Living room by Robert Passal in Trad Home.

Today I’m just throwing up this quickie post as I’m working all day. Today’s room was designed by Robert Passable and is from Lonny magazine’s collaboration with Traditional Home. A totally beautiful living room. Calm, serene, classic. Love it. See the whole article here.

Have a happy Tuesday, y’all!

Today’s room is from the latest issue of Traditional Home. It is the study off of the master bedroom of designers Roger Higgins and Ann Shipp.

I love how serene this room is: the pale and neutral colors, the comfy looking sofa, the tone on tone walls and trim… So calming! See more of the designer’s amazing house at Traditional Home.

I’m going to see more of my room rearranging project. I’m at the part where you sort through all the junk you found while doing the moving furniture around phase. Not the fun bit… but, it has to be done! I hope you’re all having an amazing Tuesday. Not too cold and nippy but a nice sunny fall day like we’re having here in Charlotte. Catch you tomorrow. 🙂

Pale, soft, serene… The living room of actress Keri Russell and her husband, Shane Deary, is all of those things. The room is part of a whole house renovation that saw the couple doing a lot of hands on work themselves. I think the ‘labor of love’ aspect shows through brilliantly. The overall vibe is one of easy, comforting elegance. Definitely a totally inspiring room!

On a side note: the overall look here reminds me strongly of Andrew Corrie and Harriet Maxwell-McDonald’s aesthetic at Ochre and Canvas and in their own home. The one difference is that the Russell/Deary house’s wood is a dark, rich color and the Corrie/Maxwell-McDonald look is usually pale, bleached or light woods and more aged metal. Very similar though.

Happy Tuesday, everyone! What’s inspiring you today?

By now, anyone who reads this blog should know how much I absolutely adore Sandra Suy. I check her Dripbook page to keep up on new work and just to  generally drool over the arty goodness that is Sandra Suy.

Can you believe all the times I’ve been on Dripbook it never occurred to me to look for more art and illustration? Well, I’m making up for lost time…

I love that ultrablond halo – she looks like a siren!

Apparently, I’m also a fan of underwater photography because that’s what caught my eye. This set is by photographer Mallory Morrison. Please don’t let this person have an online shop like Sandra Suy does or I’m doomed!
