Yup, Finally a Little Inspiration

We might as well just stop apologizing for our infrequent posts. We’re lucky enough to have all the work with some great clients right now, but it’s definitely draining all the energy we used to spend writing good posts. Sometimes we’re in a blur of furniture, paint and fabrics…a good blur it is, but nonetheless a blur! Amy and I always talk about how you have to be so careful that through the overwhelming number of choices out there, you don’t just default to your safe choices; that you challenge yourself to think about new ways of doing things. So, I love it when I come across another designer’s project that does exactly that–puts a spin on things and makes it special.

This Park Estates Residence by FLO Design Studio is like the perfect intersection of gorgeous glam and family-friendly fun.

The best part of the house might be the kids’ spaces though!

I imagine this little door goes to a secret closet hideaway made especially for two lucky little girls.

Best study for kids ever?

In this house every detail was considered. There’s not one wall (or one ceiling!) that you can point to that doesn’t have a plan or purpose and some special detail.

Home Feature: Neutral Beach House

It’s officially summer (and actually in any season) I tend to be attracted to brighter colors and patterns, but when I saw beach house in House Beautiful, I decided I might be a closet neutrals girl! This is just gorgeous inside and out.

So many good things about this room like how they balanced the fans with a large pendant, all the layers of lighting, different textures.

This door is so good.

This ceiling is gorgeous and despite its height feels so cozy thanks to the dark color. Love that they did this so your attention doesn’t go up to the ceiling, but rather out to the beautiful view.

What’s better than an outdoor shower? An outdoor shower for two!

Wouldn’t mind spending the summer at this place!

Friday Home Feature

I stumbled upon H2 Design + Build last weekend and couldn’t stop looking at some of their beautiful remodels.  I was dying over this modern farmhouse.

Love the simplicity of the exterior combined with such a lush landscape.

 One of the best things about the design in this house is the mix of modern and traditional furniture pieces.  It doesn’t get much better than a rustic wood table mixed with ghost chairs.  They’ve chose to add a little softness with some wingback upholstered chairs at the end.

 The lamp, wallpaper and the rug!  Perfect combination and I’m loving the deep blue couch.

 Another favorite kitchen with no upper cabinets along one wall.  Love the windows and simplicity.  I used the same hardware in my own kitchen.

Love the layout of this room and how the TV is not the focal point.  Great option for someone not wanting to mount it over the fireplace.

That door!  Love this architectural modern detail.

There’s something so calming about the all white farmhouse with lush, greenery and no pops of color.

Enjoy the weekend!
