What a week, my friends! I woke up thinking today was Friday… spoiler alert- it’s definitely not. Ha! After a few consecutive snow days (catch scenes from that in this post) and an incredibly busy work schedule the past few days, I found myself seeking inspiration and wanting to creatively recharge. Given I didn’t have a ton of time, I turned to Pinterest! My monthly “10 Pins” post is coming early and I couldn’t be happier. It was a much-needed break perusing the platform, gawking at beautiful images. I found a lot of images with gorgeous wood tones and neutral textures this time around (don’t worry there are also a few pops of color packed in). Another reason I love this series? For me, digging to find the accurate source of each image, often leads to the discovery of new designers and incredibly talented people I might not have found otherwise. Hopefully in addition to pretty imagery, the 10 Pins series might also help you guys discover some very talented individuals. I for one, love following along with captivating projects and discovering new designers. Click through to see what I found!
#1 // Warm Wood Kitchen
You guys know I’m a sucker for wood cabinetry. Remember our previous kitchen? This really reminds me of that space! If you click through using the source link, Marie Flanigan is sharing valuable information on the difference between quartzite and quartz!
#2 // Green Tudor Bathroom
I’m so happy my friend Patti decided to leave the existing green tile in her historic tudor home! They spent a lot of time cleaning it up and making repairs, and the end result is well worth it. I love the character and color it adds to this timeless bathroom.
There is just something about this modern breakfast nook that really does it for me. From the variety of sculptural shapes to the varied wood tones, this room feels warm, welcoming, and perfectly curated. I love the variety of organic materials used to create texture: a woven shade, the marble table, the wood chairs, and the linen curtains. Bravo!
#4 // Traditional Vignette
This vignette styled by my friend Alisa keeps popping up in my Pinterest feed… and for good reason! I love, love, love the deep green paint color and her use of vintage furniture (all found on Facebook marketplace). Spoiler alert… I’m using a toile peel-and-stick wallpaper in my mini powder room makeover. Stay tuned to see how it looks!
#5 // Contrasting Kitchen
A few things caught my attention in this image… the black french pocket doors leading into the kitchen (the gold & black contrast is perfect), the muddy green cabinetry color, and the way modern elements are mixed into this traditional space (the light fixture and island). It also feels very balanced to me.
#6 // Modern Cabin
This one was an unexpected surprise in my Pinterest feed. It’s a bit too modern for my taste, but there are lots of things I really like about it… the unique leather (or faux leather, not sure?) wrapped fireplace panels, the color palette (cognac, green, blue, gray, black), the board and batten wall paneling, and the overall streamlined lodge look.
#7 // Entryway Styling
I’m lucky to have been invited on a couple design trips that Bria also attended and had the privilege of hanging out with her in person. She is one talented and kind lady! I love the way she styled this traditional entryway. There are so many small details I appreciate in this image… the oversized baskets, the cashmere throw, that brass umbrella holder (not to mention the umbrellas inside it- LOOK at those bamboo handles), the console table, the lamp, the mirror, the striped wallpaper, the beads in the bowl,… I could go on for days. Oh, and did you notice the kitten? She would stick an adorable kitten in this perfect photo. I’m so impressed!
#8 // Perfect Powder Room
Team Stoffer does it again. I love this classic powder room. From the fun graphic floor tile to the gorgeous sink legs and grasscloth wallpaper, this simplistic room screams sophistication to me.
#9 // Modern Master Bedroom
My friends Bryan and Catherine are also design pals I met on a blogging trip. We immediately hit it off because of our Ohio roots. I’m continually impressed by the rooms and projects they reveal. My latest obsession that keeps showing up on Pinterest? This modern master bedroom. They shared the DIY if you’re interested in replicating the look. It’s absolutely stunning. Warm and cozy modern is my favorite kind of modern… they nailed the aesthetic while keeping it cozy!
#10 // Modern Meets Organic Kitchen
Last, but certainly not least- this neutral kitchen stopped me in my tracks. From the oversized living brass hardware to the organic elements sprinkled throughout… this is another example of modern design looking very inviting. I’m instantly wishing I had more open shelves in my kitchen to style. I love the way this curated collection looks and softens the space.
Well, that’s it for 10 Pins this month! Which ones were your favorite? I’d love to hear! Was it a nice break from reality? Are you feeling inspired? Did anyone else think today was Friday? Haha! I hope not. See you back here tomorrow (on ACTUAL Friday)?
