Barcelona - Luxury Digs



This historic building is in Barcelona and built in 1904,
by Domenec Boada.
The stained glass in the first two images I adore.



I think the design work in this luxury apartment is outstanding.
I am loving the broad striped walls. 


I love the kitchen as well.
Small but efficient .


An upholstered screen separates the dining area from the kitchen.
Clever and stylish.


And i like the mantel very much.


The bedroom is masculine and architectural.


This guest room is stunning.....

BUT
I am not sure if the walls are upholstered or papered .
YOU TELL ME???

Garden Containers And Planted Steps


This is a sweet temporary idea.
Very Cute.


I love these heads filled with succulents and flowers.


In the right place.....cute.


Bicycle planters - one of my faves.


I have done this filled with orchids is pots in an old L.V. suit case.



I think these cork containers are 
without question my favorites from the lot- 


I would only like the wall covered in pots in terracotta.
....and brimming with green or flowers.


Too tedious for me.


I think I would like to try this at my Mom's in Maine....
but in stone.
I will be there on June 6th till.....



Have a great day!!

Which did you like best??

Take It Easy On Memorial Day Weekend...And Take A Friend!


But
Don't over do it!!!


It is hotter than HELL here in Florida....
and humid.
The humidity is what makes it so unbearable for me!


Nothing is more fun to watch than dogs having fun at the beach.


Or watching a dog just cooling off.
RIGHT?


Dog's need time to just 
'BE' 

....like we do.




**I actually need some time to just 'BE' as well.
I have some big decisions to make.


Have a great weekend & BE SAFE.

Christina Murphy Interiors....Again!




I know that the carpet above is chocolate and white
and not black and white.....
BUT-
I was thinking that I could use this carpet pattern
in black and white INSTEAD of a ZEBRA pattern.

It would be brilliant.









I am drawn to her work because she uses so much GREEN,
and I love green.



I just love a library - dining area.
It is very warm,
and can be extremely interesting.

What are your thoughts on her use of green?
It is an obvious love affair.....NO?

It seems everyone is posting about Christina Murphy this week
because of the recent article on her work in House Beautiful.

Check out her website below.

Madeline Stuart - In The Category of 'PERFECTION'


Seldom do I find a designer that I love everything they do.
Madeline Stuart is a designer that is incredibly diversified.


As you will see in the images that follow







M.S. maintains the integrity of the historical homes she has done.
You will be blown away by a few of these bathrooms.





Just gorgeous.


Isn't this a feminine deco bath?




I would venture to say she is a brilliant designer.






Nothing she does is forced, or contrived.

Her balance,
 and eye for color are as near as perfection as it gets.

She can do any look/style 
with a such natural ease.
This is amazing to me!!

I urge you to go to her site below.
These were just images that I liked.
You may find other images that you prefer.....

What do you think of her work?

Have a lovely day xoxox

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.

Private Paradise
