Out of all the rooms in my home, I definitely spend the most time in my study. I’ve been wanting to spruce it up for awhile now, and when the amazing interior group, Laurel & Wolf, offered to help, I gladly took them up on it. I basically wanted to create a vibrant creative space to write in and come up with ideas for the blog – something that would get my creative juices flowing and keep me inspired.
Because I love to read, I wanted one corner to be reminiscent of a library, so we installed bookshelves and painted the walls a dark grey hue, inspired by the interior of my favorite London bar, The Rosewood Hotel. I opted for lots of dark wood for depth, richness, and texture, and even scored an incredible wooden antique desk from my new favorite design site, Chairish, for some old world charm. For a personal touch, I added family photos like a pic of my granny riding a horse in the 30s (it always puts a smile on my face), books that I read back in college, and some vintage-inspired pineapple and bone bowls (so fun!). For extra impact, we designed an art wall with shots from my favorite photog, Slim Aarons, and to complete the room, added some yummy scented candles and my favorite flowers, hydrangeas. I love the finished look so much, I know I’ll be spending even more time in here whipping up some fun stuff to share with you guys!
