When it comes to men, they always have the most stylish, well equipped and cozy ‘man caves’ (larger than life TVs, game stations, La-Z Boy recliners anyone!?!….) so why can’t women have their own personal room to get away and relax in? A couple of days ago, I was invited by Chairish, along with other bloggers, to create a style board of my ideal feminine ‘cave’ using one of their popular bar stools. And since I’m a long time fan of their awesome online marketplace (filled with one of a kind vintage goodies, furniture, jewelry, you name it….) I was more than happy to accept the challenge. So here it goes, the style board inspired by Chairish products along with my dream ‘diva cave’ must-haves:

One of the first times I got the impulse to tear out a magazine page, and keep it as inspiration for years to come, was when I saw a perfectly decorated room by designer Lynn Morgan. Bright and serene, most of her interiors combine the classic Southern elegance with fun dashes of color and modern elements.

At times like this, when the weather is improving and I’m finally ready to spend some time outdoors, that my garden envy kicks in. Our current living situation is great, although it doesn’t allow the time nor the space for a proper garden to care for (city living does that to you).  But that can’t stop me from daydreaming, right? Here are some of my favorite picks when it comes to great garden design and patio inspiration. Enjoy!

Morpholio Board is a cool design app I’ve discovered recently that is ideal for creating professional looking mood boards and collages. Particularly useful for designers (but not only), boards are visual aids for communicating design ideas more effectively. Whether you’re planning to redecorate your home, or just looking for inspiration, this app can become seriously addictive 🙂

It has some easy to use features and comes with a built-in library of designer products (although it can access virtually any online source), great fonts and graphics. The  downside: currently available only for iOS mobile devices.

 What happens when you bring together on a project one of America’s most acclaimed architects and a mega talented interior designer? Well, for starters, very happy clients and a guaranteed feature in a shelter design magazine. This month’s issue of Elle Decor tells the story of a Manhattan couple that decided to purchase a 19th century abandoned camp in Mill Valley, California, with the hopes of transforming it into their dream family residence. With a shared attachment to happy childhood memories of camping days and mountain trips, the couple researched for an architect /designer team that would be respectful of their property’s history, details and rustic appeal while making it suitable for young family living; enter architect Gil Schafer and London based designer Rita Konig. Far from being in a habitable state, Gil and Rita had three years to work their magic and turn the property into a functional, stylish home. It’s too bad there are no ¨before¨ pictures but the ¨after¨ ones are simply stunning!
