I have been in meetings all day today, and I'm just exhausted.
I think I have looked at enough sisal rug samples (wool and natural fiber) for a lifetime!
I decided to take a breather by looking at the website of Jose Solis Betancourt , the divine designer who created the home that is the inspiration for my dream home.
As Joni from the beautiful, funny, and informative blog Cote de Texas mentioned in her comment on my last post, Mr. Solis Betancourt spent several years designing with one of my other favorite designers, John Saladino. I can definitely tell that Mr. Solis Betancourt's designs are influenced by his past experience with Mr. Saladino.
I thought I would share some of my favorite images from his website with you. Hopefully you will find them as soothing as I do.
The neutral color palette with hints of blue are stunning.
I love the curves of the upholstered pieces.
Another calming color palette.
The chandelier is beautiful. It's not too ornate, yet it does give the room some sparkle.
The simple iron rods that Mr. Solis Betancourt uses in several of his interiors are perfection.
This room is just lovely. The bookshelves are a fantastic focal point at the end of the room.
I am hoping to use this bed as inspiration for a project that I was working on today.
The coverlet is simple but elegant. The bedskirt in a complementary stripe is lovely.
The walls are in a similar color to the floor covering. I could relax and unwind in this bedroom.
I always prefer to use an antique cabinet for a sink base.
It's so much more charming.
The rustic beams, the plaster walls, the limestone tiles are wonderful
finish selections. Old baskets are one of my favorite storage
This dining room has a feel of relaxed elegance.
The detailing on the back of the slipcovers is just lovely.
Nothing relaxes me more than viewing the work of an incredible talent. I hope you feel calmer too.
