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.

EARLY BIRTHDAY PRESENT

29686797_023_b

i love terrain’s simple aesthetic. there’s something so relaxing about the items in their shop. they remind me of a backyard dinner party under string lights with friends. here’s a few items i decided to splurge on as an early birthday present to myself. i guess you know you’re getting older when a marble tray is pretty much the best thing ever.

i’ll be turning 28 next week and i decided to keep it very low key this year. i’m going to dinner with a few friends here. i’ve been switching back and forth between fun party & intimate dinner each year and it’s nice. birthday parties can be great and all, but they can also be a lot of work! (here’s mine from last year)

some of the items i love: marble & wood cheese board, washed linen tablecloth, ceramic pasta bowls, wildflower bubble bath, two-toned tumblers

FAVORITE WALLPAPERS RIGHT NOW

a good friend of mine asked me to give her some of my favorite resources for wallpaper. she’s wanting to cover the entryway in her new home with something fun. i thought i’d share with you too…

  

cavern is the wallpaper that is used in my studio building, the unique space. (that’s our hallway to the bathrooms right above) they have a great selection of cool wallpapers here.

hygge & west’s selection is filled with gold, which i love. i chose the dots & the ferns as my top picks.

ellie cashman sure has some bold statement wallpaper in her collection. i think these large florals are so rad in that work area!

what do you think of bodie and fou’s faux wood & concrete wallpaper options? i’m curious to see those in person.

oh man i love these watercolor designs by emma hayes! very cool.

 

can’t go wrong with a vertical black and white stripe. ferm living as a great one here. the half moons are nice too. i also added some of their wall stickers in for fun. shop those here.

anthropologie has sea scapes & vivid poppies! can you imagine a bathroom with those bright flowers? i’d be into that for sure.

speaking of the sea, how about these hand drawn waves wallpaper by abigail edwards? i could see this being very cute in a little boy’s room.

for the neutral gal, i chose these graphic options in a bone color from serena & lily.

and last but not least, minakani lab. gorgeous wallpaper made in paris. that black and white option of the trees is so calming, i love it.

which one are you loving? any other wallpaper stores you want to share? -bri
