This classic palette can make the same impressive statement at home.

White walls, for example. They’re ba-ack!

L.A.-based designer Betsy Burnham describes white as the “ultimate palette cleanser”. “I used to think white walls looked unfinished,” she says. “It gives every space — even the most traditional — a modern edge, and sets the stage wonderfully for layers of color in upholstery, accessories, area rugs and art.”

Black and white has been a popular combination in Europe, but Denise Turner, color forecaster and founder of Color Turners has noticed that it’s making its way across the pond. Turner suggests it will take over entire rooms and recommends pairing it with hot accent colors for the latest look.

What do you think? Love it or hate it?

The Glamorous Home

I have spent 7 years of my professional life in the fashion and modeling industry.  Jumping into home decor and design…shouldn’t be any different…. right?

One of my favorite fashion designers made a magnificent point about the relationship of the two industries.

“Whether assembling an outfit or a room in your home, it’s always a question of a good eye, discipline, knowledge, and taste.” – Carolina Herrera

As my career takes a turn into the lucrative world of  home furnishing and design industry, I will keep in mind that it is no different, if not, even more glamorous, than the crazy-busy lifestyle of a Hawaii fashionista.

Hence, ladies and gentlemen, introducing The Glamorous Home– a blog dedicated to finding luxury in your home interiors, furnishing and decor.  It doesn’t matter if your space is big or small, whether you live in the heart of the city or deep in the country, whether you prefer the minimalist  or vintage style— whatever your heart’s desire, I hope to help you in feeling like the King & Queens of your castle.
