Event - Rebloom on the Roof

If you're in the DC area, there's an amazing charity event taking place May 16th - a cocktail fundraiser for Room to Rebloom! They do amazing work creating healing environments for survivors of domestic violence. Each year, "Rebloom on the Roof" aims to successfully raise enough money to outfit an entire apartment for a survivor.  Check out their amazing projects here.  This year's event will take place at La Vie Restaurant's rooftop penthouse overlooking DC's new Wharf District waterfront and will feature light fare, signature cocktails, a silent auction, designer sample sale, Kendra Scott pop-up shop, dessert station and more.

At Home: Isabel López-Quesada at Home

I first blogged about Isabel López-Quesada back in 2012 so I was very excited when Vendome Press offered me a chance to review her first book,  At Home: Isabel López-Quesada at Home.  The book details her Madrid and French homes  and is complete with vivid photography by Miguel Flores-Vianna.  

Her signature design aesthetic is inspiring and, along with gorgeous interiors, the reader is treated to lush courtyards and gardens. I'm a fan of her strong emphasis on the texture and patina of the architecture and her spare but strong use of textiles and accessories to accent the spaces.

Here are a few iPhone snaps from the book. 


There's also a two page illustration spread of her Madrid home  - below is a snippet. 

Now I've got my fingers crossed that Isabel will release a second book featuring her
work with clients!

This Kitchen!

It's been so long I almost couldn't remember my blog password but I just had to share this kitchen by DC based Ally Banks Interiors. Maybe you've seen it?  I just came across it and my first thought was "this kitchen wins the internet!"

Island Hopping with Amanda Lindroth

The promo I received from The Vendome Press about Island Hopping: Amanda Lindroth Design couldn't be more accurate - it's "the visual equivalent of an island getaway."  And, there's a lot of getting-away in this book with 25 featured projects over 287 pages!  For each project, Amanda shares the background and inspiration and then treats you to pages of gorgeous photography by Tria Giovan, who happens to have grown up in the Virgin Islands.  

I love relaxed, coastal inspired interiors and Amanda takes them to an elevated level.  The book is full of close-up details, as well as full-room shots, which I think is the perfect combination. Here's just a few snapshots I took of some of my favorite spaces.

Additionally there are beautiful illustrations by Aldous Bertram that I'm tempted to carefully tear out and frame.

If you love relaxed, coastal interiors with a sophisticated and creative eye for detail, color and scale or you want to vicariously island hop, then Island Hopping: Amanda Lindroth Design is for you!
