Oh the good old twin bed.  Remind you of summer camp?  Your poster covered, 7 year old bedroom you shared with your kid sister? 1950′s sitcoms where married couples slept in separate beds?  Vanquish all the above from your memory!  Twin beds are hot these days, and these pics will show you why!  They are a great guest room option and yes, still are perfect for kid’s rooms.  These twin bed abodes prove that two really can be better than one.

To me, nothing signals the approach of the most wonderful time of the year more than Starbucks’ annual release of their signature red cups. Today marks the 12th Anniversary of the colorful tradition and I hope it brings you as much pre-holiday cheer and excitement as it does me!..  Let’s warm up with a little handful of red today…

A few more reasons I’m loving on this festive hue:

Rina Menardi has added a new shade to her already irresistable collection… Che bella!Rina

I absolutely adore Farrow & Ball’s new Lotus print in red and can not wait to showcase it in my one of a kind designer space at the Merchandise Mart’s “One of a Kind Show” this upcoming December… Lotus

Can you imagine feeling anything but fabulous in this Jolie tub?  Regia earned Designer Plus 2009 status with this decadent design…

There are so many fun things in the summer issue of CS Interiors…surely to inspire many posts!  CS Interiors is the home and interiors offshoot magazine of CS (Chicago Social), the Chicago edition from the Modern Luxury publishing group.  It’s an exciting, sharp and truly fun read…and I always learn or rediscover a cool Chicago “thing.”  For example, I have had the pleasure of meeting the woman behind Bedrooms by Brynne, a “luxury boudoir design service”  and was excited to see her addition to the mag.  Bedrooms by Brynne is the brainchild of Brynne Rinderknecht, a young and crazy talented designer who specializes in, yes, the bedroom.  Before the School of the Art Institute alum launched her own company in 2007, she had been decorating over the top sets for Playboy.  Brynne decorates the bedrooms of her clients with the same flair and whimsy as she used in her Playboy days.  She does, however, still do work in set decoration as well as commercial work…which is equally as fabulous as the personal bedroom retreats she creates for her clients.  Brynne is fearless in her work and varied in her style, which makes me even more fascinated with this young, bold designing rogue.  Tell me what you think about her various work!  Also, stay tuned for more from CS Interiors!

I Have Been Caught Dreaming

Posted By Julia-Chicago | Jan 27, 2009 | 2 Comments | Category: Bed and Bath

Been traveling quite a bit for business and kiddo stuff.. .college auditions for our young, talented,  classical musician,  and have been searching through archives of amazing dream bedrooms.  Not sure if I need to wake up or sleep more deeply through this process :)

Some of my favorites are from British Homes & Gardens.

This “Modern Classic” example is alive with blocks of colour (gotta love that) accented with florals and geometrics.  Subtle, soothing shades emphasize the cocooning nature of the room, while ceramics and accessories in pure white impart light relief…that I dig.

This “New-Look Country” is based on texture and pattern which brings a sense of intimacy (blush) to this bedroom scene.  A dramatic floral wallpaper, tempered by clean lined furniture and unfussy curtains, gives the space a romantic feel without being overwhelming.

“Boudoir Chic” is all about an over-sized bedhead (UK speak for headboard) that creates a striking focal point and works beautifully with a delicate color palette.  Subtly patterned wallpaper, plus accessories and cushions in silk and taffeta add to the sense of glamour and luxury.

Hmmmm.  Looking for a bit of shut eye……
