CAN I LIVE HERE / THE "GREEN" HOUSE

for this australian home, the word “green” has multiple applications. you might be referring to the collection of cacti, palms and succulents that grow throughout the house. or you could be talking about that amazing shade of green that is used in the most perfect places. the word “green” also defines the eco-friendly mission upon which this living space was created: a sustainable and impossibly chic method to urban living.

i really love using the color green in kitchens (as last seen here). it feels clean, homey, unexpected. although the color made me fall for this kitchen upon first glance, it is the seamless use of squares throughout the home that i really love. you can find squares in the kitchen and bathroom tile, that amazing grid partition, and the retro square wall that frames the patio. there is a sense of simplicity and minimalism yet there are so many patterns hidden if you take a second look.

one thing you might notice is the amount of concrete used in the living space. it was an intentional eco-friendly decision which might have translated as stark and cold — not the best material for a cozy retreat. somehow this house feels the exact opposite. it feels relaxing, light, natural. the homeowners used a mixture of recycled materials and found or vintage accents (plus plenty of plants) to add warmth. so smart.

i love love love the unexpected green tub. in all honesty, i’ve always wanted a colorful tub for my bathroom and now i think mine will have to be a similar emerald hue. it’s a surprise accent and it pairs nicely with the grid motif, uneven concrete, and stark white faucets.

this beautiful patio is amazing outdoor space for urban living. i especially love the square retro accent wall and the way the homeowner decided to mix reclaimed wood with rusting metals.

MISS PRINTS IS ON TUMBLR

i've decided to start a tumblr! a moodboard of what's catching my eye. 

check it out here, or under the MOOD tab. 


THE COLLECTION WITH THE CACTUS PRINT BLAZER

this collection makes me so happy. the southwestern inspiration! the candy-colored stripes! the cactus blazer! all in impossibly cool-girl shapes. it's just so good. 

i stumbled upon Mira Mikati while putting together my Emoji Fever post, and couldn't get this fun collection off my mind. a relatively new designer, Mira Mikati set off on on her own in 2012. her pieces are clearly tongue-and-cheek and have a sense of humor. aka she makes the idea of throwing on a coat covered in emojis sound the the right thing to do. (which it is btw). this is her second collection. 

my 4 favorites from Mikati's Spring 2016 collection:

candy colored maxi dress with shower shoes. i especially love the pattern itself: solid stripes mixed with multicolored stripes.

i love that this fabric looks like it was pulled out of my childhood coloring book. also cute nail color.

a effortless shape, and beautiful bold green. plus shower shoes.
