Hello, and happy New Year! I hope you all had a lovely holiday… we sure did! It was really nice to unplug and spend quality time with friends celebrating the season. I’m excited to be back to the blog this morning and am settling into my regular routine. I have lots of fun things planned for the year ahead and plenty to share, so let’s get to it. I figured I should kick off 2022 with everyone’s favorite post: 10 Pins! Diving into a new year with design inspiration just feels right, and I thought everyone would appreciate a fun scroll this morning. Monday post holiday vacation can be a drag, so maybe this will help as we’re all getting back to work. Click through to talk interiors with me, scroll through some gorgeous home imagery, and to take a little time for yourself today as we kick off another year…

#1 // Casual Dining Nook

The millwork is what stopped me mid scroll on this gorgeous dining nook. It’s casual, cozy, includes plenty of texture and the light fixtures are very beautifully done.

#2 // Home Office

Obviously I have my home office on the brain… I’m just waiting on Emmett to finish my antique desk, and then I’ll be set to photograph and share it with you! This space felt very inspiring in terms of office styling for me- particularly mixing old with new.

#3 // Soaking Tub Vignette

We have some long winter months ahead and there is nothing I love more than a hot soak in the bath to remedy the cold. This gorgeous, simple vignette and marble soaking tub surrounded by windows feels transportive.

#4 // High Contrast Staircase

Another space I’ve had on my mind lately? Our entryway! Guess what was delivered over break? That’s right… my French cabochon entryway tile. Emmett and I have been plotting our staircase DIY over the holiday and we are looking forward to that renovation, on the heels of my office. This stair runner is exactly what I had in mind for our space, so it was an natural save.

#5 // Dark Modern Kitchen

The kitchens coming out of DeVol are nothing short of stunning. This brownish green cabinet color really captivated me- especially with the dark stone countertops. You know I have a soft spot for that combination. It’s simplistic, yet timeless. The wood tones make it feel very cozy and inviting, especially with all that natural light.

#6 // Neutral Bathroom

This bathroom looks very classic to me. This is the use of neutrals I adore… soft, creamy, elegant, and all done with timeless materials. If you’re trying to squeeze a double vanity into a small space- this is an interesting use of the oversized mirror placement (centered)! I actually really like it.

#7 // Patterned Drapery in Dining Room

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- I’m here for pattern in 2022. I want to play with more pattern in my home and I’m looking forward to fabric shopping in the weeks ahead! Such beautiful drapery- especially against the floor-to-ceiling tile in this dining room.

#8 // Open Kitchen

This open concept kitchen is beautifully designed. The finishes are lovely, the custom cabinetry is top notch, and the styling is spot on. This is where I’d like to spend my winter months cooking soup and comfort foods. Who is with me? April Tomlin is incredibly talented and was a new designer find in this edition of 10 Pins! Go give her a follow and check out the lovely spaces in her portfolio- I promise they’re worth a scroll.

#9 // French Doors

Do you spy the tiny hand door lever? Between that detail, the french doors, the topiaries, and the lovely footed (perfectly aged) terra cotta planters, this vignette was an easy save. I also loved the mixing of different types of stone.

#10 // Layered Bedroom

I found this pretty bedroom while daydreaming of 2022 travels- even though that seems like a world away right now. This hotel is located in Barcelona, and again- it was the patterned drapery and paint color that made me pause. I really love the way the wall paneling was done. Gorgeous millwork!

That concludes my first post of the new year! I hope you enjoyed it. Here’s to more design inspiration, fun interior chats, and unique things to share with each other in the year ahead. Let’s do this! Have a great week, my friends.

  1. Good morning, good morning, good morning! What a perfect way to kick off the new year! So many new-to-me designers…lucky I woke up extra early today! I went straight to April Tomlin’s portfolio because of the intro image. That kitchen does not disappoint! I adore the materials, the colors, the mix of cabinetry, and all those windows! Such a dreamy space! As is that little dining nook. The lattice moulding at the top really caught my eye; such an interesting detail. The seascape and the table are pretty stunning too. I’ve been attracted to all kinds of cozy nooks lately-must be the freezing temps. I’ve also been intrigued by home libraries recently, and I’m into the blue/gray with the dark woods combined with grasscloth and plaid shades of #2. Even I might manage to be productive in such a space! Although I’m not much of a bath person, I could be lured by the stellar view from that amazing marble tub. I especially like the contrast of the rough slate floors. Speaking of floors, YAY for entry tile delivery!!! I can certainly see why that staircase caught your eye. What is better than a deVol kitchen? That green color with the dark counters? Gah. That neutral bathroom reminded me of your basement bath. I hadn’t noticed the double sink/mirror sitch, but I think it works too. From a practical standpoint, the additional accordion mirror probably is key (and cute!). A hearty “Heck yes!” to both images containing patterned drapes! I adore the airy, casual quality of the print in the Heidi Caillier room and how it plays with the formal velvet chairs. The kind of block print on the Barcelona bedroom curtains is great too. While I do like the grandmillenial chintz look that abounds these days, these less stuffy patterns work better for my style. Speaking of style, what an adorable cottage entrance! The symmetry and mix of materials is perfection. And, I don’t know if I’ll be traveling this year, but I would happily rest my head in that bedroom. The green wall paneling is aces! I’m guessing the view from that tiny balcony isn’t bad either! For now, I’ll content myself with perusing the portfolios of all these new designers! Thanks for getting my new year off to a beautiful start! 💜

    1. Hello, hello and Happy New Year! There are so many talented people packed into this one. I loved discovering some new design portfolios this time around. April Tomlin is amazing- I really enjoyed scrolling through the archives. I always love a cozy nook or seating area! I also noted the use of the lattice- really interested treatment… and to bring an outdoor material or pattern indoors. Plaid always feels timeless to me. I’ve also been feeling the patterned window treatments that we’ve been seeing a lot of! I sure hope this year holds some fun trips and travel for us. I know we’ll probably end up in Phoenix at some point, as I promised Laurie Anne I’d help her style her new house. Ha! I hope you’re having a great Tuesday and your year is off to a fantastic start! xo

  2. Happy New Year!! Waking up to a 10 pins puts the cherry on top of what feels like a productive start to the first week of the year. The opening image gave me long pause-I love the fixtures, the color of the walls, and the high contrast countertops. Of high interest this year for me will be home office areas, kitchens, and breakfast nooks-this one did not disappoint! The lattice millwork is such a unique addition, but for me it’s the tone and depth of texture the table adds. The home office was another long pause-the use of pattern in this room, while subtle, is perfect. I’m digging the plaid and grass cloth mixture and of course, who can resist the chair with the Greek key pillow? The desk is jaw dropping gorgeous against the blue. I love the soaking tub vignette, specifically for the creamy graphic marble and the high contrast floor; who wouldn’t want a soak? The rug in the stairway is exactly what I pictured you wanting for your own staircase (yay for the entry tile arriving!!!), and I adore the classic feel this style brings. The neutral bathroom stopped me in my tracks and I’m paying close attention to the paint choice here. The tone is similar to what I selected for our bathroom vanity, however I’ve yet to narrow down the right choice for the walls. The unique positioning of the mirror is the perfect solution for a bathroom with a smaller footprint-I dig the creativity and functionality. The French door vignette is captivating me-especially the footed Terra cotta pots and simple topiaries-filling mine this spring will feel like such an accomplishment and finishing touch to our front yard, and I hope I can accomplish as classy a look as this. Both images of the patterned curtains are stunning in their own right. I’m particularly drawn to the bedroom image-these seem like they bring so much warmth (both stylistically and temperature wise), and I’d love to crawl in that bed and have a restful sleep. The paneling is impeccable, and while not my preferred shade, I love the green choice! Thank you for a lovely kickoff and much appreciated design inspiration to start the year. I hope all of you have a wonderfully productive first week-let’s make 2022 one to remember!

    1. Happy New Year, Lauren! I love that you enjoyed kicking your week off with 10 pins yesterday morning- I’m flattered. It’s only the second workday of the year and it has felt pretty productive so far, ha! Let’s hope the trend sticks. I’ve definitely had staircases and our entry on my brain and we’re planning to dive into that renovation just as soon as I photograph my office. I loved that runner and that is actually why I pinned that image, for the purposes of our own staircase update. It’s beautiful! It sounds like things are coming right along in your bathroom, that’s exciting! You’ll find the right wall color. I hope your week and year is off to a wonderful start! Here’s to a great year ahead! xo

  3. Happy New Year Sarah!
    Glad to hear you had a wonderful holiday and leaping into the New year full of energy and inspiration. We had a fantastic holiday as well, I love the promise and excitement a new year brings. All of the pins you have shown are beautiful the Chocolate brown Devol kitchen is a standout for me, the staircase is a stunning classic and I especially love the bookcase on the landing. Can’t wait too see the reveal on your entryway project, how exciting you have finally received your tiles 🥳 not to mention your office reveal coming soon. Yay! Can’t wait ☺️
    Have a fabulous Monday friend! Cheers for an amazing 2022 and a productive year ahead 🥂

    1. Happy New Year, Colleen! We had a relaxing, low key holiday and I loved every minute of it. I’m thrilled to hear you had a lovely holiday as well! I was definitely excited to get back to the shop and blog yesterday though. It’s shaping up to a busy and exciting January, in terms of work. When house hunting for our current home, we put an offer on a place that had a bookcase on the landing of the stairs and beautiful built-ins at the top with a window bench, and it was my favorite part of that house. Of course, we ended up here instead of there, but it was a charming place. I loved that detail! My desk is sanded, so the office reveal is *almost* ready for me to photograph, and I’m thrilled that our tile finally arrived! I’m ready to rip out the entryway, but we decided to wait until I photograph my office, so that I don’t have to capture a big mess outside the pocket doors. Haha! Here’s to a great year ahead- I hope your week is off to a fantastic start! xo

  4. Happy first Monday of the New Year! Your 10 pins are really good! Seeing the first kitchen from April Tomlin gave me a deep dive into her portfolio…it is so good. Then to see the second photo of a kitchen she designed…wow! The home office is giving me all the vibes I want to incorporate for my husband. Love the window seats; mix of old and new. It is inviting and timeless. Gah, I want to take a soak in Andrew Brown’s soaking tub. This is the first photo of an enclosed tub I like. My favorites have been the stand alone tubs. Congrats on getting your tile! Cannot wait to see the idea board of your entry. I too love terra cotta pots. The best thing I ever bought for my pots are terra cotta feet. Lol, don’t know why that statement sounded funny!
    I have noticed I am drawn to homes with separate rooms lately (kitchen separate from living, so on). I still like open concept it just doesn’t appeal to me as much anymore. If you could build your dream home, would you have an open concept or each room separate? I am curious.
    You did a great design inspiration for the new year and I enjoyed it! Hope your Monday is going well.

    1. Hi Danna! I hope your week is off to a wonderful start. April Tomlin is really talented! I loved scrolling her portfolio. I am thrilled we were able to finally get our tile. Emmett has been researching stair carpentry and we’re looking forward to getting started in the entryway! I didn’t realize you could buy feet for terra cotta pots?! I must have been living under a rock. Ha! For our own home, I’ve always preferred cozy sectioned spaces over open concept. All of the homes we’ve lived in have had that same type of floor plan, and the homes Emmett & I grew up in also fit that description… maybe we like that because it just feels inviting and familiar? I’m not sure! Regardless, our dream home would have separate rooms. Happy New Year!! I hope you’re having a great day. xo

      1. Sarah, I wanted to let you know that I have found the terra cotta feet at Lowes. They come in a pack of 3. They are not the ornate foot like in the picture but raise the planter up off the ground. We packed ours or I would send you a picture. Hope your tuesday is productive.

          1. I am definitely buying some of those! I had no idea. Haha! Thanks Danna! Happy Tuesday

  5. Happy New Year Sarah! I am working my way through your amazing pin choices- thank you for these wonderful new portfolios to browse through. I’m so glad you had some time off over the holidays and am so happy to read your blog ‘as usual’ on Monday. Onward into 2022 we go…..

    1. Happy New Year, Kari! It was such a nice and relaxing holiday. I hope you had a wonderful season as well, and your year is off to a good start! Onward we go. I’m excited for upcoming winter posts. Thanks for being here!
