West Elm Multipixel Rug Love

I dropped by West Elm the other day and saw a sample of this rug. I love its textured "rag rug" feel and the color palette. It's definitely at the top of my list for bringing in colors, patterns, and textures into a space.  The third picture I think speaks to the vibrancy and coziness of the rug because as we all know, it's all about lighting, lighting, lighting.

Ellie Cashman Wallpaper

I am beyond obsessed with this floral wallpaper pattern by Ellie Cashman since the first moment I've laid eyes on it. Her work is inspired by floral paintings by the Dutch Masters. Our wedding cake was actually a nod to the Masters. The color palette is filled with cool tones and the balance between the muted white flowers and dramatic black background make me swoon. Wallpapering this in a formal dining room would be incredible. You can find the wallpaper here.

You can see how it was vividly inspired by Cornelis van Spaendonck's Still Life with Flowers, 1789

New Michael Hsu home

We recently purchased our dream home designed by one of our favorite local architects, Michael Hsu, and are in the process of customizing it. I've learned to appreciate all the hard work and detail that goes into building a home. Above is an illustration of all of the "modern farmhouse" row homes. I love the balance between the two and and can't wait to share my personal journey into interior design and decor on this blog
