OscarPRGirl’s Colorful Cottage

I was flipping through my Elle Decor last night when I was stopped dead in my tracks by a spread on one of fashion’s most popular social media stars, OscarPRGirl, also known as Erika Bearman.  Her Southampton home, designed by none other than Miles Redd, is quite an exercise in bold doses of color mixed with a heavy dose of white.

Speaking of bold- how about this high gloss green living room?

This entry slays me. Love the paper paired with the stripe ceiling!

A black and white bathroom speaks to my monochromatic sensibilities.

More my style- the kitchen with the black grouted subway tile and custom hood.

That polka dot tablecloth is so darn cute.

A pink and navy guest room any girl would love to stay in.

Although this one is more my speed in turquoise and yellow…. that floor is one bold choice.

The only space I’m not hot on is the master- it’s more the styling than anything else- those red accessories don’t work for me (and I’m 99.9% sure they were brought in for the shoot and not how the room looks everyday).  If it were me I would have added a woven seagrass bench or for something more bold a pair of white leather and chrome Barcelona ottomans at the foot of the bed.

The master bath certainly is more bold fun. Miles doesn’t do understated.

Simplicity.

I’ve been struggling a little with remaining house decisions as I keep questioning myself when it comes to color scheme. And by color scheme, I mean very little color and mostly black, white and gray. My gut keeps telling me to stick to these simple looks as our house is small and my brain is assaulted daily with color and pattern. But then I go on Pinterest and see so many rooms chock full of bold color and pattern that I feel maybe I’m making a mistake.

But there is nothing wrong with simple.  Interesting textures and details can make an otherwise monochrome home anything but boring.  I don’t need to make a statement in every room, I need my HOME to make a statement as a whole. And that statement might just be “simple”.

A Spring Tablescape

I’ve had this table scape in my head since posting it with my little soapbox piece about Gwyneth. Like her or hate her, this table setting is gorgeous! I love the casual but luxurious feel and I am straight up obsessed with those plates! I also have a major love for lilacs and have got to find somewhere to plant a lilac bush in my yard so I can cut them myself for my home. I can’t find them anywhere to buy cut bouquets of them (ok, I only checked Whole Foods…)

Here’s how to get the look yourself- and did I mention I seriously need these Juliska Country Estate plates. At least a set of dinner plates or salad plates to pair with my other china.  I loved the blue color paired with the violet but I added horn, gold and jute accents and may like it even more….

wood bottle stoppers // lanterns // salad servers // bowls // carafe // plate // napkin ring

placemat // gold flatware // napkins // s&p shakers // water glass // wine glass

I picture this not only in my dining room on my awesome table, but also in a room like this- a mix of natural, casual and GLAM!

The Coolest Bathroom EVER

…and it’s not even done yet.  If you want to lose an hour or two of your life then click on over to Gianetti Design’s blog to follow the progress of their truly UNBELIEVABLE new home Patina Farm.  It both inspires immensely and makes you feel really, really poor. At least that’s what it does to me.

I’ve been lurking on their site for years but this bathroom just knocked my socks off. I mean, LOOK at this shower/tub situation!

I can’t….even….

6a00e554d7b8278833019101a88bf5970c-800wi

WHY did I not do unlacquered brass everywhere? Now we know what my master bath fixtures will look like at least….

The sketch so you can see the overall plan.  I might feel a BIT vulnerable in a shower like that but then I’d do an unflattering shower cartwheel because LOOK AT THAT THING.

6a00e554d7b8278833017eeab36dba970d-800wi

Not to mention the other details of the house like all the iron framed doors and windows like this one in the kitchen….oh and do you even see that stove? That stove is probably more than my car. And I have a nice car. I feel I should bow down in front of it.

All the vintage door and beams? yeah, no biggie, right?

This is the “chicken coop kitchen”. Yup. First time in my life I have ever wished I was a chicken.

The guest house is just icing on this insane cake.

And the view of Ojai, California.  Oh the view.

Domaine

It’s always no great when a new site comes on the scene to inspire all of us, right?  So far the new interiors site from the girls behind WhoWhatWear called Domaine looks AWESOME. I love the layout and the content…. do I dare say Domino-esque meets Coveteur?

I am in LOOOOOVE with Katie Nehra’s apartment. Like, if I lived alone my place would probably look like this.

The flamingo heads aren’t quite my jam, but those pink walls are so fun!

Love those barstools. Love. Also proof that the English roll arm sofa is the most classic shape to blend with ANY style interior.

Such a great vignette.
