we’ve made it through yet another week of 2020, much of it painful, but some of it uplifting especially when we see positive changes resulting from the public outcry, and yet we’re still figuring out how to adjust to living with corona. it’s been a lot! i’m hunkering down at home still and seeking out good design to share with you in a lot of new places and for me, that’s been really inspiring. this week’s friday finds are pretty eclectic, and i seem to be very into oversized lighting! i hope you like them as much as i do. have a restful weekend, one and all.

  1. this insanely cool dining room table base is just one of the inspiring eclectic pieces in this fabulous barcelona home tour. i’m sure it must be custom, but i love how it mimics the mirror behind it. and that canary yellow tabletop is just dreamy!
  2. @mrjasongrant is one of my favorite stylists from down under, and i’ve been influenced by his talent an awful lot in my own laguna beach cottage. his dining table with its oversized paper lantern in army green from hk living paired with that Oversized resin clamshell are giving me all new ideas and inspiration.
  3. this beautiful bohemian room is what i like to call celebratory decay — sometimes it’s a good idea to leave aged walls as is, especially in this case. then layer up the room with vintage rugs, rich textiles and pillows and add a giant paper lantern (can you tell i have a big crush on those?) and boom! i love it all.
  4. i love the look of this rather french chinoiserie wallpapered bar and hi-fi station tucked into an unassuming ‘secret’ closet. it’s such a perfectly unexpected pairing of mid-century modern and a d├ęcor style inspired by the traditional art and culture of China, Japan, and other Asian countries.
  5. this ornate bedroom in an italian villa in sicily is the kind of place i saw all over palermo on my last trip there and was lucky enough to spend a few nights in one (and quite inexpensively, i might add). i could definitely stay in this incredible room — i love how the bed is centered in the room, and that chandelier – wow!
  6. how about this plant-filled living room, complete with an oversized disco ball? i love how they’ve built terraced garden shelving right into and above the fireplace mantel — such a brilliant idea for a defunct non-working fireplace.
  7. that crazy-talented interior designer leanne ford can do no wrong in my book, and this fabulous dining room is a prime example of her skills. i love the unusual pairing of those mid-century modern cherner chairs around an antique queen anne legged table (painted her signature white, of course).
  8. i love this very serene dining space featured in architectural digest’s summer issue. the colors, the floors, and all the glass and mirrors give it such a light, lovely feeling. it’s the milan home of @tamumcpherson, founder of all the pretty birds, an inspiring fashion, wellness, culture, and beauty site you might like to check out.

One response to “friday finds.”

  1. I looooove the dining table from the Barcelona home tour. (The dining chairs too!) It’s a strong lovely piece that stands on its own with the mirror interfering with its unique beauty.
