Apartment Therapy published this article in 2013, but the design still feels so fresh today—probably because they didn’t follow any of-the-moment trends. Instead, the room was designed around the art prints by Carin Goldberg—man, I love them—which really bring the space to life.

Refinery29 published this infographic, illustrated by Isabel Castillo Guijarro, to explain the difference between a $200 pair of jeans and a $20 pair. I have never been proud of my fast fashion purchases and this only affirms, well, partly, my guilt, and mostly: how much things need to change. (Click the image to enlarge.)

What an interesting bedroom. From this angle, it almost looks neutral:
But turn your head, and kapow!
This bedroom is just one exciting part of a 3-story, Dallas, Texas condo designed by Abbe Fenimore of Studio Ten 25. Even though my insides are on a massive swoon-fest, I am so humbled by the level of sophistication here that I bow down to the designer in quiet restraint (instead of throwing myself at her feet and squealing, like I really want to do).
This next photo might be my favorite surprise in this room. It’s a tasteful glimpse of spotted wallpaper behind equally tasteful shelving. And I know the wallpaper well—Tanzania by Thibaut—as I have eyed it many, many times and could probably draw it from memory by now. (My obsession with this wallpaper: not so tasteful.)
Lastly, I’d like to share this photo of one of the bathrooms in the same Dallas home, because, well, you’ll see. I can’t not share this one:

Tobi Fairley is one of my favorite designers to watch. Her brazenly bold, feminine interiors are certainly not for everyone, but they almost always stir up giddy feelings in me. Even when I disagree with one of her design choices, I still want to roll around in them. Roll around, put my feet in the air, and giggle. I wonder how she would feel knowing she has that affect on people.
This very blue kitchen and family room she designed capitalizes on those giddiest of feelings, especially the feelings that are connected to my love of blue, which are connected to my love of anything that feels like an ocean, which this room certainly does. Cue rolling around and giggling.

We’ve been back in the U.S. for four months now. We’re not settled in by any means—we’re living in my parents’ house and job hunting—but despite that, I’m in house mode. I’m always in house mode.
I love this wooden alphabet bookend from graphicspaces.com. It makes me want to fill shelves again.

I come across a lot of ideas, but none of them have struck me quite like this one. It was also built in 1976 and is also in the Pacific Northwest, and this whole remodel would just work.
The company responsible for this remodel, NW Renovations & Design Co., is based in Portland. They’re going on my watchlist.
