Dream Home: Camille Styles

Entrance_CamilleStyles

Camille Styles here, so excited to be stopping by La Dolce Vita to share a few snippets from my "dream home" with all of you today! Every once in a while, I spot an image of a room that's so perfect, so balanced, so me that I literally can't get it out of my head. So, when my husband and I started the journey of designing and building our own dream home 2 years ago, those images became my go-to source for inspiration on color palette, layout, materials and textures. Today's post is a little peek into my home workbook, and this foyer pictured above sets the perfect tone for how I want guests to feel as they enter my home. Serene, organic and a bit like they've suddenly escaped to a Mediterranean island...

Bedroom_CamilleStylesSince this is my dream home, we might as well explore it in the context of my dream day, don't you think? The morning begins in this perfectly airy bedroom with a heavenly canopy covered in swaths of white. I lounge in mounds of down with a cappuccino and stacks of magazines, easing into a new day.

Master_Bath_CamilleStyles Can you imagine a more perfect space in which to get ready? The grid of high contrast framed photography is so striking, and the geometric display keeps the look serene. A pedestal tub centered perfectly underneath a lavish chandelier adds major romance to the scene. Guest_Bedroom_CamilleStylesMy house guests must be treated to an equal level of luxury, and I don't think anyone would complain in this all-white and cream haven, grounded with dark floors and the most perfect cowhide rug. Kitchen_CamilleStylesI love how this kitchen mixes state-of-the-art appliances with vintage restaurant-style charm. Soapstone countertops and to-the-ceiling shelving are beautiful and functional. And oh, that fireplace!

Reading_Nook_CamilleStylesAfter brunch I'd retire to this zen-like reading nook for daydreaming, blogging and maybe a long chat over coffee with a girl friend. Can you tell that I'm a big fan of symmetry? 'Cause I am.

Terrace_Pool_CamilleStylesA girl's gotta get some sunshine, and I can't think of a better place for it than this elegant, European-style lap pool. The lines are clean and the landscaping's pristine. I could definitely spend an entire afternoon hanging out right here.

Living_Room_CamilleStylesMy living room strikes the perfect balance between contemporary and cozy. Yes, it's monochromatic, but the punches of espresso from the tray, pillows and armchairs keep everything really crisp. And my dream home would definitely have those mounds of callas on the coffee table, every single day. Talk about dreamy!

Outdoor_Dining_Camille_StylesThe day ends in this dining room...al fresco, of course! The gravel terrace with oversized lanterns and solid farmhouse-style table is just the type of spot where I'd want to serve long family-style meals that last late into the night. Oh, and in case you're wondering: we did finally move into our house in April, and it really is my dream home. I still need to post about the entire space, but for now, here's a quick peek at my home office. Thanks so much for having me Paloma, and would love to hear what all of you think of my choices!
