On a recent family visit to the college town of San Luis Opisbo, we dined at a lovely Italian eatery- Palazzo Giuseppe. Dinner was delicious!
Shortly, after we cleaned our plates, I excused myself to investigate the bathrooms. (I just can’t help myself).
I pushed through the door and was immediately struck by the soft lavender walls, crystal, floral light fixtures and delicate metallic stenciling. Was I in the same restaurant? I was expecting a classically furnished, dark wood, old world, Italian theme, but instead I was greeted with this soft, ethereal, quasi-French look!
I love surprises, especially when they involve beautiful design.
The color palette is simple but refined and very soothing. Lavender is actually quite versatile – whether on your walls or in your furnishings and accessories, it can be paired with a multitude of other hues, and falls elegantly in line with both modern and traditional looks.

As an interior designer, I am always looking for interesting, creative design that captures a sense of adventure but still functions well in a home environment.
Being a foodie and wine enthusiast, Portland is a mecca for wonderful restaurants. The restaurant’s design is just as important as the food being presented. I especially love going into restaurant bathrooms to see if the design was an after thought OR a delightful extension of the eatery’s overall ambiance.
I am often asking my design friends, “Did you see the bathroom at the new restaurant that just opened?”
There are wonderful creative and exciting ideas to be discovered and used in your own home!
So I will be sharing with you some of my – I SPY – great design – YES in bathrooms!
If you SPY a great bathroom – pass it on!
