Monochromatic Magic

I have made the executive decision that most of my house (the main living level, anyways) will be only done in black, white, tan, grey, wood tones and brass.  This is pretty much the polar opposite of how I’ve decorated my past spaces but I feel like I’m in a different place mentally and spatially.  Our house is TINY.  It doesn’t look tiny from the outside but it is. And the ceilings are pretty low.  So the light grey walls, white trim and soon to be dark floors really help make it feel bigger.  I am constantly stimulated by color during the day while working on other homes so I really want my new space to feel calm and serene.  And it’s as if the people at Lonny read my MIND with their new issue because so many of the spaces they featured were exactly the palette I’m working with!

The Copenhagen house of the couple behind the fashion label Day Birger et Mikkelsen has me writhing in delight. It’s pretty much my perfect space (if you add a dash of leopard or zebra somewhere). This living room is proof that warm and cool neutrals can live a very happy life together.

I mean seriously? Can I please live here?

OH! There is some zebra! See, it is perfect (well, I’d add a smidge of art tot he walls in this room)

I’ve just passed out from looking at this bathroom. Can you even believe that tub? However, I could never shower in the open like that. It would be a little wierd to be showering right next to Andrew brushing his teeth.

This is what heaven looks like. Except in my version there is a TV with The Notebook on repeat in there too.

This stylin’ studio apartment they also feature is like a smaller scale version of the house above.

SUCH a stylish little darling!

A desk under a desk? Genius.

I am straight up obsessed with Haven’s Kitchen, also featured. A cooking school meets coffee shop meets foodie pantry meets event space? It’s to die for gorgeous! I must go my next trip to NYC!

And this is a public service announcement for my husband: THIS CLUTCH FOR CHRISTMAS. MY CHRISTMAS SPIRIT DEPENDS ON IT.
