When designing this guest suite it was about three things: comfort, convenience and coziness. The vanity doubles as a desk with easy access to outlets and wifi, a full wall of storage behind lovely doors is designed to handle guest clothes and luggage, a chair is snuggled near the fireplace for late night reading, and a tufted headboard adds a soft touch. Which feature in this room calls out to you?
Which one of these styles speak to your personal taste?
A- URBAN CONTEMPORARY starts with a base of pared down refined yet comfortable furnishings. The emphasis is placed on contrasting natural materials and textures. Nature inspired motifs and textures bring visual and physical comfort to this contemporary living.
B- NEW TRADITIONAL is a blend of modern and classic elements with comfortable furniture, sleeker forms and personal touches. Classic patterns like florals, damasks and architectural fretwork are incorporated into textiles and accents. The overall feeling is less formal; fresh and familiar, current yet timeless.
With Valentine's Day still on my mind, I can't help but think of newlywed lovebirds Sara and Philippe, who lost the loving feeling for their living/dining room in their new home.

I’ve received requests for easy-to-live-with neutral colors and finishes that stand the test of time. This palette of @benjaminmoorepaints and @yorkwallcoverings do just that and also offer a solid ground for accent colors like aqua. @yorkwallcoverings CORK is available in 11 fab colors!

A close up view of @yorkwallcoverings grasscloth pattern IMPRESSIONS. This metallic-backed grasscloth started the madness and since then we have expanded the metallic grasscloth into many variations. Check out patterns ALCHEMY, SISAL, LOMBARD and more at: http://bit.ly/2EPwABn
To make this very small space feel larger, I used texture, color and reflections. Subtle texture comes from the grass-cloth wallpaper, which wraps the whole room in cocoon-like warmth. The metallic backing gives a glowing effect that grabs and reflects the light and makes the room feel like a little jewel box. This @yorkwallcoverings pattern is IMPRESSIONS: http://bit.ly/2BB2kbo
A lovely alternative to get this effect is @yorkwallcoverings pattern RADIANCE. See the Radiance color palette here: http://bit.ly/2Cp80BX
This stunning sandstone-tile fireplace surround stretches all the way to the ceiling. The tile is set close without grout to take advantage of the pattern which is the feature of this room. Custom storage doubles as a hearth and a matching unit provides media storage and base.
Kind of like super hero furniture, this one unit offers an ethanol fireplace, media cabinet, storage and wall mount options - a winner for this bedroom renovation! To see the whole bedroom, visit me on Instagram @candiceolson_ or click here: https://www.instagram.com/candiceolson_/
After the renovation: This kitchen renovation involved the entire floor. We removed two walls, opening the view to the living room and dining room. We relocated the stovetop under the window and the sink was moved to a giant island - perfect for neighborhood gatherings.
Technologies merge with nature for high-tech glamour in @yorkwallcoverings grasscloth ALCHEMY. The metallic background provides the gentle shimmer that I love to incorporate into my work, but it’s the softly variegated hues that make this off-the-charts beautiful!
