TV's Above The Mantel

In honor of the upcoming Super Bowl I thought a television design related post would be suitable. In the past I have featured posts showing ways to hide your tv above your mantel, but this year I am embracing the TV and featuring inspirations showing the tv above the mantel! Do you plan on watching the Super Bowl at home or do you go out to watch it?

Windsor Smith

I wanted to share some of the beautiful work from California based designer, Windsor Smith. She is known to mix antiques with modern elements. Windsor Smith even designed the Veranda showhouse (which also featured works of other designers) that was purchased by Gwneth Paltrow, who we know has impeccable taste. You can bring a little Windsor Smith into your home as she has a fabric line with Kravat, her own home line and Room in a Box design service.

Benjamin Moore's Galveston Gray kitchen complete with LaCornue stove and gorgeous marble farmhouse sink.

Contemporary sofa in a traditional style room

Way to break up a large living room into seperate spaces. Notice the horse in the rigth hand door :)

A room with a patterned floor offers variation against the hardwoods

Herringbone patterned floor and love the framed intaglios

Color coordinated books for the library

Large ottoman is the center focal point of the room and the double sided sofa makes two seating areas.

Exotic touch mixed with the modern with the marrakech type shape of the side tables to the pagoda style  light in the kitchen.

Detail in the styling

Marble and pink feminine bathroom

Antique silver mirrors paired with calcutta marble. Scalloped mirror from Windsor Smith.

Neutral and symmetric bathroom

Hallway styling with Hermes orange boxes and beautiful staged bar

Chic mudrooms

Tartan and wood gives these rooms a masculine feel.

The most glamourous stable I have ever seen.

Sarah Vickers Preppy Closet

One of my favorite preppy eye candy fashion blogs is Sarah Vickers of Classy Girls Wear Pearls. Vickers is a cross between Kate Middleton meets New England prep. She posted a picture of her new cedar lined walk in closet she received for Christmas which was beautiful. We all know I love a great closet and this beautifully showcases her amazing wardobe as well!

Northern Lights in Iceland

I am starting to have a little time to upload some of my pictures from my camera from our Iceland and Germany trip. Here are a few photos of the Northern Lights we saw which was on my bucket list. On our first full night we got the call from the photograthat they lights were out and he quickly picked us up and we headed about 5 miles outside the city to get away from the light pollution. We were by the water and near the lighthouse. The ligths were lower activity, but at least we still got to see them.

We went out with Olgeir Andresson who is a famed Northern Lights photographer in Iceland whose photos have been featured in Times Square, on the Iceland postage stamp and various websites and publications. He helped me set up the tripod in the dark, get my camera settings right to be able to shoot the lights and the motivation and company to stand out in the chilly weather for 2 1/2 hours. So if you go to Iceland and want to go out to see the lights and photograph them with the pro, definitely look him up!

This is a little blurry since we had to try to stay still for 15 seconds which was the exposure we had to use in the dark.
