Hello Friends!

Can you believe that Labor Day weekend is already here?! I feel like I was just digging out my summer clothes and itching to get to the beach while the temps slowly crept up to the 80s. I’ve had such a busy summer over here filled with lots of design projects, enjoying the lake, and sipping all the iced coffee. Oh, and my husband and I purchased our first home!! We’ve got tons of projects in the near future and I can’t wait to bring you along with us so stay tuned!

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite home decor items that are on sale in honor of the holiday weekend! These are pieces that I always go back to and have incorporated into several of my e-design projects so I hope you love them just a much as I do 🙂

 

Now I’m off to do some exploring in my own city, get some house work done, and spend time with family. I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy soaking up the last few days of summer!

Outdoor Patio Design

Outdoor Patio Design

Happy Friday Friends! One of my favorite areas in a home is the outdoor space. I LOVE spending time outdoors and find it’s a huge mood booster for me. When my husband and I go out for a date night and try to decide where to go for dinner, my first deciding factor doesn’t have anything to do with the food, it’s “Does this place have a nice outdoor patio?”

A few weeks ago we went out for dinner at a restaurant with an incredible outdoor patio space with beautiful stone fireplaces, strung garden lights, and the trees were full of pink blooms so that was an added bonus!! I think I said “I love it here” like 15 times while we were sitting there eating our dinner.  When a place has a good atmosphere I’m more likely to linger longer and enjoy the company of the people I’m with. To me that’s what design is ALL about!! Creating spaces that allow people to slow down and soak up the good stuff our lives are filled with.

Today I am sharing a patio design with y’all that will hopefully inspire you to create your own outdoor oasis to share with friends and family. This modern patio would be the perfect place to host a killer BBQ, or have family dinners. It may not come with pink blooming trees, BUT it does come with a bar cart so I think that’s a pretty good trade off 😉

Room Repeat: A Collected Monochrome Entryway

Room Repeat: A Collected Monochrome Entryway

via: West Elm

Hello Friends! I hope you’ve had a great week. Today I’m here to share this month’s Room Repeat! Last months Room Repeat post was a huge hit, so I can’t wait to see what you guys take away from this one!

It’s no secret that I LOVE West Elm. I could spend hours wandering around their store dreaming up different combinations of furniture pieces and accessories. So when I came across this neutral entryway on the West Elm blog, I knew it would be perfect for a Room Repeat post. So let’s dive in!

What caught my eye right away in this space was how warm and inviting it is. I don’t know about you, but that’s how I want people to feel when they walk into my house. So let’s break it down and see what elements we can pull out of this design so that you can create that same feeling in your own entryway.

The main piece in this design is the console. Not only does it have a really clean look to it, but the medium wood tones feel really welcoming. And the brass accents compliment the wood finish perfectly. To coordinate with the brass on the console, a large framed mirror is hung above for wall decor. It helps reflect light and gives the perfect opportunity to make sure you’re looking good before you head out the door 😉

Since most of the decor is fairly neutral in this space, adding in a potted plant helps add a pop of greenery. It pairs perfectly with the wood tones in the console. And how about that super fun planter?! I love that it has some height so that it really stands out on its own as one of the main design elements of this space. Above the plant hangs a framed California print to create contrast against the white wall. I like that it’s not perfectly centered above the plant, or the console to create an eclectic vibe.

To finish this design off, a funky modern lamp is placed on top of the console for ambient lighting. I love the sculptural shape it has! Books are added to the bottom with fun accessories to create a collected look. The brass turtle coordinates with the brass mirror and console accents, while the black globe works well with the black lamp and framed print. And last but not least are some decorative candles. They are the perfect element to make your home feel inviting for guests!

Scroll down to see how you can repeat this look in your own home!

Affordable Scandinavian Dining Room Design

Affordable Scandinavian Dining Room Design

Lately I have been drawn to interiors that are minimal, functional, and more on the neutral side (which is actually shocking since I’m usually the girl who likes a room filled with pops of color). I think a room with less stuff in it allows our mind to feel more relaxed, and I know we could all use a little more of that 😉  So when I got a request from a client to do a minimalistic Scandinavian dining room project last week I couldn’t wait to get started!

I’ve heard of Scandinavian design, but was curious to learn more about what exactly makes a space Scandinavian style. Before I started digging into this project I did a little Wikipedia research. I learned that this particular design style is characterized by “simplicity, minimalism and functionality”.  Looks like this new project was right in line with what my creative brain had been craving!

Last week I posted the concept board for this project over on instagram and it received a lot of love. So I thought it would be fun to create my own Scandinavian dining room design and today I am sharing the final look with direct sources so that you can recreate this design in your own home all for under $1,800!!!

 

 

 

 

I hope you are loving this design style as much as I am! If you don’t have any plans for the weekend head over to IKEA. The Scandinavia movement started in Sweden which is where Ikea is from, so their store is packed full of affordable Scandinavian home decor!

Room Repeat: Airy Mid-century Master Bedroom

Room Repeat: Airy Mid-century Master Bedroom

Welcome to the Room Repeat Series! Once a month I’ll be choosing a space from one of my favorite designers and sourcing similar products seen in the design so that you can easily recreate the look in your own home. And as always, my goal is to source affordable items so that you can create a space in your home you’re proud of without having to break the bank 🙂

So for our first Room Repeat I couldn’t wait to share this master bedroom space by Lindye Galloway! She is one of my FAVORITE designers and has an Instagram feed packed full of beautiful spaces. It’s not wonder this master bedroom design of hers is one of the top images clients send me to use as inspiration for their e-design projects.

The first thing that draws me in is how light and airy this room is. The light gray walls paired with the medium wood bed creates the perfect mix of cool and warm tones. I love how the shag rug creates a soft place to land your feet when you get out of bed in the morning and frames the bed really nicely.

The midcentury brass chandelier creates a really fun statement and accents the gold nightstands. The nightstands have glass shelves so they help keep that airy feel in the room. And how about that abstract wall art?! I love how these pieces add a bold pop to the room and accent the black and white mud cloth pillows perfectly.

I’m just in LOVE with this whole room and hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Now let me show you how you can Repeat this look for your own home!

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12

I hope you guys found this room inspiring! Comment below and tell me what room I should do for the next Room Repeat post. And as always, if you need help turning a room in your house into a space you’re proud of, I’d love to be apart of your next project! You can check out my e-design packages HERE.

Have a great weekend friends!
