Designer Profile | BGDB Interior Design


I fell in love with this sweet gem of a kitchen this week, all the details are perfection! The tufted banquette, the lighting, the gas range, the honed island counter, and the artwork really caught my eye:

 
 
 
 
 
 
So I simply had to click through and see more from the designer of this kitchen - low and behold I landed on BGDB's extensive and lovely portfolio. BGDB was founded by Breeze Giannasio, a former corporate lawyer with a Harvard law degree, who redirected her career to embrace her passion for design. I love stories like that! Right brain and left brain working in perfect harmony:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
And there is a lot more pretty where that came from over on Breeze's website. Hope that started your week off with a nice dose of décor inspiration!

3 Reasons To Add Leopard To Your Home


 
 
I recently added these pretty leopard velvet pillows to my living room pictured above from the lovely Arianna Belle pillow shop. I've always been drawn to this print, and I think I have 3 good reasons why.

1. It's a timeless & classic pattern. Anything you find in nature will never get old. And if you look back at rooms that include a dash of leopard designed decades ago - they are still as relevant today.  The key to using this pattern's timeless style is to use restraint when incorporating leopard into your décor. Using too many layers can look a bit more cat-lady than sophisticated, so pick and choose your leopard pieces wisely. I loved injecting flair with a simple set of throw pillows.



2. It's a neutral! The pattern works in a variety of interior styles to inject style and substance. When used in its natural brown and black coloration, leopard print acts as a fabulous neutral in any space.

 

3. Leopard can easy mix with other patterns, and look like a million bucks doing it. Because leopard print is a fabulous neutral, it mixes well with more colorful pieces, and adds whimsy and fun to a space.


 
 
Oh, and don't forget that this rule applies to your wardrobe as well.


Convinced? Hop over to Arianna Belle The Shop to get inspired by all the stunning combination possibilities!

Baby It's Cold Outside


 
Happy Weekend! Is it cold where you are? We have hit below freezing temps several evenings this week, and I have pulled out every cable-knit sweater that I own. No snow here yet, but it's amazing how many snowy images I see on my Instagram feed, especially of friends on the East coast. As a person who favors being warm all the time, I am trying to embrace the cold this year! After all, there is something awfully magical and romantic that comes with this time of year ...






If you are somewhere chilly, I hope you have a chance to curl up by the fireplace with a cup of tea in the next couple of days. Wishing each of you a fabulous mid-November weekend!
