I am currently building a home from scratch. I have absolutely no idea what to expect. Of course we worked closely with the architect on the plans, and are knee-deep in the nitty gritty, but I am such a visual person so it's so tough to visualize! My inspo hails from Vanessa Traina’s The Apartment by The Line: rustic, industrial beach chic! I can’t seem to nail precisely what to call our style, but it involves influences from old Parisian apartments in the Marais, to the beachy homes on the Venice canals that one of my fave designers, Amber Lewis, would curate. I am most excited for the master bathroom — it's the one place we are truly splurging on and building a massive shower that spans the width of the entire room complete with marble and brass plumbing. The rest of the house will be more understated, but I think it's jokes to have a room or two that feel like a modern day liberace-esque spa.
