Guest Post: Camo Decor

I think we are all loving the fall fashion reports coming out this year.
One big trend I'm noticing: Camo.
Often, we see fashion sneak its way into decor...but camo? Could this possibly translate?
Head on over to my guest post at The Little Black Door to find out!
I'm filling in while Elizabeth is away on vacation with a little guide on how to get the military motif in your own home without it looking just plain weird.

Now go check it out! (Sir, Yes, Sir). A-ten-hut!


Bespoke closet cabinetry by Lefèvre Interiors


As summer holidays are finished and everything is going back to normal, the employees in our workshop are busy preparing and finishing clients’ projects.

I would love to share with you today one of our latest projects we are working on : a bespoke wardrobe closet created from highly durable french oak.

After having discussed the design with our clients, I tried to collect some images for my inspiration (I am sorry to not know the source of them), before starting the design plans of the cabinetry.

Here below I posted 2 pictures of the progress in our workshop.

Green and Wicked

The day I've been waiting for is almost here at last. On Saturday, I'm going to be seeing the Broadway hit musical 'Wicked'. Tickets weren't cheap and sold out fast but my friend Melanie, Caitlin and I got our hands on some!

In honour of the Musical, which takes place in Oz, I'm sharing with you a favourite space with hits of the colour of the Emerald City:

This space was designed by Sarah Richardson and aired on season 2 of Sarah 101.
To say I'm green with envy is an understatement! Can you believe that green leopard print?

Just for a little fun, here is an old (2008) and embarrassing photo of Mel, Cait and I in our 42nd Street costumes, which we performed on the very same stage where the talented performers of Wicked will be performing on Saturday! I'm in the lighter blue, if you couldn't tell.

Beds in Front of Windows

Over here at Casa Lewis I have a bedroom conundrum.

Currently I have my bed against a wall...which looks great

However, with tiny closets and an ever growing collection of crap


I have a large window in my room which if I put the bed up against would make me have like 10x more space...

I as a designer know, that beds in front of windows are totally acceptable

But the duck....he's not so sure.

Lets take a look at some amazing bedrooms where beds in front of windows totes works

Wednesday's Sketchbook: In Case You Missed It

Hi Loves! Just in case you missed my doodle last Wednesday, which I posted over at the lovely Landi's blog Freckled Confessions, I decided to share it here today.
The bar cart is one of my latest design obsessions. You might remember my vintage brass bar cart that I picked up this summer flea market hunting. Check out my post on that HERE for some amazing decor inspiration. I just finished spray painting it beautiful gold today (as it was fairly tarnished) and can't wait to start styling it!
I drew up my little bar cart with my dream accessories. Some I already own, like the decor books and the vintage crystal decanter (another flea market score), some I'm simply lusting after.

Either way, I've put together this little guide of how to achieve the look in your own place:

1. The Perfect Champagne (seen on most of the inspiration bar carts) - Veuve Cliquot
2. Pretty and fresh green limes
3. Coffee Table Books: Domino and Design Sponge at Home
4. Fresh cut peonies in pink
5. Fun striped paper straws
6. Inkblot Print by The Aestate on Etsy
7. Navy Ikat Bowl
8. A pretty glass wine decanter

Create an interesting vignette by incorporating non-alcohol related products such as art.
If you can't find a bar cart at the flea market (or afford one new..they can be a bit pricey) You can use a tray to achieve the same vibe.

Happy Wednesday!


truer words have never been spoken

We are taking G to Disneyland for her 3rd Birthday next week, and I am counting down the hours minutes and seconds until we are there...
