ROOM OF THE WEEK // 5.27

7

I have some really really big dreams for when we remodel our upstairs attic. Currently in a state of patched carpets and exposed beams and insulation, I can close my eyes and see how amazing it could be. Possibly… something like this? An all white attic living room with collective style, a creative work space, and cozy details… […]

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: WHITE + WORLDLY

hannah_blackmore_photography_adorehomemagazine_interior_photography_wedding_nest_1321

You know how I love me some fresh white walls, warm, natural materials, and a curated, global vibe… So you know that I loved this room from the second I saw it! It’s a great example of mixing woods and wovens in different textures, and also a great layout for an open floor plan or […]

    Hi, Cassandra, love your blog! It is always the first one I check everyday. You mentioned in your post that this particular room reminded you of your loft space. I was thinking that in your current dining room (which you are redecorating) that you could get inspiration from this space as well. You said in an earlier post that you weren’t sure if you will keep the wood table or switch it out for the marble-topped one.I instantly thought that you could paint your wood table’s legs white like the one in the photo to lighten up the space a bit.

      Nice idea Michelle! I hadn’t thought of that, and I’m not sure my boyfriend would go for it since it’s his table… but worth being an option! We’ve also discussed putting a marble top on the current table, but the problem is that he really loves the texture of the top, so that’s out. I’d almost rather take the top of his and put it on an industrial base that’s powdercoated white. Could be a cool mix!

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 […]

    That shower is amazing! And, ahem, moving in with the boyfriend? Big news! Apparently I’m a little behind on the blog-reading. 😉

    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!!

THE LIGHTEST OF LIGHTING…

1303907ab5768c9416b0acda5b4bd490

Among the list of items I’d love to add to the loft is one big pendant… but with this new space, I’m trying to veer away from my usual chandelier tendencies towards something a bit lighter and more organic. Something like these airy pieces… Am I crazy, or does that one above just look like […]

    I totally agree that the whole “exposed bulb” trend does look neat, especially in photos, but in reality the light is harsh and I know I would find myself then wanting to get another type of softer light for the room.

    Great post. Pic two does look a bit like a crab net, but I really like it, it really works in that space createing a vivid feature, love pic three too. Lighting is so vital in a room, it can make or break a scheme. Lamps dotted around a room can create different mood zones too, don’t you think? The location of light as well as type of shade is so important. Lighting has become much more a visual part of room designs lately with these oversized shades and low hanging pendants – LOVE IT :O)

    Ikea does have some great options, I recently replaced the fan in my bedroom with a pendant and I went with just a super simple white drum shade pendant. Can’t wait to see what you choose!

GET THE LOOK :: THE WHITE SHIRTDRESS

get-the-look---white-shirt-dress-for-spring

There aren’t many pieces in the closet more classic than the white button-up – that I think we can all agree on. But how are you all feeling about the white shirtdress? I remember seeing Leandra bravely rocking hers at fashion week last September and thinking… I love it. But, it takes some guts (and […]

    What timing with this post. This weekend I was watching an interview with an older actress who was wearing one of these with black nylons and all I could think was that it looked like she is missing her pants and when she stands up her undies will show!
    I think a belt would go a long way, however, I do like the one maneater is wearing, the bow is very cute and makes it look more like a dress.

      I’m totally with you – and black nylons would make it look even more strange in my opinion! They are tricky and need to be done really well. The problem with a belt, of course, is that it shortens an already short piece, but there are some nice, longer ones that look less like a large shirt and more like a purposeful dress, which is what I’d lean towards – especially if you’re on the taller side!
