amazing restaurant design

I LOVE finding new restaurants, and it is not just for the food.
I have a thing for restaurant design.
It is beyond cool when you find a place where the food is fabulous and the environment is right…
no need to be fancy, just right. That is the case with the new restaurant Palmilla
in Hermosa Beach – although I haven’t tried the food yet the design is delicious!
With no further ado, get ready to indulge yourselves!

How beautiful are those pendant lights?

  The wall with the chain is such a cool design element!

yum… the food looks good too!

Hermosa Beach here we come!!! 

Have a good day!

Bathroom Makeover

It's time!  We have to remodel our Master Bathroom.  Most people
would be excited about this prospect! Not me!!! I know...This is what I do
day in and day out. It should be easy, painless, and so much fun! 
Not when it's in your home! Oh... and did I say -  there's a  BUDGET, too!
 Pay back is a bitch!  Ha HA!

I've been compiling a few design inspirations to get
me moving on this little project.
Take a peak!

This is so me!
Erin Martin Design 

i'm loving all the white on white!

the clean lines and the simplicity of this bathroom is so inviting.
check out the sink!

whats not to love here!

tile inlay mats in case you forget who's - who!

yummmm -  subway gorgeousness!

like the industrial pendants! these sinks however
aren't fabulous for the master bath!

this is what I'm going to end up with if I don't get the ball rolling!
which... isn't so bad! i actually love everything in here!

Wish me luck! 

Stay tuned for some before and after pics. 

Have a good day!

Lovin GRAY!

I gotta GRAY thing going on!'s not the hairs on my head!
I'm working on a living room right now for a pretty cool chick and her hubby with a boat
load of kids and two English bulldogs.  Soooo, I can't do the whole white thing for them. 
They need something they can all hang together on for TV night,
the kids can put their feet on and sneak a snack or two,
 the dogs can sleep on if they don't get caught! So...I'm going gray!
You know...indestructible!
 However... keeping it beachy, fun, and hip with tons of pillows!
I started stalking all the gray linen sofa's, pillows,and fab's I could find.

Restoration Hardware

West Elm
Cisco Home

perrrty!!'s the direction we want to go with the help of a few Design greats!

 This room speaks for itself by Commune Design!

I'm obsessed with their pillows!!! 

Sorrrry!  Got a little side tracked!

not gray,but...LOVE the leather sofa and the whole vibe of this room! 

see the puppy??? that's what I'm talking about!
whatever that decorative thing is on the sheep skin is - I want!!!

I'm sorry.  I can't rememeber where I first saw this photo.
 If you know who designed this room,
please enlighten me! Because...It's awesome!'s what we've pulled together so far!

Promise to show photos of the room when completed.
I'm thinking...the commune pillows are a must!!!
Don't you agree??

It will give the gray sofa that pop of color it needs! 

Have a fabulous Thursday!
