Today I'm loving...

...this amazing tree slab working as a kitchen island. It adds so much warmth and character to the space and is such a unique element.

Texas Treat

Large windows, rustic ceilings, and perfect color combinations all help make this Texas home bright and inviting without being too fussy or over the top.

Oh Oklahoma!

When I first came across these images, I assumed that this restaurant was tucked away in a posh corner of New York City or Los Angeles. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that Café 501 was up and running in Oklahoma City! The dramatic lighting effects such as the ring above the bar and the single point rods hanging from the ceiling at various heights are what really got to me.

Den Delight

There is something very soothing about the color combination in this den that makes me want to sit down, grab a book from its bookshelf, and stay for a few hours.

La Roma Love

This home in La Roma, Mexico has achieved a successful balance between its classic architectural roots and its pop culture styling. The central courtyard is my favorite feature. Not only does it provide a significant amount of natural light, but it also creates a private outdoor area for entertaining. The cowhide chair, abundant plant life, and bright colors make it particularly alluring.

Soho Global

Interior designer Tamara Magel recently opened a showroom in Soho to display her new collection of items that vary from upholstery to case goods. Her globally inspired patterns and textures pop against the neutral palette of the shop and leave those of us out of reach of New York a tad bit jealous.

Bar Carts

A bar table or cart in your living room acts as a personable focal point and a functional serving tool when guests are around.

Another Guy-Friendly Abode

I love seeing homes designed for men that keep style in mind. This pad, featured in the latest issue of Lonny is unique, masculine, and fun. Metal and lacquer pieces have been softened with the addition plants, rugs, and warm woods, while personal accessories such as watches and books are on display to appreciate each time you walk past.

Uncommon Objects

Agnes Verrier moved to Singapore from Paris fourteen years ago and has been busy collecting for her home ever since, visiting ninety countries in 2010 alone. The result has been a worldly eclectic mix that she describes as “organized but a little mad”. The two pillars between the dining room and living room were found in an antique shop but are originally from an Indian temple, proving the adaptability of uncommon objects even in a home setting.

Wood Work

I love the warm feeling created from the wood panels being carried from the floor to the wall to the ceiling in this passageway.
