ES8: floral sofa meets modern farmhouse

ES8: floral sofa meets modern farmhouse

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!?

ES5: Transitional Living Room

ES5: Transitional Living Room

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.

ES1: bohemian bedroom design

ES1: bohemian bedroom design

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.
