made my heart melt monday: a week in belize

i just returned from one of the most beautiful places i've been to...
turquoise clear water and green jungle...belize was un-belize-able!!
i packed my carry on full with resort clothes thinking it'd be a week by the beach sipping on drinks and working on my tan, that really wasn't the case and i LOVED it!
each day was spent doing something adventurous with my husband's family...
9 dives in 4 days- one included 6 sharks at the famous blue hole, one had sea turtles, plenty of rays, eels and tons of fish!
we spent a day deep inside a pitch black cave, the only light came from our headlamps, a little frightening because the mayans believed that cave was full of evil gods and that's where they did sacrifies (eek) we zip lined through the jungle, road dirt bikes through the jaguar preserve, went lion fish hunting (i even speared one myself)...and we fell in love with the small village called hopkins bay!
it was such an amazing break from reality, i loved being in a country that didn't even have one mcdonalds!
i'm hoping i can return to the beautiful land!

my bro-in-law is making a video of our vay-cay,
once it's finished i'll post it!
for now here is a little clip of our break between dives and me after spearing a lion fish!





belize completely made my heart melt!!!
a big thanks to my mother-in-law for making this trip possible.
happy monday!

designer crush: buttazzoni & associes

i'm crushing big time on a french architecture and design firm
i'm in love with their colorful gorgeous interiors.
i love their wacky but sophisticated look,
their material selections are amazing and i love
their eye for design!
i think i'm in love...

the two red glossy doors are amazing, you know i love the neon light above the door on the right!

not sure what is going on with the wall but i love the animal graphics mixed with the large mirror and hanging lights!
this room is stunning, love the art, color combo and that orange coffee table!
a dark and moody space with pops of color are always a win for me.
check out that gorgeous striped floor! i loooove the words on the wall in the left image!
amazing wall art and hanging light!
sleek black and white living room

great green paint detail! 
red cabinets?! love them!
very interesting wall mural
retro pink kitchen cabinets
laurent buttazzoni and frederic lavaud
started buttazzoni and associates in 1995

i hope you're in love too!

what i love right now: a monochromatic room

right now i am loving monochromatic spaces...
(i pretty much love them  all the time though)
i think it's because it's color all over!!
check out these three amazing yellow, red and blue spaces.

how amazing is this yellow room?!
(new space i'm obsessing over)
love the yellow monochromatic vibe with a pop of white.
the ceiling? fantastic!! the lights and chairs...perfection!
such a cool space at monkis headquaters.
Frida Ramstedt

there is something so stunning about this monochromatic red dining space.
i'm thinking it's the sleek hanging backdrop. seems very mistierious!
interior by helenio barbetta

i know i just posted this space a few days ago on the design hunting magazine post
but i seriously love this all blue in bedroom designed by doug and gene meyer

hope you are loving what i love right now!
happy thursday!!
