Venetian plaster walls, high gloss lacquer painted ceilings!  Love.  I wouldn't use this saturated color shiny surface look in every room, but for a ceiling, a foyer, a small library, I like.  I really like this teal shiny entry hall above from New York interior designer Lilly Bunn.  Great contrast to the white cheerful fresh living room right next door.  The gold ceiling is the icing on the cake

2014-05-02T08:44:42.481-07:00

What a fun whirlwind two days at High Point Market in North Carolina.

BLACK WINDOW FRAMES

2014-05-02T08:44:42.497-07:00

I love this look.  Black trimmed windows against a neutral background.  Can add character to modern minimal spaces and could just enhance the look of a more traditional home.  A small architectural detail that can do a long way.  Paint wood black or go with iron windows (expensive)...either way, both look awesome in my view.I like the way these black windows look in this modern Spanish home (

2014-05-02T08:44:42.504-07:00

Small spaces require small kitchens.  I know having lived in my tiny little cottage in the Hollywood Hills for years and years.  Certainly get design inspiration from "done up" decorated large rooms, but true inspiration comes from the ingenious ways people use small spaces.  The one-wall kitchen is an example of this!Have featured one-wall kitchens here and there in the past.  Always marvel over
