Downtown Chic: Designing Your Dream Home: From Wreck to Ravishing

by Robert Novogratz, Cortney Novogratz, Elizabeth Novogratz

Cortney and Robert Novogratz are a fabulous husband and wife design team that have been renovating their own homes for the past 15 years! Their style is a mix of boho chic with thrift store finds and antiques. This book offers tips, ideas, quotes and huge photographs of their work. This book motivates me to get my wishlist together and just start working on small projects one at a time, taking each step as it presents itself!

Not really a how to book, adding in their 7 kids this is more a story about their lives through their interior design process. A gorgeous coffee table book to inspire!

Retro Turquoise and White Kitchen

Amazing and fresh kitchen in white and turquoise with retro elements:

The punchy turquoise hue of the vintage-style appliances puts a chic spin on this coastal kitchen. A tumbled-glass backsplash mimics natural sea glass and contrasts sleek concrete countertops.

Shabby Chic Kitchen in Pastels

Gorgeous shabby chic kitchen in cream and pastel colors: pink and aqua. Lovely ornate elements painted over in a soft cream, a chandelier hangs from the ceiling, retro kitchen aid appliances in pink enamel. Pastel pink vinyl covers the chairs and stools, pastel aqua walls – I am in LOVE with this pretty little kitchen!
