GET THE LOOK | stylish sitting room

I came across this simple and cozy sitting room on the web and was instantly intrigued. I read a bit about the design and learned that the room is in Jessica Alba’s home. I am a huge fan of Jessica’s so I love the room even more. The warm brown walls wrap the room in a blanket of color. A mix of materials- leather, ceramic, and metal add interest and balance to the space. Can't you just imagine wrapping up in a blanket  and reading a book in this cozy sitting room? 

You can achieve this stylish sitting room look yourself with items 
available through J. McIntyre Home.

white ceramic garden stool - brown leather cigar chair 
silver side table- woven rug - geometric fireplace screen- and a fresh coat of paint

Until next week,

INSPIRED | traveling tuesdays


I am never more inspired than when I travel. Walking the streets of Paris and Barcelona, I couldn't get enough of the wonderful colors, striking architectural elements, and, well, all things beautiful. I snapped pictures of doors, building facades, subway tiles and other unusual eye-catching inspiration. My hope was to come home with new ideas and a fresh perspective. 

These beautiful seafoamy mint doors are framed by this incredible molding and pediment.
This being one of my favorite colors, I am a strong believer that it works in any room on any surface. (my bedroom walls are even this color) And could these beds be more dramatic with their own pediment-like cornice? 

Millwork painted black is handsomely bold. Gold perfectly complements the black.

Maybe an entire room of black and gold isn't for everyone, 
but accents of black and gold are just as wonderful. 

Walking through the metro, these bold subway tiles caught my eye. Paris didn't miss a beat. They created visual interest anywhere they had a chance.

Yellow, gray, and blues work well together. Even in more muted tones like these. 

Eiffel Tower leg. Intricate and stunning. 

Your spaces can be just as eye-catching. Well, maybe not AS eye-catching, but still fabulous. The screens dividing this bedroom add texture and dimension to the space. 

Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

Catch phrase of the client household currently - "neutral with pops of color." Make the background neutral, and add pops with pillows and art. 

Versailles masters the use of florals and color. 

Florals still lend themselves to traditional rooms, but it's easy to give it a fresh twist with fashion-forward colors and eclectic furnishings. 

I was walking through Barcelona, and this building spoke to me. It said Sic'em. 

Think outside of the box, and be inspired by the unexpected. 

Hasta luego,

INSPIRED | traveling tuesdays

Hello friends, 

     Last week I had the chance to explore Paris and Barcelona. So for the next few weeks, be prepared to walk with me through these fabulous cities. The colors, the food, the architecture - inspiration around every corner.

     My last day in Paris, I took a quick train ride outside of the city to Versailles. Oh my goodness. Talk about opulent. The ceilings were unbelievable. I couldn't stop looking up. 


     So what's going on with your ceilings? Probably nothing as ornate as Versailles, but ceilings should not be forgotten. Ceilings are a great opportunity to add architectural interest, color, or pattern. 

Don't just look out, look up, 

Sarah T.
