Cristin's Favorite Interior

Today I am so very happy to say we have Cristin from Simplified Bee here to share her favorite interior!  I'm sure most of you know Cristin already {and probably adore her blog as much as I do} so she doesn't need much of an introduction.  Cristin is a professional organizer and designer in San Francisco and of course is a wonderfully successful blogger, she was one of the people who actually inspired me to start mine!  Anyway, Cristin's pick for "Favorite Interior Tuesday" is {needless to say} incredibly beautiful, so let's get to it, shall we?

I was thrilled when Staci asked me to participate in her “Favorite Interior Tuesdays.” However, pinpointing my favorite interior design is an impossible task; There are so many fabulously talented interior designers out there!
What I decided to do is focus on my favorite at the moment. I love this interior design for several reasons: 1. It’s Jennifer Lopez’s LA home and I am a huge fan of this season’s American Idol, 2. It was designed by the very talented designer Michelle Workman and 3. The space glamorous and opulent, yet inviting. It was also recently featured in Veranda, so let’s take a closer look!

The kitchen is perhaps my favorite room that was featured. In the space Workman incorporates cool and calm gray-blue cabinets with white countertops, mirrored backsplash and vintage-inspired black oven range. Double sinks, plenty of work space and two dishwashers? I could live with all that. It’s a spectacular kicthen.

In the living room, a gray-blue color palette is again used, but this time pairs it with taupe and gold. Workman selects custom klismos chairs in Calvin Klein Home fabric for Kravet with a romantic tête-à-tête sofa {Michael Berman Limited} in Casamance fabric. Tucked in the bay-style window, a white lacquer grand piano awaits.

The dining room the Cole & Son wallpaper is a soft pink hue sets a feminine tone. The long dining table is paired with Baker tufted side chairs in a sophisticated silver velvet and nailhead trim. The Swarovski crystal chandelier adds a touch of Hollywood glam that keeps up with the trend-setting A-list star’s image.

I love this guest bedroom in a sweet peach. What guest wouldn’t love this romantic retreat? The custom tufted bench, chandelier by DK Living and wall art by Jean Cocteau and Ana Carballosa are my favorite elements.
So there it is, my favorite interior design at the moment. Thanks again Staci for inviting me to part of your series!

Sigh.  What a gorgeous home - Jenny's not on "the block" anymore!  I am very much in love with the lighting, and I have to agree with Cristin on the kitchen being my favorite room.  Thanks so much to Cristin for sharing this space, I'm sure you all enjoyed it, and don't forget to swing by Simplified Bee to say hello!

  7. I love that home too- but was kind of surprised it belonged to JLo! I don't know why, but thought her home would look different??!! And, I'm so laughing about your comment on your hair- I wouldn't have taken a picture either:)
