I have this thing with shoes

Hi Everyone!

May is one of my favourite months of the year.  The days start to get longer, the sun shines a little brighter and I can finally trade in my winter boots for some fabulous footwear.  With shoes on the brain, my mood board for May reflects my current mindset as we move into the warmer months.  Enjoy!

Inspiring Interiors

Interior design and architecture have been a life long passion of mine.  I love how some fresh paint and light can completely transform a room.  One of my favourite interior designers is Barcelona based designer Katty Schiebeck.  Katty is a design forced to be reckoned with.  Her show stopping interiors are a lesson in simplicity and minimalism, and her use of colours and contrasting materials is absolutely breathtaking.  To say that I am obsessed with her work would be an understatement, so it made sense that one of her projects would be the first in the Inspiring Interiors series here on Stylishly Zen.

This project located on the Passeig de Concepcio in Barcelona is part of a conversion project that Katty worked on.  The use of natural light and marble contrasting with dark wood and pops of colour makes this aparthotel a showstopper.  The herringbone pattern on the floor elevates the level of design in the entire space. Simple and elegant, this apartment is straight out of my dreams.
