IF OUTFITS COULD INSPIRE: GREY AND PINK

How is your weekend coming along? Mine comes and goes in a blink.

When I tweak/design, the idea/color just comes to me. Sometimes, I see them in magazines, in other blogs or around me. India is all about colors. What if outfits could inspire you to decorate/design your space? If an outfit was a room.....

This Manish Malhotra's gown/lehenga from the Lakme Fashion Week Winter 2014 matches the design/decor of the bedroom designed by Krista Salmon.

This outfit by Arpita Mehta can be inspired to paint this secretary/cabinet. Never knew grey and pink would go so well.
I am not sure, if I want to do this series once a month or once a week. You will know it when I post it next time.

Enjoy your rest of the weekend and have a great week ahead.

HOUSE TOUR: STEVEN GAMBREL

Sharing with you all a Manhattan apartment designed by Steven Gambrel. The apartment belongs to a couple who wanted to conjure a bar in London in their apartment.
The colors!!
The dining room ceiling is painted in Benjamin Moore's Mystic gold.
Adjoining the living room is the library.
Impossible to miss the light fixture in the foyer. The arched doorways, one leads to the library and one to the living room.
Custom made cabinets and the island in the kitchen. Notice the floor?
The study.

Kids room has me going for the monogrammed headboards, the pendant and the painted window frame.
And the painted ceiling in this kid's room.
Master bedroom features custom built four-poster bed. I like the secretary in plain wood.
Custom designed vanity and door in powder room.
When I work in a room/space, I get uneasy if I see more than three colors. And Steven Gambrel worked with so many colors and textures in one home and made it look grand.

My favorite was the kids room and the kitchen. What about you?
