Design Crush: Amanda Nisbet

When I grow up I want to be like Amanda Nisbet. What wonderful design talent she has! I love her bold color choices, yet ability to do a subtle, restrained look as well. Above all, her spaces look like FUN, which is something I so agree needs to be a key element in design. You want your home to make you smile right? Well any of these spaces would certainly put a smile on my face!

Love the nail head and trim headboard in this bedroom below

This space just looks like sweet dreams, no?

The bathroom below left is a longtime fave of mine, and the sophisticated girl’s room right is something any teen could grow into and love!

This porch is really an outdoor living room and I absolutely gasped when I saw it- it is amazing. I have a client that I think will gasp at this as well! :)



throwing some modern art on the wall in an otherwise traditionally decorated home gives an unexpected kick of high design to a space. And those deep blue walls would be so perfect in a den or media room!

I think purple and yellow are going to be big this year- these two bedrooms have just the right punch of color (and that chandy is to die for)

Loving the glossy black faux bamboo bed on the left, and the deep indigo walls paired with a rich orange and lanterns at right.

Another dreamy bedroom…

Fantastic uses of red below- I love how the couch fits snugly into the built ins below left, and the use of the large Oly pendant lights above the island- oh, and those killer vintage lucite stools!

This entry below left is simple and stunning- running striped wallpaper in a horizontal direction mixes things up nicely. The banquette seating below right is ideal for family style dinners (and loving the silhouettes in bright colors!)

Do you have a crush now too? :)
