This is my 10th blog post! Hooray! Clear evidence that I am thoroughly enjoying this new world of blogging. Today I want to celebrate one of my favorite designers - Monique Lhuillier! What is there not to love about her and her work? She is the epitome of the successful, chic, and modern woman. Talking about her excites me not only because she is a fellow Filipina (born to French and Spanish/Filipino parents) and working mom - but because her style is insanely inspiring and encompasses fashion, home, and weddings (all things I adore!). Over the past decade, her business has grown from bridal wear bliss to a huge luxury style label. Her work radiates modern elegance - from her gowns to her table top, home, and fine paper collections.

Below are pictures of her LA home featured in Elledecor in 2008.... SWOON! Simply divine with a neutral palette. The look will be fresh for years to come. A great mix of glamour and simplicity - it is the perfect look for the modern couple because it merges masculine and feminine elements seamlessly.

I just can't tell you how much I love her home (and her adorable family)! Here's a peek at her bedding collection:

And if that wasn't enough eye candy, here are some shots of a tablescape she put together for House Beautiful, featuring her table top collection for Royal Doulton.

An all-white arrangement featuring the simplest flowers -hydrangea, carnations, and roses. I love how it is just so effortlessly elegant with a play of textures. The flowers combined with the rustic logs screams modern chic. I am so inspired!
