Homes From The Archives

Natalie Catalina for Catalina Creative

I have a never-ending list of bookmarked homes that I always hope to share on the blog, but this little blurb will have to do. I swear a couple of these have been in my archives for over a year! But they're still just too good to pass up. If you haven't already peeped these beauties, read more about them below...

 

a historic washington, d.c. home

of course I have to start with a piece of serious interior envy in my own neighborhood. This gorgeous georgian residency dates back to 1754 and is decorating floor to ceiling in elegance and class. what i love most about this home is the beautiful wallpaper adorning the entryway from the 1800s, the mix of modern and antique furniture, and the overall detailing that pays homage to its historic timeline.

bahama vibes in a nyc apartment

this charming apartment in the city is filled with jungle fever, beach vibes, and a casual cool atmosphere - a rare entity for nyc life. rebecca de ravenal adorned her home in vintage collectables from her family, acquisitions from her stay in the bahamas, and all things blue. this place is heaven to me.

a southern revival l.a. home

this los angeles beauty is painted pretty with southern charm...and it works. the use of color in each room is what really attracts me to this home. a quaint and simple living room, a family area with green carpeting and mushroom stools, and the most beautiful home office filled with touches of pink. an l.a. home that keeps the tradition of east coast charm is something to appreciate.

bohemian chic in naples, italy

designer allegra hicks shares a penthouse with her husband in naples, italy. enough said.  There is nothing boring about this space. from the pattern filled living room, layered with textures, to the master suite painted in blue, with a custom tapestry of the bay of naples, this is truly a special place to live. and who couldn't deal with a bamboo canapy to shade your private terrace?

Powder Room

It's no surprise that we bloggers love gorgeous things. When I see lotions and hand creams with beautiful branding, I must snatch it. A makeup container with gold detailing, it's mine. Anything that can play a part in a daily routine and be a pretty decoration is my usual go-to when I shop. These items are currently on my mind for a bathroom stocked full of pretty products to make getting ready in the morning a bit more enjoyable. See all beauty in my shop Powder Room link.

I'll be traveling to Alabama for my cousin's wedding this weekend! I'm pumped for family time, dancing, drinks, a brewery rehearsal dinner, and a huge southern wedding celebration. Keep tabs on me and my adventures through InstagramTwitter, and even snapchat @natcatalina (if you're feeling so inclined).

AND INCASE YOU MISSED IT: EASY GOING

 

Easy Going

The weather in DC is amazing. The trees are blooming, the cherry blossoms are in full force, and everyone is eating up the spring splendor. This is most likely the best excuse I can offer for my absence on the blog, but who could complain about that? My mood is instantly lifted by some sunshine, warm breezes, and bare legs. I'm taking this season in stride with easy pieces, simple lines, and the classics.

And because I've been so MIA the past couple weeks, see what I've been up to over at my portfolio website. I just completed a fabulous project with Gab over at Savvy Home, creating identity and branding for her aunt's new consignment shop in Montreal, as well as launched a new blog for the stylish Allie Provost. I'm open for new projects now! Meanwhile, be sure to stay in touch on instagram and even through snapchat @nartycv for some gorgeous cherry blossoms and general adventures!
