Friday Furnishings

27 Apr

Friday Furnishings is a weekly series about some of my favorite interior design features I’ve com across in my searches to create my dream home. It’s not everyone’s thing, but I love interior design. So here it is.

I love pairing neutrals with bursts of bright color. In clothing, makeup, and of course, furniture. I love, love, love the gray wall and couch with the turquoise and purple pillows. The blue carpet looks surprisingly classy underneath the glass table, and how fabulous is that chandelier? Ugh, dream living room right here, people. (Even the pictures on the molding! Perfection.)

Ceilings. Why do I always forget that you can use ceilings as another way to express your style in your home? I think that the pattern on this ceiling is elegant, simple, and very beautiful. (Plus the chandelier. Please appreciate that as well.) Bonus: If you want to recreate this look in your own home, there’s a tutorial for it on the website!

When it comes to bathrooms and powder rooms, I generally prefer the decor to be antique/delicate, and so I really love this beautiful sink and mirror. The colors are beautiful, pairing the gold with muted creams/whites. Stunning!

I think that this area is either a home library or part of a bedroom, but either way I love how cozy it looks! From the cute curtains and comfy chair, to the glass-pane bookshelves, this room seems comfortable and homey- just the way I would want my home library to be, since right now mine is really just a lot of shelves with no seating.

Dream bathtub right here, people! A matte purple clawfoot tub with beautiful white details? YES AND PLEASE. (The wallpaper isn’t so bad, either!)

I think that antlers are beautiful, but I would never have a real pair of them, so I adore these faux, decorative antlers made from cast-iron. These are designed to be used as a wall-hook, but I think they would look beautiful as a decoration. They’re available for $28 from Etsy.

That’s it for this week’s Friday Furnishings! What do you think of the decor listed above? Love it? Not your style? Let me know!
