more femme vibes

I love this setup. A nice mix of classic and modern for a true "I love the classics but want to look a little cooler" vibe. Truth be told, I've been trying to write this post for awhile. Sometimes it's hard for me to explain why something works so well together in my brain, and it's easier to just put it all together visually and let it speak for itself.

Alas, HERE WE GO! Let's give this a try.

This CB2 chair has been on my radar for awhile now. Is it comfortable? Probably not. Is it extremely cool looking and stylish? Absolutely. Having a piece like this in an empty corner of the room, or as a side chair in a bedroom is a perfect use! Sometimes you need to sacrifice comfort for style... Sorry friends!

I love a good classic sofa. Many times I'll have clients dismiss the idea of a slipcovered piece because it's very traditional or "granny" for lack of a better word. Hoping this style proves you wrong! Low and deep seat makes for a super loungey, curl up in yourself type of environment. Just the way I like it. It'll be able to translate into multiple styles as your own evolves throughout the years!

And since I'm a nerd about how things are made and the design process/thinking behind them, here's a little tidbit about the design of this Maxwell sofa at Interior Define! Just try to ignore the "interesting" commentary left by readers below the video.

I've been a long time fan of this shop for pillows. Unique and textural, I really haven't seen any like them elsewhere! Arianna Belle always has a great selection, some better than others. I know mudcloth is on its way out, more than likely, but I just can't resist a funky uniquely geometric one.

sunroom vibes

Back from Cali and breaking the radio silence! Can't wait to share some of the things we saw. If you were following my daily stories on instagram, you probably have a good sense of where we were already, but I'm looking forward to sharing more in-depth fun times on here. There's SO MUCH to sift through! We got back to a blooming and blossoming Boston just in time to continue our Cali vibezzz.

I'm loving the freedom since coming back from Cali and riding the inspiration wave. The best part about this new journey of mine is that I actually have time to sit and play around with some ideas without having a time crunch / daily deadline to meet. Like a leisurely stroll through the park!

I put together this little number a few weeks ago when I was re-imagining a local client's sunroom space. This little room was so cozy and had windows on three of the four walls, making it the perfect spot to relax and unwind with coffee, wine, music, or a magazine. I wanted this space to feel interesting, put-together, practical (I mean, it was small) and of course: eclectic!

This adorable little plush sofa has some Scandinavian qualities and plenty of cozy cushions for napping. I'm always one for deep sofas (and this one definitely is not), but this fits the bill for a cute, good-looking sofa in a smaller space. Anyone who's been following me for some time knows how much I adore Bunglo, some of which is in Eunice's family room. I love the palettes that Shay chooses for her patterns and after seeing her pillows in real life, I can fully attest to their quality - full, fluffy, well-made! I love the contrast of this blush subtle pattern with the bold black and white of the African mudcloth.

Classic pieces are always good pieces to invest in as long as they're practical for your lifestyle. This gold and glass table can be easily translated into so many different styles and spaces, as well as this simple rug. There's something about this dresser that is also simple but so interesting in its details - the bone handles, the notches on the bottom, the ming shape of the legs. Gimme.

My clients know and appreciate how much I love white vases of all shapes, textures, and sizes. Colored vases... Ehhh! There's something about the white that makes it more of a sculptural piece than just a vase. A work of art, but not obnoxiously colored. A simple statement. I feel the same way about this lamp - it's quirky and classic all at the same time.

The wood and leather chair brings some real weathered feels to the space. It's one thing to put a bunch of new fancy things into a room, but it's another to make it feel homey - that's where these worn elements come in handy! If you can't find a cool vintage thing, look for something distressed-ish but not obviously distressed. Nothing worse than a really poor fake distress job, am I right?
