As soon as I think I've designed my perfect future home, I see a house like this and get re-inspired. This Chicago home has so many wonderful elements that I look for. It's cozy and inviting, while still feeling really cool and modern. I'm especially fond of the styling- lots of ceramic bowls and natural rustic wood, combined with smooth modern lines from the mid-century modern furniture. So beautiful. VIA

This lovely Nordic home from Loppelilla, has all of my favorite elements for holiday decor inspiration. Wood, antlers, fur and branches are elegantly styled amidst the crisp white palette of this rustic home- giving it that natural wintery feel I love so much!
Is it just me, or does it feel like the longer you live in a space, the smaller it seems to become? This is definitely the case for me. I thought I didn't need a dining room or office when I moved in, but recently had a change of heart when I came home to a bed covered in unsorted junk mail. Ugh! So I started researching room dividers. Drapes, palettes, dressers... there are so many inexpensive ways to utilize unused real estate in your space, simply by dividing a room up. Take a look at some great examples...
Such a cool collection from TW Workshop by British designer Tracy Wilkinson! What initially caught my attention from her collection were the ceramic vessels intricately woven with wicker. They have this wonderful rustic and clearly - handmade - look. But really, getting one of these is just another excuse for me to bring pretty plants into my house!! Love them all...
I love a good house tour... like this one from the beautiful blog The Marion House Book. It has all the elements that get me excited about a home- a little vintage, great pops of color and a ton of personality. Click on any of the images below to read interviews of home owners Sarah Keenleyside and Jesse Boyer. So many inspiring ideas!!
Have you heard of HomeMint yet? This recently launched website is where where you'll find a collection of home goods and art designed and curated by pop-singer/style icon Justin Timberlake and his renowned celebrity stylist/interior designer Estee Stanley. I find it fascinating when celebrities get involved in the design world... especially when they're someone like JT! Who knew he had such a domestic side!? ha. The site even features some of his personal photography! You have to go through a quick sign up to view the collections, but it's definitely worth it to check everything out!
Grayish-purple walls accented with teal, white and yellow... I adore this fresh new palette for Spring. Not to mention, that sofa is to die for! VIA Style Cookie.
Oh my gracious, I totally have a new favorite designer! Actually, it's a design duo, husband and wife Robert and Cortney, who are best known as the Novogratz. I saw them on HGTV a few nights ago and they blew me away. After looking at their portfolio I was floored. Their spaces are quirky- colorful - practical - fun - elegant - modern - vintage - all with a no-rules approach. My favorite part is the fact that their rooms don't look overly designed or matchy-matchy (which I've never been a fan of.) Rather, the spaces look effortless- while still making a statement about whoever lives there. Definitely my kind of designers. It's a wonder how they do it all while raising seven children!
On top of this newly acquired cold, the hot and overcast weather is making me feel less than 100% today. A little pick-me-up in the shape of a circular flower will undoubtedly help boost my spirits. So after work I plan on heading to the market to pick up some chicken soup along with and a much-needed bouquet of Alliums. They are my absolute favorite flower for many reasons: They always look beautiful whether using them sparsely around the home or in an elaborate arrangements- and they always as sense of cheer to a space. Maybe it's the shape or the bright colors- whatever it is- it makes me happy... something I really need today. I hope you enjoy these inspirational Alliums I've found for all of you :)
