ES9: Glam Living Room

Happy Friday! Today’s moodboard is all about the glam. Check out this sumptuous navy velvet sofa, cozy Mongolian sheepskin, pretty sconces, and delicate coffee tables. I love my hubs but if I lived alone, I’d be going all out girl glam in the living room. Some serious grown up cocktail could be served in here. Sheepskin, rug, and skull from Apple & Oak!

Farmhouse + Floral Sofa  

Confession time: I find that I am drawn 99% of the time to solids on upholstery (there are many good reasons I do this, feel free to DM me if you want deets on this preference) so I wanted to challenge myself to incorporate a floral print sofa from Apple and Oak’s inventory. Here’s what I would do to make the sofa at home: don’t try to compete with the print; neutralize everything else! Creamy knits and linen upholstery, a cotton rug in blush tones, a cozy blanket, and a whitewashed plank wall complement the strong floral. Bring in wood tones to "talk to" the sofa frame. A great transitional oversized lantern in wrought iron crowns the space. So how do you think I did!?

Boho Dining Room 
Apple and Oak’s Madison rug is the star of the show in our moodboard today. Let your inner hippie reign with gem art, wicker chairs in a modern shape, a (must-have) cactus and mid-century modern inspired planter, and a crystal chandelier to lend a dash of polish. Pairs of chairs, stools, and art create balance and harmony and similar wood tones throughout the space create cohesion. I don’t know about you but I would really love the fictional person who lives here to read my palm and tell me I’m going to be a multi-millionaire so I can save all the rescue animals in the world.

ES6: Uncommon Color Combo Dining Room

ES6: Uncommon Color Combo Dining Room

Dining Room Inspiration by Elizabeth Stanton 
An unexpected color combination is one of my favorite ways to infuse personality and character in a space. Peachy melon, olive green, and dusty blue work here for a couple of reasons. One: these colors are all in the same tonal family. Saturated colors like to be with other saturated colors. Muted colors work beautifully with other muted colors. Two: there is a balance of cool and warm tones. The blue, silver, minty green, and gray of the weathered wood are countered by the warmth of the peaches and pinks of the artwork, the copper mugs, and even the olive green rug. I hope these tips give you courage to create some uncommon color combinations in your own life, whether it be in your decor or wardrobe. Find the rug, green ceramic planter, and the bar cart Apple & Oak .

Transitional Living Room 
Today’s moodboard is a lesson in neutrals, just the right amount of black, and punches of color to keep things interesting. My favorite rooms are just a little bit off; “What’s that edgy neon infused art doing in this otherwise transitional space?" I’ll tell you what’s it doing, it’s TELLING A STORY. You are not a neutral person, are you? You have embarrassing moments where you rose above by laughing at yourself. You have interests that nobody else - not even your mom- gets. You have a wild hair that sometimes manifests as spontaneous dance parties. You’re not vanilla so don’t let your rooms be vanilla. Remember, your quirky focal point, like this neon art, shines best when the rest of the room is a bit subdued. And never underestimate the power of just a little bit of black in any room. Find the floor lamp, beautiful rug, gold and white pillows at Apple & Oak. Find the insane agate art print by my art crush #kristikohut. See below for all sources and links.

Sophisticated Kid’s Room 
Make your child’s room part of your home by extending your home’s color palette there too. You can easily say “a child lives here” without using pastels or primary colors. Your child’s room should be a space you (the adults!) enjoy spending time in as well. Use accessories to bring in whimsy and color and let the big pieces be just as sophisticated (but still 100% baby safe!) as the rest of your home. Here we’ve used some non-baby-friendly accessories (hello, concrete planter!) so use your discretion when deciding when those pieces will have to be moved up and out of reach for little ones. Natural textures, classics like black and white, and a great timeless color like navy blue round out the space. Grab the fun happy camper print, set of three lidded boxes, the black and white rug, concrete planter, East Nash pennant, and glass mosaic pendant light at Apple and Oak.

Girl Boss Office Inspiration by Elizabeth Stanton 

When it comes to making a home office, turn to what inspires you! Surround yourself with art that intrigues, plants for fresh oxygen, and functional pieces like this lucite wall calendar and gold waste basket, that are downright glamorous. Consider a bar height table so that when you are sick of sitting, the switch to standing is a cinch. Here, the age-old pattern of a Turkish rug reads like a neutral. Add color and sparkle and build a work life that you won’t need a vacation from! Find the stool, rug, lamp, sassy colorful pencils, and the amethyst moon art at Apple & Oak (hey, that's us)!

Maine Cabin Inspiration 

Brrr! Fight off the chill and cozy up in this Maine-cabin-inspired room! Start by layering a vintage hand knotted Turkish kilim in neutral tones for a subtle feminine touch. Bedeck your walls with a deeply hued American flag, vintage macrame, and 1767 reclaimed wood artwork. Be sure to clearly label the bar so you can find it through the hot toddy haze. A wooly Joanna Gaines striped blanket and neutral but textured throw pillow scream "cozy." Don't forget a flannel to complete the look. #cozyAF

This romantic, bohemian bedroom design was inspired by the feminine muted colors found in the rug, a vintage hand-knotted Turkish kilim named Pearl. Find Pearl along with the lavender velvet pillow in the shop. Layer Pearl (4’4”x7’6”) on top of a large sisal to work in a large bedroom like this one. A rattan sleigh bed with an indigo kantha blanket folded at the foot establishes a quirky laid back vibe while the crystal chandelier lends polish and sophistication. You’ll need a place to set the prettiest drinking glass ever and a collapsible leather stool by the bed is just the thing. Don’t forget greenery which enlivens any space; an indoor citrus tree smells amazing and looks beautiful.
