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!!

This is Justina Blakeney. I've had a wild design-crush on her for ages now. I should warn you, after seeing her work, you may too. Don't be suprised if you get the strong urge to travel the world, even if it's just to pick out cool objects your home. You might even find yourself sticking plants in every vacant crevice of your home. That's because you'll notice that in just about every photograph on her site, theres a plant that brings beautiful life to every room. This makes me wish I wasn't cursed with a black thumb (I'm pratically incapable of keeping any plant alive...) There's just so much to be inspired by on her site! So, I think it's about time I introduced you to Justina's work...
"[Her] space is all about creative reuse, personalization, vivid colors, bold patterns, worldly and thrifted finds, and lots and lots of plants... [Her] style is tropical and bohemian, very vintage and very cozy. [It's] about bringing the eclecticism of nature and the wild--indoors."
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!
