I couldn’t let October slip away without sneaking in a 10 Pins post. After all, this is one of my all-time favorite blog series. I absolutely love compiling and sharing inspiration with you from Pinterest each month. Click through to see what has been inspiring me lately! I will say… I think you’re going to find the color palettes within this post pretty fun. I found lots of beautiful spaces that are pushing the design limits- most of which include full home tours, so be sure to click through to the source to take the tour and discover new designers. Enjoy!

#1 // Modern English Kitchen

This modern English cottage may skew a bit minimalistic for me, but the material choices and juxtaposition of rustic meets modern is very aesthetically pleasing. I’m also really enjoying the color palette- would you have thought to pair those two cabinetry colors? In my mind it would’ve been one or the other, but somehow it works! Something about new meets old is always a win in my book.

#2 // Eclectic Bedroom

Ok, ok… I’m loving this bedroom! The funky wallpaper, the color, the traditional furniture, the modern etageres crammed with books, and even the faux fireplace. I wish I could see more of the canopy and the woven light fixture peeking out from behind it!

#3 // Color Blocked Powder Room

This minimal powder room stopped me mid scroll. Why? A combination of things… I always stop for herringbone floors, but I also loved the oxblood color blocking with the powdery blue upper paint. The portrait and light fixture placement was also interesting to me. The space seems SO tall.

#4 // Graphic Gallery Wall

I’m pretty sure this is a kids space, but I’m certain my adult self would move into this room if I could. THIS is how you do a graphic, high contrast gallery wall! I absolutely love the art collection, the placement, and the gilded frames. I’m also very into the blue chest beneath it, the millwork, the wall color, and even the simplistic woven area rug. If children were ever apart of our future, I would need a stuffed animal horse like that. So cute!

#5 // Navy Kitchen

This timeless navy kitchen has me smitten. You know I love a dark, bold cabinetry color. I also think the playful green bar stools work really well. The lighting, the graphic marble backsplash, and even the stone flooring is all working very well together. It’s a lovely, functional space!

#6 // Curated Workspace

There is so much to break down in this curated workspace vignette! I love the wall treatment- surprisingly even the color, the furniture, the art, the mirror, the styling, and the lighting. I’m trying to decide if the “beams” on the ceiling are real, or if they’ve been painted for an optical illusion? Regardless, it’s kind of a cool idea! Painted color blocked “beams” on the ceiling… would you do it?

#7 // Living Room Vignette

Things I really liked about this traditional space? The way multiple wood tones were paired together- that kind of intimidates me, but it looks really nice here. The millwork is incredible. The styling objects and curiosities that fill this space are pretty amazing.. did anyone spy the stone urn? I also appreciate the way the modern art strongly contrasts a very classic space. It’s a nice unexpected surprise.

#8 // Gallery Hallway

Ughhhh, S.R. Gambrel does it again. This hallway gallery wall is bonkers. Red frames?! The sheer amount of black and white photographs? The perfect placement from floor to ceiling? Gallery lights? Board and batten? It’s kind of mesmerizing. I know it’s not for everyone, but I think this is insanely cool. It clearly doesn’t need a runner because that would be overkill. It’s exactly enough.

#9 // English Kitchen

Another English kitchen, but this one is vastly different than the one I shared at the beginning of the post. From modern to super cozy and traditional… this is kind of what my European cottage dreams are made of. Obviously I love the range, the copper cookware, furniture pieces providing functional workspace instead of cabinetry, the stone, the millwork, the warm colors, the countertop lamp… it is all very charming.

#10 // Layered Office

Lastly, a beautiful office. What’s not to love about this one? I’m enjoying the paint color that reminds me of our guest room, we’re currently working on. I also am eyeing that area rug, the desk, the unique waste basket, the steel windows, the finish carpentry, and the cute table lamp.

That concludes this month’s 10 pins post! What did you think? I hope you liked it. This felt like a really good one. Pinterest has been pretty great lately. I hope you all have a lovely week ahead!

  1. Phew! Glad I got up extra early; there’s SO much here to explore! My first thought about the Suzanne Kasler image was that Emmett could make those doors for your office built-ins; the “x” speaks to your living room. (complimentary design advice 🤣) I agree that #1 is a little minimal, but I adore the two colored cabinets! I’m not sure I would love it in a smaller space? I definitely endorse the furniture style island and its screened doors. I love Beata Heuman! That is actually a canopied couch and silk-covered walls. (If you scroll to the bottom of the article, image #4 gives a better view of the canopy and the scallopy woven light fixture!) Yes to that minimal powder room palette! But what is up with the scale? The toilet seems 10″ tall. I’m pretty sure that graphic gallery wall is brought to you by the letter “B.” Boat, banana, brain, botanicals! You can take the teacher outta the classroom, but you can’t take the classroom outta the teacher.😉 Not sure about that peachy office space…actually, I like everything but the wall situation. It looks like trompe l’oeil, but the mirror reflection does show actual beams. The stone urn and the mixed wood tones were the first things I noted in #7. The millwork is also crazy-awesome; that detail around the door?! That entire Steven Gambrel house is bananas! Black and white and red all over…in the best possible way. I could certainly see myself cooking up a storm in that English kitchen! I really am taking notes on unfitted kitchens. That huge window and the stunning range would be a dream. Speaking of windows, that green office takes the prize! I’m not sure it would help me focus though. The built-ins are beautiful; I’m noticing the screen/grille trend more on doors, and I like it! I also notice that the desks in these two offices are similar; I’m really trying to imagine your future office. I know, I know… dining room first!
    Well, thank you for an inspiring Monday! Here’s to a lovely (birthday!) week!💜

    1. Thank you, Peggi! It’s going to be a good, productive week :) I’m so glad you enjoyed this one! I also saved the built-ins with the “x” detail and showed Emmett for office inspiration. We’re definitely on the same page! I love that look and it would go so well with our existing built-ins. Beata Heuman is very inspiring. I’m going to have to check out the sofa with the canopy- I had no idea it was a sofa! I just assumed bed… so crazy and cool! The scale in the powder bath seems crazy- is it an optical illusion because the ceiling height is so insanely tall? It seems to go on forever. I NEVER would have noticed the “B” gallery wall. Haha! You certainly do have a teacher brain. Now that you pointed it out, it seems so obvious- like I should’ve picked up on that. Lol! Steven Gambrel can do no wrong. That entire house is very well done. Speaking of windows and doors- great point on the mesh / screen grille look… that is definitely very trendy right now. I think it adds a nice texture. I’m also seeing it done with woven materials like linen or cane. Despite being in dining room design mode, I’m always thinking about my future home office- so I’ll chat with you about that any day. Speaking of offices, this week I’ll be sharing the start of a fun kitchenette project at the office we’re renting. Can’t wait! Have a happy Monday, my friend! xo

  2. I always love these posts- so much goodness! I actually pinned #4 early this week 😁. A canopy on a sofa! That’s something I’ve never seen before- so dreamy. That powder room is so simple yet memorizing. There’s not much there yet I couldn’t stop looking. Love the unexpected green barstools in the navy kitchen – gave me inspiration for my soon to be navy cabinets. I love all of them EXCEPT the red frame hallway- makes me dizzy. I would much prefer a “quiet” frame with pretty runner, but to each there own right. Happy Monday!

    1. Me too, Melissa! I’m so glad you enjoy them. Ok-clearly I missed that it was a SOFA?! That is pretty cool, and I’ve never seen that before either. I love that you’re going dark and are planning to paint your cabinets navy… that will be stunning. The red gallery wall hallway isn’t for everyone- I totally get it :) Have a wonderful week! xo

  3. Anne (Julia) says:

    Seems like the thread here is a pop of red. Need to look around my rooms!

    1. I’ve definitely noticed a trend in warmer, bold paint colors… red, plum, burnt orange, etc. Have a great week!!

  4. I love the office! I have been working from a card table in my guest room since March. I’m sure I’ll be home well into 2021 and I’m torn between wanting to figure out how to make it a cuter office space and just leaving it be, since I probably won’t really work from home when this is all over…although who knows how long that could take! Plus I have to work around the bedroom set – it’s a family heirloom that I absolutely love, and it has to stay in that room. Decisions, decisions…

    1. Isn’t that gorgeous? I loved that one, too. Brittany- you’ve gotta get yourself a proper desk, girlfriend!! Maybe at least a comfortable desk chair? It’s been a tricky year to navigate and our homes are working extra hard for us. The struggle!

  5. Peggi and I are on the same wavelength this morning!! Those “x” cabinet doors would be incredible for your office built-ins, because let’s be real…we KNOW there’s going to built-ins.🤣😂😍😍 The modern English kitchen has a ton of depth and dimension that is so visually pleasing-it works well as the show stopper for such a minimal space. I adore the industrial features as a wonderful contrast element…overall for my taste it’s a bit too minimal but very well done for that vibe!! I’m really digging both colors together in the room-it’s unexpected and gorgeous and I think it works well because they are in the same tone family.
    The eclectic living room has so much visual interest and texture. I love the bookcase displays, the millwork detail on the fireplace, that stunning canopy over the sofa…it’s all pretty amazing, especially all the different fabric textures! I surprisingly love the color of the wallpaper, but for me the pattern is just a bit too busy. The peek of the light fixture makes me think this room is just so warm and cozy, and the shape of the fixture nods to your previous home’s patio table!
    Totally in love with the color blocked powder room!!!😍😍 The colors remind me of Burberry and that floor pattern is a complete show stopper! I love that the color blocking elongates the perceived ceiling height, but for me, the artwork-while beautiful for the space- is a touch off in scale, and I probably would opt for a picture light or brass sconce as opposed to the pendant…but I’m still drooling! The graphic gallery wall is everything!! From the color on the walls to the dentil crown molding, to the high contrast artwork😍😍😍swoon!! Plus I adore the shade of blue on that chest and the horse is the perfect touch! I agree this must be a kids space, and it’s absolutely perfect!
    I think the navy kitchen is my favorite of all the spaces. I love the marble veining of the backsplash, and especially the walnut stools against that perfect navy😍And the fabric??!!!😱😱😱THAT is the exact shade of green I’m looking for in a linen duvet cover for our bedroom. It is spot on perfect!! The pendants are stunning against this backdrop, and I can’t get over the florals and the bowl of limes playing off the green barstools…impeccable!
    The curated office space gives a nod to shabby chic vibes with the painted beam art on the ceiling-it mimics the organic edge of the actual beam-done differently it would have just looked like stripes-which I’d argue would have been equally stunning. While not my preference I think it works well in the space. Everything from the beam down is awesome-I love the furniture, the artwork, the textures…
    For me, there are features of the next few spaces that are unexpected- the layered wood tones from the living room vignette really make the subtle details of the millwork and styling pieces standout. I especially love the detail on the table lamps! The red frames of the gallery wall are so different than what you’d typically see-and I’m digging it! The copper and brass of the English kitchen against all the high contrast elements is stunning. Overall, something about these spaces makes me feel anxious- I can’t put my finger on it, but something about them all just isn’t playing well with my brain. But that layered office is a dream!! The color, millwork, table lamp, furniture-the black windows…I think it’s perfect in every way and absolutely a space that would be a pleasure to work in. This probably personifies what I picture your office will look like-this space screams Sarah!! Another awesome ten pins roundup, a beautiful fall Monday morning, and it’s our birthday week!! Woot woot!!

    1. Right?! I think so, too! OF COURSE there are going to be built-ins. Haha! That’s basically my #1 priority in the office. Lol! You all know me well. The wallpaper in the living space definitely has a lot going on… I think the color is stunning though. Omg, you’re right- the powder room definitely has a Burberry vibe. I never would’ve put that together, but you said it- and now that’s all I can see. Ha! I’m not surprised you like the navy kitchen- that feels very you and is super stunning. I took a design class on millwork, and spaces that make you feel anxious uneasy are definitely a thing (most are out of balance or loud). It’s something we designers try to avoid, because a well designed room should feel stable, inviting, secure, etc. There are tricks to create spaces like that and things to avoid. Now you have me wondering what elements are giving you the anxious feeling. I find it all so fascinating! That last office is my favorite- it includes so many elements I love. Again, you know me well :) Happy birthday week to us!! Are you doing anything fun?! xo

      1. Hahah…funny you should ask!! We are holding a “peaceful protest” boycotting Gavin Newsom’s mandates for holiday gatherings on Halloween…otherwise known as a neighborhood block party😂🤣😂. All of us moms in the neighborhood (all of our kids, 18 total, have been play pals since long before Covid) planned it for the kids as an alternative to trick or treating. So we’ve got a ginormous Halloween bounce house, some fun games, bags of candy, pizza, and dessert for these kiddos to have some Halloween fun. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my 37th Halloween birthday than seeing these sweet babes have some joy! It should be fun! How are you celebrating?

        1. No way!! Lol!! That sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate 37! I know without my quarantine pod, and being able to see friends this year- I would be in a totally different headspace. I’m glad you and your kids are going to have a great time celebrating with friends safely. Since trick or treating is a no go, I’m glad your kiddos will still be able to enjoy the holiday (and you get birthday fun). Cheers to Halloween and ringing in a new year :) We might venture to dinner or have a low key night at home with a couple friends. I’m not really sure what we’re doing, but we’ve been working and moving at such a fast pace, I’m kind of welcoming a slow, relaxing day. Ha! Here’s to hoping! xo

  6. Catching up…forgive me! I laughed out loud at the Modern English Kitchen because that is me trying to decide between 2 colors; gave up and painted them both colors! Mine would not be as beautiful as these but I am loving the mix of olive green and dark blue. Your herringbone floors are dreams and that is what I like best about the color blocked bath. I have always loved gallery walls. This one tells a story and even these days, we need more of that. I think I would have chosen black, gold or wood instead of red but it works in this home.
    Good Pinterest post Sarah.

    1. Haha!! I love that! Somehow the olive and dark blue work really well together, but I never would’ve thought to do it. I almost went forest green in our kitchen. Part of me wants to incorporate it now. I totally agree with you on the gallery wall and homes telling a story. What a beautiful concept! It’s so creative and unique. I’m really glad you enjoyed this one, Danna :)
