“Romantic” and “industrial” aren’t typically two design styles that go together – but then again, I’m not your typical designer. I’m all about a quirky but livable mix of vintage and modern, rustic and polished, color and neutrals, masculine and feminine. Matchy-matchy is boring. Let’s have some fun!

This romantic industrial master bedroom moodboard was part of a Design Kit recently completed for a client and I’m digging the end result. The dusty blues and pinks are a little softer than my usual color palette of saturated jewel tones, but don’t worry – there’s still a badass edge with the edgy crank accent table and industrial drapery hardware.Throw in a Mid-Century mirror and Boho accent pillow on the bed and we’re totally in business. Too much of one look is never a good thing (hello, bad decorating catalogs) and it’s all about creating the right balance with different styles and eras. Check out all the details on this project’s Pinterest board.

Woohoo for a new project reveal!

I’m digging how this colorful Mid-Century Modern living room with a touch of French flair turned out. The main goal for this room was to keep the room true to the home’s 1960s architecture while incorporating French-traditional inspired decor that the homeowners love.

If that wasn’t enough of a challenge in itself, the space also needed to be toddler-proof. (Which, as the mom of a three year-old I’m basically an expert at. 😂)

By brightening up the ceiling beams, sourcing furniture that fit the scale of the room, and revamping the built-in, this room transformed from orange and dingy to light, bright, and totally livable.

Check out the before post of this space to see how a rad concept comes to life.

How lucky is the little girl that gets to play at this stylish marble table with adorable (and comfy) poufs surrounding it?

Sometimes (okay, ALL THE TIME),

a designer’s gotta get creative when styling a space.

This “tray” isn’t a tray at all – it’s a wall hanging that was the perfect size and style to offset the chunky white coffee table.

The details and scale of this piece were so made for this space, it ended up feeling like it was a custom-designed centerpiece.

Here’s the moodboard that inspired it all:

I loved sourcing items of such a large scale to give the furniture in this room the oomph it desperately needed.

Giving a sweet family the colorful and kid-proof space they deserve is all part of the job (which SO rocks).
