Designer Spotlight: Palm Design Group

Hi everyone……things are moving along, just super busy as you can imagine trying to settle in and get somewhat organized, feel like we are just scratching the surface. Tomorrow next round of personal belongings arrive, so it will mean another frantic round of unpacking, organizing, sorting,etc…..but I hope to do a small updates post in the next few days, I promise! Here is a post I worked on in advance and I still have a few more amazing guest posts coming your way….
Hi there! I found the Palm Design group by accident looking through a design magazine in our hotel, The Phoenician (which I highly recommend by the way) while in Scottsdale a few years ago. I was immediately taken and smitten over their knack for creating beautiful rooms that combine American sensibility with the trace of a European feel. Their spaces are light and airy, inviting, classic and above all else supremely elegant.
?I was intrigued and suddenly started to see more of their work ?published which is very understandable. After looking at their portfolio, I realized their entire body of work is quite spectacular. Based in Arizona, this firm has officially won me over. What I love about their rooms, is that they feel like they could have been there for years (my favorite kind of space) and are really timelessly elegant. The interiors are simple and very classic, not fussy, overdone or too formal. I love the vibe that that seem to create time and time again. Clearly this is a very talented group over there. Take a look and see what you think about their look. Enjoy……
These colors are so beautiful together, what an inviting and elegant room!
Great kitchen, full of character
Lovely guest bath….love the “chest” console and bench
Here the mantle appears to take center stage, a very inviting space?
Love an ottoman in a bathroom, this ones a beauty
A delicate dressing table….
Soft colors make for such a cohesive feel to this bedroom
Another charming bedroom
I love interesting sinks and vanities, don’t you?
Wow a visual masterpiece!
Absolutely love these colors…cools and warms, beautiful!
A tonal and very elegant living room
Those soft washed colors again….so soothing
Love this bath, the perfect balance of rustic elegance and coziness
Amazing how something so simple can be so beautiful
Love these chairs?flanking the gorgeous stone fireplace
This backyard is dreamy……..love everything about it!
Ahhhh…something about a white bathroom and how gorgeous is this settee?
Love the colors in this room, the light is just fantasy like.
Great looking space, with its vast size, high ceilings, this is one dramatic room
Wow…just wow!
I want this!
The light colors do it for every time…..makes it so inviting
Gorgeous kitchen with the old hand molded brick floor, stunning!
Love lanterns and they apparently do too!
Arent’ these colors so soothing for a bedroom? Love the washed floors…..
How gorgeous are these rooms? ?Do you have a favorite? What do you think about this particular design style? Would love to know which and what you think about the cool soft palette they tend to use. To me, its a winning combination all the way. I especially love all those washed woods mixed in with the rich blues. And those outdoor spaces, so glamorous and beautiful! Wishing everyone a wonderful day!

Island Fever

Good morning…….. ?I have island fever. Kitchen islands that is. As my kitchen is really starting to come together (so excited) and I will admit it is every bit the vision I had hoped it would be, I have allowed myself to start thinking about what will go where and of course how I will accessorize. I am not one that likes a lot of ‘stuff’ on my countertops but do like some strategically placed beautiful objects particularly on the island. I also want the beautiful marble that I have had to lose many nights sleep over, gain 10 pounds over and argue with hubby over work hard to get to really shine, its so beautiful! My island is quite large and will definitely need a few things to warm it up and give it a sense of scale and proportion to the room. I have been playing around with different ideas in my head, and have been thinking of adding a few tall/big items, ideally a pair (I am big into pairs and symmetry) and then some smaller lower items to balance it. In my thinking, I started getting a lot of online inspiration and thought this could make for an interesting post. So what do you put on your island? How do you like to decorate a kitchen island? All thoughts welcome! Do you have a favorite?

30 ways to rock a crystal chandelier……..

Happy Monday morning to you ! ?So much happening at the house this week…….kitchen starts getting installed Wednesday- am so excited! This will be a process that will happen over a few weeks, as there are many elements to be installed, but the fact that even the “boxes’ are coming is a sure sign that the end cannot be far! They sealed the kitchen floors over the weekend again in preparation for the kitchen and after being covered up right away after they were installed I never really got a chance to sit and admire them. Well, suffice to say I spent plenty of time this weekend just standing, staring and LOVING my kitchen floors. I am truly in love with them….crazy sounding as it might be! Will be sure to update on Thursday.?
Don’t you just love a gorgeous crystal chandelier and what it adds to a room? Putting the sparkle factor aside, it adds a sense of old worldness, grandeur and has a beautiful way of anchoring a room. Chandeliers are by no means reserved strictly for traditional rooms but in fact work beautifully in even the most modern rooms too. Whats more, you see them well, just about everywhere today. In laundry rooms, back mud rooms, closets, dressing rooms, bathrooms, so many unexpected places and of course as expected in ?bedrooms, living, dining rooms and kitchens. Today I look at many different styles in many different types of settings. There is not a bad choice amongst them, each quite exquisite in my view. What are your thoughts on crystal chandeliers? Do you love or like them? Do you have a favorite look? Would love to know!

My "chair"e amour

Happy Wednesday! Hope everyone is off to have a wonderful day. Tell me who doesn’t have some amour for chairs! We all have them, and I am nearly sure we all love them. Can you imagine a room without them? ?I cannot even begin to wrap my head around all the different styles, frames, fabrics and colors that chairs come in,…its endless. They often anchor a room with the way they are scattered throughout, or may be flanking a fireplace…..without them well our interiors would be rather boring and mundane.?

Today I focus on a wide rage of chairs, scalloped, club, wing, French caned back,wood framed,side chair,etc…the list goes on! Do you have a favorite kind of chair you like to use when decorating? A favorite type of fabric to use on the chairs? All I know is there is nothing quite as nice as sinking into a really comfortable chair (one with down really helps) and getting comfy and cozy, perhaps with a good book, a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Add an ottoman, big bonus points! I love chairs not only in the obvious places like living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms but in bathrooms and in foyers, back halls and even stair landings. Chairs know no bounds…so lets take ?a look!

You knew this was coming….yep had fun AGAIN doing a “recap” of the chairs! (This is the OCD in me) So just in case you want a second peek, here it goes….
So whats your take on chairs? Do you have a favorite style? I personally love a really good comfortable tailored club chair and any chair that is French in design, they are so delicate and elegant! I love all the endless possibilities of designing a chair….and how they can have such an impact on a room. Always love to know what you think! Hope you have an enchanted day!

And a happy Tuesday morning to you! Hope everyone has recovered from their Memorial day weekends and that they were enjoyable. The sun ended up coming out here after all and we had such a great time at our friends house, I wish I had taken my camera! She did such an amazing job…and her backyard looks like a posh resort.

?Bathrooms have never been as big as they are right now,. They have become major focal points in decorating. Bathrooms today are outfitted with more bells and whistles and lets face it with life’s stresses there are few things that can soak away your troubles and worries like a deep soak in a wonderful luxurious bathtub! Is there anything better than closing the door to the chaos and stress raging outside your bathroom door, and at least temporarily forgetting your troubles by luxuriating in your own beautiful bathroom! I don’t think so.?

Add a beautiful tub to a luxurious bathroom laden with?gorgeous marble flooring, just the right wood trim, a fabulous vanity and/or dressing table, luxurious plump towels, maybe a beautiful little chandelier, or light fixture and I would say you have yourself a little slice of heaven. This post is all about a getaway of sorts, of which I like to write about often but this one is in your very own home…your bathroom! Check these beauties out…do you have a favorite? Do you have special design secrets that you would care to share on how to create the ultimate bathroom?
