Design Crush

Do you remember this image from Better Homes and Gardens that inspired me ever so much? Well, it's from the home of Amy Meier. This past week I somehow came across her blog and was in awe of other snippets of her home. This is one from her bedroom. Isn't is lovely? The simple color palette has such interest with the use of different patterns. That checked chair is something I so want to recreate.


I then took a peek into her portfolio and instantly new she is my design match. Her traditional design takes on such a fresh and young feel with her use of color, texture, and patterns. What I love most is that every space looks livable even if you have small children like me. I would be ecstatic to have any of these looks for my own home.

WOW! These interiors are really beautiful. Thank you for sharing your new finds! p.s. I am so in love with the David Hicks fabric too, a-m-a-z-i-n-g! Happy New Year, dear! xoxo

Her home is absolutely lovely. I love the shades of grey in the sitting room. That pink bouquet of flowers really pops. I love all the colors she uses in her home that turquoise and butter cream is also quite lovely.

I just looked at her portfolio recently too (I'm assuming because of BH & G). Love her style!

Natasha said...

Such gorgeous rooms! I love the simplicity with all the touches and I can understand why you want to recreate that checkered chair, it's such a lovely peice.

So clean & beautiful without looking sparse!!!

Bryn said...

I have been looking at her portfolio all week, and then you posted this! Too funny.

I love that first image you posted.. I haven't seen it yet but I'm glad you did. I was thinking of a large gingham for the settee in my office and I think that sealed the deal.

How serendipitous!

Ashley said...

I'm so in love with the last picture, Paula! The Ikea bed (which I own) looks perfect against the period woodwork of the fireplace. Lovely all around.

Melissa said...

I would never really think a navy and white checked chair could look so amazingly chic! Especially when it's next to some gorgeous navy and white print drapes with a striped throw. I'm lusting over that little reading nook!

Danielle said...

Gorgeous for sure and I love those grey velvet sofas...they are stunning and would match almost any decor I would think!

Julie said...

I seriously love her work. Found her a few months back and felt similarly to you - her style is so perfectly "me" - as in, it's completely traditional, with touches of girly, touches of rustic, touches of preppy .... rarely does a designer come along who I'd be happy to live in all their spaces. Love.

Sarah said...

Love these pics! THose grey sofas are so dreamy!

SHERRY HART said...

She is one talented babe!!! Great images.

Kathysue said...

I am a blue and white fan and plan on adding more of it to my home this year. Love the buffalo check chair!!! I am also a stripe, check gal!!! Love your blog,Kathysue

elissa, ebb & flow said...

Cassie said...

These images all made me oh and ah! The look of the dusky blue sofa is just stunning. I loved that image originally too and it have been printed, saved and tumblred by me, so thank you for sharing further inspiration from this talented lady.
