For a meeting next week we have been trying to find inspiration for a more formal guest bath.  The vibe is a classic, traditional, yet chic look.  Our usual wallpaper look has been replaced with decorative, painted, maybe lacquered molding.  We are thinking about picture molding, maybe french inspired for the main guest bath on the first floor.  The formality and beauty of it will meld perfectly with the ornate limestone entry.  To pull this off you really need to work with a master carpenter.  Molding this detailed will look cheap and cheesy unless done perfectly.  The color is TBD, but I love the look of the above blues and grey.  Dove white is classic and warm, but paired with a Sherle Wagner sink (similar to the second photo above, but more ornate) we are thinking that a bold color pop is needed.  

For the second guest bath on the first floor we are also going with molding rather than wallpaper, but a more modern version.  The floor to ceiling square wainscoting above is perfect.  I really love the look of this second bathroom.  Each square has a little more detail and the added framework around the window and mirror is gorgeous.  Paired with the antique silver accents it is a timeless, but modern look.

Follow us on instagram at missy_minicucci & therinfretgroup for updated pictures of each projects.  The above will be hash tagged #kingspointproject and we will post photo's of each bathroom and their progress in the next few weeks.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  This holiday has always made me happy because it was a reminder of Spring being right around the corner.  Flowers blooming, longer days, sunshine and more time outside!  It's been a rough winter with a newborn so this year I am counting down the days until I can take long walks with her.   Above are some beautiful, inspirational St. Patty's Day inspired photo's which made me smile.   Below, are our Friday's Favorites featuring some fun green items.  Happy Friday!! It's 5:00 somewhere,  go have a drink :)

This weekend we participated in a wonderful event benefiting a local, Long Island charity.  A few interior designers were asked to decorate tabletops and auction off items for the Junior Welfare League of Huntington's "Camp for Kids".    For 25 years this charity has sent at risk children to summer camp- a happy, carefree time that people take for granted and every child should get to enjoy.  This charity brightens up the lives of many children so we wanted to brighten up the lives of everyone participating in the event yesterday.  That is why we chose the hot pink, white and grey color palette.  Above are some pictures from the set up for the event. 

Obsessed with these kiddies - clearly they were a big help - lol

We had custom placemats made for the event which came out better than we imagined.  Topped with Kate Spade dot dishes and obviously monogrammed napkins. Our flowers were simple - a glass, cylindrical vase in the center of the table with beautiful, white quince and a few, scattered orchids in small terra-cotta urns.  A grey and white large stripe tablecloth trimmed with a gorgeous, knotted samuel & son trim (also used as napkin holders). It was a simple, colorful, happy table - one of my favorites that we've ever done.  We couldn't have done it without Elite Tent & Party Rentals our party planning partners,  Scott & Amanda Schneider (their adorable kiddies are pictured above).  For the best kiddie outfits and outrageous mommy adventures check out Amanda's blog Amanda Beau & Co.

If you follow us you know we have a love, almost an obsession with animal print.  We incorporate leopard, tiger, antelope or any other animal print in every project, in almost every rooms!  In our eyes it is basically a neutral.  This Friday's Favorites is all about leopard print.  Above are fun, colorful leopard fabrics.  We chose to showcase blue because it is the most versatile of the color options, but they also come in pinks, greens, yellows, grey, basically any color your heart desires.  All fabric sources are to the trade only so if there are any that you love contact us!

Have a wonderful weekend!
