So, I’m just going to admit that there’s no particular theme to today’s Interior Obsessions post. Except for the fact that they’re all pretty awesome. Is that a theme? I’m thinking that might be a theme.
Either way, I think you’ll enjoy these spaces. My absolute favorite is this first one, above (and that staircase below).
(above) Black and white with a little color.
How great is this kitchen? I really like that it’s filled to the brim with stuff. Sometimes, clutter is a good thing.
A workspace wall that is exploding with inspiration.
Love the blue antique stove in this interior. Has a great farmhouse feel.
And this is a fun one.
Which space is your favorite? Curious to know what style best suits your home.
This morning, I have butterflies in my stomach, from all the excitement…because today is the first full day of Meet/Make/Do activities. Chelsea, Kelly, and I got everything set up yesterday morning/ afternoon, and everyone started arriving mid-day. Then we headed out to dinner (which was delicious). I can’t wait to share the details from this event. For now though, you can follow along here. And on my Instagram. #meetmakebing
I was so looking forward to doing it all over again today, I woke up super early, like it was Christmas morning or something.
The vibe here is light, airy, and all kinds of calming/relaxing. So, I thought it would be appropriate to round up some of my favorite things right now that fit that description: light, airy, and completely calming…
What is inspiring you lately? Anything in particular that you’re absolutely loving?
This morning I’m feeling especially drawn to pattern. So I thought I would roundup some of my favorite ways to use pattern for this week’s Interior Obsessions…
(above) Everything that comes from Weekday Carnival is amazing. Including this geometric wall.
How great is this couch? And those pillows too.
Love the variation in colors and patterns in each cubby of this storage shelf.
This black and white tile floor is amazing.
Cool rug with a great pattern in this eclectic dining room.
Love the repetition of stripes in this cheerful bedroom.
And this wall pattern?! Yes.
Do you incorporate patterns into your decor at home?
I wanted to name this post ‘I ain’t afraid of no
ghost color’ but I can’t do a strikethrough on the title. So, let’s just pretend.
I think it goes without saying that I am a big fan of white interiors. White walls. White floors. White everything. BUT there is definitely something to be said for color as well. When I was in high school, I distinctly remember wanting to paint every room in my imaginary college apartment a different color. Which would have been utterly insane. But that’s what I wanted at the time. Man, how things have changed!
The only downside to color is that it’s much harder to get it ‘right’. I mean it’s easy to make things looks good when you have white walls (hello gallery), but color? That’s a whole lot more difficult, if you ask me.
Here are a handful of bold uses of color that are absolutely doing it right…
(above) I am in love with this turquoise wall.
Doesn’t that artwork look great on a royal blue backdrop like that? Never thought I would say that, but it’s true.
Lilac walls in a Seattle studio.
Salmon walls with that emerald green chair? Now, that is bold! And also, perfect.
And these jewel-toned, dark teal stairs are pretty great too.
So what do you think? Would you dare to try any of these colors on your walls (or stairs for that matter)?
I love natural wood, and my first instinct is always to create a wood wall that looks as natural as possible. But I’ve seen some great painted walls lately, and know that there are times when painting your slat or tongue-and-groove wall surface really is the right call. The great thing is that painting gives you a large range of options. From white beachy horizontal boards to a dark Japanese look with deep blacks, you can give your wood wall some personality.
Maybe you have wood walls and love the texture, but the color of the wood doesn’t go with the rest of your decor. Or perhaps you already have copious amounts of wood in your interior, and need to provide a little visual relief. Painting your wood wall might be just the ticket. Don’t forget great options like a warm grey, or even a color if you’re being a bit daring. Or try one of the new lookalike wallpapers! And if you don’t really want to cover all that natural grain, a stain or wash in a similar tone can be just as lovely.
Do you love wood, and can you stand to cover it up?
