recreate it.

[original sources can be found here]

I am so inspired by these images for our combined living/dining space. The kind of earthy-bohemian-eclectic-warm feel; that's what I'm after. I'm loving all things natural: hanging light bulbs, tribal patterns, wood and metallic accents, and all things white of course. Clean and crisp, but still colorful without being overwhelming. That's the goal, right?

Below is how I may attempt to get it done.

1) industrial elements like this ikea shelf // 2) living things like spider plants - check, got two of 'em. // 3) a personalized photo & artwork cluster - ours always feels like a work in progess. // 4) ikea ORGEL pendant lamp shade - check. // 5) mismatched chairs - check, but they desparately need to be painted some neutral color (right now two are red and two are blue. yikes!) // 6) a cozy wicker chair by the windows - check. // 7) side table doubling as magazine rack via urban outfitters // 8) farm table - check. // 9) a colorful southwestern-y rug (if Will will have it - he's not a huge fan) // 10) ikea RENS sheepskin is a must. I currently want in every room of the house. // 11) two gray couches - check. Does it count if one of them is actually red but is covered with extra gray bed sheets? The quest for a nice gray slipcover continues. // 12) more tribal patterned rugs // 13) earthy elements like this sweet tree stump side table - can totally make one. // 14) a vintage-y brass floor lamp, along with other metallic accents (loving copper right now!)

We decided to work on one room of the house each month to get it up to snuff and fully moved into, and January's focus was the kitchen. We're still working on finishing touches, but I'll share photos and inspiration when it's done!


  1. White walls & wood accents is my favorite! Love these inspirations!! And all of your picks are really great!

  2. Thanks Sarah! Doesn't surprise me that we're like-minded :)

  3. I love white with pops of colour. It's my favourite way to decorate!

  4. I wish I had talent when it comes to interior decorating.... my house needs help haha. Love this style.

  5. this is so great.

    obviously we should just live in the same house ;)

    but, Cas, I am seriously loving that farm table... and the giant shelf. and the stump table. and the rugs. The rugs will win Will over eventually. I can tell.

    loove you. glad you are continue to settle in (I mean, kind of. not glad you live light years away).

  6. You have such good taste! That is a great look, and your picks are perfect for the job! New follower here :)
