in important function. It welcomes you into the home and sets the stage for the interior spaces that will soon be experienced. Much like the opening chapter of a novel, the foyer helps to establish the story soon to unfold. The entryway also serves another purpose – to act as a threshold between the exterior and interior. A place to store shoes, bags and coats. Therefore, the often overlooked room should be carefully considered and designed to fit in as a deliberate part of the home. Take a look at some of the awe inspiring entryways. One can only imagine the beautiful interiors behind these entryways!

Model Style – Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Rosie is always on my radar for style and beauty inspiration. Now a staple in the fashion scene, she first caught the world’s attention in 2006 when she signed on with Victoria’s Secret. Rosie has also been the face of Burberry, appeared in the Transformers movie, and walked the runway for numerous major fashion houses. Here are some of my favorite Rosie red carpet and street styles. How beautiful is she?

Color Inspiration – Cobalt Blue

I was inspired today by a friend’s gorgeous photos of her trip to Greece. Not only was I lusting over her trip to a place I have always wanted to visit, but it got me thinking about the impact of color. The lush cobalt blue and white background is so stunning! I often overlook this beautiful jewel tone, however I have been re-inspired! With so much in design going more sober and confined the past few years, I feel like there will soon be a re-emergence of color. Beautiful, rich color is all around us. All we have to do is look!
