Anyone into cool pools? Well, I am, and as a designer this makes it to my cool pools image file for sure. Just getting to the final stages of a project of mine #projectbuwest - in which I’ve been so privileged to help transform the exterior hardscape of my client’s’ gorgeous modern home’s poolside- by adding patio tile, AstroTurf, outdoor furniture, Built-In BBQ Island tile and fireplace tile- to put my stamp of design on the home, as well as the clients. Exterior design is just as important as interior design in my book as the two must go together symbiotically to have a cohesively designed home. This “cool pool” is located at la Casa de Alfife, in Portugal.

Talking more about amazing designers I look up to- here’s one. I seriously know she probably matched her outfit to her install this day and anticipated this photo. Good design comes with meditation and planning. Sometimes a “mistake” here or there can work to your favor, and sometimes everything just comes together... but in most cases it’s a designer up all night or in the wee hours of the morning like this one meditating on the day ahead of her/him. Here the great Kelly Werstler says...” I don’t think I can hang this piece of art myself”, goofing off. But just by chance her outfit perfectly contrasts to this art piece, and her shoes even play off the chair in front of her! Then someone behind the lens captures a great shot of her “playing around”. Having a good sense of humor and making design fun is very important too! Don’t take yourself too seriously or you take all the fun out! #amazingdesigners #kellywerstler #greatshots #havefunwithdesign #matchyouroutfittoyourinstall!

I’m sorta on a powder room kick if ya haven’t noticed by now- since I’m working on mine. Lovin’ this tropical wallpaper just to the wainscot and bright white tile backsplash. Rad matte black mirror frame and faucet adds a little edge to the room. As I’m dreaming of somewhere tropical but headed down to my own sanctuary of heaven today- our little slice of Paradise Beach- this bathroom reminds me of vacation mode or summer... so why not just bring it home! If you can’t travel somewhere tropical this summer, a fresh fun leafy wallpaper or something bright and cheerful is a good way to make you feel as if you’re somewhere far away on an island even when you’re hanging at home this year. Kudos to those that have already or are on their summer getaway, but if you’re like me and after the fire want to stay home and work this summer, a little home refresh can make your place feel as if you’re somewhere very special. Who doesn’t want that? #bathroomremodel #summerhomerefreshtime #anyone? #yesplease! #shannonmichelleinteriors // #repost by #shannontateinteriors // 📷 by @joellewest

As I took on the unheard of challenge last week of remodeling my bathroom in a week for some guests coming to stay with us. #theoneweekchallenge . I seriously don’t recommend it to anyone. It turned out pretty damn good I must say for doing it on the fly, yet I decided to hold off on the tile until I found something I Loved, and not just do the white square 4” x 4” on the floor. I’ll release before and afters as soon as the tile and new shower/ bath is done. I love the pop of brass I used in the fixtures. It adds a bit of sparkle to the room, as seen here in a former project I was so blessed to work on with the awesome residential boutique firm @kirstenmarieinc . This designer I owe so much to. She is my mentor and friend. She kicks ass at whatever project she takes on with her “teamKMI”, and I was so lucky to spend 2 1/2 years working with her and learning from her. This is her project she did for a dear client that I loved working on here in Paradise Cove. Taking a small bathroom, like my boys bath, and transforming it to a little gem, with so much style and sparkle. The brass hardware stands out so beautifully against the dark navy, almost black vanity, like stars shimmering in the night sky. I will forever be grateful for my time spent working under such an amazing designer as is @kirstenmarieinc. //📷by the amazing @amybartlam #bathroomremodel #bohoretreatproject #teamkmi #priceless #mentorship #gratefulformymentor #gratefulformydesigntraining #inmypast #givingmewingstofly #foreverlearninginthisbiz #interiordesign

As I decompress from a CRAZy 😜 week... my big install is done for now, and TBC. As for immediate- like tomorrow continues a project I tell my clients to NEVER do. Have you ever heard of the #oneroomchallenge ? Well, as a designer, I say that proper planning and waiting- and not rushing anything in this biz is best, well, I did the unheard of for someone who wishes to go unmentioned at this moment. The #oneweekchallenge . I took on remodeling a small kid’s bath in one week to ready it for their guests. Aside from all my advise, this person was so persuasive, as they had everything ready to be put to work, and as long as everything goes smoothly- this bathroom will be transformed from the bathroom that was “I don’t want to spend any money on this until I can gut it” bathroom- to the right step in a soon to be show stopping bathroom- I can’t wait, as when the vision for this fully is put to the works- will be awesome! Using a wall mounted, brushed brass faucet and lever handle like this. BTW- I’m obsessed with the gorgeous details of this modern- yet, refined bathroom with some very classic elements to it- like the rough cut tile. Adding a cool texture to the walls in juxtaposition to the black framed more modern shower door frame, and brass finishes is RAD! This vanity is to lust over for sure!! #Vanitycandy!!! 😂 If anyone knows who designed this bathroom please 🙏 tag them below for me! #oneweekchallenge #IsOn! and #intheworks #alreadydemoed and #newdrywallhung and #smoothcoated #bathroomremodeltime #shannonmichelleinteriors

Loving this feature tile wall design. It reminds me of the black and white chevron tile I’ve just had laid for a client of mine’s project, this is smaller scale, and pretty awesome as a feature wall- ceiling detail. It adds a little Art Deco twist to this space... If Art Deco/ Industrial was a style, this is it, and I’m lovin’ it! Love the color or the cabinetry as well. If anyone knows who this design is by please tag them here!! #artdeco #industrial #interiordesign #tilestyle #blackandwhite #deeptealcabinetrycolor #blackframedglassdoors #designerlove

Dreaming of somewhere bright, earthy and airy... with just the right amount of a pop of blue ocean in the near distance- like this beautiful space. In my designer dreams I am brunching here with my ladies. Girls trip anyone??? Who wants to find this place with me and cheers to that! Happy Sunday World! Finding my pop of blue ocean in pictures today as I’m surrounded by this June Gloom here in the Bu. Happy to have my brother in town entertaining my kids this morning. Resting before another week of installs and furniture deliveries wohoo!! #naturalelements #earthydesign #wovenpendantlight #lettingthelightin #neutralcolorpalette #popofblueocean #yesplease #letsgirlstriphere!! #inmydesignerdreams #happysundayworld #interiordesign #patiodesign of @niovavilla 📷by @livingatno.50

Surrounded by curved arches, beautiful lime washed walls... and endless blue sea. Who wants to sail away like me this summer?! I do in my mind, but bound here doing little trips with the kids. Still planning my Europe trip next summer in my head, and gorgeous Santorini is on my buckets list for sure! - “It’s the dream of anybody who loves sailing to wake up with your boat outside your bedroom.” -Costis Psychas said for his design concept of beautiful Hotel Santorini. #hotelsantorini #europetravel #bucketlist #interiorarchitecturaldesign #limewashedwalls #curvedarches #sailawaywithme #inmydesignerdreams #repost by @elledecor

This bathroom by @sarahshermansamuel for the amazing @garancedore from @dominomag is so beautiful and elegant, just like it’s France born owner. The rose quartz accent color is a gorgeous girly touch to the white @fireclaytile wall behind it- handmade tiles with the perfect amount of sheen to them...and ooooh, that round white tub and those gold fixtures! Oh so pretty. I can’t wait to do two bathroom re-models sometime in the near future to my home, and this is my new master bathroom inspo photo for my someday shower/bath wetroom. Thanks @sarahshermansamuel for continuing to inspire and wow me as a designer. 👏👏👏 // 📷by @jasonfrankrothenberg // styled beautifully by @thelocationist_ ❤️ the pampas grass!

I’m working hard right now on my #projectbuwest ‘s pool patio’s hardscape... and have learned that the right selection of tile is the key to success with this one. Well, I think between my good sourcing and my client’s good selecting we’ve done it! As my awesome client’s home is very modern in style- beautiful white stucco with black cased windows...adding a bit of #tilestyle with bold patterns, in high contrast black and white is fun for the backyard. Like seen in this inspiration photo I used at one of my client meetings, we chose a chevron tile pattern for their patio area. I can’t wait to disclose photos of this baby of mine in the making ready to come out and say hello to the world soon... it is almost complete! Keep checking my Insta stories for progress stories if this sounds right up your design alley. Patio tile in, Firepit Tile in tomorrow, Outdoor Shower Floor tile and BBQ tile next, then the fun patio furniture arrives... and ready, set, shoot 📸ready soon! #shannonmichelleinteriors #interiorandexteriordesign #blackandwhitetile #hardscapedesign #moderntribalstyle

What the right art can do to a space... Transform it. These Huichol Indian Bark Art Pieces are so intricate and gorgeous up close. They fit my client’s Spanish Mediterranean Home so beautifully I hand carried them back from my trip personally as well as my 2 1/2 yr old son and all our luggage- so they could find their new home on my client’s wall. This is just a little slice of my #projectretreatinmalibu ‘s Dining Room, done in a neutral color scheme with pops of black and white. So excited for these pics and other project pics of mine to soon be seen on my upcoming www.shannonmichelleinteriors.co website/ design portfolio/ E-Commerce shop. Coming soon! Keep ya posted! #shannonmichelleinteriors #interiordesign #sourcingevenwhenonvacation #ilovemyjobthatmuch // 📷 by @marisavitalephoto

This post is dedicated to all the Mothers out there in the world. I hope you find some time to yourself this week or even this month to just be you, let go of the stress of being a Mother, and just be free. I took the time today to go on a run in one of my favorite places on earth, and chase the beautiful butterflies God has gifted us with right now here in Malibu through their migration. I am taking the time to be thankful for the growth and re-birth I see around us here in nature since the fire, and in my life this new year as a Mother. I am taking a moment to share my on going prayer with you- of forever becoming a better Mother, as I am only human, and my patience can wear thin at times. Especially when the stress of work and family or social commitments, overwhelm me. Thank you God for teaching me everyday how to take on a new day of children, and work requirements with a feeling of “I got this!”... and do my best each day. Because moms, that’s all we can do! Speaking blessing on this world of Mothers, as human life would not be- without us. a #mothersdayblessing from #onemothertotheworld #HappyMothersDay2019

Loving this kitchen by the amazing @sarahshermansamuel . She is no doubt developing as one of my new favorite designers with her fun twist she puts on things such as her custom new half moon pulls she designed for her website. So excited to be using these babies for my clients new built in cabinet being installed soon. Going to be gorge!

TGIF World! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been so slammed with work that this week has been exhausting. The month of May is crazy! Everyone trying to get things finished before summer starts. This summer I can’t get away with my current work load, but I am already researching destinations for my Europe trip next summer... and this gem of a boutique hotel and spa is on my list!! The “Aquatio Cave Luxury Hotel and Spa” infinity pool is seen in this first photo. The pool is built within an entire grotto!! If you don’t know what a grotto is, it’s a pool of water with a white limestone bottom that has phosphorescent plankton in it, giving the water this magical iridescent blue. Don’t worry these plankton are microscopic size, so if I hadn’t had said anything- you wouldn’t even know they were there. Basically you think you’re swimming in this blue magic water in a spa.... so I’m there!! Scroll left to see the next picture of the spa built into the side of a cave. This type of architecture in which you feel one with Mother Nature as you are literally dwelling in a gorgeous limestone walled cave, I find adventurous and thrilling. I also gain inspiration from this creativity, for my ongoing love affair with interior design and amazing architecture. The chaise lounges are all molded in a reclining position from white polyurethane. As a working mother this looks like a cloud of heaven to jump into, fall asleep getting a facial and wake up in bliss. The following photo is of the town of Matera- the hill top town of sassi (or rocks in Italian). The Hotel is built within 6 different leveled caves of beautiful white limestone. It was designed by the Tusan born Architect Simone Micheli, and I am so enthralled by his ability to use Mother Nature in a truly inspiring way to build, I can’t wait to visit there! This designer gives him a 👏👏👏 huge round of applause for his work. #travelbucketlist #nextyeareuropetrip #destination #architecturalgem @aquatiocave Thank you to @interiordesignmag for continuing to show me awesome and innovative design in this world such as this place. // 📷’s by Jurgen Ehein

As I drove by this sign today coming home from a long day of sourcing and buying in town, my heart started to race and pop out of my chest remembering how I almost had not one- but multiple heart attacks last night. Funny story- when I was pregnant with Drake and overdue, I watched Homeland and literally went into labor watching it. Well, if I had had him in my tummy last night I wouldn’t have even made it to the hospital without giving birth! Any ladies overdue??Watch next weeks G.O.T.s and I bet you’ll have your baby!! #gameofthrones2019 is probably #causingheartattacks , let’s hope for #livebirthsinstead #cannotwaitfornextsunday #todieagain

This Art Nouveau crazy styled door designed by Ernest Delune in Brussels, looks like it has magic behind it when you open it... it could lead you anywhere... it is like life. I have to say for many I know are re-building our lives after the massive destruction we faced last year. I hope everyone who have been challenged by life last year have opened their door (heart) to the new beginnings of the new year, and then taken in all of this Spring’s beautiful wildflowers around us, which I believe is God reminding us that beauty can come from ashes. Well, I’ve opened this door to a new year welcoming all good that can come my way... bring it on.. Spring has been magical, and Summer is right around the corner. Bright colors and endless beach days ahead, as well as beautiful new projects on the horizon. “You just have to have faith in who you are and find the right frequency”- A Wrinkle In Time. I hope people have found that again, as I have. #openthedoor #seewhatliesahead #goodthingsarecoming #ifyoubelieve #springhassprung and #summerisahead #havingapositiveoutlook #thisnewyear to #rebuildmalibu #tostartanew #freshpaint #isagoodthing #forusall #artnouveaulover #doorstyle #ernestdelune #brusselsbelgium #architecture #exteriordesign
