MOOD / LATE FALL BUT PRE-HOLIDAY

hello! i wanted to share this cool moodboard with you guys — i put this together the night before i started my new job (!!!) and it’s a peek of what i’ve been inspired by over the past week. lately that means mustard with mauve, the square tiles we recently added to our kitchen, and my obvious obsession with 70s decor. this roundup is not quite holiday, but has wintery vibes: silver stars, chanel sheepskin jacket (yes), oversized statement earrings, black strappy sandals, fig tarts, pink hair…all so good:

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.
