I hope you all had a lovely weekend! This was scheduled to post yesterday, but I had technical difficulties with my website (I’m back up and running now though). I’m kicking off the blog week with a new inspiration-filled 10 Pins post. These are always very fun for me to compile, and give me an opportunity to highlight other designers. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I do! This month I found many gorgeous images, well designed spaces, and vignettes on Pinterest. Click through to check them out!
Last week on IG stories, I professed my love for Roman clay and Venetian plaster. I am loving intentional, textural wall treatments lately. They feel so rich and interesting- like a nice, aged patina. This bathroom is absolutely stunning. From the black and white clawfoot tub to the mixed brass and copper finishes, this organic looking space has me smitten. It definitely gives me a European vacation vibe. I miss traveling!
#2 // Creative Workspace
I’ve been really excited about creative work spaces lately- offices, studios, work-from-home setups, etc. Emmett and I spent our entire Saturday painting at our new office building. Do you like how I casually snuck that in there? I’ll share more soon, but we have BIG things planned for this year. We just got the keys to the building we are renting and it needs some serious TLC. We don’t have the funds to give it a full fledged makeover at this point, but it used to be inhabited by a bunch of construction men (a concrete company)… so cleaning, painting, and thrifting budget-friendly furniture has been my top priority. This workspace vignette by the talented Leanne Ford is giving me hope that you can creative beauty and be productive in any space- no matter the condition. I think it’s more about what you fill a space with.
#3 // Built-in Behind Bed
There are lots of things to love about this bedroom: the mirrored closet doors, the built-in that serves as functional storage and a visual “headboard”, the stone pedestal, the herringbone floors, and the army green color palette mixed with apricot. Oh- and… do you spy that gorgeous dental moulding under the crown? The only thing I don’t love is the naked man “art”. Did you notice him? You know I’m all about a nude painting, but that dude is not my idea of cool art. Ha! He’s definitely a conversation piece though.
#4 // Traditional Entryway
I pretty much love everything about this space by Rachel Halvorson… the flooring, the large door (that shape!), the parsons bench that nests under the console table, the modern art, and the brass pendant light. Seeing this traditional entry certainly entices me to take an entire house tour. This place is beautiful!
#5 // Timeless Bath
I will ALWAYS love classic marble in a bathroom. I’m not even bored with the neutral color palette- it’s classic. The tile craftsmanship and design is perfection- that is how you execute using tile trim pieces (base, pencil tile, mosaic, subway, etc). It all feels very cohesive. The mirror frame and accessories are the little details I like to take note of. It’s very well done in this average sized bathroom! You don’t need a bunch of square footage to have a luxe, high-end bath.
#6 // Pocket Door Detail
Speaking of details, this pocket door is an image I can’t seem to get out of my head. From the recessed hardware to the perforated brass mesh inner panel, this sliding door that separates a living space from a kitchen is gorgeous! Even the adjacent door hinges are pretty. These small design details make a big difference in the overall look of a room.
#7 // Dark Moody Bathroom
Over the weekend, Mark D Sikes shared a photo of my living room on Instagram and I felt star struck. Haha! He is one of my favorite designers and I had a serious fan girl moment. This bathroom he designed is so nicely layered and curated. I love the tortoise tripod table, the lamp (pleated shades are back in, guys!), the sink, the glossy black paint color, the sconces installed directly against the mirrored wall, the basketweave marble tile, the art placement, and the exquisite styling. Also- take note of the shower curtain color. I love everything happening here!
#8 // Hall Vignette
I spy a little wall texture in this vignette too (Venetian plaster, maybe?). The branch arrangement in the bubble vase looks perfectly modern paired with the traditional console table. I’ve also been loving double handle lamps lately. I actually just bought a similar one with a tapered shade at an estate sale last week. I also have to note the wall and millwork color. This color is very close to our guest bedroom we’re currently renovating.
#9 // Modern Glam Kitchen
This modern kitchen actually has a lot going on, despite the minimal look. My favorite element in the space? Definitely the pendant lights. The glass shades almost give a fluted look. I love those paired with the antique brass section that has a nice patina going. I can’t ignore the graphic marble either… serious stone goals right there!
#10 // Curved Staircase
Lastly, I felt drawn to this curved staircase. Spiral and curved staircases are so romantic, in my opinion. They’re soft, feminine, and architecturally interesting. I always wonder where they lead. There are lots of fun things to admire in this vignette: the millwork, color palette, the art ledge (with the framed art), the modern shelving at the top of the stairs, and all of that beautiful stone.
That concludes this month’s 10 pins! What do you think? I’d love to hear your favorites in the comment section below. Happy Tuesday, friends!
