Rust and Blush Living Room

Happy Tuesday! Over the weekend we visited cousins and their babies in Cleveland. (If you caught my insta-stories you know what I’m talking about) Cleveland has so much amazing architecture, culture, and things to do. We had a great time!

Today’s board features a rust and blush color harmony. This is a classic pair that I talked about a little bit here. When paired with white walls, black accents, and a minimalist style these colors really shine and feel very warm and cozy! The style of this room is modern and contemporary.

I like to design with a particular person in mind, and here I give a short description of who I think that person is and what their lifestyle is like. This makes designing more fun and meaningful, since design is about describing someone visually in order to help you get to know them. In these posts I reverse the process!

Sadie and Mark live in a Seattle apartment. They’ve softened the busy city with cozy colors and an open living space. Mark works at an architecture firm and Sadie was just hired as the social media director for a start-up. They have had their dopey chocolate lab, Duke for almost 6 years and he has spent every day barking at anything outside that moves. They are both crazy about card games, which are anything but subdued! Game nights at their place are legendary. Mark has always wanted to learn to cook and Sadie has always hated cooking so together they are learning how. In their free time they rewatch The Office, visit Sadie’s grandmother, and walk in the park, rain or no rain.

My favorite part of this room is the large rust-colored chair from Crate and Barrel. It looks like you could just sink into it forever… Second favorite would have the be that vintage planter from Chairish! Its floral, and slightly out of place with the modern style of everything but its a great little accent. Third favorite is that check rug from Loloi Rugs! Its got the perfect amount of color, texture, and pattern. I will definitely be using it again.

Boho Industrial Studio

Hello everyone! Today is our first day back to the grind after our LA adventure, of which you can learn all about here, and watch in my highlights here! The trip was the perfect balance between funwork and play! Stay tuned for a post letting you know everywhere we went, everything we did, and – most importantly – everything we ate!!

In the meantime, here is some global industrial inspiration! This loft feels really young and colorful. My Favorite piece by far is the concrete pendant from Serena and Lily.

A young couple’s first apartment together. Ethan and Olivia moved to this Tulsa Studio apartment 6 months ago and, even though they stumble through the beginnings of adulthood, they revel in their “ownership” of the 850 sq. ft. studio. Their styles, mercifully, are very similar to one another’s, which curtails arguments on THAT score. Both favoring global and industrial elements with modern touches and an eclectic atmosphere. Ethan is a barista by day and stand-up comedian by night. He has big blue eyes and is obsessed with anything coconut flavored. Olivia is a part-time student of marketing with a social media concentration and part-time dog-walker. She has long, blond, hair and likes to tie it back with a green strip of linen. Olivia likes to experiment with different flavors of homemade hummus, using Ethan as a taste tester. Somehow she can never get it right. What she doesn’t know, and what Ethan doesn’t have the heart to tell her is that he doesn’t really like hummus all that much.
