Totally Inspiring Room

The gorgeous masculine glamour of this foyer by Osborn Architects blows my mind!

It’s totally inspiring room… the late night edition! Better late than never, I say, especially when the room is this cool. Ok, so technically it’s an entry and it’s also just a glimpse. Still, isn’t this glimpse tantalizing enough to draw you into the rest of the house? Check out the cool blog Rex Kelly Mid-Century to see more of the house which was done by Osborne Architects! Happy night owling, y’all!

Soft, serene, and utterly feminine yet simple… today’s room is an I inspiring, restful retreat. I love the gray, gold, and simple white linens mix. No harsh, distracting colors or patterns, just the kind of simple elegance that defies sleepless nights.

I hope you’re having an awesome day! I got my gift from work: an Android tablet. Not top of the line but it’s one more tablet than I had yesterday. I love IKEA! Until tomorrow!

Rustic Elegance

I am totally in love with gray right now and I’ve always been a fan of mixing luxe items with rustic or industrial pieces. So, today I bring you some of my favorite recent finds in gray, both industrial and luxurious.

Before & After: Mid-Century Dresser

Steph at Birdhouse did a fabulous DIY on a inexpensive, non-designer mid century modern dresser. She took it from shabby and worn to a blingy, mod superstar. Here’s how it started out:

After!

I love how she removed the fussy, dated gullwing pulls, went for the currently trés popular two tone look, and gave the front some kerpow with those classy ring pulls. All in all a great DIY makeover by Steph! Check out the post on her blog, Birdhouse,  for a complete breakdown of how she did it… in case you want to try it yourself.

Have a great Saturday!

Totally Inspiring Room

Today’s room is very blue (one of my favorite colors)! The controlled chaos and saturated colors are what appeal to me here. I like how you can tell that these books are read even though the owner has them organized rather prettily. The hits of white and cream make the layered blues and warm wood tones pop. Not sure who the room is by… if you know, drop me a line!

Hope you all are having a fabulous Thursday. 🙂
