Dazzling us All

If you love her style then you’re going to love her new book ‘Dazzling Design’ filled with inspiration, beautiful photography and just about every imaginable way to decorate your home from bold and colorful to calm and soothing.  Amanda Nisbet has captured almost everything in her first design book and is a true believer in bending and breaking the rules.  Her philosophy: ” When rooms are too perfect, they can be a bit lifeless.  My solution is to completely finish a space, then add an element that throws it a bit off balance.”  It’s nice to know that imperfection can be a good thing.  I’m taking a page out of her book and I think you should too!

 

God Bless the mixing of old and new

Order ‘Dazzling Design’ here and tour through her favorite projects including her own apartment in New York City

Her use of color is absolutely bold and stunning!

Heaven Let Your Light Shine Down

Posted By Rebecca-NY | Aug 28, 2012 | 3 Comments | Category: Uncategorized

After so many searches and shopping trips for the perfect chandelier, table lamp, pendant, floor lamp and sconces I feel as though I finally have a lighting collection that I love.  All these fixtures are of course spread throughout various homes in NYC, CT and Westchester but I thought I’d share a few of my favorite finds over the years.  Lighting is one of those things that should not be dismissed or chosen without care.  It can be the centerpiece of the room and literally light up your life.
