FAB STAYCATION - Melrose Georgetown Hotel


 Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Happy New Year, loves!

I've had a very busy first month of 2018. Wrapping up some projects, starting some new ones, planning awesome collaborations and preparing new decoration services for you all! It definitely feels longer than only 30 days. So, when our friends from The Melrose Georgetown Hotel reached out offering a staycation for the hubby and I, we didn't have to think it twice!

What's more pampering than a romantic escape to a luxurious hotel, a bottle of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries? Our stay at the Melrose Georgetown Hotel was everything we wanted and more! The service and food were exceptional - especially the Valentine's Day menu at Jardenea that you HAVE to try - but my eyes went straight to the fabulous architectural details and interiors. Take a look! 

Perfect molding creating a statement at the front desk area. Below: my favorite touches of black and amazing textures in the restaurant area.

I really enjoyed the intimate lounge feeling around the common spaces. You can find a bunch of interesting nooks and seating areas - some of them dark enough to curl up with a book or maybe a martini. The atmosphere feels modern yet curated for extra comfort. The rugs are all graphic and fabulous, and the color palette includes sophisticated shades of purple and blue splashed with a fun pop of orange! A perfect pairing.

We stayed at the Ambassador's suite and loved every single detail. The walls are covered on textured wallpaper in a sophisticated shade of blue-gray. Again, the pops of color are an amazing addition to the decor, in this case in a beautiful leafy green. From fresh flowers to breakfast in bed for two, I can't recommend this hotel enough! If you are looking for your next getaway or a fab place to spend Valentine's Day look no further - just don't forget to order french toasts with your coffee in the morning ;)

Thanks for reading! xx.

A main part of my business is to grow as a design professional. I always aim to give my clients the best service and the best products in the market. And just like if I would do it for myself, I spend a lot of time curating a unique and luxurious experience for all and each of them.

The BOLD Summit 2017 was an amazing opportunity for me to meet some of the best professionals in the industry - inspiring designers with unbelievable talent transforming this world into a more beautiful place. During this summit in Chicago, I got to learn more about how to provide my clients with a truly sophisticated experience.  I discussed branding with the sweet Barclay Butera, how to excel at presenting your ideas and create without limits with Jamie Drake, and everything about the magic beautiful touch of Pamela Babey, among many other designers who I admire. 

I left feeling empowered, inspired and ready to create, full of energy to give only the best to my clients. If you are in the interior design industry, I can't recommend this enough. It will take you far into your next levels. Here are some fun pictures of the event. xx.

Summer evening look - and luxury furniture just for you!

I love summer evenings.

The beautiful sunsets. The extra hours of light. Our home gets this incredible amber light during the summer that pairs beautifully with our bamboo floors and spreads everywhere due to the gold ceiling next to our bay windows.

When you live in a small space, you have to choose your pieces wisely - especially if you like luxury furniture like I do ;) I knew it was time to change the look of our living room a bit, mainly because we needed a better storage solution under the TV. When I found the perfect credenza - in black and gold, obviously - I had to get rid of the pair of white arm chairs we had in front of our bay windows. I really wanted to open that area a bit so we could get closer to the windows and enjoy the fab view. 

Luckily, I found this gorgeous swivel chair that feels like a big hug every time you sit in it. Believe me, it took me quite some time to find the perfect piece for this spot. What convinced me was the timeless look and its quality. I know she will stay with us for a long time! And that's the best investment you can make for your home.

Next time you think about replacing a piece you have at home, think about making a long-term investmentTrust me. There are plenty of places where you can get unique, top-quality pieces that will elevate the look of your home - I linked some of my favorites throughout this post because you deserve only the best ;) Now, if it ever gets too overwhelming to choose the perfect piece, just send me a note and I'll make all your decoration dreams come true - plus we'll toast with a glass of champagne when we are done. How does that sound?!

I really hope you are having a wonderful summer! Thanks so much for reading and following my adventures. You are the best! xx.
