Last time John Legend’s home looked like this. Now it looks like this. Photographer William Waldron captured their New York apartment. First,I love them as a couple. Chrissy is so pretty, funny and down to earth and the homes glamorous yet relaxed aesthetic is exactly what I would expect of them. I really love the piano room but you will have to see that over on Architectural Digest. For me, a room looks expensive and grand when there are large pieces of artwork adorning the walls…
I prefer a lower bed. To me this is the definition of bedroom comfort….
When I saw this on Pinterest, I knew I had to make this a Tiny Tot Thursday post. The parents didn’t want to move when they found out they were expecting. Instead, they got out their thinking caps and made some creative choices that can benefit anyone.
The hanging bassinet is quite genius and visually pretty amongst the exposed brick wall. The parents used the height of the ceiling to their benefit by working up and using vertical wall space for storage. It’s something I suggested in a closet storage post you can read about here.
I love the numbered bins on the floating shelves. They also raised their bed to be able to utilize underbed space more efficiently. You can see the rest of the details and more pics here.
A monochromatical gray color scheme doesn’t have to be boring as long as you layer, add textures, and bring in bold furniture and decor pieces. The seating above is truly a work of art. A modern chair combined with a rustic tree stump side table is an unexpected pairing but it all works in the space. That is another way you can keep things interesting in a muted palette.
With color inspiration from the 70s and a marriage of design styles, this home tour encompasses a lot of things I look for when featuring on my blog. I like a home to have some character and architectural detail. Brany’s has just that in the molding designs on the doors, beautiful wood floors and exposed brick. I like a home to look personal as if every item was edited and bought or salvaged from a place with background, history and meaning. Brandy’s home has just that. It mixes new and old and balances nicely throughout the entire space. What I saw first was that wild bold wallpaper and a gold mirror then the open riser stair case with a neon light and I knew this would be a fun home tour. Every room was interesting and the spaces that felt a little empty will probably be filled with another conversation starter soon. It just looks fun, like everything she bought, was bought because she simply liked it. Not because she needed to finish a room in time for an online feature or not as if she needed to be like everyone else and buy the same print, same tables, same rugs. Brandy’s home looks like Brandy. One of her fav sites to score items from is Chairish which is also where she sells decor through. You can buy her style at Make & Model. It’s nice to see someone that doesn’t stick with a formula of what they think is “cool”.
Take a cue from this and use expensive or bold wallpaper in a very small width of space. You won’t break the bank but you will make an impact.
Two chairs similar in style (both armless) and the same color can work just as well as a pair. I love the barstools and lighting.
Decorating with busts and mannequins are my everything. I like how the vignette is asymmetrical but still balanced because the mannequin is around the same height as the lamp.
I mean…listen…this is so incredibly stunning. My fav takeaways: all of it the black walls and molding which gives an element of history and character, the faux white fireplace mantle with ornate details and the warmth by tall candles, the canopy bed without the drapery, the mantle layering, the luxe bedding and the window treatments & the black, gold and white color palette is all so beautiful, timeless and regal. Can you believe it was all done in 6 weeks? If you’re a follower of many popular blogs you will know today is the room reveals that designers were challenged with. It’s been fun reading and following everyone’s weekly progress and although this is the first one I saw, I am convinced it will be my fav. Job well done The Design Daredevil. Job well done. Below are some other fav images but you really have to check the site out for way more pics and all of the details.
A lot goes into dressing the windows and this mix of panels with patterned roman shades are beautiful. The shades allow both privacy and light….
