Happy Tuesday! It’s time for a new edition of 10 Pins! Already… I know. Time is flying! I spent more time than usual perusing Pinterest this past month, since I had downtime on our way to and from California. The amount of inspiration I can scroll through at the airport is infinite. That’s my favorite way to pass the time when traveling- Pinterest, design magazines, and books. It felt like a particularly inspiring month in terms of interiors & design. I’ve been saving lots of darker vignettes that are fit for fall, but if you want to see my top picks of the month- click on through!
Emmett & I had a fun discussion about oak the other day. Since he works at a custom cabinetry shop, he said he has noticed more people requesting oak… especially in its natural color with a clear, matte protective finish. I’m very into the warm look and seriously considered it for my office built-ins, but since we already have lots of warm wood tones thanks to our herringbone flooring, I opted for paint grade instead. Regardless- I love the look!
#2 // Dark Dining Space
This dark dining space is ticking all of the boxes for me- it’s warm, layered, has plenty of depth thanks to that beautiful navy paint color, and the simplistic styling is really well done. It’s a great modern rustic space that feels very cozy, and timely for fall.
#3 // Green Front Door
Oh, how I love a double front door! This charming door, complete with a brass mail slot and stunning architrave, is a fantastic color of green. I love the way the landscaping softens and frames the vignette. This palette also has me itching for fall and cooler temperatures. I really like the exterior brick style as well.
#4 // Entryway
This entryway felt very designerly to me, yet not overly complex or stuffy. I’m digging the subtle stripes, organic shaped hair on hide rug, the brass details sprinkled throughout, the front door, and the stunning window treatments. What a lovely and thoughtful entry that is well styled and layered!
#5 // Green Lacquered Walls
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- I’d love to lacquer a wall or two in our house… I just need to find the right space and design for it. I’m thinking when it comes time to renovate our basement media room and kitchenette, that would be an optimal spot for a high gloss moment! I love everything about this green seating area.
#6 // Warm Neutral Kitchen
There are so many stunning materials to discover in this kitchen! From the terra-cotta tiled floor to the marble countertops and bead board ceiling, this quaint kitchen stopped me mid scroll. Since I’m on the hunt for a vintage long slender table for my own kitchen, this one has me searching for wood options as well. It’s beautiful! I love the intricate details.
#7 // Color Filled Farmhouse
Of course the perfectly perched dog is what caught my attention in this image (what a cutie!), but there is lots to admire from a design point-of-view in this space. I’m really enjoying the bold floor tile, the red ticking stripe bench seat cushion, the paint color, and check out those doorknobs! This is basically what my cabin design dreams are made of.
#8 // Modern Bath
This balanced and symmetrical bath has a very European modern feel to it. I’m very into the oversized square handmade tile that is a creamy white hue, the brass plumbing fixtures, and of course- the vintage rug & artwork… two of my favorite things.
#9 // Bold Bar
While this isn’t a residential setting, this is certainly a bar I’d want to visit. I’ll have an old fashioned, please! The color palette and combination of materials is really classic. That mirror is absolutely insane, and there are so many details to remember and save: the ceiling treatment, the brass brackets beneath the marble bar top, the ink colored painted color, etc.
#10 // Bedside Collection
Sometimes we forget to analyze the images that are medium shots and closeups on Pinterest… this is one I saved because the styling is impeccable and worth remembering. It mixes modern and traditional elements in the best way. From the double lamps to that amazing urn, and mod occasional table tucked beneath the antique console- it reminded me that good styling is all about layering the unexpected. That’s great design!
I hope you enjoyed this month’s 10 Pins post! I’d love to hear which image was your favorite or which one felt most inspiring? I have quite a bit of travel planned in the coming month (a fun road trip and work travel), so I’ll have plenty of down time to browse and scroll, so expect another good roundup next month. Have a fantastic day!
