I’m in love with this sofa. It just reminds me of a place I would want to curl up with a book and a coffee on a rainy day in Paris.
You can find this baby on One Kings Lane (Simone Sofa.)
I’ve probably been spending a little too much time online because I have so many photos to create imaginary rooms with! This one started with the chair. I love the pops of red, white, blue, and green!
I’ve got a chair I’ve been working on, and it just hasn’t been going anywhere because I’ve been waiting to find that perfect fabric. I keep flip flopping between something traditional (because it does have cane backing) or something a little funkier (I’ve looked at tribal prints, monkey prints, sea horses…) After creating this board, I think I’ve decided on a funky pattern in traditional colors, like red or blue.
What do I do in my spare time? Create imaginary rooms for my future homes!
Here’s the latest!
It all started with this gorgeous Max Gottschalk bench I stumbled across on 1st Dibs. The rug is from West Elm (!!!) (they have some rugs that are so chic at such a good price point!) The lamp is midcentury (also from 1st Dibs). Both pillows come from One Kings Lane. I love the white one and use it for “inspiration boards” all the time. And I love these antique pitchers because they’re a different take on classic blue and white.
Found these images, and think these pieces would fit together to form the perfect reading nook. The colors keep it classic, while the mirror and side table keep it bright, fun, and modern.
What would you use to create an ideal space for some quality “me” time?
I am loving these looks right now… apparently I am ALL about the COLOR this week! 🙂
Not sure where the photos came from, I’ve just shimmied them into the “inspiration” folder on my desktop over the past week.
Notice a common theme (other than color) going on here? All of these items would make for pretty easy projects (the chair would probably be the hardest one because you’d have to re-upholser depending on what you find.) A coat of paint and you’re pretty much done. Perfect ideas for time pressed rehabbers who want to breathe new life into their space!
So I’ve been on a hunt, no, more like a quest for the perfect rug.
I’ve been wanting to re-do my living room for quite some time, and for some reason a rug just feels like a big commitment.
I’ve decided that a woven rug is the look I’m going for– breezy, casual, but with a touch of elegance. Easy to dress up or dress down (though it sounds like I’m talking about clothes, I’m still on rugs.)
After pulling photos from Pottery Barn and my favorite discount sites Joss and Main and One Kings Lane, I found some reasonable rugs at Ikea. Yeah, still the devil, but you can order online and avoid the store all together.
Here are my top two choices:
They’re pretty similar, but it is all about the border for me. I think it looks classy, a friend I emailed the options to thought the border made it look like an outdoor rug. A couple of days later we were walking through Ralph Lauren Home (my happy place) and I noticed bordered rugs scattered throughout.
The non-border rug is thicker, which I like to absorb noise, but the thinner rug just feels more luxe for some reason. Maybe I’m off base– what do you think?
Maybe I’m a little dramatic, but this blue pine table from One Kings Lane is the stuff I dream about at night! The vintage-y goodness of the shape, the colors, the chippy paint… okay, I’m drooling.
Even better? It’s on clearance!!! I love it so so much, but unfortunately am not on the market for a new table. Still, had to share, and it IS great inspiration for upcoming projects!
Loving this gorgeous coffee table by Heather Garrett on One Kings Lane. The shape kinda reminds me of my “$2000 coffee table”! But the true brilliance is the wallpaper pattern.
This would be easy for any rehabber to recreate… just put the wallpaper (or even a cool piece of fabric that you could change out with your mood) under the glass or have another piece of glass (or even wood) cut and just cover it, and top with the glass you have.
