Modern Monday: Milan Milieu

Modern Monday travels to Milan. A chocolate shop and bistro no less. The citron chairs with walnut legs seem to effortlessly complement the brass accents on the table bases and countertop. The two-toned marble floors play with the theme of duality. The high ceilings feature a subtle texture. The dark window frames perfectly accent the chandelier and sconces. All elements combined make this space elegant, inspiring and fun.

Tabletop Tuesday: Ocean Breeze

Tabletop Tuesday is a setting that reminds me of a peaceful moment on the beach when the blue waters meet the white layer of sky hovering just above the waves.

It is important to create beauty in front of you, while enjoying and paying tribute to beauty around you. Food, like the ocean, is fuel for your soul.

Modern Monday: Mediterranean Skies

Modern Monday transports us to the crisp azure isles of the Mediterranean with this white, cobalt and sky blue room.

Although the color combination is simple, the visual impact is high. The architectural details that encompass the shapes, patterns and moulding in the archway plus the smooth wall textures leave the eye wanting more. Did you see the slight difference in the wall whites and textures midway down?

The furniture and accessories repeat the color, shapes and pattern found throughout. Did you notice how the area rugs perfectly repeat the colors, textures and symbols found in the furniture?

This room exemplifies how a seemingly simple color combination can be visual rich and dynamic.
