Favorite Room of the Day-Neutral Bedroom

Pin It

We like colors most of the time, but we like neutral, quiet colors some of the times too.  It's calming, it's serene, and if you are surrounded by colors and patterns all day long like we are, it's a nice respite.

That's why we're liking this room today.  It's a little boring to some people, but aggh, sometime that's just what you need...

Crazy for Fuschia

Pin It

We like using fuschia as an accent colors quite a bit lately.  It's not as timid as pink, not as loud as yellow, but  dramatic enough to make a splash.

Here are some of our faves:

Ralph Lauren's Decor Style

Pin It

Did you see the spread in last month Elle Decor on Ralph Lauren?  His place is to die for, seriously.

Ralph Lauren has been around for so long. We remember saving up for a set of his paisley bedsheets in the 80S! His style evolves a bit, but not much. We suppose that's why they call it classic, right?

Here are some pictures from Elle Decor in case you haven't seen them.

We've just added Ralph Lauren fabrics and Ralph Laruen wallpapers to our fabric store.  You can check them out here .

Inspirational Decorating Photos

Pin It

We would like to make a little announcement today. A few months back we announced the launch of Digging Decor, which originally was conceived as a design blog.

As the months went by, we decided the better approach was to re-design it as a  decorating community site, with the focus on decorating photos.

If you're anything like us, you rather look at the pictures than read the text, right?  The goal for the site is to be the largest library of decorating photos, all well-indexed and well-categorized for easy searching with proper credit given to the original source.

We hate to toot our own horn, but the site is quite lovely and quite sleek.  In addition to having tons of pictures, you can also join the community to ask fellow members questions like-- how to do this, where to find what etc.  You can also post your own blog, upload picture of your favorite room, and get updated on deals and designed-related events.

We would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it if you come visit the site, and better yet, be a part of our community and submit your favorite decorating photos.  Thanks in advance!

New Online Design Magazines

Pin It

Online decorating magazines seem to be a growing sector, starting with the success of Lonny. 

There are a couple of new ones that you might want to check out.  The first one is Adore Home, which is an Australian online magazine.  The content is a bit thin for the first issue, but it looks like it has potential.

The second one is Rue Magazine.  This one is huge (over 200 pages). The first issue has a large section devoted to design blogs.  This one seems really exciting if they can keep up the content.

More Mediterranean Decorating...

Pin It

They say McMansions are dead, but if you happen to already have one , this is a nice way to decorate it.

We like how the scale is done.  The rooms seem enormous, but the furnishings are scaled accordingly ....They look tasteful, don't they?

Modern Mediterranean Decorating

Pin It

Mediterranean houses are big here in California.  The problem is many of them are done terribly.  Quite often you see these large, sometime huge, faux Mediterranean tract homes with matching furniture set, heavy draping, granite counter tops--and once you see one house you see them all. They all look the same!

You only have to watch Real Housewives of Orange County to know what we're talking about.

So we were so happy to stumble upon a beautiful house in Santa Monica while browsing for real estate (just for fun, mind you).  Here is a great Mediteranean home that's done right.  See how the furniture is light, nothing is matchy matchy, and the colors are so fun and bright?

PS And just in case you are curious, the house is for sale for $3.795M.  That's California for you!
