Guest Bedroom Design Plan

Guest Bedroom Design Plan The Heart's Delight Interior Design Lifestyle Blog

Still on your post-Halloween sugar high!?

I’m coming down slowly… 2 days later.

My kids made sure to give their mom all of their candy rejects — specifically, their Almond Joys which also happen to be my favorite. I know coconut can be polarizing, but I’m a sucker for those little coconut-almond bites of deliciousness. Don’t yuck the yum until you give it a fair chance — or just give all your coconut candy to me!

Now, onto less-caloric business — a renovation house design update!

How To Design A Kid’s Bedroom (That Even YOU Will Love!)

Kids-Bedroom-Design-Tips-The-Heart's-Delight-1.JPG
Perhaps, I should rename this post, “How To Design Kid’s Bedroom WITHOUT Any Terrible Movie/Cartoon/Video Game Characters + Colors That You Despise!

What do you think?

When creating a personal space for both kids and adults alike, it’s important to consider the individual’s personality, tastes and preferences. You want the room to feel like an extension of that person, rather than a hodge-podge of things that are thrown together because they look nice. While children may not always have a say in the way things are done (at least that’s the case in my house!), when it comes to their bedrooms you want them to be a part of the design process.

Master Bedroom Design Plan

Master Bedroom Design Plan The Heart's Delight Stella Compiseno

Shall we chat about the master bedroom design?

The room where all the best night’s sleep goes down.

Is it just me, or do all of the most restful, deep sleeps happen in your own bed!? I could be in a penthouse suite of a 5 star hotel, sleeping on 1000 ct. Frette linen, with some magical self-adjusting mattress, but I still won’t sleep as well as I do in my own bed.

So, in case you were wondering, YES, my master bedroom design plan is fairly important to me!

A Bold + Modern Living Room Design

Modern Living Room Design Plan AFTER The Heart's Delight Stella Compiseno

Question of the day: Is the formal living room officially dead?!

When we went through the process of finding and ultimately buying a house, one of the biggest questions that was thrown around was, do we really need a living room? I’m talking about that more formal sitting space that people used to use a lot back in the day. That is, before open design plans and oversized family rooms with comfy couches and giant 4D flat screen TVS (with surround sound) reigned supreme.

I had actually planned on a very light and happy post about “newsboy caps” this morning, but in light of all of the craziness I woke up to yesterday, it just didn’t feel right.

Master Bathroom Design Plans

I should probably go ahead and title this post: How To Completely Redesign Your Master Suite So That You Can Party (a.k.a. Watch Netflix & Sleep) Like It’s 2017.

One major thing about homes that I’ve learned over the past 2 months — we definitely don’t live like we used to! Back in the 1960’s bathrooms were tiny, bedrooms were dark and closets were nonexistent. One thing the 1960’s did offer: milk delivery — as evidenced by the milk delivery chute relic located on the side of my home. Oh, and vinyl flooring. Those groovy 60’s ladies and gents sure did love them some vinyl floors!

A Modern + Functional Kids’ Bathroom

Modern + Functional Kids' Bathroom Header

Here we are again, with yet another big design decision to make!

This time, we’re tackling the kids’ bathroom — which, by the way, will also be serving as our guest bathroom.

(We apologize in advance to our future guests for any mess our kids may leave behind… because they will.)

Grey + Gold

How’s it going folks?

Did anyone stay up to watch the Emmy’s? I remember being obsessed with award shows and red carpet fashion 10-15 years ago. Not so much anymore. All of the fashion is on loan from top tier designers and styled professionally, so there’s really not much to snark on. Everyone looks put together and fabulous… and isn’t that kind of boring?!

More tragically, I don’t even recognize half the actors/actresses or nominated shows anymore! There is so much new streaming content, I just can’t keep up with it all. I can barely keep up with my reality TV schedule, let alone internet-only, scripted shows!

Clearly, I just aged myself at least a decade with my little diatribe.

Before I dive too deep into my “back in the day” anecdotes, Let’s refocus on the topic du jour: grey + gold — which personally, I think is way more exciting than WHAT CARRIE COON WAS WEARING.

(Full disclosure: I have ZERO idea who Carrie Coon is!)
