I was recently introduced to a site called Home.By.Me, a free online resource for creating 3D design where you can create your entire home in 3D and experiment with thousands of products and textures before sharing your projects with friends and experts.

The program allows you to import plans (already drawn) or develop your own plans using the software.

It also allows you to select furniture from top designers and manufactures, to scale in with color for a realistic look of your potential conceptual design.

The download also offers the ability to adjust the time and date to simulate seasonal sunlight changes.

In addition, you can export image files to share by email and social media or even view in 360 degree.

For more info, visit the site for a tour and free download.

Back in June, I attended a breakfast event with Panasonic in conjunction with the Dwell on Design event taking place in Los Angeles. Our breakfast was hosted at the fabulous downtown LA restaurant, Faith & Flower, designed by AVRO | KO. I was taken by the interiors and photographed the space. For a full view, visit the Faith & Flower gallery website here or the designer website. Below are some of my highlights. (The food is great too, highly recommend!)

Supermodel Karlie Kloss shares her first NYC apartment, located in the West Village, on a quiet street just a few blocks from the Hudson River. She enlisted interior designer Nate Berkus to help her create the chic look go her very first home.

The goal was to create a look that reflects her style, in relating to fashion, to mix and match the same way she does with clothes.

One of her favorite spots, she says, is the kitchen – where she has a passion for baking cookies. I love the multi-level / stairs to kitchen with the paned glass and tiny dining banquette.

This past week I attended a special event at Kelly Wearstler’s flagship boutique on Melrose for the celebration of the book, “In The Spirit Of Beverly Hills” published by Assouline. In attendance was both Kelly Wearstler and Nancie Clare, author of the book. The amazing photos in this post were taken by my friend and photographer, Marcia Prentice.

As I was browsing Pinterest, I came across this picture of a charming powder room. When I clicked on the source it took me to a blog who’s writer is a Newport Beach based blog. Newport Beach is my hometown and the above image is quintessential beachy, evoking the homes of where I grew up. While it may be winter across the rest of the nation, here in Southern California it currently remains sunny and 70′s. The blue hues like in the above seem to fit in well here, year round.

To view more, check out the blog here and for some local highlights, visit the “So Cal Field Trips” tab too.

In both interiors and fashion, sometimes it’s fun to break out of the norm and mix things up a bit, be it color or pattern or any mix of eclectic styles. These rooms evoke a balanced harmony despite a mix of colors and pattern – try mixing it up!
