Design Collaboration Challenge: Aqua, Salmon & Mint

Design Collaboration Challenge: Aqua, Salmon & Mint

Sarah from This Sarah Loves switched up our inspiration source this month by picking this scarf, which I would buy in a heartbeat if it wasn’t sold out already! The colour combo gave me an excuse to design a room around a sofa that I’ve been lusting after for a long time, and since it would be a totally self-indulgent buy (can’t see J going for it, and it definitely isn’t kid-friendly), I decided to go the whole hog and make myself a dream office.

Eleanor’s Loft Nursery: Mood Board to Real Room

I love seeing how mood boards and design plans come to fruition, and Eleanor’s loft nursery came a long way from my original design. REVISION 1 I started working on it while I was pregnant, and I was so excited about having a girl. I went all-out girly girl – ruffles included! The fabric had me at hello when I saw it in Emily’s gorgeous nursery. I went through a couple of different variations on the theme, trying to use what we had and keep it budget friendly.

Design Collaboration Challenge: A Coral & Navy Dining Room

Design Collaboration Challenge: A Coral & Navy Dining Room

Every month I join a group of bloggers and we all create a mood board based on one inspiration photo. This month, it was my pick and I (probably rather predictably) chose a navy, coral and gold theme. It’s so yummy, right? I seriously love what everyone came up with month. I didn’t get to spend as much time on mine as I wanted to, but I managed to pull together a “rustic glam” dining room, or that’s what I’m calling it at least. I stuck with renter-friendly white walls,… View Post

August Inspiration Board Challenge: A Lavender & Emerald Living Room

Last month I joined a group of bloggers in a monthly inspiration design board challenge. We each create a design board based on the same inspiration photo, and it’s so fun to see all the different takes on it. This month, Jessica chose this pretty starting point: I decided to do a very renter-friendly living room – white walls with lavender accents and, mainly because I freaking love this sofa, a big splash of emerald green.
