Albarosa from Brillante Home Decor invited Michelle from A Schematic Life and Patricia from Patricia Gray Interior Design and myself for dinner this week and we had a fabulous time.
Albarosa’s home is absolutely stunning! Filled with gorgeous art and books from Italy. I was struck by this beautiful vase filled with matching pink tulips on her coffee table when I first walked in:
We tried to get a photo of all of us but didn’t have any success with the camera timer. Patricia managed to get a couple videos of us though (we won’t be showing them however 🙂 I did manage to snap a lovely photo of Michelle snuggling Geronimo!
I had to snap a photo of the lamps she had on the counter/bar area in her kitchen! What a great idea to bring in such wonderful soft lighting. Designers can never have enough ambient lighting. Overhead lighting is for cleaning and that’s about it!
Her whole space was painted cc-700 Smoky Green, just a gorgeous colour. She says it looks bluer during the day and greener at night. Probably due to all the incandescent lighting adding yellow to the colour. It looks so beautiful with all her artwork she says everyone that comes over needs to have the colour chip for themselves.
Of course another light in the bathroom with another piece of art! She said she had the same amount in storage. We offered to store it for her 🙂 It was so much fun to hang out with my fellow designer bloggers, we didn’t leave until 1:00 am!
