Designer Profile | Kirsten Kelli

All I could do when scrolling through Kirsten Kelli's portofolio was *gasp* with delight. Dallas-based sisters Kirsten Fitzgibbons and Kelli Ford have created the ultimate high-end luxury design firm, and their style screams traditional with a modern twist. Their work has been featured in Veranda, House Beautiful, and Architectural Digest to name a few. Have a little look:

Too good to be true, right? I love the classic, traditional vibes mixed with the modern, artistic pops here and there. You will want to see more from this dynamic duo, and follow their adventures in the world of luxe decorating on their instagram account as well!

Deep Blues In The Den

Aerin Lauder
I have been dreaming of navy blue walls for some time, and I think the den/library/home office is the perfect place for this deep hue. It's rich, it's luxe, and it lends a cozy 'reading nook' vibe to the space. And if you take a look through my Pinterest board you will quickly realize I am totally drawn to dramatic deep blues, navys, teals, and blue/greys for the den:

Have I got you convinced? All of that millwork & molding painted out blue makes for a very dramatic look. I especially love seeing that even bookcases, window shutters, or fireplaces have been painted out for a cohesive appearance. What do you think .... are you feeling blue?

Fabulous Bathrooms By Meredith Heron

Today I'm sharing one of my all-time favorite designer's work with you, and particularly the fabulous bathroom designs of Meredith Heron. This Toronto-based interior designer has truly mastered the art of intuitive glamour in all of her work, and I think you will immediately agree that the bathrooms below capture her talent perfectly. I adore some of the key elements Meredith employs to create a stunning bathroom space.

First example; she expertly adds texture, depth, and interest by utilizing millwork, grasscloth, and pattern through wallpaper & fabric.Whether it's floor-to-ceiling deep, luscious navy, or half the wall panelled in a tailored onyx, anchoring the room in decadent darks lends to an air of sophistication:
How about warm metal fixtures? I'm so thankful to see brass & other warm metals still going strong. Whether it's through light fixtures, hardware, faucets, or mirrors, Meredith knows how to pick pieces that become absolute showstoppers in the space!

It's quite easy to see that Meredith also has mixing tile patterns & textures down pat. She knows how to play with scale and perspective so that 5 or more tile types are seamlessly combined and your eye rests easily on the overall space. Stunning effect, isn't it?

To see more of Meredith's beautiful work hop over to her portfolio and blog.

Natural Elements Add Festive Flair

I adore all of the natural materials and greenery used throughout the lovely home of Jennifer Brumley as seen on Style At Home's website. Branches, boxwoods, hydrangeas, tiny fir trees, and moss bring such classy and Christmassy charm! A particular favorite for me is the square boxwood wreaths hanging in the windows of Jennifer's entryway. Have you decked your halls for Christmas?
