Trés chic monogram moment


This room is beautiful blue china come to life! We love that one piece can be the inspiration for a whole room! The traditional china hangs in the wall as an art piece that adds fun pattern-on-pattern touch with the wallpaper.

The china was mostly likely a family treasure. The decorator wanted to honor traditional by hanging the heirloom artfully on the wall and even mimicking the patterns and color found in antique china.

The monogrammed bed also pays homage to family ties by displaying the family last name with pride on the linens!
It is blue and white perfection!

We {love} Royal Monograms


You are aware of our love for monograms, they’re the essence of a name and they can mean many things: the beginning of a family or your individuality.  Monograms are expressing something modern, and at the same time full of curves and small details giving a regal feel.


First, let’s define monogram: “a motif of two or more interwoven letters, typically a person’s initials, used to identify a personal possession or as a logo”  A few centuries back different monarchies decided it to mark their armory with their initial.  But in the Victorian era — during the reign of the British Queen Victoria — the tendency really kicked off and monograms turned into symbols of aristocracy.
