Back in August I got to give my little sister’s bedroom workspace a little refresh with some new prints from Framebridge, including an art print from painter Jessica Brilli. I started out the project with her Red Zenith radio print, with a bright red and blue palette that inspired the rest of the space. I printed complementary pieces with Framebridge’s Bali and Jambi frames, and chose a mix of red and aqua desk accessories to bring out the hues from the painting. Grace’s desk lamp turned out to be the perfect color (shop a similar piece here), and the colors popped on the white and gold DIY desk. This vignette was featured on the Framebridge blog along with four other artists and designer’s spaces featuring Jessica Brilli art. Click below to see all of the spaces!

THE YEAR OF THE DAYBED

Although I’m late to the game sharing this roundup, I didn’t want to miss the chance to jump on the daybed train, as it’s been one of the biggest home decor trends I’ve watched explode this over the course of this year. Daybeds are hitting it big this year for many reasons – not only are they being styled as simple settee’s in hallways and entries, but they’re making versatile statements in living room and nurseries, as pieces that can easily transition between sitting and sleeping. Daybeds without backs look great styled against walls or as low-profile benches in living areas, while traditional daybeds with backs are perfect for a porch, sunroom, or guest room. They also work well in a library setting, to make it easy to transition to an extra bedroom. I’ve always wanted to work in a daybed into one of my projects, and I may have an idea I can start working on this fall. There are tons of styles on the market now, from traditional velvet pieces to mid-century profiles and even a pretty canopy bed from Anthropologie that I think would make a stunning statement.

The chic living room of Chicago-based designer Megan Winters uses a timeless black and white palette, punctuated by gold accents and layered textures for a full look. The combination of cowhide and jute rugs form a cozy foundation for the room, while a small-scale black and white stripe is repeated on the armchairs and window shades for a hint of pattern. On the left armchair and the sofa cushions, dark brown adds another warm accent to the room, adding depth to the stark palette. See the rest of the designer’s home on Elle Decor, full of chic and energetic black and white spaces, and shop this room’s style after the jump.

The open-air design of this eclectic home in Spain feels unique and expressive. From the mix of styles (that I often find in Spanish home tours) to the mix of period architecture and a loft-like floor plan, the space is full of interesting contrasts. This home feels like a last hurrah to summer breezes, especially with the coastal vibes of the dining area. I love the wicker dining chairs and the woven pendant light combination. The kitchen also has a fresh, rustic-modern look with open shelving, all-white finishes and wicker counter stools. Continue reading to see the rest of the home!

While we may no longer have to put away our white jeans after Labor Day, it’s still the unofficial start to Fall and I’m excited about the cooler temperatures the autumn breeze is bringing my way, even if it means the countdown to my first Ithaca winter (brrrr)! I can’t do much furniture and decor shopping here in college, but I do hope I can live vicariously through my readers to enjoy the slew of Labor Day sales happening this weekend for some of my favorite brands. Make sure to peruse the upholstery sale happening at Crate & Barrel (which continues past this weekend), and the tiered savings at all the Williams-Sonoma group brands. While I picking favorites from west elm’s site, I was reminded of the quiet introduction of their luxe Collection items, which are all absolutely stunning. Find all the sales and my favorite pieces after the jump!
