How Mr.West lives in the West

Don Stewart designed this LA pad for Grammy winning rapper and producer Kanye West, and it is H O T !!! I can't say enough about any of these spaces; so I won't say a thing at all. The design speaks for itself, listen...

You can check out the story and a couple more pictures here at Interior Design.

Down the tube

If you're a fan of HGTV and you watch their show "I Want That" you probably have seen this toilet paper that was featured on the show about a year ago; for some odd reason I thought about the product today and I want to get your thoughts on neon colored toiletry. Does your bottom deserve $150.00 toilet paper (15 rolls)...well Renova thinks so; what are your thoughts?

Rated X

I sincerely hope no one's offended by the title of this post, but I just wanted to grab your did it work?

It's been a couple of days since I've posted anything. I (or should I say my mind because my body was right here at home) took a short vacation to get some things straight but I'm back! This is my third post about these graphic x rugs found at 2modern and I just can't seem to get enough of sharing these with you. They may not be the most practical purchase but they are super hot, enjoy.

One of these things is not like the others

This is a great example of how accessories and paint color can transform a room! Three of the rooms above are all the same space with the exception of fabrics, pillows, paint, rugs, and accessories being changed in each photo.

I'll admit changing the paint color in a room several times, or even once a year, is quite ambitious; but I feel like even if the walls were painted a neutral tone or left chocolate brown changing everything else still would have a dramatic effect.

Which room is your favorite?

White after Labor Day :-o

The age old customs states "Don't wear white after Labor Day", but what about your room. Is your white room "out of style"...I think not. These are just a few white spaces but to me they are crisp and refreshing no matter what time of the year!

White is a cool color but if you have a white space that you're looking to warm up I'd suggest bringing in some neutral or warm hues to the room as well as lots of texture such as corduroy, faux fur, and velvet. Imagine changing out the black accessories in the rooms shown above for rich brown tones. Add drapes over the current sheers which can add both function (literally keeping the room warmer) and style, a couple of toss pillows, and a throw (which is also functional for snuggling) and you've got an instant Winter Wonderland!

Look at your white room as a blank canvas. The bedroom shown above has endless style possibilities. I can imagine it transitioning perfectly with just a change of accessories from season to season making the space suitable year round.

In spite of everything I've said remember your space is your own, and it's meant to make you happy, so if you're comfortable with your all white space...Don't change a thing!
