Get the Look: Bright & Rustic

This weekend we were away in the country (more on that tomorrow) and it had me all kind of jazzed about rustic, country decor. I think I get this way every fall though.  New England shines brightest this time of year, and I like to bring that cozy vibe into the home when I can.  This picture I found on Pinterest combines my love of black, white and bright rooms with rustic details as well.  I love how it mixes in a couple modern pieces too to keep things unexpected.

Couple Crush: Gen & Ben Sohr

Did you guys see the tour of Ben and Gen Sohr’s home on One Kings’s Lane???  It’s awesome.  This couple is too cool for school.  I love their bold yet not TOO crazy look and thought I’d share it along with some picks on getting the look.

This kitchen- yes please.

Love the brass open shelves flanking that oh-la-la range.

A great graphic wallpaper in the entry hall adds some drama, but paired with simple, classic sconces to keep it from getting too bold.

A Renovation to Inspire.

Country Living isn’t a magazine I subscribe to, but I think I may have to. I admire lots of different styles, and lately I find that when I pick that magazine up there are more and more spaces that speak to me in certain ways.  Like this story of a renovation done by Sara Story for her sister on her dated 70’s Connecticut house.  The best part of this renovation is that it wasn’t a major renovation with tons of construction, but basically one done with paint, paper, furniture and lighting.  Goes to show you how much different a space can look without tearing down walls and busting the budget!

I LOVE this dining room with walls done in Schumacher’s Chenonceau paper.  With all the simple white details- drapes, bentwood chairs, buffet and rug.  It’s a good idea to let a bold paper make the single statement in a room.

Look at the before! Reminds me of my kitchen/ dining room when we bought our house!


Two (Vastly Different) Celebrity Homes You Need to See

Architectural Digest shared the homes of two high profile couples this month, and while each are amazing in their own right, they couldn’t be more different. And that’s what I love about interior design- the way it can tell you so much about the lives and personalities of those who live in these spaces.

First up, the amazing New York City abode of Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent and their daughter Poppy.  Let’s start with this INSANE kitchen. The brass island, the glossy black cabinets, the floors,  the unbelievable windows???

This is just so amazing- the architecture is so unique.  Moe proof that older home ROCK.


Entry Envy

My house barely has an entry- when you open the front door it nearly hits the stairs so we just have a little coat hook rack on the wall and that’s about it! Someday I hope to have a slightly more spacious entry, and totally LOVE drooling over other peoples- grand, small, formal and casual. The entry is the introduction to your home, so it should say a little bit about your style. I am madly in love with this entry shot from Veranda’s spread of designer Andrew Brown’s adorable, eclectic cottage in Birmingham, Alabama. It’s such a nice balance of interesting and simple.  The layered art, the sleek but interesting tortoise-shell patterned console and heavily textured basket really adds up to something beautiful.

So I tried to recreate it for you, using retail goods and hint of vintage!
