BATHROOM CRAZE: CIRCULAR MIRRORS

Currently, I am going hysterically crazy over bathrooms that are designed around circular mirrors. Don't get it twisted; I will never take anything away from square mirrors, it’s just that for my design preference now, square mirrors are considered the norm in bathroom design. It seems when displaying a circular mirror, there is a different vibe transcending throughout the space. It’s as if they give way to some major drama with a new and profound aspect. In my bathroom suite, I removed the over-sized square mirror that took up much of the wall space and I am in the process of replacing it with a variety of mirrors. Yes, a variety of circular mirrors that is going to be beyond gorgeous! 

However, I am marinating for a couple of days on what direction I will go as far as the overall layout on the wall. Oh, and I am also waiting on my creative juices to give me the unique aesthetically pleasing vibe that I want to feature throughout my bathroom suite. In the meantime, I came across some bathrooms that are showcasing circular mirrors and packing a powerful punch!

K2 Design Group, Inc.

How gorgeous is this bathroom? It is beyond gorgeous! The circular theme features semicircular handles, circular mirror, and wallcovering. The overall space is balanced, gorgeous, and well-designed.

Casey & Fox

The perfect blue for a perfect backdrop.

The collaboration of furniture-like cabinets (black), vessel sink, and white walls along with a beautiful black & white tile flooring create a beautiful contrast throughout this bathroom.

LevEco Architects

I love the wall mounted sink with the open cabinets below. The beige backdrop and the beige tile flooring complete the overall bathroom.

 M.A.P Interiors, Inc.

All I see from this bathroom is the power of red. Screaming electric red. . .   . . .red tile, red walls, red cabinets paired with a vessel sink and concrete floors packs a powerful punch throughout this bathroom.

House of Amelia

Furniture-like cabinets, vessel sink, brown mosaic tile, granite countertops, and travertine floors make for a beautifully designed bathroom.

Chinera Interior Design

Yes, psychedelic is screaming loudly throughout this bathroom. The bold orange walls pave the way for a bathroom that is vibrant as well as a definite statement maker.

WHAT TIME IS IT? IT'S THE WEEKEND BABY!!!

It’s Friday and the weekend is officially here . . .   . . . yayyy!!! Even though my agenda for the week was filled with meetings, several design projects, a new marketing project, and preparing for an interior shoot as well as a personal photo shoot, I promised myself never complain about having an agenda that is filled with goodies which make me who I am. First and foremost, I will not complain because I am so beyond blessed to live each day doing what I truly love. And finally, I know that God will never give me anything that I cannot handle because he loves me unconditionally!

Kudos,

LONG HIATUS: BACK TO BLOGGING

Happy Monday! And here goes to a quick rundown on what has been happening in the life of Kimberly C. Lyons the founding owner of KCL-IDESIGN, LLC. As an interior designer, I went through a major transformation on how to successfully prioritize my life along with my business. During my transformation, I had to re-evaluate and make some decisions as well as changes. Who I am as an interior designer didn’t change because out of everything, I already knew without a shadow of a doubt that I was born to be an interior designer as well as own my own design company. However, the challenge came more on how I was going to branch out, add more layers, and elevate my overall brand.

As I was transforming, the transitioning was taking place as well. During it all, I did some extensive traveling around this big beautiful globe, which has taken me to some amazing places that I will never forget. I will eventually share my travels in future posts because each one became a part of me through my journey. I must add that during my extensive traveling, one place that helped me through my transformation, as well as my continued transitioning and completely changed my life forever and that was South Africa. OMG. . .   . . .There will never be any words that will describe my experience while in South Africa. When I finally arrived back home which is South Carolina, I was truly complete. There has been a complete overhaul and I can say that I am now officially transformed and have transitioned completely and I am where I need to be.

I now see my life as a unique puzzle with each piece firmly in place. And with that said, it’s time for me to get back to expressing how I am so overly obsessed with interior design. Oh, and by the way, I have included just a snippet of inspiration from the eyes of an interior designer while vacationing in South Africa. As stated, there will be more to come on my South Africa trip as well as my extensive travels around the globe in upcoming posts. In the meantime, I will end by saying, now that I am back to blogging, here goes to the start of something truly amazing!

I just had to take a picture with this stylish piece of furniture. Oh, excuse me, I meant with every piece of furniture. I am so moving to South Africa!

While eating in a very stylish restaurant in South Africa, I had to capture this decorative ceiling. The camera didn't exactly capture the true beauty as being in person but regardless it was beyond amazing!

It was gloomy on this particular day. However, nothing could mess up my stay at Da Vinci Hotel and Suites on Nelson Mandela Square.

Pampered with a dose of chocolate #yummy

The combination of black and white made a powerful statement throughout Nelson Mandela's Hotel. As each one was the perfect complement to the other. White as the backdrop and black added weight and the necessary dramatic details. Screaming #wowfactor! 

Another great combination of black and white.

Fabulous. . .   . . .stylish. . .   . . .wow factor. . .   . . .drama!

Entrance leading into the Da Vinci Hotel and Suites on Nelson Mandela Square. If only I could have taken the chandelier with me :(

So, while I was stuffing my face yet again, I looked up and all I could say was, where is my camera? I had to capture another beautiful ceiling. 

Yikes! Is this the end? I was just starting to enjoy my trip all over again. Anyway, don't forget to check back to see more inspirational images from South Africa through the eyes of an interior designer in upcoming posts.
