Spaces We Love – Rowena’s Scandinavian Home

May 3, 2016

Rowena is an interior stylist and blogger with the most beautiful Scandinavian home. She and her husband live in an 85 sq. meter (that’s ~900 ft.) home with their 4 kids! She loves to DIY, and most of her furniture is bought secondhand (my kinda gal!) Here are a few snapshots of her beautiful home. If you can’t get enough, check out her Instagram for many more! Also, if you’re feelin’ the Scandinavian look, check out this spotlight I did a while back.

I love how simple this sweet little room is. Perfect for a small house with lots of kids!

Spaces we Love – Chelsea from StyleMutt Home

April 13, 2016
Eclectic Living Room

Chelsea and Cate of StyleMutt Home (a home decor resource site) are sisters-in-law and designers from the outskirts of DC. I think it’s so awesome that these 2 teamed up to create their design business. Their business has grown quite a bit in the last 5 years! It began as a small furniture refinishing business in a garage, and now has grown to include home decor, design styling, and consultation.

I love the term StyleMutt because I feel like that’s exactly what I am.Screen Shot 2016-04-13 at 5.13.49 PM

Chelsea’s living room is proof that many styles can be mixed together to create an awesome space. My favorite thing in the room? Those drool-worthy leather chairs. Cate refinished them (I’d love to see what they looked like before!)

You know those Saturday’s when you wake up and you feel that sudden rush of excitement because you just realized it’s Saturday and you have the whole day ahead of you with nothing planned? That’s the feeling looking at this room gives me. For some reason I want nothing more than to sit on that couch on a Saturday morning with a coffee.

Chelsea’s peacock chair is what initially caught my eye on Instagram. She scored that puppy for $10. There’s a tiny consignment shop near my parents house that’s had a peacock chair in the window for a while now, and I’ve been meaning to stop in and check it out.

Since starting this blog, I’ve come across some amazing designers/design obsessed people who’s spaces I love to stare at and cry marvel. I’ve become so immersed in this community that i’m starting to feel like all I do all day is look at pictures of pretty spaces. (I’m feeling a bit like Andy Warhol when I say that…)981b783b560762e2784629ff8dbb351b

So, as the old saying goes, “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” (or in my case… if you can’t BE them, post photos of them on your blog) So here’s the first of hopefully many Spaces we Love features (we being me and my 3 cats, obviously)

This first feature comes from someone I stumbled across on Instagram. Her tag is @ro_lande, she’s Dutch, and she’s got the most beautiful, simple home. It’s the perfect mix of minimal and cozy. Room to breathe, but not too empty. If I were to go to rehab, this is where I would want it to be. My new friend sent me some gorgeous photos of her space to share with you. Enjoy, and don’t forget to clean up your drool before you go 🙂
