On the Hunt: Candy-Coated Chairs

Chairs are some of my favorite accent pieces for the home, and what better way to accent a forgotten corner than to add a splash of candy-coated color? I’ve been on the hunt for a vibrant industrial-inspired seat for a few weeks now, so I thought it might be fun to share my findings with you! Behold, six options for a happy fanny!:

1. Mint barstool ($300) at DWR
2. Turquoise kids’ chair (£74) at My Haus
3. Garden side chair ($67) at Home Decorator’s Collection
4. Spark lounge chair ($348) at DWR
5. Light blue vintage Tolix chair ($895) at ABC Home
6. Tolix perforated armchair ($156) at DWR

Happy shopping, friends!

Craving: Faux Tin Wallpaper

One of my favorite ceiling treatments has always been an aged tin, perfectly reminiscent of old farmhouses and industrial kitchens. Yet the job is quite painstaking, and if you’re not sold on the look, can become a huge pain to remove when you’re ready for a makeover a few years down the road.

Enter a genius solution: faux tin wallpaper from Rockett St. George. Simply adhere to the ceiling (or walls for a fresh and equally inspired look!) and watch your average space sky rocket into high style territory. Wouldn’t the look work so well in a modern loft, juxtaposed with minimalist decor and high ceilings?

I’m sold!

Decorating with Lockers

Too cool for school? Never. With the rise of industrial materials and today’s trendy nod to vintage metal, school lockers are showing up in some of my favorite homes to date. Let’s take a look, shall we?:

Above, a Scandinavian-inspired living space is the perfect backdrop for gray-blue aged lockers, providing both incredible storage and maximum style.

Why Don’t You…?

… transform a spare cabinet into additional shoe storage? Equal parts form and function (after all – who doesn’t want to showcase all of that gorgeous footwear?), a display cabinet is the perfect solution to a closet bursting at the seams.

What do you think? Would you display your shoes the same way you display your dishes? Or is the look a bit too industrial and cluttered for your taste?

A Perfect Home

Friends, I do believe I’ve found my perfect home:

From the consistent use of reclaimed wood to the minimalist concrete floors, I’ve fallen hard for this gorgeous Skona Hem home. What’s not to love about wide-planked white ceilings and the perfect blend of rustic and industrial?

Of course, the kitchen is indeed a sight in itself. A soothing, monochromatic color palette is the perfect background for architectural layouts and a singular art piece. (I also have an unhealthy obsession with that sweet little trash can.)

And if you’re not completely convinced that this home is worthy of applause, I present a tiny corner loft with natural light and optimal space planning.

What do you think, friends? Could you see yourself in this stark home?
