Monday Inspiration: "For The Home"

When it comes to interior design I usually find myself drawn to a mix of masculine and feminine design aesthetics. I love the mix of dark woods, charcoal grey tones, and natural sculptural pieces like drift wood or antlers mixed with reflective surfaces, textural throws, metallic wallpaper, modern chandeliers, and floral arrangements.


My ideal color scheme: monochromatic neutrals, mixed with graphic patterns, textural fabrics, fur, and shots of color


I had to choose this image for the abstract painting, I loved all the watery blue hues and I plan on doing a series of these for my home.


This wallpaper and crawford ceiling is EVERYTHING to me and I love the balance that symmetry creates but its also fun to go for asymmetry when designing.


So in love with these dark floors, chandelier, modern screen and that huge pane of glass that lets in tons of light. Its my dream to have a house with large windows, I'm such a huge fan of natural light.
