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!

#1 // Venetian Plaster Bathroom

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!

  1. So I love several of these inspiration images. The brown plaster wall is very cozy and just beautiful. I’m going to take the idea of the mirrored closet doors for my daughter’s room to make it feel more spacious, and I really want that checkered tile floor for my entryway. I’ve been searching for classic tile options and patterns, but I just have to convince my husband of it. I like that this one isn’t as drastic as true black and white so maybe I can get my husband on board! Thank you for the roundup!

    1. Isn’t that brown plaster so stunning?! I just love the hue and texture. I’ve been loving mirrored and upholstered doors lately. I think the floor tile is a classic option- and I actually prefer the more tonal version, as opposed to high contrast. Crossing my fingers for you :) Have a great day, Brittany!

  2. Hold the phone. Office building?! Man, you are good at keeping secrets! Can’t wait to hear about everything. That Paris apartment is all pretty amazing (sans the classy naked photo🤣). That pocket door detail is stunning! Pocket doors are such genius space-savers; I don’t know why they’re not employed more often. The MDS bath is perfect…is that Johnny Cash watching me brush my teeth, though? That Gambrel vignette color looks very different from your guest room on my monitor! But I have really been loving two similar, but different tones on wall and trim lately. Like maybe just different enough to cause tension? The pendants and dramatic marble also caught my eye, but I love the windows behind the counter in Jennifer Welch kitchen! And what do you call those flat pulls on the cabinets? I like the way they look, but I wonder if they’d be comfortable to use? That last image, though!! The smokey purple and the blue?! Speaking of texture, that purplish wall almost looks like velvet. And those stone floors, sigh. Curved staircases are special! Thanks for such a varied round-up to get my eyes going this morning! Happy Tuesday, Sarah!!

    1. Haha! I wondered who would catch Johnny Cash without me mentioning him. I love those type of vintage B&W photographs. Pocket doors really are the best invention! I feel like the our guest bedroom color is constantly changing. In the morning its darker and moody, then in the afternoon hours it gets bright. Who knows! I like that it’s one of those chameleon paint colors. Our space will also be tone on tone (one shade different). The counter windows in the Welch kitchen are indeed very cool! I call that type of cabinetry hardware- “tab” or “edge” pulls. I know, I know- that last image is everything. There are so many beautiful things to love about it. Yeahhh, the office building was a recent development (Emmett & I are really excited about it). Here’s to hoping things work out as planned someday and it gives us a place to share beautiful design. :) Have a great day, Peggi! xo

  3. Say what? After I read that you and Emmett were painting a building….well I had a hard time concentrating on the rest of this post! Congratulations! This is awesome! Please don’t keep us waiting too long.
    I love your Pinterest posts. I have found myself there when I need some visual eye candy or decor inspiration.
    Rachel Halvorson’s entrance is a fave. I love entry ways and especially when they are separate from the main home.
    Have a great day!

    1. Don’t worry- I won’t, Danna… and thank you! I’m terrible at keeping secrets anyway. Haha! Lately, Pinterest has been such a happy spot in my day. I feel like there is so much negativity on other social media platforms, I find comfort in the beauty of Pinterest. I also love Rachel Halvorson’s entrance- there is so much to appreciate in that space. How is your summer going? Is your college freshman all set to move? Hope you and the fam are doing well :) xo

  4. I keep seeing pleated lampshades out there and I just cannot wrap my head around the fact that they are back! Noooooooo

    1. Haha! I love them. I think they’re so much more interesting than regular drum shades… give me a taper, pleat, contrast edge, SOMETHING. You’re going to love tomorrow’s blog post. Lol!

  5. I love these posts. I’m not really one to study photos in detail so I love reading what you pay attention to and trying to train my own eye accordingly! Thanks!

    1. I’m so glad to hear that, Hannah! These are among my favorite posts to compile. I could talk about design all day long :)

  6. The pocket door made me think of my grandparents’ house. They had a pocket door with what I think may have been cane detail, although I’m not sure if I am remembering that correctly. They sold the house in 2003 and I so wish that wasn’t pre-Zillow!!

    1. Really?! A cane pocked door sounds like my dream come true. I bet it was beautiful, Brittany!

  7. Okay, talk about burying the lead!!! Office building?!?!! Cannot wait to hear what that’s all about, Sarah, but it sounds like congratulations are in order! Whoo-hoo! I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, you find *the best* pins! That moody bathroom and the modern kitchen – gah! So stunning. I also love that pocket door, but I’m with KarenJ- just not a fan of pleated lampshades and don’t want to believe they’re back!! Such a pain to clean/dust! LOL! Anyway, can’t wait to see tomorrow’s post and SO glad you’re taking Friday’s “off”, Sarah. We’ll use have to wish you Happy Pizza Friday on Thursdays, now. :)

    1. Hah! Yes, yes! Can’t wait to share more. We’re working on something fun that will launch this fall! More soon :) Pinterest has really been my happy place lately. It’s always so creative, inspiring, and positive. I know that pleated shades are a “love it or hate it” kind of item, so no hard feelings from me! I’ve been cleaning mine with my air duster… the thing that cleans my keyboard. Haha! I’m not sure what the technical name is, but it seemed to be way easier than using my actual duster. Having Fridays this summer is going to be amazing! I’m already two weeks in and am getting so much more accomplished. As always, thank you so much for your support and kind words Anne! I hope you’re having a lovely week so far. xo

  8. Stop it right now with these pins!!! That opening bedroom grabbed me: I’m furiously searching pins of bedrooms with windows flanking the bed…that’s our setup and I need serious inspo. I should have known you’d have it in spades. I love the look of the built-ins behind that bed (sans weird naked guy), but living in California all I can think is “hello earthquake”…that’s just asking for a disaster🤣😂 The entryway is incredible; I love the twist on classic style tile, and the shape of that door…but did anyone notice the placement of the doorknob? Struck me as unique and different but I would likely reach for the side every time, haha. The timeless bathroom is my favorite! I love the marble, the unique framed mirror, the creamy colored cabinets, and the way the black accents seem to pop…that mirror gave me quite the diy idea for the ones I plan on using in the bathroom. I’m in love with them, but they seem to be trending a little too much for my taste, so making them my own is in order. That bathroom may single handedly be responsible for me submitting to the dark side and installing black in the bathroom. 😳 Pocket doors are the work of God! Seriously the most functional and sometimes beautiful elements of a home, and I say yes please. The detail on that one is incredible! I noticed Mr. Cash as well; perfect for that bathroom. Everything about that kitchen is unstoppable; I love the color tones against that graphic marble and the detail on the barstools. That staircase though!!! I wish ours wasn’t so boring when I see staircases like this one…definitely a missed opportunity in this house! And let’s chat for a minute about this big secret: Congratulations!! I have no idea where this is going but I like it! That’s awesome for you both Sarah, and I can’t wait to find out the big news! Have a great day; sorry I missed this one yesterday. PTA training all week has me shoving as much as I can into the morning and afternoon. 🤪

    1. Haha!! Isn’t that one beautiful?! Ehhh, I didn’t even think about the earthquake factor… having shelves of books behind the bed. That doesn’t seem like a good idea after all. I experienced my first big quake here in Salt Lake a couple months ago and I’ll never forget that feeling. SO weird and terrifying. I don’t know how you Californians ever get used to it. Yes to the doorknob placement! That’s more common on European entry doors. I love the look! Can’t wait to see your bathroom DIY idea come to life :) Isn’t the masculine bathroom so amazing? There is your strong case for black! Maybe don’t show that to Jeff or he might ask for new wall paint. Haha! Our staircase is pretty boring too. Maybe someday we can jazz it up, but our house doesn’t lend itself to curves. Womp womp! As always, thanks so much for your support Lauren. Can’t wait to share more and I hope you have another day of successful PTA training! xo
