Erline Fringe Rug

This is the 8×10″ rug I just bought for our bedroom. It’s nuLOOM’s Erline Fringe Flatweave Rug in silver. It’s mostly neutral and will work with both our green walls and any style décor we choose.

It’s exciting to finally be at this point in the journey. Buy all the things!

A Second Room & Board Sofa

Posted 31 May 2019 at 12:38 AM | Comments (0)

The first sofa we ever bought was the Mercer sofa from Room & Board in a pale, cool yellow called “celery.” It was 2003 and we were furnishing our first condo. It took a couple of weeks to be able to sit on it completely, as we were so nervous about ruining our expensive, mature purchase.

At some point they discontinued the Mercer sofa, and it was updated to become the Reese sofa. I didn’t like it as much as the Mercer, but it didn’t matter, because we ended up selling everything and moving overseas, so it was unlikely that we would shop at Room & Board ever again.

Except that we came back. We remodeled a house. And after testing many sofas in person, it became obvious to us that we would have to buy a Room & Board sofa again, as it was the most comfortable, high-quality sofa we have ever had.

So… ironically, we just bought the Reese. Sixteen years later. It’s the circle of life.

Curved Sofas are the Next Big Thing

Linear, Midcentury-inspired sofas have been holding court for a while now, but that’s about to change. ‘70s-inspired curvy styles have been creeping into the market over the past couple of years, and now we’re seeing them at a lower, more accessible price point. And you know what that means.

It’s about to hit the masses.

I’ve been considering Sherwin-Williams’ Retreat for my bedroom, so naturally, an image search followed. I came upon this beautiful, ocean-inspired kitchen by an interior design firm in Florida.

I could stare all day.

It’s the soft, aqua tiles next to the earthy green, isn’t it? And the brass lanterns with the turquoise insides? Those contrasts are irresistible.

Bedroom in Carolina Gull by Tali Roth

I have consistently envisioned my lake house bedroom with a bright, beachy color palette. AND THEN I saw this bedroom by Homepolish designer, Tali Roth, painted in Benjamin Moore’s Carolina Gull, and now I am reconsidering everything. Dangit.

Brooklyn Guest Room/Office Makeover

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.

Riverside Penthouse Living Room with a Clever Color Palette

I know that Tobi Fairley can be over-the-top, but her interiors always evoke something in me, and I imagine that’s why she’s so successful. You can’t tiptoe past one of her rooms; you stop dead in your tracks.

And because I am obsessed with the idea of a teal velvet sofa, I stared at this photo for a lot longer than is probably healthy. Just look at this room! How luxurious yet convivial! What a clever color palette!

Yes, that’s exactly how I speak when addressing her work.

‘70s-Inspired Pink Bedroom

Happy Valentine’s Day! I just saw this appropriately pink room in Domino and couldn’t resist posting, not just because it’s pink, but because it’s the same pink as my mother’s 1970s bedroom. The difference is that her bedroom is not exactly “‘70s-inspired”… it’s just ‘70s.

If I could just convince my mother to get rid of her unreasonably large furnishings, we could simplify her bedroom enough to be cool. The compelling art, sculptural plant, and second seat are all the accessories that were needed to make this room special.
