Bright and Casual Modern Bohemian Home

I fell for this casual cool home instantly, and the pops of bohemian fabrics, cow hides, rustic woods, and great artwork were just the icing on the home tour cake.  The beautiful design was actually styled for sale by Lucy Fenton (the owners were overseas, so she had a blank canvas to work on).  Talk about one awesome Summer project!

I’ll be dreaming of that checkered chair and the bright pops of color on the throw pillows and woven rug.  The clean white lines and rustic wood paneling and furniture in the kitchen and dining room are equal parts cool and retro.

I’d also happily take a cat nap in that lovely bedroom … the bone inlay side table is too chic.

The colorful bohemian nursery and playroom are hands-down my favorite looks in the home.

And that patio below?  Oh my gosh, yes.

Baby Girl’s Nursery: On Her Bookshelf

Earlier this month I shared the nursery inspiration style board for baby girl’s upcoming Paris chic nursery, and today I’m so excited to share her bookshelf styling as well.  I fell instantly in love with the Petal Pusher Wallpaper in Gold, OhJoy! for Hygge & West (and doesn’t it make just the dreamiest of backdrops?), though we’re only in this apartment for another ten-or-so months … so we may just frame wallpaper samples for the time being.  Other than that, we’re going a bit accessory crazy, because there is just so much cuteness out there.  The Paris prints keep our French theme going strong, and we’ve stocked up on all of my own favorite books that I adored as a little girl.  (Now let’s just hope the real-life version looks half as good!)

Baby Girl’s Nursery: Paris Chic Style Board

Last week I shared a bit of the behind-the-scenes inspiration for baby girl’s nursery to be, and this week I’m revealing the amazing nursery style board that Katerina of Lex & Liv created for us.  Though a lot of the furniture is still on it’s way, and a few of the decor details have yet to be finalized, I was really blown away when I first saw how everything we had imagined could look all pulled together.

Of course, in terms of the actual room itself, we do have a ways to go, and I still panic that it won’t all be done in time, but I’m starting to figure out that that’s okay too!  Five-and-a-half weeks to go … eek!


Light and Bright Home in Sweden

I fell for this beautiful airy Swedish home (owned and designed by Sofia of the lovely blog, Mokkasin; and recently featured on Elle Decoration) the moment I saw it.  The home, painted in mostly white, is full of colorful and whimsical touches, hand-crafted wood details, flea market finds, vases full of fresh flowers, books and musical instruments … so very cool.

I’m surprised how much I adore the modern-designed furniture, but in this home, it all just fits.

I’m also pretty smitten with that craft room – all of that pattern and the vintage wood filing cabinets … swoon.

Doesn’t this make you want an all-white kitchen and veranda as soon as possible?

Black + White Home Design Accents

I am a black-wearer through and through. If any one quote were to sum up my style: “I’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker color.”  So the obsession was likely to spill into my home design leanings as well.  Though I’m trying to lighten our own home up for Spring and Summer, the combination of black and white is always modern and fresh.

Are you a fan of the classic black and white decorating trend or do you prefer pops of color strewn about the house?  Something in between?

Baby Girl’s Nursery Inspiration: Parisian Chic

Baby girl’s room is still very much a work-in-progress (which admittedly, may be cutting it close, considering she’s due in about seven weeks … whoops!) but I wanted to share some of the inspiration we’ve been pulling together for her dream room.*

I knew from the start that I wanted something neutral, soft, and dreamy, with pops of black, gold, and subtle hints of very pale pink.  I tried to be wary of keeping the design from getting too black (because goodness knows if I could paint the world in black, I would … or at the very least, throw a black leather jacket on everyone.)  And black was a non-negotiable when I discovered these black-spotted crib sheets and this PB Teen clothing rack.  I also always wanted the room to have a notable French vibe, something very Parisian and chic, with vintage touches (along with a more modern white crib.)  I knew that travel and great vintage-inspired pieces had to find their way into the mix, and I figured roses would be the feminine flower touch of choice.  (By the way, so in love with the gold rose wallpaper that Oh Joy! designed for Hygge & West … if I didn’t already know we’d be moving in less than a year, I would have absolutely covered at least one wall in that paper!)

We still have a ways to go, and I’ve certainly had moments of hormonal panic where I’m convinced baby girl will have nowhere to sleep when she arrives, but the furniture is on order, and I have friends and family ready and willing to help with the set up, when everything finally does arrive (be warned:  baby furniture can take anywhere from 2 to 10 weeks to arrive!).  Plus, if I’m putting up prints and decor touches after she’s already made her big debut, odds are, no one will be the wiser.

You can see all of my nursery inspiration, here.

*The amazingly talented Katerina of Lex & Liv has been helping me rein in all of my nursery ideas, and she’ll be sharing our incredible style board soon.  (In the meantime, you can also check out the Pinterest board she created for baby girl’s nursery, here.)  And then … fingers crossed … we’ll be on to the finished product!
