Bank holiday weekend treats

So after having a busy weekend working on my latest project, a beach apartment (which is now finished), I was relaxing and having a look through Norm.Cph website - an architect based in Copenhagen.  Here are a few treats...

Celebrity Home Envy: Ashley Tisdale

Check out June's Instyle for a peek into the home of Ashley Tisdale. A pool cabana, pink velvet, mirrored furniture, linen drapes and.... a Louis Vuitton trunk cocktail table in the living room? I'm in LOVE! The best part is that she designed her first home herself.

Veranda's Californian Beauty

Summer is in the air. Enjoy these pics from this month's issue of Veranda.

I love these wicker chairs next to the rough table.
Loving the roman shades and the burlap bag planter here.

Slipcovers on the porch. Brilliant!

Austin Artist: Kyle Bunting Collection at Gump's

I love to read success stories about local Austin artisans. Kyle Bunting is everywhere these days. I first heard about him from Karen Hall Designs. A couple of weeks ago, my sister pointed out one of his hide rugs featured in an Austonian show house living room.

Now, San Francisco design shop Gump’s will be offering an exclusive limited edition collection of furniture and art from the renowned Austin-based designer Kyle Bunting.

Bunting, who made his name with collaborative collections of cowhide rugs, wallcoverings, and upholstery created a series of screens, ottomans, and tables available in unlimited pattern and color variations for his Gump’s collection. Gump’s will also be featuring a group of six four-by-five foot hanging art pieces made of highly detailed cowhide by Bunting and his team.
