Good Morning! Are any of you wondering where the weekend went – I know I am. I think it’s because last weekend was a long one due to Thanksgiving, and I’m rather partial to long weekends so wish every weekend was at least three days long.
I came across this image a while back and I fell instantly in love. This was the living room of David Collins, who was an Irish Architect and Interior Designer based in London.
I love how the room is comprised of mostly blue hues, but with a small pops of gold, and the stunning purple artwork. It’s a very masculine space, and even though it was designed 4+ years ago I think it’s timeless. I’m quite smitten with the royal blue sofa upholstered in velvet and want to curl up on it with a good book.
What do you think? Do you like this space as much as I do? If you could use one thing in this room in your home what would it be?
PS – I couldn’t find the original image on the AD Spain website. It and more shots of David Collins’ apartment can be found here.
Good Morning Everyone! This is going to be a short post today, as I was up late last night working on some homework for my colour theory class, and it was one am before I realized I hadn’t written a post yet for the morning (nor had I managed to write my BlogPodium recap, but that’s another issue).
Fiddle Leaf tree’s have been pretty popular in the last year or so, and when Lindsay over at Little House Blog posted in February that Ikea sold them for $15 I headed out and bought one. I was happy with it for about a week, and then I realized that I may have a bit of a black thumb when it comes to plants. It hasn’t really died, but it’s no longer pretty – the leaves that have toughed it out have gone brown around the edges, but most have fallen off so my cute little tree now looks rather sad. I can’t get rid of it though ’cause it’s not TRULY dead.
Anyways, I’ve had this image of Keri Russell’s Brooklyn home pinned for a few months, and while I love her livingroom (the fireplace, the crown moulding!!!), I’m fairly certain what originally drew me to the photo was her lovely, healthy, THRIVING Fiddle Leaf tree by the window. Some people are jealous of Keri Russell because she’s gorgeous, some because of her hair (tell me you remember her in Felicity), but not me – I’m jealous of her tree.
You can see more of Keri Russell’s home in Elle Decor.
I think I’ve mentioned that I’m taking an Intro. to Drafting course, and it wraps up in just over a week. For the final project we have to draft a floor plan for a condo which mean I’ve been trolling Pinterest and the internet at large for inspiration on furniture ideas.
I found this image of a living room designed by Caitlin Wilson and I fell in love. While this shade of pink is a very bold and striking colour, decorating the rest of the room in mostly whites and creams means the couch, while undeniably the center of attention in the room, isn’t competing visually against anything else. It’s without a doubt a feminine space, but it’s also a relaxed and happy one.
What do you think? Could you live with a pink couch?
