THE NEW PASTEL

24f873b24a99bd74ffb756afe05597af

When pastels first made their way back into mainstream fashion, I was doubtful that they would last too long. Even for someone like me who enjoys a little powder blue here and there, the saccharine, somewhat traditional color palette is a bit much. But given a new, modern shape, or unexpected twist (like kilim!) suddenly these feminine […]

    I love everything about this post! I really do! I couldn’t agree more on how incorporating pastels with richer, darker colors can create such a lovely color scheme– especially on modern and industrial furniture.

ONE ROOM INSPIRATION :: FRESH COTTAGE STYLE

When I moved into my loft, I didn’t want to let the style of the home dictate too much of what the interior would look like… but it’s hard not to let that happen with brick walls and an open floor plan. So, now that I’m about to have a whole house to decorate, I’m revisiting some of […]

ROOM OF THE WEEK 1.14

I have a new obsession you guys. ATTICS. Remodeled attics to be exact. See, the home I’m moving into with my boyfriend has one that is completely unfinished… and ripe for dreaming! Someday (if all goes well and I still live there in another year), we’d love to renovate it and make it our master […]

    Love everything about this space! To me, attics are a decorator’s dream…they have great light, wonderful angles and a coziness you just can’t find in any other room!
    All the best in your new home:)

    I absolutely LOVE an attic bathroom! I’ve got a friend in SF who’s bathtub in smack-dab in the middle of her attic bedroom and it’s fantastic (even has a skylight above it). Definitely a dreamy space :)

    What great ideas for attic! We have similar attic that I’ve dreamed of doing something with. This certainly gives me something to think about. The white and gold combo are perfect for smaller spaces with angles . Love!!

IN THE KITCHEN :: MOD MEETS FARMHOUSE

Lately, I’ve been drawn to the idea of bold color in the kitchen – specifically in primary tones of red, blue and yellow. But I’m not talking cabinets or wall paint – I’m talking vintage modern accessories mixed with farmhouse style. Think mod pop art, enamelware canisters, schoolhouse clocks and powder-coated industrial stools… In a super warm […]

    I definately agree with you that this is a great idea, by using accessories for that pop of colour!
    For me also full on colour for units and walls is too much!!

    I love the retro feel of your chioces. Updating with accessories means that if you get bored or decide to move on with a different look then it is much easier to update.

PERFECT PALETTES :: RETRO REVIVAL

retro-yellow-pink-burnt-orange-palette

Whenever I’m in an inspiration funk for something to write about on the blog – usually first thing on a Monday morning – I dive into my color files to find something that’s speaking to me. Today? It was this… I’ve really been into these retro-inspired color palettes lately. That vintage brown. A little mustard yellow. […]

    Perfect timing! Though I gravitate to a palette of white and neutrals with texture and maybe some deep emerald green thrown in, I’m trying to be a little bolder in the new place I’m sharing with my boyfriend. Some new-to-us mid century chairs with bright blue upholstery are the jumping off point for this brave new world of colour and this is the kind of fun clashy-contrast that I want to pair it with.
