Happy Halloween, my dears! We are pretty low key with decorations this year, a few pumpkins, some friendly ghosts and homemade bat streamers (unlike my neighbors who nearly gave me a heart attack the other night with skeletons lounging on their porch…lol). And although it’s the spookiest day of the year (except maybe Tax Day), there’s nothing spooky about this cute little cottage I’m going to show you today.

Designer Schuyler Samperton took care of the interiors and brought all the cozy East Coast vibes into this sunny Sunset Boulevard home. Lots of color and pattern, wallpaper and vintage fabrics make the rooms feel happy and vibrant. No matter the season.

Let’s start with my favorite room of this house, the open plan family room. I love all the cheerful fabrics (Kathryn M.Ireland, Jasper and a Bolivian textile upholstery on the ottoman) and the overall flow of the space. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to have all that gorgeous California light pouring in through the windows.

A designer staple and a personal favorite, Colefax & Fowler’s Bowood cotton is a timeless chintz that interior decorators return to time and time again. In its anniversary issue, House Beautiful included this print among the top five fabrics of all time, the best of the best. Understandably so, since it is delicate and perfectly proportioned, with enough power to carry an entire interior alone. In fact, designer Justine Cushing did more than that, she decorated her family’s summer retreat using this gorgeous print exclusively.

I can’t even deal with the anniversary issue of House Beautiful!!! The entire November edition is dedicated to blue and white, page after page filled with inspiring spaces and timeless fabrics to pore over. And look what I found on the last page! This stunning family room designed by Mark D. Sikes now deserves a post on its own (like most rooms designed by Sikes do)…

Hey, everyone! I hope your week is going great! Today I feel like spreading some love so I wanna share with you a very cool fashion find. I’ve recently discovered a fun blog that I’m now addicted to. Viva Luxury, written by my fashion twin – Annabelle Fleur, is a beauty and travel diary filled with {my} dream outfit inspiration and crazy good photography, so be prepared to spend there some time!!

These are just a couple of Annabelle’s outfits I’d be wearing, you know, if I lived in Paris and all…

A few weeks ago I wrote about a beautiful blue bungalow designed by Lauren Liess and professed my love for its lovely library. The tiny room is covered with floor to ceiling built-in shelving and painted a warm, deep, dreamy blue. A secret doorway leads to a hidden powder room while a cozy window seat offers a comfortable reading space. Need I say more?! 🙂
