inspiring interior via @TRNKNYC on instagram. / sfgirlbybay

i found myself down this particular rabbit hole after seeing that fabulous painting (just below) on instagram and from there i was lead to TRNK-NYC. i’ve long admired TRNK and their philosophy about design is right in line with mine: “Our ideal home is considered, yet approachable. It feels collected, not decorated. We’ve hand-picked a unique assortment that together strike this rare balance — a contemporary home, rich with contrast and character.” TRNK’s collections are all about creating personal spaces that speak to who we are, and how we think about ourselves and how we live. what i like about their eclectic homewares and furniture is that blend so seemlessly with vintage pieces and they never look cookie-cutter. their styling is impeccable and very liveable. we’ve featured them on instagram worthy, so be sure and check that out, and follow @TRNKNYC for more.

Elif Filyos is a former lawyer turned Montreal-based blogger who runs the Fashion Medley. Although she’s mostly known for her fashion-related work, her Instagram feed has a hearty dose of interiors inspiration. She’ s got that muted, French-tinged, cosmopolitan aesthetic, and I love how adding something sculptural, curvy and a little quirky keeps things interesting and from getting too conservative. I’m especially fond of her apartment’s blown glass accessories–that amazing mushroom lamp, the standing spiral full of pampas, and the clear vase on her dresser. She’s really made me reconsider adding a little more blown glass and acrylic into my own home!

cheers, ezz.

one plant wonders.

even though i have nothing but admiration for you urban jungle lovers, personally the only place i can maintain a lot of plant life is outdoors — i love playing in my garden! but indoors, i’m more of a one plant wonder kinda girl. i like just one or two (max) plants or trees in a room, and very often opt for a couple of large branches in a big vase over a planted pot. but i do agree that greenery really adds warmth and life to a room and i think one strategically placed plant or vase really make a lovely impact on a room. try to imagine any of these spaces without plant life and i think you’ll get my drift — kind of cold, right? also, a little easier to take care of, for those of us without a green thumb. and, if you’re a hiker or urban wanderer like me, it’s even fun to forage for branches in the wild.
