An Unexpected Palette

I saw this room on Instagram last night (designed by Allison Elebash) and found the palette of medium/ light blue and blush to be really unexpected in a family space. I would typically think of these tones as too sweet and baby-ish to pair together in an adult space, but it TOTALLY works and looks fresh and interesting!  The painting by Sally King Benedict certainly adds some grown up funkiness, and the woven textures of the sofa ground everything.

The Dreamiest Bedroom EVER.

Mark Sikes is a decorator’s decorator. I would hire him in a minute to do my own house without question and let him just go to town. I imagine we’d have a Chip-and Joanna reveal and I would cry and hug him and all would be right in the world.

Anyways, he’s a genius with impeccable taste.  Case in point, his bedroom in the Kips Bay Decorator’s Showhouse. I. AM. OBSESSED.

A High/Low Guest Room Makeover

I saw some bedding I loved on Williams Sonoma Home and it inspired me to create a high/low guest room look illustrating how it’s possible to get the same style for less than half the cost. (Side note: These side tables in the low version are from Target’s new collection and come in white too- love the faux bamboo leg!)


An Adorable Bedroom + Awesome (Affordable) Wallpapers

Sorry this is so late you guys- between my renovation, Henry, work and LIFE I’ve been running behind on everything for the past few days. Which I hate. But at least I’m showing up, right? :)
So I saw this picture on Susanna Salk’s instagram last week (btw her new book about dogs and their designers looks so awesome)- and I just fell in love. It’s an old image from Elle Decor’s 2010 Showhouse and this space is by Suzanne Tucker….and it’s so damn charming.  Granny-chic is making a fast and furious comeback in a BIG way these days (more on that another day) and this room is a great mix of that and some more modern colors.  I’d love this kind of scheme for a tween/teen girls room. The beds are killer (probably vintage) but I found some nice alternates below.

Creating A Perfect Bed with Crane & Canopy

After a long day, there is nothing more relaxing than getting into a bed with nice, crisp bedding on it. I have come to really appreciate nice bedding, but don’t have the budget for the super fancy stuff (also, I have two dirty dogs who sleep in bed with me). I’ve become a big fan of Crane & Canopy bedding, who is now a sponsor of EOS, for their amazing quality and unique features. As you may recall we redid my guest room with their bedding (see post here) and now I sometimes sleep in the guest room just because the sheets and duvet feel so nice (and also as a mini break from said dirty dogs and big husband hogging the bed).
