lacey floors and lots of red

it looks like we’re keeping the valentine’s day love going this morning with lots of red and a big dose of lace. the red comes courtesy of this week’s guest blogger, abbey nova, who has posted an incredible roundup of red interiors and red accessories over at the d*s guest blog. click here to check them out.

also, emily at wide open spaces sent over this beautiful lace stenciled floor, from a guest house that belongs to the editor of my marrakesh. divine. click here for more info.

  11. We love our lace floor. Melanie at Modello Designs is *amazing*! This stencil is super easy to use and can be purchased right here:

    I just finished my office floor with another custom Modello design and I’m so loving it!!!

  12. Melanie says:

    Oh, how thrilled I am to see our lace stencil here! I just posted pics of this project yesterday on my blog and you can see how *easy* it is to do with a simple stippled paint technique. :)
    Thank you so much for passing it on! It was an honor and pleasure to work with Maryam-and darling Skylar!

  13. Kathryn says:

  15. Renee says:

    Stunning! I love the wallpaper too…

  16. I LOVE it!! I don’t know how they did it, but I may try something similar on my floor. The cat looks just like mine a total cute!!

  17. Lovely stencil but unfortunately a bit too pricey for my budget…

  18. lenny says:

    very cute. i did this once with vinyl lace table runners i got at the 99 cent store as a stencil. my entryway was matte red, but needed dimension. i started halfway up the wall and spray painted clear glossy. it was awesome!

  19. Kate says:

    Does anyone know what kind of flooring this was done on? Was it done on wood flooring?
    I wonder if I wanted to do this on a bathroom floor, what kind of raw material should I have on the floor?

    1. grace says:


      i could be wrong, but they look like concrete or some sort of smooth stone finish.


  20. DDekor says:

  21. Benson says:

  22. glenda says:
