Home Tour: Moroccan Inspired On The Florida Coast

Moroccan influences in home decor have been a fairly popular trend for several years. However, I've never seen a homeowner take this theme to the extreme and execute it so flawlessly. Located off the Gulf in Mexico, this beautiful Florida beach house feels more like an exotic Mediterranean resort. The town architects for Alys Beach, worked closely with designer and home owner Jessica Roan to create this chic retreat. You can see the full house tour over at Atlanta Homes and Lifestyle.

Interior Design Inspiration From Instagram

When it comes to finding interior design inspiration, I tend to go in and out of phases.  For the longest time I was obsessed with Pinterest (and I still think it's amazing) but in the past several months, I've been finding the best interior design inspiration on Instagram. I thought I'd share some of my favorites here today.

I love how Instagram added a feature for saving favorite images to a special file and find myself doing this often. It such a great way to easily go back and re-examine something you saw later. I also love the real life sneak peeks into other people's homes and lives. These inspiring accounts are just a small sample of the design folks I love following ...I'd love to hear about some of your favorite Instagram accounts in the comments below!


Spring and Summer Clutches

Last week, while we were down in Florida, I tagged along on a quick shopping trip to Palm Beach's famous Worth Avenue and managed (with great restraint) to not buy one thing. I figured if I was still thinking about something, I could always order it up online. In general, this is a great way to shop if you're not looking for anything specific...especially if it doesn't require a try on. The problem is...I'm still thinking about SO many of these clutches:)

The good news is that Saks is holding it's Friends and Family event right now...and there's a bunch of great looking clutches on sale! YAY!

Modern Farmhouse Love

Brooklyn based Chango and Co. designed this ideal Connecticut weekend retreat for their clients. The image of the round kitchen table and white wishbone chairs above was what initially grabbed my attention here (sealing the deal for my quest for a new round table in our own kitchen- needs to happen!)  Featured last month on Architectural Digest, the whole home is a feast for the eyes. So many fabulous ideas, including the brilliant use of round colorful wall decals in lieu of wallpaper, in the adorable children's play space.
