WEEKEND AT HOME / 115

i tend to get a little too obsessed with color from time to time, and find myself wanting to scale back to a space that is completely neutral: only birch wood, white walls, and jute rugs. there’s something that feels so peaceful about having no color in a space, and a minimal, distraction-free space sounds like a dream to me. i talked about adding more natural elements into a space here, and having an all-white bedroom here, so i’d love to combine those two concepts with things like light wood flooring, rattan light fixtures, baskets made of natural elements. these photos have me dreaming of what it would be like to be 100% light-toned natural elements. what do you think of this look? click through to get inspired with me below! erika

HOTEL TONIGHT

hotel tonight | designlovefest

i recently stayed at the proper hotel in san franscisco, designed by kelly wearstler. i was extremely impressed and inspired by her design choices. i booked the hotel through one of my favorite apps, hotel tonight. i really like using their app and was thrilled when they asked if i wanted to work together as i use them all the time (did you know you can now book up to 100 days in advance!) i love staying at unique, design focused hotels when i travel to get inspiration for either a project i’m working on for the blog or something at home. i’ve been working on finishing up the interior at my house and so i’m always checking things out when i go someplace new. the app is also great for last minute trips, when justin and i were in europe we randomly decided we wanted to go to Amsterdam and i booked the Hoxton (which is a really cool spot!) on the app and we flew there the next day, such a fun spontaneous trip!

i love how there were so many mixed patterns and textures everywhere. i actually felt excited by all of the unexpected details throughout the space. the perfect velvet couches, retro vintage rugs, art deco style furniture, amazing art curation, unique lighting…it was really inspiring! and don’t forget to check out the rooftop bar for even more design ideas. this space has definitely encouraged me to take more risks with colors and patterns in my own home, and proven again that kelly wearstler is SO talented.

i took some notes in my head on some design elements that inspired me during my stay…

inspired by all the fun design elements at the proper, i came back and added a velvet chair with an animal print throw here in my living room. i love how cozy and laid back it makes the space feel now and has an unexpected touch. i’ve been with a designer, tiffany, on finishing the living room and she’s doing a great job making the room feel feminine and masculine, unique, and most of all it has personality! (more on those room resources soon!) i’ve been slowly designing each room with more thought over the past few years. next up is my bedroom…

my bedroom has been a place where i’ve played it very safe. mostly out of laziness, time, and the fact that it’s totally fine the way it is. bright, airy, easy. but i would love to add more visual interest to the bedroom and have the decor be a little more intentional and sophisticated. i think it would be really cool to add a patterned couch or chair to the window and create a separate space there. i would love to add some fun pillows or a quilt on the bed that made a statement. maybe instead of a chair or couch it would be cool to have a desk area by the window like this?

i really admire how kelly seamlessly integrates many different periods of furniture into her rooms. it’s always the perfect mixture. i will be keeping that in mind as i work on my bedroom.

i always love when traveling brings new inspiration, and this definitely did that for me this time. it’s fun to do a solo trip from time to time too, i booked this with really no agenda and no travel companion and it ended up being a really inspiring time at a beautiful property. highly recommend the proper hotel and hotel tonight!

WEEKEND AT HOME / 110

while i usually opt for brighter colors, there’s something sleek and modern about black. for so long i’ve associated black with cheap dorm room furniture, but when it’s done right, like contrasted against a bright white, black can make a neutrally bold look. there are so many ways to incorporate this dark hue into a spacea pendant light, a piece of furniture, or even an accent wall. personally i love a black and white bathroom or kitchen. what do you think about a bit of black? add a pop of black to your home this weekend!erika

WEEKEND AT HOME / 105

plants in the home have been trendy for a while now, and this trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. greenery is still one of my favorite home accessories: they’re affordable, versatile, and can be swapped out easily. whatever vibe you’re looking for there’s a plant for your space. aloe is my favorite for a rustic southwest vibe, and i love palms in just about any room. if you have a hard time keeping plants alive, a rubber tree plant is a great easy option. what are your favorite indoor plants? erika

STRAW HATS!

i have an unending love for straw hats but have the hardest time storing them properly to keep them accessible but also keep them from getting crushed/losing their shape. i have a small closet and i’m on a never ending cycle of trying to find a way to make it reasonably organized. currently, i’m massively failing at keeping any kind of order but i love the idea of using my straw hats/bags as a focal point in the entry way or bedroom. when they are all tonal it looks so pretty and very practical for someone like me who owns too many and likes them within arms reach! i love the second image below that’s by our friend Tessa Neustadt of her entry way, so simple and pretty!
