Things I’m Loving

Because I am sure it’ll be fun to look back years from now and see how my taste has changed, I thought I’d make a list of some of the design-related things I’m in love with right now. 

1. This living room by Jimmy Stanton in Atlanta Homes Magazine

Yes, do click the link, because the whole house is pretty nifty. Lots of Belgian-y inspirations like linen slipcovers, warm colors (think burnt mocha, graphite, and deep cream, and driftwood), natural fibers (rugs, curtains, fabrics), stone galore, bleached woods, and over-sized statement lighting. 

 

2. Tennessee Wall Art

TennesseeWoodIIIFound at The Old Try, a printmaking company that’s closed on Sundays, even online. 🙂 

3. This. Just all of it. 

74cdea8248e59dae8ac95e99fba45d34Found at Better Homes and Gardens. Can’t you picture it decorated for any season? 

4. Everything about this dining space.586552b4289b45990f37967137443f7a

Love the found chairs unified with a common paint color, the well-worn drawer, the faux grain-sack-stripe armchair, the vintage Red Cross poster, the industrial-style lighting, and best of all, Old Glory. The source is from this foreign website, but I wasn’t able to find the actual original. 

5. I love the details on this slipcover. I’d love to have the skill to make something like it someday! 

Living_Room_after_6I found it on the website (of a talented designer) that, fair warning, has a name featuring a not-so-nice word. Don’t click on it if language bothers you. Here it is

6. This generic example of the kitchen design I love no matter what. 

 

c7dcefe0e0c2099113a1a871cb8519a7Here’s an easy recipe for a kitchen I’ll love for sure: Bead board on the ceiling; white, navy, natural, or gray cabinets, always shaker-style and flush mount, sometimes mixed with open shelving; corbels a-plenty; a bead board or subway tile backsplash; concrete, carrera marble (honed), soapstone, or butcher block counters; simple nickel or bronze pulls, an apron-front sink placed beneath a window (with or without a skirt); and warm, wood floors (not the super-trendy, nearly-black, wide-plank, hands-scraped look, though). 

7. So many bathrooms…

12. Salvaged architecture as artwork.

13. Impressionist artwork. I know this particular love is life long.

Sundown in Spring, Kellie Castle by John Henry Lorimer, found here on the BBC’s website

14. Ethereal abstract artwork, like this piece by Sarah Otts

Go look at her website right here. In her About Me section, she writes, “My paintings are an illustration of my restless enthusiasm to make the most of every moment of each day.” Happy sigh.
