Each week, I save a catalog of beautiful homes and rooms I come across. I like to use Sunday to reflect back on what I loved and how i can implement it into any of my own projects. 

There is so much talent out there! Which one of these is your favorite? 

SO COZY.

Don’t you want to curl up in this space with a sherpa blanket, a cup of coffee and a good book? Shared by @traditionalhome. Photo by @wrsphoto.

livable.

The thing that struck me about this photo is how it’s beautifully designed and has an elevated designer look, but it’s so livable. I could see my kids jumping on that sofa without ruining everything. By @lightanddwell

chasing waterfalls.

I love a waterfall island and this one kills it. One of my biggest design pet peeves is an island with a floating counter. See how nice it looks all boxed in? Gorgeous. Shared by @hayessignature homes. Design by @jtdesigneye. Photo by @costachristmedia. Architect @john_lively_associates.

PEEK-A-BOO.

Can you believe the laundry room is hiding in that beautiful molding? This is genius, functional design. This would be ideal for adding laundry to a closet or pass-through area. Also loving that paint color. Design by @jeanstofferdesign. Photo by @stofferphotographyinteriors. Shared by @mmlighting.

 

SHOWSTOPPER.

There are hardly words for this kitchen It is so unexpected with the moody monochromatic palette and those ginormous lights. Such a bold design choice that absolutely kills it. I die over this whole situation. If ever there were a case study for bold design choices, this is it. Project collaboration with @ericolsendesign, @buzzellstudios, @raili_ca_design and @krsdevelopmentinc.

I LIKE BIG LIGHTS AND I CANNOT LIE.

Continuing with the big light trend, check this out. While this space leans more modern than my typical aesthetic, I love the unexpected use of this large sconce bedside. The lesson here is to think outside the box. This might actually be a ceiling fixture but flipped on it’s side and wall-mounted, it has such an impact. Shared by @em_henderson.

white peaks.

This modern tudor stopped me in my tracks. I love the white, the over-grouted stone and sharp peaks. Shared by @ansleyatlanta. Design by @christopherai. P.S. This architect turned some of his elevations into coloring pages. Perfect way to pass the time on a cold winter day. Download them here.
