White Hot Good Lord, please give me this kitchen. Is that Fortuny-patterned wallpaper behind the gas range? Yes, please. Give me some of that. Loving the contrast of those sexy black pendant lights as well. So out of place that they fit right in. Only tweak I’d make: not keen on the farm table extension for the barstools. But really, if you gifted me with this lovely space I’d find it quite difficult to complain.
Take It Outside Is the increased sunshine beaming through your windows beckoning you to spend more time outside? Here are 10 inspirational outdoor spaces that will keep you in a sunny disposition even on cloudy days.
Runway to Tabletop Another fab installment of Runway to Room to Tabletop (we have to think of a shorter, snappier name for this). This week we used the candy colored striped from Marc Jacobs to create a summery tabletop and a bold child’s room. I love the challenge this poses each week as a designer- it’s like a work-out for my creativity muscles!
Texan House of God Thanks are due to our friends over at blog Second Shelters for digging up this spectacularly renovated Dallas church. Measuring almost 15,000 square feet, the former St. John’s United Methodist Church now makes for one seriously spacious private home, with 11 bedrooms, 11.5 bathrooms, two kitchens, a media room in the former choir loft, and—apparently rare in Texas—a 5,000-square-foot basement. This holy hall was first listed back in June 2009 for an astonishing $3.1M, and was recently delisted by Coldwell Banker. Are the sellers giving up or just laying low for for Lent?

Wacky Green Homes Green doesn’t necessarily mean Birkenstocks, granola and a lack of style. As the sustainable movement has become more than just a passing trend, homes that are green — either by design or function — are becoming a little less stark and a little more fashion forward.
