I heart New York. The only thing better than going to New York is going for design inspiration. Earlier this week the Big Apple was host to ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) and Blogfest 2013, which included a tour of Kips Bay Show House. Inspiration trifecta! It was so fun to see designer/design blogger friends and meet new ones. Kravet did a spectacular job with Blogfest – everybody who attended had a wonderful time and learned a lot.

Below is a photographic tour of Kitchen and Bath trends 2013: Continue reading

This ad by Maxalto ( a B&B Italia brand) makes me swoon~To my eyes it presents perfection where Classic Meets Contemporary. While it looks casually designed, there is nothing done by chance here, it is a work of sophistication and carefully chosen details.
