Stick with this video of cats and dominoes until the end; it’s worth it.

Color, Texture, and Layers

These days, I spend most of my leisure time either seeking inspiration or planning decor for my new home. I’m drawn to designs that mix pattern, color, light, and texture. One such design is the Maison de la Luz hotel in New Orleans by Studio Shamshiri. It’s visually rich and decadent and yet somehow manages to remain approachable. While I doubt I’ll get anywhere near this bold of a statement, I do look forward to incorporating touches of approachable fun and visual richness.
