MY BEDROOM MAKEOVER

before
after

i’ve been waiting so long to post this! happy to finally get to show you guys the transformation of my bedroom. i brought in victoria from sfgirlbybay to help me on this project, because she is SO GOOD AT IT. really, she’s an interior queen and i knew our aesthetics were in line. i feel like i know how to decide on what i like and don’t like, or style a smaller vignette…but when it comes to putting a whole room together, it just wasn’t happening for me.

we never put much effort into this room when we moved in, we just put a bunch of random things from our old loft in it and let it be. the space just felt so unfinished compared to our living room, and i really wanted to create a relaxing and ADULT bedroom to fit the style of the rest of the house. victoria helped bring the whole vision to life and i could not be more grateful! ps. i know the before shots aren’t perfect, but it actually is pretty accurate of how the room looked most days.

9 KITCHENS I’D LIKE TO COOK IN…

the kitchen in my rental house isn’t really my style. but that’s cool, i can still dream about what my future kitchen will look like. i’m not really in a rush to buy a house…but someday! which one is your kitchen style??

a single girl’s kitchen dreams come true. pastels + tile…

i’ve pinned this kitchen on 5 different occasions on accident. i’m obsessed!…

oh i can SERIOUSLY get down with this one…those chairs, that light…

these bar stools sure make a statement…

all white + color. yeah, count me in on this one

on a fancier note…and pretty unique with the bench, right?…

love the garden vibe happening here

this is just pleasing to my eyes…

an all time favorite kitchen shot…

happy friday! -bri

STUDIO WALLS

my studio is coming together slowly but surely. i wanted to take my time with the decorating process, searching for pieces i really loved and that felt like me. i knew that i would be spending a significant amount of time in the space and wanted it to be inspiring, functional and relaxing at the same time. i am keeping the “sitting area” really simple because we often move around the furniture for shoots, but i did think a piece of art over the couch would be nice.

shop items seen above: pink couch by cb2, polkadot rug from ikea, white pendant lights from barn light electric, wooden side table from lulu and georgia, black and white stool from finn style, fuzzy pillows from west elm, triangle pillow from caroline hurley.

i found a couple of pieces of art from artfully walls to use around the office (especially love the painted pebbles above by garima dhawan).

the one above is by eva magill-oliver. love those natural frames too!

i debated between doing a single piece or a gallery wall above the couch (i really like both!!) but ultimately, i felt like the gallery wall would be harder to remove if we needed that wall for a shoot. sometimes functionality wins, right? i’m really happy with the britt turner piece i chose. her work has been a favorite of mine for a while. artfully walls has a cool feature on their site where you can try the art on your actual wall which helps in making these decisions for your home.

which is your preference over the couch? single piece or gallery wall?

shop this gallery wall: hora, woman, round and round, and navy geo.
