BIG - Yes Is More

Last week a friend and I went to a free lecture at UC Berkeley where a well known Danish architect was giving a lecture, Bjarke Ingels. It was a great lecture and quite inspiring and interesting. Before the lecture I also picked up his book, Yes is More, to add to my coffee table book collection and was happy that we were able to get our books signed. I would recommend his book to anyone that's interested in architecture and design.


Viceroy Snowmass - Colorado

This new Colorado resort designed by Michel-Gathy and Kelly Wearstler is just amazing.

I wouldn't mind lounging around this space. So warm and inviting. And that ceiling...what can I say...just speechless...

And this chandelier light fixtures, is just my style.

Just love the warmth of this place. Hopefully one of these days I'll get to stay here.


Living Room - to purchase

Since we've decided to stay another year at our lovely small abode, I finally decided to make a few purchases for our place. At first I didn't want to purchase anything until we've moved to a new place, but since it's another year and I haven't really purchased anything since we've moved here (which is probably 4years or so now). And since the last time I really purchased anything for our place was during my college years, I think it's time to upgrade a few things. Plus I can't wait another year to change the space up a little. So these 3 are the main components I'd like to purchase sometime soon for our living room. I was looking for something that's within my budget, and I think these fits the criteria.

1. henny rand curtains - ikea
2. zigzag rug - west elm
3. adjustable metal floor lamp - west elm

Once I get these, then next stop is to change our bathroom accessories a little. Just a few little changes to our place to change it up a bit. No need to purchase anything major to change things, sometimes it's just the little things that needs some changing.


New York 200 Sq. Ft. Apartment

When I saw this article at the New York Times, I was extremely at awe on how this space is only a little over 200 sq. ft. and it turned out so fabulous.

I immediately fell in love with that light fixture from overstock. It's on my wish list now.

Love how she hung that mirror. Makes it more like an art piece.

The guest mattress turned to its side is such a genius idea that I would have never thought of. Now I know :).

Who says you need a large space to make it look fabulous. This just proves it.


Barbara Barry

One of my favorite designers...Barbara Barry

I just love seeing some of my favorite designers works space and seeing how they get inspired.

A nice space like this, I'd be inspired too.

("My office is white and clean and without decoration--a blank canvas on which to create,” says Barbara. The only must-have items in the office? Fresh flowers from the garden. Open space. And sunlight--plenty of sunlight.)

A bulletin board filled with inspiration images. Loving the little accessories on top of that table...so glam.
