This cool, eclectic bedroom, designed by Twofold LA and spotted on My Domaine, looks oh-so-cozy to curl up in at the end of a long day. The many textures—leather, fur, velvet, jute, and cotton—mix and mingle so nicely in the space, though it’s hard for anything to compete with that stunning peacock mirror over the bed. I’m also digging the graphic black and white accents—always a chic, contemporary touch. Which piece is begging to be in your shopping cart?
Our beloved Studio McGee took the top spot in our latest room redo vote with this bright and happy entryway. The stunning inlay chest draws your eye in right away, while the soft blue accents and coral sculpture are a subtle nod to the nearby beach. The bamboo mirror and blue and white planter add a touch of chinoiserie style, and the leather stools create the perfect spot for tying your shoes or keeping your bag handy. P.S. If a bone inlay dresser is outside of your price range, you can DIY one with paint!
It’s all about texture these days, from a shaggy flokati throw to a durable seagrass rug. If your space is lacking in that department, a hint of linen is definitely a step in the right direction. Subbing in linen for plain cotton, hard wood or metal, or even paper (like on those chic linen-matted picture frames) can make a surprisingly big difference in how warm and layered a room feels. I’m a linen bedding convert myself—it’s the perfect balance between light/breezy and cool/cozy—but there are plenty more finds here to bring a bit of linen goodness into your home. Which one would you go for in your space?
I can’t get enough of Sophie Carpenter’s sleek bathroom spotted on SF Girl by Bay. That gorgeous floating vanity (with oodles of storage) really grounds the space while the brass mirror and sconces draw your eye up. I’m a firm believer in less-is-more when it comes to countertop accessories, but the luxe planters, candle, and artisanal storage cups used here definitely make the grade. My favorite part might be the sconces, and though I’ve linked the original ones here, don’t miss this similar look for less!
For those with black thumbs out there, here are sixteen beautiful chances to give your home some life! Yes, you can buy live plants online (ok…and at IKEA), and who wouldn’t want one of these lovelies delivered straight to your door? If you’re short on surface space, a hip wall planter like number three or twelve is the way to go. I’m a fan of having a high-impact, large-scale plant in a living space, like numbers six, nine, or eleven. That said, all it takes is a little (hard to kill) succulent to make a room, even a petite one like a powder room, come alive. And don’t forget that kitchen herbs (number five) are beautiful, edible, and money-saving. Here’s to thumbs turning green in 2017!
