This is Bananas!


This summer was all about Banana leaf and Palm Prints. Ughhhh I went crazy for these prints. I am obsessed with Martinique Banana Leaf wallpaper, which was created by decorator Don Loper in 1942 for the Beverly Hills Hotel, and is now an iconic wallpaper. Dorothy Draper has her own take on the print, Brazilliance by Carleton V…..you can tell the slight difference (sea grapes 😉 )

Pretty Please

Melbourne based interior designer Travis Walton and his team did wonders on this whimsical lavish lounge, Pretty Please in Melbourne, Australia.  Jungle-esque foliage on the walls, velvet upholstery, hot pink tones, and neon lighting transforms this into an Alice and wonderland vibe. I adore this wallpaper and being surrounded by a whimsical jungle sets the mood for their guests.  The dark nestled lounge seating makes for the perfect intimate luxurious setting! I love a place with dim lighting bouncing off brass and chrome accents! xoHOH

Roman and Williams

Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch, creative geniuses and the designers behind some of the most unique interiors. This duo created wonders in NYC and some of my favorite places to visit! If you love them as much as I do, read their book, Things We Made.

Incorporating Malachite

During the 70’s, in the midst of the geode craze Malachite and interiors morphed together to create the most luxurious combination I have yet to see.  In my opinion Tony Duquette is the man to thank, from his fabrics, flooring, dishes, and even book covers he embellished them in Malachite.  If you have an old chair or a bare wall you would love to liven up you can find this print on Spoonflower  xHOH

Masculinity at its finest

Although today is Valentines, which I believe to be a more of a female holiday myself, Im going to focus on the MEN. The more I love interiors the more I find myself growing to love the “man cave” vibe. Currently I have two burgundy chesterfield sofas and a cowhide rug in my living room, this reek’s of masculinity. I believe that every doll has her masculine side too!  The photos I am posting are from Château de Fleury, a chateau an hour outside of Paris.  I love the old world vibe and masculinity of this interior!  Enjoy! And Happy Valentines! xHOH

Brass Lamps

I’m mildly obsessed with Brass. My obsession right now is finding perfect brass lamps. I LOVE a hint of gold in rooms and these lamps mesh with any color from black to hot pink! Domed Lamps are my favorite plus brass…HEAVEN.
