ONE ROOM CHALLENGE: JULIA’S ROOM REVEAL

May 11, 2017

Decorating / One Room Challenge

Blue and green bedroom makeover with tufted headboard on Thou Swell @thouswellblog

DESIGN | TEXTILES | ARTWORK | STYLING

Week six – the big reveal – is finally here! Usually, the One Room Challenge season totally flies by, but this year definitely felt different since most of the project was done remotely. A HUGE thank you to my mom and little sister who unpacked all the deliveries, helped me set up the room over spring break, and thank you to my little sister for putting up with me while I Facetimed the photoshoot! She did a wonderful job on these photos, as you’ll see below… Back to the project, you’ll remember from my introduction that I tackled my older sister’s bedroom at my mom’s house. She’s a Junior in college now and it was about time to upgrade her room from a twin bed to a queen, and bring in an adult design and efficient layout for a serene retreat when she gets home! I settled on a green, blue and gold palette with some fabulous upgrades to the room from some of my favorite brands. Jump down below to get all the details on the space!

SWELL SEASONAL: SPRING HOME DECOR EDIT

May 9, 2017

Decorating

There’s nothing like the signs of spring to inspire redecorating – nature has its own way of redecorating too, with a bright new palette of fresh green leaves and pastel blooms. I’m embracing these colors with my third home decor edit, a collection of the best in new furniture, decor, and tableware. My fall and winter edits leaned towards more muted colors, so it was fun to bring in more saturation and floral motifs in this season’s selection. I also used the fresh color palette to include more traditional silhouettes in unexpected hues. As usual, I pulled from a variety of styles and sources in accent furnishings to inspire the smaller scale redecorating that can be changed up from season to season. Shop the edit below, and let me know what you’re eyeing to refresh your home for spring!

LONDON HOME WITH A LUSH TERRACE

May 8, 2017

Interiors

(via Rue Magazine, photography by Nathalie Priem)

This London home is the merger of two separate duplexes, carried out by Bertolini Architects to create a single residence connected to the incredible garden in the backyard. With such a private escape from the surrounding city, the verdant terrace becomes the focal point of this home, with minimal decor keeping things simple indoors. The home also uses a predominately white palette to carry the light from the front of the home to the back, especially in the basement which is partly underground but includes access to a lower patio in the backyard. By carving out a garden entrance for the basement, the renovation allows for more garden views and extra light to flow through the bottom floor of the home. Take a full tour after the jump.
