When it comes to interiors I'm all about the drama.

Bold. Striking. Strong. I love creating that WOW factor with unexpected - and even over the top - elements. A fab light fixture, a statement chair or a beautiful rug can make your room look different and unique, but my favorite way to add character to any room is definitely wall treatments.

Paint, molding and wallpaper! Changing the structural elements of the room will create the basis for amazing design. And from there, the sky is the limit! :) So whether you like a trellis black & gold wallpaper or a clean wall with thick molding, think about investing on this changes first. 

Here are some of my favorite examples of how to use wall treatments to create that WOW factor in any room. Enjoy! xx.

EASY STYLING - FALL DECOR


Don't you love the weather these days? It's time for blankets and tea and getting cozy at home. Today I wanted to share some of my work in progress with you.

When it comes to designing my own space, I take double or triple the time than when doing it for a client. Somehow making decisions takes forever! And so, I haven't been able to make drastic changes in our petite living area except for some curtains! Yei! :) and of course some fall decor. 

Decorating for seasons doesn't mean you have to change everything around.

Incorporating natural elements and metallics makes the space look warmer and more inviting.

How to do it? Include wood and other pieces of nature around your space - I personally love decorating with fruits and flowers. In this case I used lemons on a wooden bowl. Gold velvet pillow covers, pumpkins and a lot of copper are my version of fall orange. And, oh yes... have you seen the amount of gold on my walls? That is just expanding without control and I'm foreseeing a golden explosion at some point! jaja! 

Small changes keep me going, but expect MAJOR changes in here! I have decided to - FINALLY - focus on the design of our living area, and I'm very excited about it! I will be sharing some possible pieces of furniture and obviously a ton of inspiration on Instagram. So, stay tuned! And let me know what you think. I LOVE reading your comments. Have a wonderful day. xx.
