ONE ROOM INSPIRATION :: DARK + PREPPY

gingham study_1

Ok, I know. Dark and preppy aren’t normally words you put together. But maybe that’s why I’ve always been so into this gingham-covered room for so long now… It’s a little bit traditional, a little bit badass. I mean, it takes guts to cover an entire room with gingham, after all. And I love the […]

    I love dark & preppy – it’s kind of more like country club or a hunt room. I always remember a quote I read in a magazine that said ‘one thing overdone is kind of like not overdoing it’. I always tell myself that! :)

INTERIORS TO INSPIRE :: URBANE ECLECTIC IN SPAIN

mikkel larrinaga bilbao apartment living room1

I’ve noticed a shift in my interiors taste lately… which seems to happen every few years or so. It seems natural, of course, for this to happen. If we stay stagnant, we aren’t growing, and that goes for taste and life in general! But I’m actually surprised by some of the things I’m attracted to – […]

    I totally understand this shift in style preferences. I have been finding myself leading towards some of the same things, in a way I feel like it grounds me a bit a I get older

HOUSE TOUR :: A WHARF WEEKEND GETAWAY

3.nocrop.w1800.h1330

I can hardly believe it’s nearly Labor Day weekend. The true mark of the end of summer, I’m determined to make it count, so we’ve been hunting around a bit for last-minute cabins and weekend getaway spots that we can at least take a little day trip to. But if I were on the east […]

    Love it! kitchenette – (1) countertop surface? is it zinc? (2) compact stove – searching for one for guest house and reading mixed reviews for some brands- what company makes the stove? Thanks so much!

      Kathy – I have no idea to either question! If it doesn’t tell me in the article, we’re both outta luck. You can try and see if you can get more info from the original article (linked to in the post) or from the designer? Thanks!

ROOM TO BREATHE…

Roll03_Shot55-1157x800

Originally, I was going to share one room of this house with you all – a calm oasis of simplicity and architecture in this stunning living space… With a view I would very much like to be enjoying myself right now. All summer I had planned on making August my calm month. A month to enjoy […]

    These images are stunning especially that ocean view!
    This interior has very clean lines.
    I like the mix of styles and the artwork on the first image.
    I live in Italy and here we feel summer is coming to an end!
    As my kids have three and a half months off I’m kind of looking forward to the back to school routines!
    It’s been great, but…..

    I have seen this house featured on two blogs in the last couple of weeks and for good reason. It is stunning and completely redefines the boundaries of how a beach house can be designed. I especially love the mix of furniture with the black log in the first room. The step detail with the black floors in the dining area are a favorite too.

PRINT + PATTERN :: 5 WAYS TO STYLE BANANA LEAF PRINTS

banana-leaf-stripes-and-wovens

Remember last year when everywhere you looked you saw banana leaf prints? Everything from bikinis to espadrilles to iphone cases were covered with the iconic style. While the trend has died down a bit (and I do mean a bit) I for one will never tire of this tropical style in the home. And, just in case your on the […]

    Just like probably everyone else I have loved seeing banana leaf prints everywhere but I had no idea how to incorporate it into my own home with out getting new curtains or wallpapering a space. I love how you simply added the pattern by a pillow on your bed, it looks wonderful paired with your other patterns!

    I love both the bedroom mixes! I like how the bold print can be included in a room without overpowering it. I think I am in need of some banana print for this upcoming summer in the southern hemisphere! Thanks for the ideas. :)

    I love that powder room! I’d love to incorporate the banana leaf print into my camper! We go camping in the summer so often and most trailers have that yucky ‘ready-made’ wallpaper (with the light colours that are all swirly with 90′s throwback gold trim). Since we’re already glamping (our camper is 28 feet long and we run the AC 24/7) why not dress the camper appropriately!
