I’m so pleased with how this design turned out! It’s giving you comfort but it is oh so stylish! The wallpaper is @matthewwilliamson. The wall lights are @bhs_uk @bhs_pr. The cushions are @harlequinfw and @johnlewisretail. The sofas are from Fabb Sofas! @dfs. The paint is @farrowandball Purbeck stone. And there are some items from the amazing @homesense_ukie in there too!
Happy Tuesday! ✨
While you’ve got glimpse of them many times I’ve yet to specifically talk about our wall of vintage book plates.
In the past I’ve recommended using vintage bookplates as affordable wall decor. Had yet to talk about the very first time I used them as decor though.
Purchased these 8 plates about 8 years ago. Figured we could have them matted and framed to achieve a gallery wall of art. In the classic and traditional style, I long admired in my Elle decor and House beautiful magazines I subscribe to. Was immediately drawn to these colourful vintage, exquisitely illustrated prints. Swipe ⬅️ for closer views.
Matting and framing however aren’t so cheap, even though we frequently used the services of a local guy, who was very fairly priced.
While shopping at a discount imports store, spotted these brushed gold tone frames for just $5 each! Their large size and modern lines are just the look I had hoped to achieve. Our regular framer, custom matted the plates for us for an additional $2.5 each.
The bookplates themselves cost $34 including shipping. The whole project came in under $100. Not bad for a statement, one of a kind art installation! They’ve held a major part of our wall real estate, ever since, and garnered many compliments.
All in all it was a very satisfying and high impact project, whilst staying in the confines of a limited budget.
As my mother likes to jest, I have champagne taste on a beer budget, but I make it work. 😬😏 #budgehomelove If you have a budget friendly home decor idea you’re proud of. Share the love! 💕
Have a great Tuesday everyone! 🤗💖
Originally we were going to hang a variety of wicker, woven, or cane bowls on the wall. Then we realized that anybody sitting on the bench, would end up almost wearing them as a party hat. 😳 So. We didn’t. Sometimes function wins.
Go big or go home.... here’s another stunning shot by @stephenbusken from the shoot that i styled in this house designed by @studiolifestyle_ Who else could handle two stories of wood, white and marble in their place? I know I could especially if it looked anything like this
I love my tiny apartment in Brooklyn because it feels like my little getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. ✨🏙
Whenever possible, I try to collect things made by local designers that I know or admire because it makes those things feel extra special. 💕
Altogether, I would say that my place is mish-mash of classic designs meet local makers meet junk-shop finds meet DIY projects... yet it still somehow comes together (I hope!). But there is always something a little cheeky and unapologetically queer, which is what makes my place *me*! 💁🏻♂️ #MyChappySpace @chappyapp @trnknyc
There’s nothing better than starting the week off with something pretty to look at like this mood board for one of my sweet sweet clients @fayesfaithphotography 😍.
It also doesn’t hurt that it is 65 and sunny here today. What are you up to this beautiful Monday?
Always best to look at your paint options in different weather conditions. This cloudy, rainy day is making these whites look completely different than they did yesterday! What are your tips for choosing paint colors?
