Nature Inspired


Beautiful low pile turkish area rug with sprawling leaves and lotus like blossoms forming a central medallione design. All designs begin with a center point of inspiration. We may never know the pinpoint of the inspiration of many designs we see. I find myself contemplating and wondering what was it that inspired them to create this design to choose this color. This is a showcase of what I could think would be an inspiration of this rug from the Bromeliad family, Aechmea. I wandered upon this beauty at the San Francisco Flower Mart one of my hobbies, plant and flower shopping.

Prior to my trip to Las Vegas I had researched some of the top most popular restaurants to visit. Many of the recommendations were from friends and most couldn't stop raving about Bouchon Bakery as I had to make a visit to see what it was all about. In a later post I will go into more detail on Bouchon Bakery, but upon first arrival I was awe struck by the beautiful geometric medallione prints floating seamlessly through the room. The colors were unexpected and matched perfectly with the blue velvet banquettes running alongside. 

The Pantry was located inside The Mirage, it was a very popular brunch spot because it had a line out the door every morning. The colors throughout the space were mixes of neutrals and warm tones, which blended perfectly with the starburst diamond tile madness happening below our feet.

Project samples and inspiration

Wonderful meeting with my client today making decisions on her new San Francisco home. Her style is very contemporary with neutral accents and layering in bold prints to blend everything together. I am in love with the marled grey low pile rug we have chosen for the space by pulling together the artwork and pillows for a striking statement any guest would be wowed. 


Shell Pendant


Seashells are nothing more than a reminder of the summer time and days spent at the beach. This gorgeous shell pendant would look great in any beach side bungalow. The three tiers give the fixture dimension and cascading qualities that remind you of waterfalls in a near by tropical getaway.

Charmed Life


At any moment you can be inspired and it's important  keep these images. I keep a design journal of all the images and inspirational objects I've crossed paths. After some time it's fun to flip through the pages of the journal and see all the things that spoke to you at one point in time. 




The perks of working in the Design District of San Francisco. Inspiration is always just around the corner as I stumbled upon this rug showroom. The colors and weaves are endless when it comes to finding the perfect rug for your home. The overdyed rugs are taking over the design market offering traditional design in unique color ways.

The idea of diy dyed rug sounds like a lot of fun, especially if you have a 100% wool rug or stumble across a good deal. The durability and lifetime of a wool rug is the best you can find. Along with its softness and doesn't matte down easily a reason for its long-standing comfort.
