HOME TOUR ~ KATIE KIME

I first came across this article written by Rebecca Dalzell and photographed by Genevieve Garrupo in Lonny and it just made me smile. I was so inspired by her fresh take on design that I had to share her very inspiring home in Austin, Texas. Katie Kime is someone who sees the world as though you were on a merry-go-round ride around the color wheel. Traveling has been a great inspiration for her, from bright Moroccan poufs, Obami embroidery or Turkish kilims. “Color in these countries is so bright and bold and fearless, pink with orange, red with pink.” Katie Kime’s home is filled with bright, bold patterns and whimsy. Her interiors website and brand began in 2013 and now, she has expanded to a brick-and-mortar showroom in Austin, Texas.

MODERN POINT OF VIEW ~ A PACIFIC PALISADES HOME TOUR ~~

shubin-large

Architect Russell Shubin approached the redesigning of this Pacific Palisades residence with thoughtful ‘restraint’. According to the architect, “its qualitative and not about more is better”. The house is a 1960s structure that had been remodeled in the 1980s. While the house has a relatively small footprint, it nevertheless, made up with its unique setting. The house is on a promontory and every place on the site has a completely different view.

Shubin took the structure down to its studs and then reshaped the exterior with flat roofs and clean modernist lines. As the house is built into the hillside, he placed the public areas on the top floor, the master bedroom and two children’s rooms one level down and an office below that.

To capture expansive views, the architect held back from the expected walls of floor-to-ceiling glass in favor of carefully crafted vistas for impact.

MY MOODBOARD MONDAY ~~ #3

A Chic Office Concept ~~

Hello to All! Hope everyone’s weekend was a fabulous one, doing the things you enjoy, whether it was entertaining with friends, gardening, organizing an overlooked space, working on a DIY project, shopping, relaxing with a good book, or simply, just doing nothing because you didn’t want to. We all need to have some down time. Too often, we feel the need to cram “something” into every minute of the day. I know I am guilty of this, probably because I have a full-time design job and there are soooooo many”projects” and “things” I want to do or need to do, that I end up feeling guilty if I just do nothing. It’s always a juggle….such is life…..

Soooooo…….here’s a moodboard creation for an office space that evokes a sense of sophistication and a certain bit of “chic-ness”. I designed this “moodboard” for a professional, creative woman who isn’t afraid of color and wants to be surrounded with classical elegance that is modern, functional and, well, tres chic!
