Paloma Contreras of La Dolce Vita writes one of my favorite blogs to check in on daily. To be truthful, hers is one of the few that I still take in regularly! I love the elegant Southern influence I get from her posts on everything from high-end design, to fashion, and travel. Paloma's recent projects have had me drooling and I'm sure you've all been following along, but here are some of my favorites via her fantastically inspirational instagram feed:
Paloma's Dauphine Suite for Traditional Home's Southern Style Now Showhouse
Peeks at her new home in Houston
Nothing beats old school 'pinning'
Her recent powder room reveal
Phoebe Howard at High Point
The Polo Bar
A peek at a recent install in progress, just in love with the lacquered paint in Benjamin Moore's Water's Edge
Another install in progress, I just can't get enough of the olive green velvet, the large-scale artwork and the Christopher Spitzmiller lamps! Endless inspiration.
As many of you may know, I contribute a monthly series on LDV called Dissecting the Details, but truth be told I was already a huge fan of the blog long before I began as a contributor! I always fully enjoy putting those posts together, it gets me thinking about what it is that I love about my favorite designers as I dissect their designs. For me it's a chance to go a little deeper into what makes a room really tick. I thought I'd link to a few of my favorite installments of the series here in case you missed them, starting with this past weeks' post featuring Suzanne Kasler's living rooms:
A huge thank you to Paloma for allowing me to get creative and always have fun with my Dissecting the Details series! Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm, we've got a dump of snow coming our way in Vancouver today!
