Sneak Peek Perfection

Did you guys see this fabulous sneak peek on Design Sponge yesterday? If not, pop over and take a look.  It’s the studio/home of Susan and William Brinson in NYC. He’s a photographer and uses the space to shoot so some of it is very bare bones and open, but the details that are there are amazing.  It’s such a fabulous mix of vintage, collections, modern and DIY you can’t help but feel the bohemian creativity just oozing out of each room!

My favorite is the bedroom- that yellow duvet, those WINDOWS, the gorgeous deep blue lamp, the antique furniture… I just love it!

I cannot get over this 100 light DIY chandelier they crafted themselves. It is GORGEOUS. Plus the gallery wall set off by the black wall color is simply divine.  Black walls are my new favorite thing in the world. Next to puppies. And Twilight.

Yet again, an argument for black walls. The knives look like art when against it!

Here are some items that remind me of this space, so you could get the look on your own:

The Dwell Peacock Citrine duvet set. I am OBSESSED with this bedding.

A double headboard like this one from Wisteria.

Paintable embossed wallpaper, just like they used (and try my new favorite black paint, Martha Stewart’s Florence)

The Edison chandelier from PB isn’t quite a rockin’ as their insane DIY one above, but it gives you that industrial look of exposed bulbs!

These vintage style suitcases from Target are great for those who don’t feel like scouring flea markets and eBay for a set.
